The Kanye West and Wiz Khalifa feud has definitely sent shockwaves through the hip-hop celebrity circles, as the two are among the top in the industry. Dubbed the Twitter feud of the century by USA Today, it began when Kanye West, Kim Kardashian’s husband decided to change the title of his upcoming album from “SWISH” to “Waves”, a move that didn’t sit well with Wiz Khalifa who voiced his displeasure on Twitter. He posted the following tweet in response to the new title.
Max B is the wavy one. He created the wave. There is no wave without him.
5:37 AM – 27 Jan 2016
His post credited the Wave to Max B, whose unique style of creating melodies led to the wave movement, which in turn contributed to the sounds present in hip-hop today. Currently serving a 75-year jail term following a sentencing in 2009 for armed robbery and felony murder, Max B is still revered in the hip-hop domain. This is as reported by Mic.
Moreover, Wiz Khalifa posted a tweet in regards to this directed at Kanye saying, “He’s the reason I sing on all my songs. That’s the wave. If theres nothing wit that sound ITS NOT WAVY”.
Back to the Kanye West and Wiz Khalifa feud, the following is the timeline of their Twitter exchange.

Hit this kk and become yourself.
4:12 PM – 27 Jan 2016
On the last post, however, Kanye misunderstood KK to mean Kim Kardashian and soon responded by posting a tirade of tweets. The following are some of them.
“Bro first of all you stole your whole s— from (Kid) Cudi,”
“Second, your first single was corny as f— and most there after.”
“3rd no one I know has ever listened to one of your albums all the way through.”
“4th you let a stripper trap you,”
His forth rant was in reference to Amber Rose, who has a son with Wiz Khalifa called Sebastian.
Soon after, Amber joined in against Kanye saying “Awww @kanyewest are u mad I’m not around to play in ur a—— anymore? #FingersInTheBootyA–B—-,”
On learning that KK as posted by Wiz meant Khalifa Kush – Khalifa’s marijuana strain, Kanye soon deleted the deeply negative tweets and posted the following message, “What’s sad is I love Wiz and I love all all my brothers and all people. I love the world bottom line and all I want is peace and positive energy.”
That said, Kim Kardashian was not impressed with Amber Rose’s involvement in the feud and apparently thinks that she is thirsty for attention. This is as reported by Hollywood Life. According to an insider who spoke to the site, “Her comment was disgusting, Kim is furious, but she knows any reaction is giving Amber what she wants”.
Apparently, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star begged Kanye not to respond to Amber’s “disgusting” post, as this would be giving her the attention she desires. This presently seems to be the way to go for the couple, as Kanye has refrained from adding any more fuel to the fire. And when asked about the feud at LAX just shortly after posting the “positive energy” tweet, he offered the following answer.
“I said what I had to say.”
