Justin Timberlake Speaks On “Kanye Diss” With Jimmy Fallon


(AllHipHop News) Pop superstar Justin Timberlake continued his promo run on late night television this week when he stopped by Late Night with Jimmy Fallon yesterday. Fallon could not avoid asking the singer about the perceived dig at rapper Kanye West while performing on Saturday Night Live over the weekend.

During his performance of “Suit & Tie” on SNL Timberlake changed one of the lines of the song to say, “my hit’s so sick got rappers acting dramatic.”

Many observers took that lyric change as a response to Kanye’s recent rant in London where he made the statement, “I got love for Hov, but I ain’t fucking with that ‘Suit & Tie’.”

While on Fallon, Timberlake addressed his SNL rendition after the host pointed out that the lyrics were different.

“Did it seem that way? I don’t remember that. Did I change a line? It is live. You know really everyone keep calm,” said Timberlake.

Fallon then added, “keep calm and ‘Kanye on’ you guys.”

“For the record, I absolutely love Kanye,” Timberlake admits. “We love Kanye right?”

Kanye also had love for Justin at one point too. While West doesn’t seem to be a fan of Justin’s new single, he did praise the former boy band member as his greatest musical rival from his generation back in 2007.

“My biggest inspiration and biggest competition is Justin Timberlake,” West told XXL magazine. “We push each other. I look at me and Justin like Prince and Michael Jackson in their day.”

During his Fallon appearance JT goes on talks about his new album The 20/20 Experience and his upcoming summer stadium tour with frequent Kanye West collaborator Jay-Z. He also performed the song “Pusher Love Girl.”

The 20/20 Experience will be released on March 19 on RCA Records. The entire album can be streamed on iTunes.

    If you’re still supporting this Keebler (not that damn elf but what they are known to make… hint: it ain’t their cookies either lol) do us a favor & take a long walk off a short cliff. I never liked this infiltrator & what he did to Janet was uncalled for (yeah his ass knew what he was doing) & so typical of Keeblers…..and then lie about it to save face….Man, f*ck his album & him!!

      I agree the Janet fiasco he knew exactly what he was doing and like another blogger posted it’s only for his album sales he’ll deal with us.

    Kanye West is mental, he’s a genius but he’s crazy. He says what he feels that’s what made his hole graduation albums so great.

  • That intro was dope with that timberland production.

    I thought Justin Timberlake handled this Kanye West question quite well. I think Timberlake is right, we do like Kanye, even if we’re unsure about his feelings on Jay-Z and Timberlake anymore. I was commuting home from work at DISH when this was on last night so I recorded it on my DVR. I’ve recorded this whole season on my DISH Hopper and I still have room to record more, because it can record and store up to 2,000 hours of entertainment. This means I can keep this classic episode, and have plenty of room for more seasons.

    • RapItUp

      well… despite your blatant and shameless promotion and advertisement.. you did at least comment on the article.. seems fair..

  • Dave Crockett
