Kanye West’s rants across Europe in the past week had some pretty memorable moments, but nothing compared to what happened on Tuesday night when he phoned into Hot 97 to comment on his #7 position on the “Hottest MCs” list. Not only did the “Don’t do no press, but I get the most press, kid” MC think that we overlooked his rhymes (‘Lucky I ain’t have Jay drop him from the team?’ “Ain’t no bar in the entire past 12 months that’s hotter than that bar!”) but he also believes that the public doesn’t like “Givenchy-Kanye” or “Kanye in a kilt.”
The G.O.O.D Music CEO also crowned Lil Wayne as the best rapper in the world. Needless to say, there were no shortage of reactions to Yeezy’s comments on Twitter

@SHAWNA_PEEZY I wanna rant like Kanye. It’s a skill.
@ImOnlyNormal: Kanye West said Lil Wayne is the best rapper alive. I wonder how Jay-Z feels about that?”
@mzloud1027 Get Kanye outta here!!
@kingmarack Hmm, why does Kanye love Wayne so much? This is a serious question. I am not trying to be funny.
@Kw4me Kanye knows what he’s doing. All those rants and wearing the Givenchy kilt and professing his love for Kim.
