Justin Timberlake has resolved his feud with Kanye West and has also claimed he would like to work with the rapper in the future.

Kanye took a verbal potshot at Timberlake during a gig in February of this year, shortly after the singer's Jay Z collaboration 'Suit & Tie' was released. The hip-hop star, who also worked with Jay Z on their collaborative album 'Watch The Throne', told the crowd: "I got love for Hov, but I ain't fucking with that 'Suit & Tie'."

In an interview with Sway on In The Morning, Timberlake has now commented on West's remarks and said he had not been upset by his barbed remarks. "At the end of the day it's just music," he said. "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."

The singer then said the pair had settled their differences at the MTV VMAs last weekend. "I told [Kanye], 'I fuck with you, in a way that you probably don't even understand. I get what you do.' We've never worked together, so I don't think that he fully understands what it is that I can do. I love 'Yeezus', I love that album. I think he's ahead of a lot, especially in his genre. I think people are going to appreciate it a lot more in the future."

He also revealed that he would be interested in collaborating with Kanye in the future and had told him he wanted to work with him during the conversation. The rapper, he said, had responded by telling him: "Well, the best way I know how to do that is for us to just sit down and play music."

Timberlake reunited with his former band 'N Sync during the VMAs, but other members of the group have since insisted that they have no plans for a long-term reunion tour. The singer is set to release new album 'The 20/20 Experience – Part 2', the follow-up to his March LP 'The 20/20 Experience', on September 30.
