Slipknot Frontman Has Opinion About Kanye West

Corey Taylor does not agree with 'Ye's self-proclaimed title as "the No. 1 Rock Star on the Planet"

So Help Us God: Where's Kanye West's New Album?
When it comes to Kanye West’s public antics, nothing seems to surprise his fans anymore

Many people enjoy Kanye West’s music. Kanye West is one of those people. Many others do not like Kanye West’s music. Corey Taylor, the frontman for the heavy-metal band Slipknot, took issue with ‘Ye’s self-proclaimed title as “the No. 1 Rock Star on the Planet.” Kanye first deemed himself this during a 2013 interview with Zane Lowe, and brought it up again during his controversial headlining performance at Glastonbury. To voice his important opinion, Taylor filmed a short video for Music Choice where he mimes slapping Kanye on the wrist like a child and advises him that if you have to say you’re the No. 1 Rock Star, you probably aren’t.

Slipknot, for what it’s worth, were last featured on SPIN because their guitarist got in a knife fight with his brother, and for being told by California fire officials that they couldn’t light a bunch of camel shit on fire at their music festival.
