Justin Timberlake disses Kanye West on Saturday Night Live?

If you caught Saturday Night Live on March 9, you may not have caught one of the lyric changes Justin Timberlake threw in during his performance of “Suit And Tie.” While performing, Justin Timberlake changed the original lyrics in the second verse from “Shit so sick, got a hit and picked up a habit” to “My hits so sick, got rappers acting dramatic.” The lyric change was a sly yet nationally aired diss directed towards Kanye West’s comments made on February 23 in London, where Kanye West told the concert crowd, “I got love for Hov, but I ain’t fuckin’ with that ‘Suit and Tie.'”

By this point in time, Kanye West isn’t shy about opening his mouth and speaking his mind, especially when he told the same London crowd, “Remind me again why the Grammys can suck my dick?” Maybe not being apart of Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z’s Legends of the Summer tour, and all the hype around the newly formed duo has sparked a little jealousy?

Whether Mr. West is keen on the collaboration or not, Justin Timberlake’s Saturday Night Live ratings don’t lie. The Hollywood Reporter reports that the five-time host’s preliminary Nielsen figures earned the episode a rating of 5.9 and a 15 share. These ratings made his airing one of the largest since Charles Barkley hosted back in January 2012.
