Timberlake's SNL performance included a veiled response to a recent Kanye rant targeting his "Suit & Tie" single with Jay-Z.
During one of his recent rants at the Hammersmith Apollo in London, Kanye Westexpressed his dislike for Justin Timberlake's "Suit & Tie" single, despite the fact that his close friend and collaborator Jay-Z is featured on the track. "I got love for Hov, but I aint fuckin' with that 'Suit & Tie'" were his exact words.
Two weeks later, the former 'N Sync frontman responded during a performance of the single on last night's episode of Saturday Night Live. The song includes the line "Shit so sick, got a hit and picked up a habit", which Timberlake changed to “My hit's so sick, got rappers acting dramatic.” Moments later, Jay joined him on stage to perform his verse.
How're we feeling about this? Who's in the right here? Stay tuned for West's inevitable response.
