Kanye West has apologised for his latest Twitter rant, in which he blasted music producer Bob Ezrin as an ''idiot''.

The 38-year-old hit out at music producer Bob Ezrin earlier today, slamming him as an ''idiot'' and even sympathising with his children, but the rapper has now apologised for using the ''B word'' in his 200-word blast.

He tweeted:

However, it is not initially clear which word Kanye is referring to. The star's apology could simply be a reference to him using the word ''Bob'' while taking aim at the Pink Floyd producer, who angered the rapper by writing a blog post saying he is nowhere near the level of Jay Z, Tupac, The Notorious B.I.G. or ''even MC Hammer''.

Bob also slammed Kanye's ''egomaniacal tantrums'' and ''tasteless grandstanding'' and compared him to a streaker at a sports venue in the article. Another b-word the star could be referring to is ''bro'', which he calls Bob while disagreeing with the producer who claimed in his blog post that the 'Bound 2' hitmaker didn't ''meaningfully and memorably address social issues'' through his music like Macklemore.

A section of Kanye's rant read:

He also appeared to make a dig at Taylor Swift by poking fun at someone ''who has 2 albums of the year''. The 26-year-old stunner has won Album of the Year twice at the Grammy Awards, for her 2009 record 'Fearless' and her fifth studio album '1989'.
