Tuesday night, Kanye West made his title change for his seventh album, originally called So Help Me God, then Swish, now WAVESWiz Khalifa, who has a baby with 'Ye's ex, Amber Rose, isn't impressed. As soon as Kanye tweeted the new title, Wiz started going in (from Argentina) on behalf of Max B, the 37-year-old Harlem rapper behind mixtapes like Wavie Crockett, A Wave Called Yes, Toothy Wavy, Return of the Wave and the French Montana collabo Coke Wave. In 2009 he was sentenced to 75 years in prison for felony murder, kidnapping and armed robbery. A$AP Rocky's 2015 album A.L.L.A. featured a track called "Max B."

Here's what Wiz had to say, followed by Yeezy's response:

Wiz's response to Kanye? "Yea aight."

Wiz has his own record, simply titled Khalifa, due Feb. 5. It's led by the single "Bake Sale," featuring Yeezy protege and frequent collaborator Travis Scott.
