Kanye West may have his hands full with Twitter but The Life of Pablo rapper shared that he's considering an Instagram account -- but only under one condition.

"Steve Ballmer can I please redesign the Los Angeles Clippers mascot," tweeted 'Ye, who received a quick lunch invite from Ballmer himself on Twitter. "Better than lunch, Let's grab a Clips game together and talk," the NBA team's franchise chief said.

West then accepted the lunch date. "%1000 Steve Ballmer. Let's meet this week if you have time. I was hanging with Chris Paul last night."

Beyond Twitter, West also made several tweaks to cuts off his seventh studio effort TLOP. As a Reddit user pointed out, songs like "Famous" saw lyrical changes -- "She be Puerto Rican day parade wavin,'" was flipped to "She in school to be a real estate agent" and additional vocal layering.

Earlier this month, West tweeted that final mixes of the album are forthcoming: "excited to see my family and finish the final mixes of the Life of Pablo and keep working on Turbo Grafx 16 and Season 4." He is also working on the Pablo follow-up Turbo Grafx 16 and plans to release three (potentially CD-less) albums this year. 

Reps for Kanye West and Tidal did not immediately respond to Billboard's requests for comment.
