HIP-POP REPORT WITH OZMAN: Did Justin Timberlake Diss Kanye West on "SNL"?
Huffington Post Reports:
Justin Timberlake may have served up the smoothest diss ever to Kanye West during his "Saturday Night Live" performance.
Last month 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.'"
On Saturday night, Timberlake appeared to subtly respond to West's rant by switching up his lyrics a bit, TMZ notes. 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.
Maybe it's all just a case of jealousy?
West's diss came after Timberlake and Jay-Z dropped the "Suit & Tie" single, performed together at the Grammys and announced their 12-date Legends of the Summer tour. In 2011, it was West who was touring with Jay-Z following the release of "Watch the Throne." He didn't make an appearance at the Grammys, saying during his rant, "The Grammys can suck my d**k."
