Kanye’s Umpteenth Twitter Rant Is About an ‘Idiot’ Producer Who Shaded Ye’s Influence

Kanye West hopped on his most beloved outlet Tuesday—Twitter—to give a producer named Bob Ezrin a piece of his mind.

A quick Google search says that Ezrin is a Canadian music producer who has worked with acts like Kiss and Pink Floyd. Apparently Ezrin said that Macklemore was more "musically important" than Kanye, and that set Kanye off.


First Kanye made the point that most entrepreneurs incur debt and lawsuits as they venture out into business. It's a reference to his last infamous Twitter rant in which he revealed that he was $53 million in debt.

Then he went in on Ezrin.

He also threw a jab at Taylor Swift, who has won two Grammys for Album of the Year.

You would think that Kanye learned his lesson the first time he brought people's kids into his rants, but I guess not.

On Wednesday he tweeted about making the Grammys "culturally relevant" again; he said that Future should have performed at the Grammys and that revealing his debt set him free.


I just hope Kanye is at peace and keeps making genius music and speaking his mind about injustices of all kinds.
