Kanye West dissed Justin Timberlake’s “Suit & Tie” song at a concert on Feb. 23. And Justin performed the song on Saturday Night Live on March 9, where he appeared to respond to Kanye’s diss through his performance. Kanye originally told a packed crowd in London, “I got love for Hov, but I ain’t f–king with that ‘Suit & Tie.’” Very much like Taylor Swift disses Harry Styles, Justin hit back through his song lyrics.
While performing “Suit & Tie” on March 9, Justin changed his original lyrics, “S**t so sick/Got a hit and picked up a habit” to “My hits so sick/Got rappers acting dramatic.”
It’s very slick of Justin to respond through song, but we don’t think Kanye will sit lightly on this. In true Kanye fashion, we should expect some sort of retaliation in the next day or so. Maybe Jay-Z, who is good friends with both performers, can mend this tarnished relationship.
