Wiz Khalifa tweeted back an equally strange response, referencing the often-changing title of Mr. West’s latest album:
Mr. West then took it up a notch, accusing Wiz Khalifa of plagiarizing from another famous hip-hop artist:
Wiz fired back saying he had better things to do than wait for Mr. West’s new music:
But Mr. West was just getting started, firing off a strange tweetstorm of compliments and insults at Wiz:
Several more of Mr. West’s tweets were personal attacks about a stripper and child—they were in reference to Amber Rose, the mother of Wiz’s son Sebastian and an ex-girlfriend of both Wiz and Mr. West. Some of the insults were actually lines from Mr. West’s song “Gold Digger”:
Of course Mr. West threw in some self-promotion:
And he ended by vowing to delete the tweets as a goodwill gesture:
Even Khloe Kardashian chimed in:
While Ms. Rose posted an epic takedown of Mr. West:
Beyond his early tweets, Wiz has not responded to Mr. West—though he was momentarily pronounced dead on Wikipedia during the tweetstorm.
One thing’s for sure: if any diss tracks come out of this feud, they’ll be better than Dr. Tyson’s.
