Over the weekend Justin Timberlake hosted “SNL”, for the third time. The pop star may have served up what some call “the smoothest diss ever to Kanye West,” during his recent “Saturday Night Live” performance.
Sources report during a show in London, West went on a freestyle rant and brought up Timberlake’s collaboration with Jay-Z, “Suit & Tie,” saying, “I got love for Hov, but I ain’t f–kin’ with that ‘Suit & Tie.’”
Timberlake decided to respond to West’s rant by switching up his lyrics to his hit song. While performing “Suit & Tie,” Timberlake changed the lyric “S**t so sick got a hit and picked up a habit” to “My hit’s so sick got rappers acting dramatic.”
Later, Jay-Z came out to join him on “Suit & Tie.” For his second song, the Tennessee native performed the follow-up single, “Mirrors,” off his “20/20 Project” album, due out March 19.
