Last night, Kanye West sat across from Jimmy Kimmel, unwilling to back down from some of the “free-thinking” rhetoric he’d aligned himself with earlier this year. If you were hoping his political comments were a gimmick for his exhaustive G.O.O.D Music press run, this interview probably did little to ease those thoughts. But, the show wasn’t all a wash. Jimmy Kimmel compiled a new roundup of Mean Tweets, this time with all of your favorite rappers. The results are pretty damn funny.
Rap is a sport in which the competitors are not easily rattled. So the idea of watching these polarizing figures in rap, reading off some of the meanest tweets Kimmel and his team could find is genuinely too funny for words. Of all the responses, PUSHA-T and Remy Ma were quick with comebacks, which isn’t surprising given their track record with diss tracks. Others, like Big Sean, probably just spawned another meme of themselves. Watch the rest of the video below.
