North West’s birthday party this year is gonna be lit.
Twitter enthusiast and part-time fashion designer Kanye took to the social media platform yesterday to post a screenshot of a Sufjan Stevens song he was listening to. Canadian producer Deadmau5 noticed that Yeezus’ screenshot showed an open Pirate Bay tab in his web browser—Pirate Bay, like, the illegal downloading software most people have used at one point or another in their lives. Deadmau5, who has a history of Twitter trolling, was apparently offended by Kanye’s use of the software and proceeded to call him out for it.
“What the f-ck @kanyewest … Can’t afford serum? D-ck,” Deadmau5 tweeted. “Let’s start a Kickstarter to help @kanyewest afford a copy of Serum. He needs a small loan of 200$ #prayforyeezy.”
As he is apt to do, Kanye responded to Deadmau5 on Twitter this afternoon and it’s entertaining as hell. “Ok very serious question,” ’Ye started out. This was his way of letting us know that what was about to follow was not at all a serious question. “Whose job is it to carry the head on the plane # hash tag # do you check the mickey mouse head or carry on # does it get hot?” he wrote. Dying to know the response.
Kanye later asked Deadmau5 if he would be available to perform at daughter North’s birthday party in Minnie Mouse ears—and stream it on Tidal. (Both Kanye and Deadmau5 are Tidal investors.) Deadmau5 has yet to respond to this request, but he’s currently delirious, so it might be a while before he says anything.
Classic. Check out Kanye’s ridiculous tweets for Deadmau5 via the screenshots below.
