LONDON (PIX11) – Kanye West is no stranger when it comes to telling it how it is so it came to no surprise when he went on a rant during a headlining show in London this past weekend.
His targets: Justin Timberlake, Taylor Swift, the Recording Academy –- and pretty much, a good portion of the music industry. Video of the rant, filmed by a concert-goer, has since gone viral on YouTube.
While attacking who he called “business people” and artists who sell out, he unloaded his first round at JT.
“I got love for Hov, but I ain’t f—in’ with that ‘Suit & Tie,'” he shouted, referring to Timberlake’s new comeback single that features Ye’s Watch The Throne collaborator Jay-Z. The lashing got quite the reaction from the crowd.
The disgruntled rapper took aim at Timberlake just days after the pop star and Jay announced an upcoming 12-date summer stadium tour.
Kanye continued on, sending a message to the Recording Academy.
“Remind me why we in this s—? Tell the Grammys they can suck my d—,” he proclaimed.
The rant proceeded where he mocked artists – who he doesn’t name, but you can figure it out – who get multi-million dollar endorsement deals from big corporations to push products like soft drinks.
“Can I sell your drink for you please? So you can help me put on a better show,” he screeched.
During a different set, Yeezy turns it up a notch, re-igniting a feud with Taylor Swift – who he infamously ambushed on stage during MTV’s Video Music Awards in 2009.
“Am I the only one who is not crazy? Because what happens, what happens… when bulls— like the Taylor Swift beat Beyonce.”
As he wraps up the impromptu monologue, Kanye said he has love for everyone, but maintains that the music industry needs to be more “evened-out” and “fair.”
There were no immediate responses from Timberlake, Swift or the Recording Academy.
