Justin Timberlake Disses Kanye West On "Saturday Night Live"

Justin Timberlake fires back at Kanye West with a thinly-veiled shot.

Two weeks ago, Kanye West made headlines during a London performance after he said, "I got love for Hov, but I ain't fucking with that 'Suit & Tie,' " referring to the Jay-Z assisted Justin Timberlake single.

Now, it appears as though Timberlake has responded.

Serving as host and music guest on Saturday Night Live on March 9th, Timberlake performed "Suit & Tie," and switched a line in his second verse from "And aw, shit so sick, got a hit and picked up a habit," to "My hit's so sick, got rappers acting dramatic."

So far, Jay-Z hasn't responded to Kanye's barb, nor has Justin Timberlake before switching the line.

Jay-Z and Timberlake are scheduled to go on tour together this summer.

    Bout time someone hit Kanye back with some real talk. Timberlake album playing allll day : http://smarturl.it/WOTEREVOStream 20/20 Experience is so smooth!

  • Luke Yung

    yo anyone else catch when JT said "and he got fixed up to the nines" on both hooks along with "and he dressed in that dress i like" in the last one?

  • Yeezy Gets Beezy

    You can tell this is setup, its a publicity stunt. Jay Z is like Kanye's brother, Timbaland is cool with Kanye. All of them have worked together at one point. Its like a triangle, its fishy you can tell its all setup just to get attention.

  • notafanofprstunts

    Look, they both make good music. JT just doesnt embarass himself in public, if he does he doesn't care. It's funny watching Kanye get mad in public. Eat a snickers bitch. Get off that diva shit, lets face it, Kanye has never put out a bad album. Great producer, Great Rapper. Terrible in public, well instead of buying girls clothes and manpurses. Get on some fly shit or Go Back To College lmao

  • Momento

    Mxe.! Guys really like to gimmick big time. Because he knows that his album its about to drop, now they are starting unnecessary issues.

  • W9D

    Whatever beef comes or doesn't come of this is irrelevant, but all y'all who are hating on Justin Timberlake just sound dumb. Almost everything he's put out since his N'SYNC days has been innovative and well-executed, and his new record is by far his best output. "Pusher Love Girl" and "That Girl" are two of the best R&B songs I've heard in several years. He may have some feminine mannerisms at times, but dude is hella talented and willing to push the envelope musically. There's a reason Timbaland loves to work with him. Kanye West's just being a baby like always. He's a selfish talent who no longer tries to break the mold in my opinion. I highly recommend giving Justin Timberlake's new album a listen. It leaked yesterday and it has very few weak spots. http://www.hiphopaddict.net/2013/03/album-leak-justin-timberlake-2020.html

    yeezy a faggish genius and jt a faggish idyeet ...fuck em if they can't get along

  • runtellthat

    I think that Justin is moving in the right direction, he is showing his maturity he older now, and the song did not need Jay-Z on it..You wonder if Kayne is dissed Justin, because he's hitting with Jay-Z or Jay-Z for moving on and making a hit with someone else..Sensitive Premaddona Drama!

    LOL 2 hugely overblown talentless faggots fighting like girls on shitty records crying on stage. kanye west = closet homo who thinks he's music god even though he he can't write his own raps or make his own beats justin timberlake = a boyband faggot who got his sugar touched by lou pearlman who reinvented himself as a solo artist by making wannabe michael jackson records on timbaland beats i hope both of their careers are ended soon

    What's odd about this story is that I'dve thought Kanye would be one of the few rappers who WOULD like "Suit and Tie".

      I cant stand comments like this. I don't understand how that makes hip hop soft. Who the fuck cares who disses who and as a whole cant won't affect the genre in any way.

