David Crosby slammed Kanye West on Friday, hours before the rapper was set to take the stage at the Glastonbury Festival in England. Check out the video below.

Back in March, Crosby was asked on Twitter for his “opinion on Kanye’s music [and] impact as an artist.” The music legend replied, “Music?.. He’s an idiot and a poser….has no talent at all.” Crosby was now asked about that comment during an in interview on “HuffPost Live,” and explained his negative take on the controversial West.

“Kanye West can’t write, sing or play, so I have trouble with him as anything but a poser,” explained Crosby. When it was pointed out that West produces, the musician shot back, “That means he sits in a chair while the engineer does the work.”

Crosby added, “He’s a poser. I’m not backing off it.” And many at Glastonbury may actually agree. Earlier this year, there was a petition created after West was announced as one of the headliners. More than 100,000 fans of the event called for West to be removed on grounds that he’s an “insult” to music.

West and pregnant wife Kim Kardashian arrived at the festival grounds via helicopter on Saturday afternoon. How his set will go remains to be seen. Watch video of Crosby’s diss below, and tell us what you think.
