The 'Clique' rapper criticised people's focus on wealth, as well as Jay-Z's collaboration 'Suit & Tie'.
Kanye West has come under fire for attacking Justin Timberlake, as well as several other topics, during a heated rant at his London concert this past weekend.
The 'All Of The Lights' played a show at the Hammersmith Apollo on Saturday evening (23rd February), where he attacked the 'SexyBack' singer for his new song 'Suit & Tie', a collaboration with Kanye's 'Watch The Throne' bandmate Jay-Z.
"Remind me again who's the original superbly. Man, I got love for Hov but I ain't f*****g with that 'Suit & Tie'," Kanye rapped, during a ten minute introduction to his song 'Clique'.
Kanye West's surprising attack on the US star followed him also criticising Taylor Swift, focusing once again on her beating Beyonce to win Best Female Video at the MTV VMAs 2009.
"Taylor Swift beat Beyonce at the Grammys? Beyonce be dancing in heels and s**t," Kanye rapped during the lengthy introduction.
The US rapper went on to criticise corporate sponsorships and wealth, as well as the Grammy Awards which took place earlier this month.
"Since when was making art about getting rich?" Kanye questioned. "I know it's easy for me to say this. Having money's not everything, not having it is."
"So you gonna help me put on a better show, corporations? Can you please support me? Please?" the rapper continued. "I swear I'm a nice leader now. I swear I'll put the pink polo back on."
"What is my public rating now? Are people liking me again? Enough to get some money for some corporations? They forgot about the whole Beyonce thing right? Ok cool."
