Deadmau5 Versus Ultra: Four Things That'll Probably Piss Off Joel Zimmerman at UMF 2013

Kanye West

Freak-Out Odds: High

"I like fucking hip-hop and the hands-on technological stuff," Deadmau5 said in an interview with Vibe last month, explaining how a collaboration between he and Cypress Hill manifested.

But Zimmerman isn't as eager to work with Yeezy, as he was to partner with B-Real. When asked what rapper he'd want to work with on a new production, Deadmau5 said, "anyone other than fucking Kanye."

He added, "I fucking hate him. He's just trying too hard. But the problem is he's succeeding at it. It's like, 'Oh, I'm so hate-able.' And everyone is like, 'Yeah, I hate him.' Ah fuck, he wins!"

While we've no reason to suspect West will be in town during Ultra, it's not unlikely to spot he and Mrs. Kris Humphries, Kim Kardashian, hand-in-hand at a Heat game or dressed up like superheroes at LIV.

Batman vs. Deadmau5? Let's just hope the latter has on the correct pair of socks.
