Kanye West performs at the 2015 iHeartRadio Music Festival at MGM Grand Garden Arena on Sept. 18, 2015 in Las Vegas, Nevada. 

Kanye West pulled a fast one on Twitter on Tuesday night (Jan. 26), switching up the album title for his seventh studio effort for the third time. "New album title, WAVES," he announced on his timeline alongside a remixed version of the handwritten tracklist he debuted this past weekend.

The LP name change -- it was initially titled So Help Me God before becoming Swish -- set off many a tweet from famous folks, particularly rapper Wiz Khalifa, who made a case that incarcerated MC Max B was the originator of the wavy movement. 

Kanye West on 'Waves': 'This Is Not Album of the Year. This Is Album of the Life.'

Other blue checks on Twitter also weighed including Questlove and John Mayer.

Singer Miguel even seized the moment by releasing his song "Waves" featuring Travi$ Scott.

Meanwhile, close Jenner affilitate and West Coast spitter Tyga set the record straight on rumors saying he would be on 'Ye's upcoming project.

West's wife Kim and her sister, Khloe Kardashian also teased views from Waves after dropping in on Kanye's session.

Yeezy also made a note that the new album title meant no disrespect to Max B or Andre Harrell.

The Chicago rapper will be debuting his full-length album on its Feb. 11 release date at New York's Madison Square Garden alongside his Fashion Week presentation for Yeezy Season 3.
