Kanye West Is Butthurt About the Grammys and Hates Jay-Z + Justin Timberlake’s ‘Suit & Tie’ [VIDEO]
Kanye West is reminding everyone why he annoyed us so much for so long. After a relatively rant-free, quiet period, the egomaniacal rapper and future Kim Kardashian baby daddy went in on the Grammys, white people, Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake. Because of course he did.
At around the four minute mark of the video above, West begins the rant (that went down last night at the Apollo in London) by saying he is all about creativity and that he “hates business people,” despite helping to spawn the antichrist with arguably the epitome of famewhoring capitalism (Kapitalism?).
West goes on to sing his anger: “Remind me again why we’re in this s—? / Remind me again why the Grammys could suck my d—? / Remind me again who’s the original Superfly? / And I got love for Hov, but I’m not f—ing with that ‘Suit & Tie’.”
He rants some more about business and sponsorships before lashing out, “They always talking I come one too strong with this s— … I lost my f—ing momma / So I could give a f— about your comments.”
He goes back into prose towards the end, delivering a bizarre monologue about selling out.
Other gems from the performance include West complaining, “I’ve never won a Grammy against a white person” and insisting that he was promised an opening performance for the Grammys four years ago, but that it was revoked in favor of Lady Gaga.
He also expressed anger with President Barack Obama, who previously called him a jackass, muttering, “I don’t give a f— what the president got to say.”
Basically, Yeezy hates the industry that he’s in because he thinks it’s too commercial, but has no qualms whatsoever about continually rapping about how rich he is. Until he and K-Dash donate every penny of they’ve earned, West and his hypocrisy can take a seat.
