Justin Timberlake and Saturday Night Live have a long history, and when he stopped by to host and perform on SNL tonight, you knew he’d go all out. Justin brought a big band with him (the Tennessee Kids) and a few well-practiced dancers, but of course Jay-Z had to show up for his “Suit & Tie” verse, and without fail, an enthusiastic Hov showed up.
As Complex points out, there was a slight lyric change to include a line about “hits so sick, got rappers acting dramatic,” most likely in response to Kanye’s recent rant. With these soft, indirect jabs, it’s almost like we’re seeing real life subtweets.
