Kanye West is starting to become better known for his epic social media rants than his music!
The “All Day” rapper took to Twitter again this week to express his frustration over negative comments made about his Yeezy Season 3 fashion show.
West’s comments were seemingly spurred by a post on MediaTakeOut.com that called the musical artist-turned-fashion designer’s New York Fashion Week event a “sh*t show” and claimed 50 Cent and Jay-Z “look embarrassed to be there.”
The gossip site used a photo of West with Caitlyn Jenner, which the 38-year-old rapper expressed pride in.
The clap-back started in the early hours of Saturday, after West said a delay in the release of his upcoming album, “The Life of Pablo,” was due to Chance the Rapper, which then quickly divulged into a stream of tweets defending his NYFW show.
“Now — Media Takeout — always remember that you dissed the collection that changed the world,” West wrote. “You seem like the type of organization hired to always keep dreamers down… when certain things in history happen you just got to respect it…”
West went on to issue a few disses of his own, spouting that Media Takeout knows “damn well” it would love to have been on the list for Yeezy 350s, the highly sought after shoes West released with Adidas.
“You probably got bootleg Yeezy’s on right now…” he tweeted.
Then West took a positive turn, praising Rihanna’s first fashion show for Puma, which also ran during New York Fashion Week.
“Wow the paradigm has shifted, She killed it… everything is changed now!!!!” he wrote.
His mood escalated to the kind of excitement that can only be adequately conveyed bycaps lock.
“I’M SO HYPE RIGHT NOW EVERYTHING HAS CHANGED… HAVE YA’LL EVER SEEN TRON? THE END OF THE TRON WHERE EVERYTHING LIGHT UP!!!!” West tweeted. “HAD TO ALL CAPS THIS!!!!!! NO MORE RULES…. MAKE YOUR OWN RULES… ok now back to finishing Pablo .”
All West’s fans really needed was that last sentence, as he had originally promised to drop “The Life of Pablo” on Friday — which also explains the tweet that started this entire rant.
But, to round out his morning, West also posted this picture of himself with Vogue editor and fashion icon Anna Wintour, captioned simply with the word “Bosses.”
