Deadmau5 started the beef Tuesday night when he responded to a recent ‘Ye tweet that showed the rapper had a tab of popular torrent site The Pirate Bay up on his computer screen. Kanye appeared to be downloading a copy of Serum which is a music editing software sold by XFer Records. Deadmau5, whose real name is Joel Thomas Zimmerman, is a co-founder of Xfer Records and didn’t seem too pleased with ‘Ye allegedly not paying for the software.
He then suggested starting a Kickstarter campaign so that Kanye could afford it.
It wasn’t long before Kanye got wind of Deadmau5’s disapproval.
Deadmau5 responded to Kanye in a more abrupt and shortened manner.
