In audio published by Page Six, West can be heard saying: "Look at that shit, they took my f**king stage off SNL without asking me.
"Now I'm bummed. That and Taylor Swift, fake ass."
"Now I ain't gonna do this. We're gonna break the motherf**king internet."
Kanye then goes on to compare himself to Pablo Picasso, Stanley Kubrick and Paul the Apostle.
"Are they f**king crazy?" he asks. "Whoa by 50% - Stanley Kubrick, Picasso, Apostle Paul, f**king Picasso and Escobar - by 50% more influential than any other human being.
"Don't f**k with me. Don't f**k with me. Don't f**k with me. By 50% dead or alive, by 50% for the next 1,000 years. Stanley Kubrick, 'Ye."
The jibe at Taylor seemingly makes reference to the pair's recent falling out over Kanye's name-checking of the Bad Blood singer in new track 'Famous', which includes the line, "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex, I made that bitch famous" - something which Swift quickly denounced as "misogynistic".
While Kanye's most recent insult may have only just come to light, Taylor threw some classy shade of her own at the megalomaniac rapper after her historic Grammy's victory this week, making a pointed acceptance speech swipe at people who "try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame".
