Remember back in February when Kanye West took a shot at Justin Timberlake during a show in London’s Hammersmith Apollo?
Yeah, well we almost forgot about it too until we remember what West had said to his crowd of followers. To this day, the assumption might be that ‘Yeezus’ was jealous that his best friend, Jay-Z was trading him in for Timberlake which led to him saying, “”I got love for Hov, but I ain’t fucking with that ‘Suit & Tie’.”
Cue the one person feud that was forgotten until today when Timberlake brought it back into the public’s knowledge.
In an interview with MTV reporter, Sway on In the Morning, Timberlake commented on what the rapper had said, and that it really didn’t bother him much. “At the end of the day it’s just music,” he said. “I love the record, I love ‘Suit & Tie’. It reminds me of the music I grew up listening to. I respect his opinion because I think he’s a genius, but I don’t share that opinion.”
While the “feud” did got into a black hole of oblivion to the world, Timberlake said that the two of them settled their difference at the MTV Video Music Awards last week where West performed “Blood on the Leaves” and Timberlake performed a medley of his songs as well as accepted a couple of awards including the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Awards.
“I told [Kanye], ‘I fuck with you, in a way that you probably don’t even understand. I get what you do.’ We’ve never worked together, so I don’t think that he fully understands what it is that I can do. I love ‘Yeezus’, I love that album. I think he’s ahead of a lot, especially in his genre. I think people are going to appreciate it a lot more in the future.”
As if simply making up wasn’t enough, Timberlake did make a comment that there might be some collaborating in the future. Well, the best way I know how to do that is for us to just sit down and play music.”
So can anyone see a collaboration going on between these two? I don’t know.
