Corey Taylor Scolds Kanye West: ‘You Are Not the Greatest Living Rock Star’ [VIDEO]
Kanye West can add another name to his list of detractors: Slipknot's Corey Taylor.
The rapper is more than familiar with his name being on the tip of critics' tongues these days, especially when he's taking jabs at Beck's artistry during the 57th Annual Grammy Awards or telling the crowd at the 2015 Glastonbury Festival that they were “watching the greatest living rock star on the planet" after he covered Queen's hit song “Bohemian Rhapsody” last week. The latter boast has caused rock star Corey Taylor to scold Yeezy in a rather hilarious interview with Music Choice.
“Kanye, you are not -- not -- the greatest living rock star of all time. The fact that you had to tell people that, kinda says it all. You remind me of the guy who brags about p---- -- they never get as much as they brag about. Stop it," Taylor states as he slaps his own hand, mimicking a parent reprimanding a child. "Stop it!”
While some fans can appreciate the "All Day" MC's self-confidence, others, like Taylor, don't take kindly to his inflated ego. "Rap is the new rock and roll. We the rock stars," he exclaimed during an interview with Zane Lowe in 2013. Not according to the Slipknot frontman, Yeezy.
Take a look as Corey Taylor shares his very candid opinion about the rapper below.
