Justin Timberlake Says He Settled His Issues With Kanye West

JT & Ye Had Hour-long Talk At VMAs Ending Beef Over “Suit & Tie” Comments

(AllHipHop News) The quarrel between Justin Timberlake and Kanye West appears to be over. During an interview with Sway Calloway’s Shade 45 radio show, Timberlake says he had an hour-long talk with Kanye at MTV’s Video Music Awards, and the two superstars settled their issues over Ye’s comments about JT’s song “Suit & Tie.”

Back in February, Kanye expressed that he was not a fan of the single during a performance in London telling the crowd, “I got love for Hov, but I ain’t f*cking with that ‘Suit & Tie’.” Justin shot back during his Saturday Night Live stint in March changing the hit record’s lyrics to: “My hit’s so sick got rappers acting dramatic.”

“It doesn’t matter,” said Timberlake. “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.”

Timberlake also reveals that he shared with Kanye that he is a fan of his music.

“I told him I f*ck with you in a way that you probably don’t even understand. I get what you do,” says Timberlake. “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 especially in his genre.”

Justin also says that while he has never worked with Kanye, he would have liked for him to appear on his project. Could a JT/Ye collaboration be on the way in the near future?
