For context, yesterday Wiz Khalifa accused Kanye of ripping off Harlem rapper Max B by naming his upcoming album Waves. (Max B is credited for popularizing the phrase “wavy.”) Kanye, of course, took offense to this. He was also irked by a tweet that may or may not have been about his wife, Kim Kardashian West.
Kanye responded with a barrage of angry tweets, aimed at Wiz, his ex-wife Amber Rose (who also happens to be Kanye’s ex-girlfriend), and Wiz’s child with Rose. Let’s just say, it’s not Kanye’s finest hour.
Read Kanye’s rant in full below. Update – Wednesday, January 27th at 2:50 p.m. CT: Kanye deleted the tweets “cause it’s all about positive energy blessings blessings positive energy blessings,” but not before we screen grabbed them.
Kanye eventually calmed down and got back to promoting “peace and positive energy” as well as his new album, Waves, out February 11th.
Update – Wednesday, January 27th at 2:50 p.m. CT: Amber Rose has responded via Twitter.
Meanwhile, Max B has dropped a freestyle rap from prison (he’s currently serving a 75-year sentence on conspiracy charges pertaining to armed robbery, kidnapping, aggravated assault and felony murder). Titled “Message to Kanye West”, it addresses Kanye’s decision to title his album Waves.
Update – Wednesday, January 27th at 3:00 p.m. CT: Kanye has admitted that he misinterpreted Wiz’s tweet about “KK.”
