“It all stands on what you produce; what you actually put down,” Crosby said.

He continued: “Kanye West can’t write, sing or play. So I have trouble with him as anything but a poser. Produce? That means he sits in a chair while the engineer does the work. He’s a poser! And I’m not backing off it.”

The rapper is preparing to headline the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury on Saturday night (June 27), with Florence And The Machine opening the festival last night (June 26) and The Who closing the event on Sunday (June 28).
