Kanye West is back at it. Just days after going on a rant where he accused Puma of trying to break up his family (by signing Kylie Jenner) and then again, by slamming the educational system. The controversial rapper has paid tribute to actor Will Ferrell in yet another odd but entertaining tirade via social media.

On Saturday, Feb. 27, the 38-year-old took to Twitter to pay tribute to the comedy actor after watching Zoolander 2 for the second time. “Will Ferrell has reached walking living breathing god status,” Kanye tweeted. “His existence is a blessing. Perhaps it was seeing him play the same character from 15 years ago with 15 more years experience. That showed how sharp and Bruce Lee status he is. We all know Will Ferrell has always been the one!!!” In case you missed it, Ferrell, 48, reprises his role as the megalomaniacal supervillain Jacobim Mugatu in the sequel, which was released February 12.

“I just want to thank Will Ferrell for the years of joy he has brought into my life with amazing comedy,” he continued. “And also let’s shout out to the art direction…candy on the screens! It is so inspiring. Thank you for existing!”

As you may recall, Yeezy and Ferrell go way back. In fact, the hip-hip recording artist starred alongside Ferrell in the popular comedy sequel Anchorman 2. And Kanye and Jay Z’s 2011 track “N—-as in Paris” samples excerpts from Ferrell’s 2007 figure-skating film Blades of Glory.

Fortunately for West, the love and appreciation go both ways. “We need to start hanging out,” Ferrell said in a 2011 interview with ODE, regarding pals about Kanye and Jay Z. “I was extremely flattered. We need to start drinking Cristal together.”

If you ask us, it seems that these fellas need to schedule a play date sometime in the near future. Can’t say we wouldn’t love to catch it all on film. What are your thoughts about West and Ferrell’s budding bromance? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.
