LOS ANGELES, Jan. 28 (UPI) -- Rapper Kanye West spent over an hour Wednesday slamming Wiz Khalifa on Twitter over a misunderstood tweet.

West, who recently returned as a social media regular to promote his upcoming album Waves, sent out more than 30 consecutive tweets criticizing fellow rapper Khalifa, who referred to "KK" after criticizing West's album name.

"Hit this KK and become yourself," Khalifa tweeted Wednesday after asserting "Waves" belongs to rapper Max B.

"Like, oh that's Ye and I can put his wife's initials on my twitter @wizkhalifa," the "Black Skinhead" singer reportedly wrote in response.

In the midst of West's rant, Khalifa clarified that "KK" meant weed. "Reason's why your not wavy," he wrote. "Go bacc to Swish."

During his rant, Yeezy referred to Khalifa's hit pop song featured in Furious 7 as well as his ex-girlfriend Amber Rose, whom he also dated.

Afterwards, West turned around to embrace positive vibes, saying "What's sad is I love Wiz and I love all all my brothers and all people," and "Ima take these down cause it's all about positive energy blessings blessings positive energy blessings."

Later, West finally acknowledged his mistake, saying "I'm happy that I now know that KK means weed... please excuse this confusion ... now back to #WAVES."
