Kanye West Just Hammered The Nail Into His Own Coffin With This Weird Twitter Rant

Kanye got absolutely burned by this music producer, and responded with a bunch of nonsense as per usual.

Kanye West seems to be hang a Twitter meltdown every other day at the moment after his new album just dropped, and it seems like yesterday was no exception.

In this one, he takes aim at rock music producer Bob Ezrin, who perhaps wrote the best ever summary of Kanye West in history in a recent newsletter:

Unlike other creators in his genre like Jay-Z, Tupac, Biggie or even M.C. Hammer for that matter, it’s unlikely that we’ll be quoting too many of Kanye’s songs 20 years from now.

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.

What he is a true artist at is living his life out loud — and shoving it down the throats of the rest of us whether we give a shit or not.

He’s like that flasher who interrupts a critical game by running naked across the field. Is that art???

See? Absolute burn, sure, but also a fairly accurate portrayal of just what Kanye West is all about. Of course, Kanye wasn’t going to take this lying down and chose to respond with a trademark Twitter rant – also taking shots at Taylor Swift, obviously:

Well there you have it, a perfect well rationed response to Ezrin’s argument that I’m sure will convince a lot of the naysayers. Or, depending on how you look at it, doing exactly what Ezrin was accusing him of doing. However you choose to interpret it though, I’m sure we can all agree that it can be summed up as ‘typical Kanye’.

FYI, Bob Ezrin has worked with a veritable who’s who of the rock world over a career that has spanned four decades, including Lou Reed, Alice Cooper, Kiss, Pink Floyd, Peter Gabriel, Deftones and Thirty Seconds To Mars. With that in mind, I think it’s safe to say he’s probably contributed to more relevant music/pop culture than Kanye West ever has, despite the fact he’s not as much of a household name.

That’s probably the way he wants it to be honest, instead of being the guy who is arrogant enough to describe himself as ‘the next Nelson Mandela‘.
