Kanye West is back at it — ranting and raving.

Over the weekend, the 39-year-old rapper took aim at Apple Music via Twitter, telling the whole world exactly what they need to do to get on his good side — because well, he’s Yeezus, the Black Jesus.

In a series of heated tweets, the “Famous” recording artist commented on the ongoing feud between Apple Music and Jay Z’s streaming service, Tidal, attempting to solve the beef over social media. Only, given West’s choice of words, we’re not sure how much progress he made.

“This Tidal Apple beef is f—ing up the music game,” he tweeted on Saturday, July 30, referencing June rumors that Apple Music was looking to acquire Tidal. While there’s been no official word of negotiations on either end, according to West, Apple just needs to fork it over.


“I need Tim Cook, Jay Z, Dez, Jimmy, Larry, me and Drake Scooter on the phone or in a room this week!!!” he followed up moments later.


Of course, the father of two wouldn’t be himself if he didn’t drop a little wisdom.



Of course, only time will tell whether West gets his meeting and can resolve the epic Apple/Tidal debacle #IRL(in real life).

For the time being, the fashion killer has yet another beef to keep him busy — the one between his wife and Taylor Swift. In fact, the rapper recently took a moment to comment on the internet brawl saying, “I’m so glad my wife has Snapchat. ‘Cause now y’all can know the truth,” he yelled out to the crowd while onstage at Drake’s concert earlier this week. “And can’t nobody talk s— about Ye no more!”
