Kanye West and Wiz Khalifa set the Twitterverse ablaze Wednesday as they beefed over West’s abrupt decision Tuesday night to change his new album’s title from “Swish” to “Waves. Wiz believed that the “Waves” concept belongs to rapper Max B and asked, “Please don’t take the wave.”

Things soon escalated over what West perceived as a dig at his wife Kim Kardashian. West went off on the “See You Again” rapper, his relationship with West’s ex, Amber Rose, and their child. Rose also jumped in, but West hasn’t engaged.

However, Wiz claimed the comment was simply a reference to smoking weed. Eventually, Wiz backed away, claiming “I got joints to roll.” And West deleted all the tweets saying, “Ima take these down cause it’s all about positive energy.”

What was this really about? Well, West did tweet, “Thank you for the extra promotion. #WAVES available February 11th.”
