"Hi Grammys this is the most important living artist talking."

After taking on critic Bob Ezrin in a lengthy Twitter rant on Tuesday, Kanye West was back at it again on Wednesday, laying out his plans to fix the GRAMMY Awards, explain true freedom, and give out free Yeezys. We think.

The rapper started out by addressing Neil Portnow, saying he wanted to "sit down" with the president of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences to talk about "fixing" the awards show.

"I think the Grammys are super important!!!" wrote West, who has 21 golden gramophones and 57 total GRAMMY nominations to his name. "I know so many cool artists whose hearts have been broken by the politics including mine. We need to fix this."

"I feel the Grammy awarding system is way off and completely out of touch," he added. "If I'm not at the show next year then there is no show."

West went on to call out specific artists and directors he felt had been slighted by the awards show, including Dexter Navy, who directed A$AP Rocky's super-trippy "L$D" music video and his "I Won" collaborator, Future.

"You like your black people a certain way also," West tweeted. "You wouldn't have Future perform and that man owned the clubs last summer...All artists have a problem with it and I am going to fix it for us all starting right now."

"Neil please reach out as soon as possible so we can make the Grammys culturally relevant again," he added. "Us real music guys wanna have fun too."

Portnow did, in fact, reach out after West's request.

".@kanyewest, I'm not on Twitter but just hit me up and let's have that sit down. – Neil Portnow," he responded, via the GRAMMYs official Twitter account.

In another series of tweets, the rapper also seemingly responded to concerns that have been expressed about his financial status and mental health, writing, "I'm not crazy I'm free. No slave mindset no more. I'm free. I'm free. I'm free."

"I wrote Saint Pablo after admitting to my greatest shame my personal debt," he tweeted. "But I'm not ashamed anymore. I'm proud as an entrepreneur that I gave everything I had to my dreams."

The rapper continued his message of "all positive vibes," even sending love (and possibly, free Yeezys) to the paparazzi photographers that follow his family's every move.

"Respect to everyone working hard to keep a roof over their kids," West tweeted. "That is one of the reasons I respect the paps so much. And yes I've talked to Adidas and we gon hook y'all up with free Yeezys and Adidas. All positive vibes."

"I'm not even gon lie to you. I love me so much right now," he continued. "I represent what people can't say. I love being a voice of freedom when so many people are scared to speak up. The world needs a guy like me. The world needs somebody to not be scared and tell his truth. You won't always agree with me but I'm gon always be me. I'm woke!"

In the middle of his other musings -- asking Twitter to remove fake Kanye accounts that are "not Mark Twain level," plotting to steal designer Demna Gvasalia from Balenciaga and celebrating his song, "Waves," hitting No. 1 on the Billboard weekly streaming chart -- the rapper and designer also had an inspired fashion idea.

"I just thought of the craziest idea of all ... I'm going to sell winter coats in the winter!!!"

He also promised a new album, "coming this summer." No word on how he'll fit in production with all this tweeting.