    I wonder what Jay-z thinks about all this. Him and Ye clearly have a good friendship, but he disses a song that his friend is on. That's gotta be bad for business. Jay must not have a problem with JT's reply cuz I'm sure he knew the lyrics were gonna be changed for this performance. I fuck with Ye and he definitely speaks his mind, but some shit you gotta just keep to yourself or say behind closed doors

  • Confused Reader

    Although, I am a reader of DX. I just hate sensationalized content. Why does everything that is replied to a diss? Is it to get clicks or your comment section all riley'd up? (rhetorical question) To diss, in context, is to disrespect a person or thing. The funny thing is I'm quite sure Yeezy was just playing on words during his rant, stating that he ain't feeling suit & tie in reference to business person and how he hates business people. Those are my 2 cents on this, but yes, it's only entertainment.. pretty lame though.

  • Anonymous

    "Jay-z delivered a boring, average verse at best(as he has been doing for years now)" ^ took 2Chainz' style for that rap

  • jerryc

    The fact that suit and tie was an instant hit just proves once again that people have lost their own taste. Social media has made everyone take on the same opinion, and its ruining music. The song was ok for justin timberlake. Jay-z delivered a boring, average verse at best(as he has been doing for years now)

    • RADIO?

      The radio? Who in their right mind listens to terrestrial radio? If I want to listen to the same 8-10 songs all day I can put my son's ipod nano on shuffle repeat. Radio is for people that aspire to be nothing.

      yeah it was crazy how hard the powers that be worked this song. I don't remember a song being worked as hard as they did this justin timberlake song. I remember when it debuted they had commrcials all on the radio talking about how they are going to play it at the top of EVERY HOUR.

      Yes sir. He rants every time he has a new project coming out. When children see they get attention from acting out they keep acting out. It's learned behavior. I guess the same stands for entertainment.

    • zerocool

      What does race have to do with this you ignorant fuck. Why is it so mamy are so quick to pull the fucken race card over some bullshit these days. Kanye was out on tour crying like a bitch on a nighly basis (while goofs like you jump on stage to lick his tears off his face ya gayfish) and all JT did was make a crack about it... good for him. Kanye is a Primmadonna anyhow and its quite funny Mr Nsync throws a diss at West. Thats how pathetic Kanye and his cry sessions has become. As for your history fail, the Canaanites were based out of the present day middle east therfore the idea they were caucasian if ridiculous. The only idiots that believe the Canaanites were white are dumb shits like yourself that believe the biblical account of the culture which would be inaccurate. So not only are you a racist prick you are also an uneducated douchebag!

    Who CARES about Justin Timberlake Why is he on a quote-on-quote [Hip-Hop] based site. He's lame with his " I be on my suit and tie " crap. He need to learn how to speak better. He know he don't talk like that.

    • TakeThisBieatch

      Hey Kanye suck*r! Check this out! Everybody knows what kinda fag Kanye is and again everybody know that if anyone has this kinda attitude, they wouldn't act like that. He's like a lil b*tch cuz cries all the time. I bought them blah blah, I did this for them blah blah etc. He's one of the biggest clowns & slaves in the industry and you claim that he's against corporate type people. Seriously you need a brain or stop sucking Kanye's d*ck! About JT, His answer was so classy. This is what a grown ass man does. And he doesn't act like a fashion pro or etc. Get'em bro!

  • Hardyhar

    Granted, Kanye started it by voicing his dislike of the song, but JT has always been and always will be a poser....when he was doing N'Sync (in other words, 20+ year old guys making music for 13 year old girls)...as well as now. Like Simon Cowell said about Timberlake, he's "just some white kid who's tried to act black over the last several years." You guys can hate on Kanye all you want (the skirt thing still makes me cringe), but people will never listen to JT 10+ years from now. On the other hand, College Dropout will always be a classic and I'll bump that shit till I've got grey hair!

    • Danielle

      im 25 yrs old now....been supporting JT since Nsync and will continue to do so.....yall just mad cuz hes talented and makin money and u arent. just admit it. artist know talent when they see it. Jay z saw it and rode wit it, snoop, pharell, timbaland,50 cent, three 6 i could keep going, not to mention he's also wrote for other artists as well. give the man credit where its due, u dont have to listen to him but for goodness sakes stay off the haterade it shows how insecure u really are :)

Now shut the fuck up you cornball crack baby motherfucker.
