Deadmau5 Calls out The Chainsmokers Amid Album Release

Deadmau5 has beef with EVERYONE.

The Chainsmokers are under fire again by one of the most notable and notorious producers of all time. Late Friday night, Deadmau5 responded to a tweet by a fan asking how to take care of a problem like The Chainsmokers. His response was what you’d expect from the man himself:

Stating someone is using a ghost producer is a bold move, especially when it’s someone who’s been as successful as The Chainsmokers.

The Chainsmokers are coming off a massive 2016, where they topped the charts multiple times, took home gold at the Grammys, as well as released a new EP. Now, in 2017, they’re continuing to top the charts, but their debut album Memories...Do Not Open hasn’t been received well by critics. On the contrary, however, it’s the #1 album on iTunes.

Responses like this are nothing new for Deadmau5, as he’s known for putting artists on blast. Most recently, he’s beefed with Marshmello, but has also had beef with The Chainsmokers in the past.
