Kanye West has taken aim at producer Bob Ezrin in yet another epic Twitter rant.

The rapper has become known for his tirades on the social networking site over the past few months, with Wiz Khalifa and his financial troubles just two of the subjects he’s chosen to comment on.

His latest came on Wednesday morning when West decided to respond to renowned music producer Ezrin comments that his music is “sophomoric at best.”

“Unlike other creators in his genre like Jay Z, Tupac (Shakur), Biggie (Smalls) or even M.C. Hammer for that matter, it’s unlikely that we’ll be quoting too many of Kanye’s songs 20 years from now,” Ezrin wrote in the Lefsetz newsletter.

Ezrin continued:

“He didn’t open up new avenues of public discourse like NWA, or introduce the world to a new art form like Grandmaster Flash, or even meaningfully and memorably address social issues through his music like Marshall (Mathers, Eminem), Macklemore and Kendrick (Lamar). Instead Kanye’s greatest achievements have been in the form of excessive behavior, ego-maniacal tantrums and tasteless grandstanding. What he is a true artist at is living his life out loud – and shoving it down the throats of the rest of us whether we give a shit or not. He’s like that flasher who interrupts a critical game by running naked across the field. Is that art???”

West was quick to view his own opinions about Ezrin taking aim at everything from his age to his children in his rant. Despite the fact that Ezrin has worked with critically-acclaimed musical artists such as Lou Reed, Pink Floyd, Kiss and Alice Cooper.

West kicked off his rant by asking:

One aspect that West seemed to take the most offense to was Ezrin’s comment that “Thrift Shop” musician Macklemore is more relevant than him.

He then tweeted that he felt sorry for Ezrin and his friends and family and called him an idiot.
