Kanye West Went Ham On Another Music Producer

This time he was actually provoked.

Published March 3, 2016

It seemed like Kanye West calmed down on Twitter a little bit but that quickly changed after he fielded a blindside attack for his use of a certain software program.

Deadmau5 took a shot at ‘Ye after the Chicago rapper posted a picture of a Sufjan Stevens song on his computer he was feeling. In another tab that was open, West apparently was using a bootlegged version of the production software program Serum from the torrent website Pirate Bay.

“What the f**k @kanyewest ... Can't afford serum? D**k,” the Canadian producer tweeted. “Let's start a Kickstarter to help @kanyewest afford a copy of Serum,” he relaying in a follow-up tweet. What’s ironic is that Yeezy is supposedly planning legal action against the Pirate Bay for bootlegging his album, The Life of Pablo. What’s also going on here is that Deadmau5 is the co-founder of Xfer Records, which backs Serum.

Kanye then fired back at Deadmau5 after seeing his diss. “I’m bored ### when you get married will your wife have a giant minnie mouse head? # This brightened up my day…thank you dead-mow-five,” he tweeted and then followed up with, “I need you to perform at her party with specifically a minnie mouse dead-mow-five head… not a mickey mouse dead-mow-five head.”

‘Ye’s got jokes. Also, this didn’t sit well with Deadmau5, who replied to Kanye’s reply with, “Imma let you finish.... But you should probably be saving the money for a 4th grade education,” and “I can out idiot an idiot. It's what I do.” West didn’t reply this latest development. Is this back-and-forth over?
