Ezrin wrote a review critical of Kanye, calling his music unmemorable compared to rappers such as Jay Z and Tupac.

Ezrin's comments were out of touch and embarrassing, Kanye said.

It was everything that's wrong with the old guard of the music industry, Kanye said.

But that's nothing new, Kanye added.

He hinted that other artists — Taylor Swift, maybe?? — received accolades while his work was ignored.

Taylor has won a Grammy for Album of the Year for both Fearless and 1989.

Ezrin said other rappers, like Macklemore, were doing more important work by taking on social issues in their lyrics. Kanye was not having that. (No offense to Macklemore.)

But hey, what can you do.
