Kanye West Confirms Adidas Deal … Slams Nike
Kanye West is BOUND for Adidas after the rapper severed business ties with Nike. Mr. West made the revelation Monday during a radio interview on New York’s Hot 97, saying his decision was inspired by the birth of his daughter.
The announcement comes just one day after the grumpy rapper slammed Nike during his Madison Square Garden concert. During one of his routine rants, the rapper dissed the shoe giant for not giving him royalties on his Air Yeezys because he’s “not a professional athlete.”
“The old me without a daughter may have taken the Nike deal because I just love Nike so much and blah, blah, blah. But the new me takes the Adidas deal because I have royalties and I have to provide for my family,” West explained.
“I’m gonna be the first hip-hop designer and because of that, I’m gonna be bigger than Wal-Mart,” Ye explained during his radio interview.
“I am going to be the 2 Pac of product. There ain’t no 2 Pac in rap except for 2 Pac.”
No word on when Kanye’s kicks with Adidas will hit store shelves, but will you be supporting Mr. West and his shoe endeavor?
