With some help from the producer of the classic track as well as The Roots, Nas performed his Illmatic cut tonight during his visit to Jimmy Fallon's late-night show. Illmatic XX drops next Tuesday (April 15th), the day after the project turns 20 years old.

As a bonus, they performed "The World Is Yours" as well.
