The “Mercy” rapper is starting a brand new music feud.
Kanye West has spurred some head-turns in a recent on-stage rant that seemed to take aim at Justin Timberlake and his longtime pal and collaborator Jay-Z.
During a Saturday stop in London, the hip-hop mogul went off on a lyrical spiel, targeting the big business tendencies infiltrating the music industry.
“But I came here for the creativity, ‘cause… Creativity fuels everything,” announced Kanye. “I hate business people.”
It wasn’t long before the conversation turned to Timberlake and Jay-Z’s new collaboration.
“I got love for Hov, but I ain’t f*ckin’ with that ‘Suit & Tie,’” said Kanye.
JT and JZ recently announced their upcoming Legends of the Summer stadium tour. Having wrapped his recent Watch the Throne Tour with Jay-Z last summer, some fans have attributed the diss to jealousy. The Hov has found a new bestie to travel with…
West also jabbed at the Grammys and Taylor Swift, with whom he shares plenty of beef history with.
The speech went on for over 11 minutes with the repeating rap-chant-verse “remind me why we in this sh*t” coming in and out. Then he segued into his song “Clique,” a track that paints a picture of the exact luxurious lifestyle he’s bashing suits and corporations for providing him with.
“I’m going to make my music from my heart and I live and I die by everything that I say and I do,” he added. “It just feel sometimes like there are no good ideas and no real ideas and nothing sincere left.”
