Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon‘s collaborations for the “History of Rap” have become legendary, and for their sixth installment the pair channeled hip-hop icons N.W.A for a “Staight Outta Compton” tribute.
However, the “Tonight Show” host got so deep into character that he had to be pulled back and calmed down by Timberlake as he stormed the cameraman.
“Jimmy, we’ve been through this before … you are not Straight Outta Compton, you are Straight Outta Upstate New York,” he told Fallon.
“I just thought with the movie being so big and everyone talking about it …” Fallon mumbled in reply, before they decided to talk about something else, namely Salt-N-Pepa’s hit “Let’s Talk About Sex.”
Also featured in Timberlake and Fallon’s medley were R. Kelly and Jay Z’s “Fiesta,” LL Cool J‘s “Rock the Bells,” MC Hammer’s “U Can’t Touch This,” Kendrick Lamar’s “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe” and Drake‘s “Know Yourself.”
Earlier Wednesday, the friends took in some tennis action at the U.S. Open and were spotted dancing to Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” during a break in play while watching from the Emirates Airline Suite at Flushing Meadows in New York.
“The Tonight Show” airs at 11:35 p.m. on NBC.
