Kanye West just keeps confirming that he's eight kinds of crazy and a bag of nuts. This time he went on an epically insane Twitter rant against music producer Bob Ezrin. Reid Mene over at IJ Review has the story:
Ezrin has produced some of the biggest artists in the world, including Lou Reed, Alice Cooper, Kiss, Pink Floyd and many more.
Recently Ezrin was quoted in a newsletter published by Bob Lefsetz’s the Lefsetz Letter saying the self-proclaimed ‘greatest rapper alive,’ was “sophomoric at best.”Read the rest of the article. Kanye's tweets are absolutely hysterical. The dude goes into a full on Trump-style meltdown. It's hilarious.
“He didn’t open up new avenues of public 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.”After West got his hands on the letter, he broke into an all out tantrum via Twitter.
I happen to agree with Ezrin for what it's worth. Kanye West has a seriously inflated sense of his own importance in the music industry. Even among rappers his only distinction is the amount of work he's produced.
That and his mystifying ability to tap Kim Kardashian's ass whenever he wants.
