We had been waiting with bated breath to see if and/or when Justin Timberlake would respond to Kanye West's recent outburst during a London concert regarding the quality of his comeback single, Suit & Tie!
And during the musician's performance of the track, featuring Jay-Z, while serving as the host and musical guest of Saturday Night Live last night, JT fired back…in the slickest, off-the-cuff way possible!
Seriously! We had to rewind it to just make sure we heard him right, but IT HAPPENED!
Instead of singing the original lyrics:
"Sh-t so sick/Got a hit and picked up a habit."
Justin revised it to:
"My hits so sick/Got rappers acting dramatic."
Now THAT is a burn, folks!
And we can't help but wonder how Yeezy will take that - especially seeing as his Watch The Throne collaborator Jay was right up there on stage with him!
Then again, what should he expect after announcing to an entire audience of people that he "ain't f-ckin' with that Suit & Tie?!"
Guess they weren't f-ckin' with you, either, 'Ye!
Ch-ch-check out the performance (above), as well as JT's rendition of Mirrors later on in the evening…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
