After launching a set of less-than-humble statements about his "creative genius,” pop icon Kanye West has come up against some critical opposition.

After the 36-year-old rap artitst has gone on multiple Twitter rants about his own opinions, Nick Cannon decided it was time to fire back.

“I love @KanyeWest like a brother & been one of his biggest fans & friends since day 1," the "America's Got Talent host wrote. "But Genius is eternal patience."

"@KanyeWest Real geniuses don’t have to tell everyone that they are a genius," the 33-year-old continued. "Maybe I should’ve just called him and told him that in private. Oops, my bad! Twitter-stream-of-consciousness LOL."

Nick then concluded, writing, "I just got online and saw all these @KanyeWest interviews and I was inspired to rant,” explained Cannon. “Oh well, going back to Thanksgiving. We cookin’ son!"

As of yet, no response has come from the pop powerhouse.
