Kanye West
is being slammed as "ignorant" and "distasteful" over a lyric on his new album which uses Parkinson's disease as a punch line ... TMZ has learned.

The song in question is called "On Sight" -- which includes the lyric, "A monster about to come alive again / Soon as I pull up and park the Benz / We get this bitch shaking like Parkinson's."

Now, TMZ has learned the American Parkinson Disease Association is upset about the lyric -- with the org.'s VP Kathryn Whitford telling us, "We find these lyrics distasteful and the product of obvious ignorance."

FYI -- the APDA has been around for over 50 years and it's the largest organization in the country dedicated to helping those with Parkinson's and furthering efforts to find a cure.

So far, no response from Kanye's camp.

I think we should have a Charity Boxing Match, Muhammad Ali Vs Kayne West in a Boxing Match, but that would not be fair to put up the Greatest of all time against a Guy who lost Very early in the first round to a STOP SIGN, that was Stationary and did not fight Back?

Lets see if Kayne has the GUTS to say anything to Layla Ali about Parkinson's, I bet she will not be as nice as the stationary Street Sign?

I listen to metal and some bands write about mutilating babies, ejaculating blood and much more. What's the fuss about? It's music - get a bloody grip.

I dont think Kanye cares about being called ignorant or distasteful. Doubt the APDA actually care that much either, they just want their organisation mentioned in the news which is fair enough.

Most overrated rapper of all time.
Mediocre talent, at best.
Tupac and Biggie must be rolling over in their graves knowing that this closeted homosexual idiot is one of the biggest hip-hop stars in the world now.
