Kanye West Goes In On Wiz Khalifa: “You Stole Your Whole Sh*t From Cudi”

Kanye West’s decision to rename his new album WAVES didn’t go down so well in some circles (no pun intended) last night. Wiz Khalifa in particular was pretty vocal about it, suggesting that Kanye stole the, well, wave of Mr. Wavie Crockett himself, Max B.

Clearly tweets have been watching, because Kanye clapped back at Wiz (who is the ex of his ex, lest we forget) with an absolute assault of scathing tweets (plus a Kim K emoji, for good measure) this afternoon.

Wiz responded earlier on in Kanye’s Twitter rant, writing back, “KK is weed fool. Reason’s why your not wavy. Go bacc to Swish.” However, he’s yet to respond to the more recent — and more personal — tweets from Kanye that dragged Amber Rose and her son, Sebastian, into the conversation.

“The best present we worked and prayed so hard for is finally here,” she wrote on Instagram with a picture of a baby’s hat. “He’s got my fingers and big eyes and his daddy Erik’s mouth and chin. As we thank the angel of a woman that carried our miracle baby boy for us, we pray for everyone who struggles to reach this joyous milestone.”

The former FABLife host, spoke passionately about wanting to become a mother.

“We’re kind of going through this similar thing with IVF,” Banks said to Chrissy Teigen on the show when she discussed her own fertility struggle. “And, you know, putting needles in your tummy every day and having to come to work and smile when you feel like you want to throw up and lay down — I can’t believe I’m saying this right now!”

Baby York is the first child for the couple.
