During his track 'Clique', he criticised Timberlake's new song 'Suit & Tie', a collaboration with West's Watch the Throne partner Jay-Z.

He told the crowd: "I got love for Hov, but I ain't f***ing with that 'Suit & Tie'."

West also ranted about the concept of art versus wealth, saying: "Since when was making art about getting rich? And I know it's easy for me to say this. Having money's not everything, not having it is."

He then spoke about his hatred for corporate sponsorships, declaring: "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."

He also made another diss against the Grammy Awards, saying: "Remind me again why the Grammys can suck my d**k?"
