Kanye West may be a fashion maven, but he doesn't have much love for a "Suit & Tie."
At his Friday London gig at the Hammersmith Apollo, West took about 10 minutes out of his set to tear into Justin Timberlake's new single, the Grammys and corporate sponsorship of pop music.
It's classic Ye: making enemies of powerful figures, lambasting institutions that fail to recognize his genius, and a continued wrinkle in his complicated relationship with music and commerce.
The "Suit & Tie" jab might be most surprising, as the song prominently features his longtime collaborator and "Watch the Throne"-mate Jay Z. "I got love for Hov, but I ain’t ... with that ‘Suit & Tie’," West said. Perhaps if the song were titled "Suit & Kilt," he'd be on board?
