It was a light jab, but it served its purpose. Justin Timberlake used the big stage on Saturday Night Live to respond to comments Kanye West made about Timberlake's hit song "Suit & Tie" back in February.

During a performance of the infectious single the singer changed the lyrics from "Aww, s--- so sick, got a hit and picked up a habit" to "my hit's so sick got rappers acting dramatic."
Of course this was in response to West slamming the record while at a show in London. "I got love for Hov, but I ain't f----- with that 'Suit & Tie,'" the outspoken rapper told the crowd during a now infamous rant about the ills of the music industry.

Though he performed with Timberlake on SNL, Jay-Z has yet to address the drama. West surprised many by trashing the single knowing that his "big brother" was featured on it.

Things have the potential to get odd in this superstar trifecta. JT and Jay-Z are set to go out on the Legends of the Summer tour in July and there's a chance Mr. West could be a special guest for Hov on any number of dates.

Stay tuned to see how this unfolds.
