Not since his Blitzkrieg against Wiz Khalifahas West trained his usually scattered rage against a fellow musician with such laser focus. This time, the target was Deadmau5, who was justifiably annoyed that Yeezy had apparently been torrenting his company Xfer Records’ Serum software.
Here’s the thing about mice: When they take the bait, the trap snaps shut.
Is it even remotely possible that West doesn’t know how Deadmau5’s moniker is pronounced? Given that they’re both faces (so to speak) for the oft-ridiculed streaming music service Tidal, probably not.
Nevertheless, the riff went on.
Meanwhile, poor Deadmau5, who tried to nail Kanye to the wall earlier in the day by alluding to the rapper’s possible financial troubles, had signed off Twitter by the time the true ownage began.
Sweet dreams, dude.
