Kanye West joining Twitter may have been the greatest thing to happen to the social media service. From ridiculous rants about his gaudy fashion sense to updates from studio sessions, Kon’s tweets are 140 characters of a kind. On a recent Sunday Morning, ‘Ye was moved enough by Justin Bieber‘s record “Runaway Love” to start filling up his Twitter timeline with tweets praising the young pop singer. He took it a step further by suggesting that Wu-Tang’s Raekwon jump on the remix with him after stating that Jodeci’s “Freek N You (Remix)” was one of his favorite remixes of all time. Well as an active member of the Twitter community The Chef was able use his tweets to get on board and make the “Runaway Love” (Remix) happen. But do all the notes hit right? Check the breakdown. —Mikey Fresh
