Timberlake and Fallon have a long history of rap battles, so when the award-winning singer made an appearance on The Tonight Show on Wednesday – probably to help Fallon with the ratings after Stephen Colbert's first Late Show – the duo wasted no time breaking out into the latest installment of “History of Rap.”
The energetic performance – which was just as good their previous mashups – featured a mix of classic and newer jams including Drake‘s "Know Yourself," Big Sean‘s "I Don’t Mess With You," the Beastie Boys’ "Fight For Your Right" and a remixed version of R. Kelly’s "Ignition."
While the performance is quite epic in its entirety, the rapping duo had somewhat of an awkward moment during Straight Outta Compton.
“Jimmy, we’ve been through this before – you are not Straight Outta Compton, you are Straight Outta Upstate New York,” Timberlake told the host politely.

Earlier in the day, the rapping duo was spotted dancing to Beyoncé’s "Single Ladies" at the U.S. Open during Roger Federer’s quarterfinals match with Richard Gasquet.
