Kanye West, Sleeping Giant, Successfully Rips Wiz Khalifa, Eskimo Brother, New Asshole

There’s a lot of crazy shit happening in the Kanye West camp, right now—more than usual, even. After announcing the tracklist for an album then called SWISH and labeling it the “best album of all time,” Yeezy revealed a sudden title change, opting instead for WAVES, which apparently struck a chord in West’s Eskimo Brother Wiz Khalifa. “Please don’t take the wave,” the former Amber Rose hubby tweeted, accusing West of ripping off Harlem rapper Max B.

In true form, such petty finger-pointing didn’t sit well West, especially coming from the man who put a bun in his ex-girlfriend’s oven and jumped ship soon after. Publicly unleashing his irrational arrogance we all love to hate, West went on a bloodthirsty Twitter rampage, quite literally silencing the Pittsburgh rapper and potentially making it so he’ll never be able to make music again, or even leave his house for that matter.

Though we wholeheartedly reject West’s stripper shaming re: Amber Rose, he does pinpoint a number of unapologetic truths about Khalifa that we can’t help but slowly nod and shamelessly grin at. Yes, his first single was “corny as fuck.” Yes, no one has ever listened to one of his albums all the way through. And yes, we all wish we were as skinny and tall as Khalifa, but “being the greatest artist of all time” is certainly better.

For your viewing pleasure, we’ve chronicled the entire Twitter fight, below, which will probably go down in history as the greatest Twitter fight of all time: Kanye West: 1, Wiz Khalifa: 0—but that’s no surprise at all, now is it?

UPDATE: West has rounded out the unorthodox asshole ripping with some unexpected positivity. “All I want is peace,” he tweeted, adding that WAVES is “actually a Gospel album.” (We sure hope not).
