Kanye West, Wiz Khalifa beef explodes on Twitter
UPDATE: Kanye West revisited his Twitter beef with Wiz Khalifa on Tuesday and publicly squashed the argument, which erupted after West thought Khalifa called out Kim Kardashian West on Twitter.
West tweeted, “Me and Wiz spoke yesterday. Great convo. All positive.”
His tweet comes hours after Kardashian West shared a photo with Amber Rose, West’s ex-girlfriend who was married to and had a child with Khalifa. West called out Rose in his tweets to Khalifa (seen below), but now it seems like all is well in Kardashian-West-Rose-Khalifa land.
EARLIER: Kanye West spent Wednesday afternoon blasting Wiz Khalifa on Twitter. “I am your OG, and I will be respected as such,” West wrote in one of his many tweets directed at the rapper, which also took aim at Khalifa’s ex, Amber Rose, and the couple’s child. “You own waves???? I own your child!!!!” West wrote. He later deleted almost all of the tweets, writing, “Ima take these down cause it’s all about positive energy blessings blessings positive energy blessings.”
West’s beef with Khalifa started on Tuesday, after West changed the title of his forthcoming “best album of all time” from Swish to Waves. While everyone else was like ¯_(ツ)_/¯, Khalifa was particularly upset. “Please don’t take the wave,” he tweeted, along with all the reasons Kanye isn’t “wavy” enough to claim that title and a few examples of what “wavy” means.

On Wednesday, Khalifa added, “Hit this kk and become yourself.” The “kk” in question, Khalifa later clarified, is “weed” and not West’s wife, Kim Kardashian West. That didn’t stop West from immediately firing back.
“Like, oh that’s Ye and I can put his wife’s initials on my twitter @Wizkhalifa,” West wrote. He then tweeted, “Bro first of all you stole your whole sh– from Cudi,” and “Second, your first single was corny as f— and most there after.” Then he wrote, “You have distracted from my creative process,” and fired off a few tweets about Khalifa’s pants.
“I went to look at your twitter and you were wearing cool pants,” he wrote, along with, “I screen grabbed those pants and sent it to my style team #Wizwearscoolpants.”
West then went in on Khalifa’s relationship with Rose, whom he previously dated as well. “You let a stripper trap you,” West wrote. “I know you mad every time you look at your child that this girl got you for 18 years.” Rose later responded to West via her Twitter account. “Awww @kanyewest are u mad I’m not around to play in ur a–hole anymore?” she wrote, accompanied by the hashtag #FingersInTheBootyAssBitch.
West also slammed Khalifa’s clothing choices, appearance, and family. “I think you dress cool I wish I was skinny and tall,” he tweeted. “Maybe I couldn’t be skinny and tall but I’ll settle for being the greatest artist of all time as a consolation.” He then thanked Khalifa for the “extra promotion” for his album.
“What’s sad is I love Wiz and I love all all my brothers and all people,” West wrote after the initial burst of tweets stopped. “I love the world bottom line and all I want is peace and positive energy.” He added that Waves is a “Gospel album.”
“Good energy positive energy,” he wrote.
