Kanye West must be finished with his upcoming album, because he’s had a lot of time lately to comment on Twitter. On Wednesday, Kanye took to social media to let Wiz Khalifa know that he is the greatest and not to mess with him and whatever name he chooses for his upcoming album. Then West went on to continue Twitter trashing Khalifa, his baby mama, Amber Rose, and their son. Right now, there’s really nothing left for Wiz Khalifa to do except try to smoke away the pain after an epic Twitter drag, according to 96.1 Kiss.
Wiz started the war by tweeting, “Please don’t take the wave.” Then Wiz took shots at Kim Kardashian and her obvious involvement in Kanye’s newest project by tweeting, “KK is weed fool. Reason’s why your not wavy. Go bacc to Swish. ” This was in response to Kanye West’s announcement on Tuesday night that he was changing the name of his upcoming album to Waves after spending nearly 9 months of calling it Swish. That change came after initially calling the collection of Kanye’s latest work So Help Me God, and many are wondering why the latest name change for Kanye West’s album came just over two weeks from the release date.

Apparently, Wiz Khalifa wanted to call Kanye West out for changing it up again, and he thinks his predecessor is acting like a copycat with the new name. “Max B is the wavy one. He created the wave. There is no wave without him,” tweeted Wiz. “Im a wavy baby for sure and I’m not having it.” Wiz continued on his Twitter rant about the name of Kanye’s upcoming album, claiming to be a true fan of Max B. This is why Khalifa felt the need to publicly slam Kanye West on social media.
The problem is, Kanye wasn’t going to let Wiz Khalifa say anything negative about his album without taking a few shots himself. West proved that no subject is off limits, and the gloves were off. Kanye’s response to Khalifa’s Twitter attack is pretty epic.

After Wiz Khalifa had his say, it didn’t take long for Kanye West to see what was going on with Twitter. Kanye has since started deleting some of the harsh words he had for Wiz, and has even tried to say the whole thing was a misunderstanding. It’s hard to imagine the two rappers will ever get along again after telling each other how they really feel, no matter how Wiz and Kanye try to clean up their Twitter mess. Kanye first responded first by paying respect to Max B. and claimed that the album title is his way of paying respect to an artist that came before him. Then Kanye turned his attention to Wiz.
“Bro first of all you stole your whole s**t from Cudi,” Kanye began. “Second, your first single was corny as f**k and most there after.” Kanye continued, “3rd no one I know has ever listened to one of your albums all the way through.” That might actually be true. Please speak now if you’ve ever listened to a whole Wiz Khalifa album.
“4th you let a stripper trap you,” Kanye tweeted about Khalifa’s former marriage to Amber Rose and the child they have together. “5th I know you mad every time you look at your child that this girl got you for 18 years.” Hmm, that might also be true.
Kanye tweeted, “don’t ever come out the side of your neck at me” in response to Khalifa’s criticism over the choice of his album name. “I am your OG and I will be respected as such.” Then Kanye West decided to let Wiz know all the trends he started that the rival rapper has certainly been taking advantage of. “I made it so we could wear tight jeans,” West rapid-fire tweeted before quickly adding, “me and Cudi created this s**t.”
Kanye West still wasn’t done, and the best was still yet to come. Kanye tweeted, “don’t you ever in your f**king life speak sideways about a n***a that’s fighting for us I do this for all of us.” This is when Kanye decided to get real personal. “I showed you respect as a man when I met you,” West tweeted. “You wouldn’t have a child if it wasn’t for me.” Kanye West is alluding to the fact that Wiz got together with Amber Rose after Kanye dumped her and started dating his current wife, Kim Kardashian. Now Kanye is saying that if he hadn’t moved on to Kim, Wiz and Amber probably never would have been together and their son, Sebastian, wouldn’t exist.

“You own waves???? I own your child!!!!” Kanye tweeted. Then West goes on to talk about how he actually liked Wiz Khalifa until he tried to talk down to his “OG” and not pay respect. Kanye talked about how he liked Wiz Khalifa’s style because he is “skinny and tall.” That’s about the only compliment Khalifa was going to get out of Kanye during this epic Twitter beef, though, because Kanye signed off with a band. West tweeted, “maybe I couldn’t be skinny and tall but I’ll settle for being the greatest artist of all time as a consolation.”
Now, Kanye West is deleting much of the feud, especially the real rude parts talking about Amber Rose and Khalifa’s son with her, but of course plenty of screenshots are already saved. Kanye has even sort of apologized for confusing “KK” with his wife’s name, Kim Kardashian (because it seemed to make sense to pretty much everyone.) Instead, Wiz insists the initials are slang for weed, something both he and Kanye can appreciate.

Amber even responded to the Kanye West diss with her own venom. Amber tweeted, “Awww
@kanyewest are u mad I’m not around to play in ur a**hole anymore?” Then Amber called out Kanye for deleting a few tweets, supposedly after talking to Wiz and working things out. Amber wrote, “Lol @kanyewest Now u wanna delete ur tweets cuz Muva has arrived?” We’re pretty sure Kanye’s tweet and delete had nothing to do with Amber Rose arriving on the scene, but let’s let her think as much.
Whether or not Kanye West’s upcoming album Waves really is the greatest of all time is still up for debate. So far, we haven’t even heard any of the tracks on the list posted by Kanye. DJ Akademiks did discuss the Max B. controversy and whether or not Kanye had a chance of putting out a hit record after the very dissatisfying Yeezus flop. Check out what DJ Akademiks had to say about Kanye West and his tribute to Max B. but be warned, the language in this video is NSFW.
