In late February, Kanye West went on a Kanye West-esque rant in London about life, the Grammys, the 2006 Franco–Italian–Spanish Middle East Peace Plan, everything really. He also went after Justin Timberlake because, although he has “love for Hov,” Kanye “ain’t f*cking with that “Suit & Tie.” Remind me again why we in this sh*t?”
For the Tumblr mashups, obviously. Anyway, on last night’s SNL, Timberlake responded to Ye’s remarks, by subtly changing a line in the unf*ckable “Suit & Tie.” The original goes, “Sh*t so sick/Got a hit and picked up a habit,” but with the Three Amigos looking on, JT instead sang, “My hits so sick/Got rappers acting dramatic.” It’s a small tweak, but that’s all the attention Timberlake should have given West’s comments. In more important news, model Misa Campo released her take on the “Suit & Tie” video, which is instantly 7x better than the original.
And the original’s pretty great.
