An enraged Kanye West launched a scathing attack on t a brand new target – this time music producer and keyboardist Bob Ezrin.
The rapper was responding to Ezrin’s scathing critique where he said Kanye isn’t on the creative level of some other artists such as Jay Z, Tupac, Biggie or M.C. Hammer.
“Instead Kanye’s greatest achievements have been in the form of excessive behaviour, egomaniacal tantrums and tasteless grandstanding,” he continued.
Taking to Twitter on Tuesday night, Kanye unleashed a furious rant where he took aim at his children and told him to “never speak in public again”.
“Has anybody ever heard of Bob Ezrin?” he began.
“I’m tired of old people that have no connection with anything trying to comment on music! Do something relevant… Please don’t speak on me bro ever again! Your kids are ashamed of their dad…
“Sorry for speaking about kids… but could you imagine if you were Bob Ezrin’s kids… I’m so sorry for them… I will send them free Yeezys to make up for the embarrassment that you have caused your family!”
The producer, who has worked with the likes of Lou Reed, Alice Cooper, Kiss and Pink Floyd, also said he didn’t “memorably address social issues through his music like Marshall, Macklemore and Kendrick.”
Continuing, Kanye said: “Bro you said Macklemore was more important musically than me.. no offense to Macklemore, he’s a nice human being! Bob please never speak in public again.. you are everything that is wrong with the old guard. It’s guys like you that run companies and don’t invest in Ye even if I’m your kid’s idol!!
“Rock and Roll was stolen… Rap was exploited. I made Dark Fantasy and Watch the Throne in one year and wasn’t nominated for either and you know who has two albums of the year. Ezrin I truly feel sorry for your friends and family that they have had to suffer an idiot like you for so many years… God bless the fools … all positive vibes!”
