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?
