Kanye West changed his album title from SWISH to WAVES and not everybody is a fan. Wiz Khalifa took the opportunity to openly show his hate for the new album title. He says that he's a huge fan of incarcerated rapper Max B, of 'I'm Wavy' fame, and doesn't want 'Ye to try and take that wave.
Please don't take the wave.— KOE (@wizkhalifa) January 27, 2016
Max B is the wavy one. He created the wave. There is no wave without him. — KOE (@wizkhalifa) January 27, 2016

Chase N. Cashe has also been sharing his feelings about it and he has the same thoughts as Wiz Khalifa.
Don't even play yourself by stroking your own ego tryna claim the wave. Max B. is the only curator of the Wave we're all followers of him. — Chase N. Cashe (@ChaseNCashe) January 27, 2016

New album title, SWISH — Spread Love (@mickjenkins) January 27, 2016
My new album is called 'Kanye'— WAVVES (@wavves) January 27, 2016
Kanye has responded to some of the criticism.
All respect to Andre Harrel and Max B #Waves — KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) January 27, 2016
But Wiz wasn't buying it:
