Fallon got bars, don't ya know?
Jimmy Fallon has showcased his rapping abilities on his late-night show a few times, but never have we seen him enter a rap battle. While the art of battle rap might not be as prominent as it once was, it looks like Fallon is trying to bring it back.
TMZ obtained footage of Jimmy Fallon destroying Post Malone's artist Tyla Yaweh during a rap battle at Paddy Reilly's Music Bar in New York City. Post, Fallon and Tyla made their way to the bar after the "Better Now" singer's appearance on "The Tonight Show." During the first part of the video, Fallon raps, "You like to wear a sweatshirt that says "Joy Rich"/ but really, you're a boy, bitch," which is received to loud applaud by those at the bar and a co-sign from Posty himself. Unfortunately, Tyla's rebuttal wasn't that strong.
Clearly, it was all fun as Fallon gave Tyla a hug after all was said and done.
Despite taking an L in the rap battle against Fallon, Yaweh's been making some serious waves lately. This past summer, he and Ski Mask The Slump God assisted CHXPO on "Chemicals." Shortly after, he linked up with OVO-affiliate Preme for their song, "Goals." He's also set to perform at Post Malone's inaugural Posty Fest later this month.
