Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake pulled out all the stops for "History of Rap 6" on "The Tonight Show" Wednesday (Sept. 9).

The duo stepped things up with a little Whodini, Nelly, Will Smith, MC Hammer, Salt and Pepa's "Let's Talk About Sex" (what?!), Beastie Boys ... and also Jimmy Fallon really wants to rap two things that JT just won't let him do.


First, he wants to perform "Straight Outta Compton" by N.W.A. But as Timberlake reminds Fallon, he's not straight outta Compton, he's straight outta upstate New York.

Fallon also really wants to do some "Informer" by Snow -- a licky boom-boom down -- but Timberlake (and The Roots) are like, "Uh, no, dude."


Definitely one of their best efforts yet and a nice way to celebrate five years of doing it -- the first "History of Rap" happened Sept. 29, 2010.
