Last night, Wiz Khalifa offered his opinions on Kanye West's forthcoming album, now titled Waves.

Let's just say Wiz is not impressed with the name of the album.

Let's just say Wiz is not impressed with the name of the album.

Khalifa sent a series of tweets last night, which were presumably about West (even though he didn't directly mention his fellow rapper).

He's the reason I sing on all my songs. That's the wave. If theres nothing wit that sound ITS NOT WAVY.

He followed up by tweeting about what kind of music is actually ~wavy~ in his opinion.

Just so you know what true waves are. https://t.co/Mot3ab1Kuu

Not one to keep quiet, Kanye took to Twitter on Wednesday afternoon and began a tweetstorm to end all tweetstorms.

It began like this...

...and then West honed in on his target.

And from that moment, he berated everything from Khalifa's style of dress...

...to the kind of music he makes.

The tweetstorm didn't stop. Some were difficult to decipher, like this one:

Some were more straightforward:

But Kanye was not done. He was far from done. Next, he went for Wiz's pants.

And his music...again.

Then there was this subtle dig at Amber Rose, the ex-girlfriend of both rappers.

Khalifa and Rose have a son together.

Khalifa and Rose have a son together.

The rant continued — and got dark at some points.

Kanye warned Wiz not to come for him. Ever.

Twitter / Via Twitter: @kanyewest

Because he's Wiz's elder and demands to be treated as such.

Twitter / Via Twitter: @kanyewest

According to Kanye, he heavily influenced Khalifa, at least in terms of style.

He credited Kid Cudi, as well.

The rant continued for nearly half an hour.

Twitter / Via Twitter: @kanyewest

It just would not end.

Twitter / Via Twitter: @kanyewest

At all.

Twitter / Via Twitter: @kanyewest

West did not mince his words.

Twitter / Via Twitter: @kanyewest

And called out Wiz for being uncreative.

Twitter / Via Twitter: @kanyewest

And, at some point, apparently tried to call Wiz?!

Twitter / Via Twitter: @kanyewest

The remainder of the rant was just a rehash of everything that had been said before.

Twitter / Via Twitter: @kanyewest

With more tweets about Wiz's style, which Kanye might actually admire? Minus the pants?

Twitter / Via Twitter: @kanyewest

But regardless, he wanted Wiz and everyone to know that tall and skinny or not, he's the greatest artist of all time.

Twitter / Via Twitter: @kanyewest

And he ended up driving home the point that Wiz should never cross him.

Twitter / Via Twitter: @kanyewest

Maybe this was all for extra promotion?

Twitter / Via Twitter: @kanyewest

AND THEN Kanye tweeted that actually, wait, he loves Wiz!

Peace and positive energy!

Waves is a gospel album!

WHAT IS HAPPENING????

Wiz did respond, but not much.

He had joints to roll.

And that's how things go from 0 to 100, kids.

Kanye kept tweeting, y'all.

Twitter / Via Twitter: @kanyewest

How did Lucifer get into this?

Twitter / Via Twitter: @kanyewest

Er, OK, Kanye.

Twitter / Via Twitter: @kanyewest

I don't know how to "either" anyone but it sounds painful.

Twitter / Via Twitter: @kanyewest

Glad you had time to reflect and get some clarity on things, Kanye.

Twitter / Via Twitter: @kanyewest

And then, as if this couldn't get any more surreal, there was Amber Rose's very *ahem* pointed response.

When asked by BuzzFeed News at Los Angeles International Airport to comment on the whole affair, Kanye was rather tight lipped.
