"Will Ferrell has reached walking living breathing god status!"

History has proven that Kanye West isn’t the most decisive person when it comes to naming his albums.

So “as of now,” the rapper’s next release will be titled Turbo Grafx 16, he tweeted Friday night (Feb. 26). “Just on some super nerd vibes… one of my favorite gaming systems when I was a kid…,” West wrote, adding that Blazing Lazers was one of his favorite games.

West’s most recent album, The Life of Pablo, went through numerous name changes — Swish, Waves and So Help Me God — before he settled on the final title. TLOP was released on Feb. 13 following his appearance on Saturday Night Live.

Early Saturday morning, West continued his tweet storm on a lighter note, noting that he saw the new comedy film Zoolander 2, starring Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson, for the second time. It seems he was most impressed with Will Ferrell’s portrayal as menacing model agent Jacobim Mugatu.

“Will Ferrell has reached walking living breathing god status!” West tweeted. “I just want to thank Will Ferrell for the years of joy he has brought into my life with amazing comedy.”
