Kanye West ripped into the Grammys and Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z’s new single “Suit and Tie” at a concert at the Hammersmith Apollo in London tonight during a improvised extended outro to his song “Clique.” This video shot by a fan at the gig includes the full performance “Clique,” so if you just want to hear the rant, skip ahead to about the four minute mark.
He starts off by talking about the pressure to be a star and make money, and makes it clear that his only concern is making art. He gets his digs in at the Grammys and JT around the six minute mark, singing:
Remind me again why we’re in this shit?
Remind me again why the Grammys could suck my dick?
Remind me again who’s the original Superfly?
And I got love for Hov,
but I’m not fucking with that “Suit and Tie”
