Kanye West

Theraflu Has Last Laugh

in Rap Drama

4/17/2012 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Kanye West and Theraflu
The people at Theraflu insist they're not as stuffy as you think ... claiming they DID NOT force Kanye West to change the title of his new song.

The song in question is "Theraflu" ... or WAS "Theraflu" -- Kanye retitled his Kris Humphries diss track over the weekend and it's now known as, "Way Too Cold."

Rumors are swirling that Kanye buckled under legal pressure from the company behind Theraflu -- but both Kanye and the cold medicine people claim it's all BS.

In fact, the Theraflu people sent us a statement about the situation ... telling us, "Novartis Consumer Health did not ask that the name be changed -- that request would be way too cold."

Ha. Ha. Ha.

Kayne West is a narcissistic jerk. Him and Kim both are. Kris Humphries has not done anything to Kayne or to Kim to maliciously bash on them but they do it to Kris?

Goes to show you who are the immature callous COLD ones, both Kim and Kayne are. Those two are WAY TOO COLD to even be decent human beings, they only care about themselves and the latest designer bling and shoes.

No Kris Humphries has the last laugh in Kanye West TheraFlu Battle in rap diss. Kanye has no power nor does Jay Z has any power to get Kris H dropped from the Nets. The Russian owner of the Nets made a statement that he supports his player(Hump) in this epic battle. He owns 80% of the Nets valued at 200 million dollars. Jay Z owns 4.5 million stake which is around 1% of the nets which equals 0 power. So the diss he made his a lie in general. BTW, Jay was at the Hump game when he dropped 29 points on the Heat. He played without a center/starting point guard and small forward. They almost won. Basicly the song was about Kim rejecting Kanye for the Hump. Hump was her first choice over him what an epic diss. GO Kanye!!!! Way too Cold

Kris should release a Kanye diss song and call it Preparation H. Or maybe Tampax would be more appropriate

The people who should be angry at kayne west for his song is his BIT_H JayZ and the ownership of the New Jersey Nets telling people Kayne has the ability to actually run the team and hire and fire players at his will. Hey Jay you need more friends like kayne?

i understand he has something to do with rap. NOT A CELEBRITY. Who gives a sh*t about some lame as rap song? These idiots have no talent, except how to extract large amounts of cash from the public. Wait, that's their managers.
