Slipknot's Corey Taylor: Kanye Is "Not the Greatest Living Rock Star"

It's unclear if Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor is a Kanye West fan. It is clear, however, that the guy is not a fan of Yeezus' recent performance at Glastonbury, where the rapper claimed, "You are now watching the greatest living rockstar on the planet. ... I'm the greatest living rock star on the planet." To back it up, Kanye did a massive cover of Queen's Brit-rock classic "Bohemian Rhapsody."

Corey Taylor took the words to heart—and rejected them. A new video floating all around the 'net features the metal man criticizing Ye's stage banter. Watch it above, and cringe or cheer based on your allegiances.

Slipknot's frontman begins, after a deep breath: "Kanye, you are not, not the greatest living rock star of all time." (Maybe he missed the double negative in there?) He continues: "The fact that you had to tell people that kinda says it all. You remind me of the guy that brags about pussy. They never get as much as they brag about. Stop it. Stop it."
