What is Kanye saying? Image: Facebook
Kanye West has a mind to do it all. He just released his new album Ye, got banned from a Wyoming ranch for partying all wrong, unveiled his new Yeezy fashion campaign, professed his love for Deadpool. And also took a sly dig at Deadpool's soundtrack.
In all fairness, we all thought Kanye's favourite superhero is Kanye himself. But turns out the Jesus Walks singer is a Deadpool fanboy and wants to score for the movies featuring the Merc with a Mouth. But also thinks the franchise might have ripped off his music.
He recently took to Twitter and alleged that the Deadpool soundtrack bears a lot of resemblance to his own 'sound.'
"I love both Deadpool movies🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥… I heard tracks in it that sound similar to mine… bro I would have cleared my music for Deadpool …: Kanye tweeted recently, admitting that he is ready to license his music if they are making more movies.
Okay, we have to ask — is that a diss, Kanye?
"Your guys writing and approach is so innovative … I love how you guys break the 4th wall… thank you for being innovative and please know I’m down to clear next time," added Kanye.
Though Kanye admits to being a fan, he keeps talking about "clearing his music". This obviously means that he believes the Deadpool soundtracks have been in some way lifted from his work.Deadpool 2 recently toppled Avengers: Infinity War at the box office, and received widespread acclaim. The movie's soundtrack was created by American music producer Tyler Bates (of Sucker Punch, Dawn of the Dead fame) and garnered positive reviews.
Deadpool main man Ryan Reynolds responded to Kanye's claims on Twitter. "Agree. I’m having a word with Celine Dion," Reynolds tweeted, referring to the Canadian singer who sang the number Ashes for Deadpool 2.
It is not clear if Reynolds is taking Kanye's allegations seriously or is just kidding. But knowing him, we think it's the latter.
