Kanye West's Twitter fingers were at it again Tuesday – and this time, he didn't shy away from indirectly mentioning Taylor Swift.

Although the rapper, 38, didn't refer to Swift, 26, by name, one tweet was pointed at a certain two-time album of the year Grammy winner he called "you know who."

West wrote, "I made Dark Fantasy and Watch the Throne in one year and wasn't nominated for either and you know who has 2 albums of the year."

West mentioned Swift – with whom he has a renewed rift after taking credit for her fame in his new song "Famous" – while responding to music producer Bob Ezrin's scathing review of his new album The Life of Pablo.

"Has anybody ever heard of Bob Ezrin???" West began his series of tweets. "What the f--- does he know about rap..."

Ezrin, 66 – who was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame in 2004 – is best known for his work with Lou Reed, Alice Cooper, Kiss and Pink Floyd, among others. "Unlike other creators in his genre like Jay-Z, Tupac, Biggie or even M.C. Hammer for that matter, it's unlikely that we'll be quoting too many of Kanye's songs 20 years from now," Ezrin wrote in a Lefsetz newsletter.

"[Kanye] didn't open up new avenues of public discourse like NWA, or introduce the world to a new art form like Grandmaster Flash, or even meaningfully and memorably address social issues through his music like Marshall, Macklemore and Kendrick," he penned.

The musician continued: "Kanye's greatest achievements have been in the form of excessive behavior, egomaniacal tantrums and tasteless grandstanding."

It's safe to say West did not agree with Ezrin, as he went on to criticize him even more.
