Kanye West criticised Justin Timberlake's comeback single 'Suit & Tie' during an onstage rant on Saturday night (February 23).

While performing his track 'Clique' at London's Hammersmith Apollo, West launched into a lengthy tirade that covered everything from corporate sponsorship to the Grammy Awards. He also revealed he is not a fan of 'Suit & Tie', Timberlake's recent collaboration with Jay-Z, saying: "I got love for Hov, but I ain't fucking with that 'Suit & Tie'."

Railing against his corporate sponsors, West said: "They trying to put their logos on every concert and shit. For the meet and greet, you gotta meet the execs and their daughters. And they'll show you what they just bought her... "

Continuing, West fumed: "So, you gonna help me put on a better show, corporations? Can you please support me? Please? Me, Kanye West. I swear I'm a nice leader now. I swear I'll put the pink polo back on. I swear to you. Please. Just for $3 million. I need it so bad. I need a pool in my backyard! So I'll tell all my fans your shit is cool. And if they believe in me, then they’ll also believe in you."

West also took a swipe at the Grammy Awards, saying: "Remind me again why the Grammys can suck my dick?" Scroll down and click 'play' to watch the rapper's full onstage tirade.

West played a second gig at London's Hammersmith Apollo last night (February 24), but chose not to vent again. He told fans: "I got shit off my chest last night but I'm feeling good tonight."
