Kanye West has been open and honest with his fans on his Twitter page. He has recently displayed several rants on Twitter expressing his feelings on music, money and personal issues.

Bob Ezrin is a producer who is known for working with Pink Floyd, Lou Reed, and Alice Copper. Ezrin commented on Kanye’s career in an essay posted to The Lefsetz Letter, saying that Ye’s music would not stand the test of time, “Unlike other creators in his genre like Jay Z, Tupac, Biggie or even MC Hammer.” He continued, “He did not open up new avenues of discourse like NWA, or introduce the world to a new art form like Grandmaster Flash, or even meaningfully and memorably address social issues through his music like Marshall, Macklemore and Kendrick.” Ezrin went on to say that he’s afraid that people consider Kanye an artist.

Ye did not like what Bob had to say about him, so he wanted to let Twitter know how he felt about the shots thrown at him. Ye stated, “Has anybody ever heard of Bob Ezrin??? What the f— does he know about rapIm tired of old people that have no connection with anything trying to comment on music!” He continued with several other tweets about Bob, his family, and music.

After his Twitter rant, Kanye went to 1Oak Nightclub and started another rant.

Ye had to clear everything up about Amber Rose stating he likes fingers in his booty. Kanye yelled, “She ain’t never stick her fingers in my ass. I don’t play like that.”

Kanye West’s new song “Famous” has been making headlines lately where he wrote Taylor Swift is famous because of him, and they might have sex! People bashed him for those lyrics and Ye said he asked Taylor for permission, and she approved it. Taylor denied that she knew about the lyrics, and that Kanye never discussed it with her. Ye went on to say at the nightclub, “I called Taylor,” Kanye said from the stage. “I said, ‘Look, Taylor, I talked to my wife about it,’ and I said, ‘How do you feel about this line, Taylor?’ I was like, ‘Taylor, me and you might still have sex,’ and she was like, ‘Ooh, Kanye, I like that line.” he continued to shout, “Then she won and said something completely different,” he said. “She ain’t cool no more. She had two seconds to be cool and she f–ked it up.”

Yeezy woke everyone up the next day with another Twitter rant, this time aiming at The Grammys. “I feel the Grammy awarding system is way off and completely out of touch,” he tweeted, adding, “Hi Grammys this is the most important living artist talking.”

The next topic on his soapbox was concerning race. Ye believes Future owned the clubs last summer and his March Madness album was one of the best. He believes not only should Future, but also Young Thug should’ve performed at The Grammys. Ye went on to say that the award show looks for a certain black person. “You like your black people a certain way, we need to see Future and Young Thug at the Grammys, not just me and Jay in a suit,” Tweeted Kanye.


Kanye West album The Life Of Pablo is available exclusively through Tidal, he also revealed that he will be coming out with another album this summer. His rants have been making headlines lately, and his fans are loving it!
