After burying the hatchet with Taylor Swift, Kanye West may have just found himself a new industry enemy. Notoriously outspoken Oasis alum Liam Gallagher took to Twitter on Wednesday evening, Feb. 25, to criticize West, 37, and his performance at the 2015 Brit Awards.
Introduced by his wife Kim Kardashian, the "Only One" rapper performed a new song, "All Day," at London's O2 Arena. West was confirmed as a last-minute performer for the awards show, and required copious bleeps during the TV broadcast of his swear word-heavy track.
Surrounded by backup performers and collaborators, West rapped "All day, n---a / How long y'all playas ball? All day, n---a / How much time y'all spent at the mall? All day, n---a / How long it take you to get this fly? All day, n---a."
"Kanye West. Utter S--t. LG x," Gallagher, 42, wrote, signing the tweet with his initials to show it was a message directly from him.
"@kanyewest ...And you're a million miles away from College Dropout," he continued, referencing the Grammy winner's celebrated 2004 debut studio album. "That's artistry. LG x"
Gallagher had positive words for the "All Day" rapper in the past, telling Rolling Stone in 2013 that West's Yeezus album was "f--king great," adding, "I really like it. Particularly that track ["Black Skinhead"] – it's f--king out there, do you know what I mean? It's got a great low-fi, punk vibe to it."
West is hardly the first artist that Gallagher has targeted with harsh criticism. He previously feuded with Robbie Williams, Daft Punk, and Blur, just to name a few. West has yet to comment on Gallagher's criticism.
