Justin Timberlake brought the moves and the music by reuniting with Jimmy Fallon to perform their latest collaboration in the “History of Rap” series.

This medley includes hits from R. Kelly, Jay Z, LL Cool J, Wu-Tang Clan, Kendrick Lamar, and the Beastie Boys, and while Fallon is ready to go all-out at any moment, Timberlake is more than ready to bring him back to reality at the same time—gently reminding him that he’s not really straight outta Compton.

After they filmed The Tonight Show, Fallon and Timberlake took their bromance straight to the tennis courts to watch the U.S. Open—and even continued to entertain the crowd in the middle of the semifinals match between Roger Federer and Richard Gasquet.
