He thinks West is a genius…
Justin Timberlake spoke with MTV's Sway Calloway on Sway's Shade 45 show, and Timberlake revealed that he has settled his beef with Kanye West when they had their face-to-face at the VMA's.
Earlier this year, there was a diss to Timberlake by West with the lyric, "Man I got love for Hov, but I ain't f---ing with that 'Suit & Tie.'" Timberlake responded to the diss on Saturday Night Live a short time later when he said, "My hit's so sick got rappers acting dramatic."
Timberlake stated, "It doesn't matter. It was one of them things where I love it, in a way, because at the end of the day it's just music. 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. It's just not that big a deal."
He added, "He [Kanye] said the exact perfect thing, which was, 'The best way I know how to do that is just for us to sit down and play music.' You can't plan out ... you can't, 'Hey, Ross I need you!' I love 'Ye ... I feel like I understand what he's doing. I love Yeezus. I love that album. I feel like I understand what he's doing. I think he's ahead ... of a lot ... all the time."
