(WASHINGTON.CBSLOCAL) — Rapper Kanye West launched into a mid-concert rant against a range of people that included corporate executives, Justin Timberlake and one of his most famous public critics – President Barack Obama.

In a performance at London’s Hammersmith Apollo on Saturday, the Chicago-born rapper at one point said: “I don’t give a f–k what the president’s got to say,” to an ecstatic London audience.

The president – also with roots in the city of Chicago — has publicly called West a “jackass.” One example was an off-hand remark picked up by cameras in which Obama commented on West’s interruption of singer Taylor Swift during her acceptance speech at the 2009 Video Music Awards.
