Carnage is kind of confusing. He has enjoyed massive success in the last few years, yet refuses to enjoy it until he is treated like an all out legend. This has resulted in some unfortunate encounters for his brand over the last 2 years or so including the classic “very much way harder better” Razer production video, as well as the most cringe worthy Twitter beef with Deadmau5. Carnage even pulled himself off of the Ultra 2018 line up due to the fact he felt that he was not respected in the curation of the event. Regardless if his claims of disrespect are legitimate or not, Carnage has had enough which led to this tweet.
It’s time I demand some god damn respect on my name…. producer of the year… wait till I drop this album… #CARNAGESEASON
First single January 12th.

Honestly this did not even effect me when I read it the first time as it is just usual Carnage rhetoric. But it got under the skin of some of the most respected artists in the game, who decided to chime in and remind Carnage what he wants is respect and not fear.
Dude, really? Is this a ’you’ thing or a generational thing? You GAIN respect with actions, ethics, work put it, not demand it. Geez. https://t.co/Ot003j00qA

He knows he’s not going to get actual respect so he writes things like this to incense people to RT his tweet. Kinda brilliant actually
