The Beef Behind ‘WAVES’ Album Title: Starring Kanye West, Wiz Khalifa And Amber Rose


All ‘hell’ broke loose yesterday afternoon [Jan.27th] , when Kanye West made a surprising announcement about the  ‘new name’  of  his forthcoming album dropping February 11th.

The original title album name was ‘Swish’ but Ye’ decided that he was going to take the name ‘WAVES’ instead; the popular name tag cultured by rapper, Max B whose currently facing a lengthy prison sentence.

As news hit the internet, some fans were a bit disappointed at Ye for the name switch, but Wiz Khalifa was totally offended by Ye’s actions; hence the start of the twitter beef that went viral.

‘Don’t take the Wave – tweeted Wiz Khalifa.  Hit This KK and Go Back To Being Yourself ‘

Kanye was angered by the tweet and felt Wiz was speaking about his wife Kim -K instead and fired off a series of  [now deleted posts] . West wrote:

You have distracted from my creative process. I went to look at your twitter and you were wearing cool pants. I screen grabbed those pants and sent it to my style team #Wizwearscoolpants. 3rd no one I know has ever listened to one of your albums all the way through. 4th you let a stripper trap you. 5th I know you mad every time you look at your child that this girl got you for 18 years. 6th don’t ever come out the side of your neck at me. 7th am your OG and I will be respected as such. 8th I made it so we could wear tight jeans. 9th me and Cudi created this s**t. 10th don’t you ever in your f**king life speak sideways about a n***a that’s fighting for us, I do this for all of us. 

11th I showed you respect as a man when I met you. 13th You own waves???. I own your child!!! 14th N***a its called creativity #Youshouldtryitsomeday. 15th N***a I tried to call you and you changed your number. 16th don’t even hint at mentioning me my family or my wife I am your OG. 17th I think you dress cool I wish I was skinny and tall. Maybe I couldn’t be skinny and tall but I’ll settle for being the greatest artist of all time as a consolation.

Don’t ever ever ever come out the side of your mutherf**king neck bro or bruh or however you say it Mr. Waves. I’m Ye and I ain’t gotta say it the right way. I’m Ye I’m Ye I’m Ye I’m Ye I’m Ye I’m Ye I’m Ye. 

Thank you for the extra promotion #WAVES available February 11th .

Wiz responded:

” KK is weed fool. Reason’s why your not wavy. Go bacc to Swish “

Then MuvaRose entered the twitter conversation and dropped a surprising tale of her previous relationship with Ye.

Kanye was pretty SILENT thereafter, and vowed to keep it positive instead. Looks like Amber’s comment ruffled old feathers. Hmm!  Nonetheless, Kanye has remained vigilant in keeping the ‘WAVES’ name  for his album title. So will just have to see how this plays out.

In the mean time, take a listen you Kanye’s first single release ‘No More Parties In L.A’ featuring Kendrick Lamar. Since it’s all about the music, Kanye single-handedly launched his own marketing campaign [free of charge] for his new album in true controversial ‘Ye’ fashion.

One Love PLUMS!
