[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Kanye West[/lastfm] might be the most hilarious person on Twitter today.
The ultra self-aware hip-hop giant took to the micro-blogging tool today to address the fracas going on between himself and Jay-Z and pop’s reigning princess Britney Spears in the battle for the number one single on iTunes.
The resulting tweet was pure brilliance!
I'm really happy for you and I'mma let you be #1, but me and Jay-Z single is one of the best songs of all time! LOL—

Kanye West not only wins based on the fact that he’s bringing up the giant faux paux he made when he notoriously stole the mic from [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Taylor Swift[/lastfm] at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, but he’s owning it!
The comment, “Imma let you finish” sparked many an internet meme and now Kanye West has also used the meme to talk about the battle for the #1 single between himself and Britney Spears. It takes meta to a new level and is so, so awesome!
- Is Kanye West screwing up again by making a joke out of his onstage tirade? Or is it perfectly respectable to kid about the times you’ve messed up, even when you’re super famous?
