Kanye West Apologizes To Nike For Slandering Their Swoosh [VIDEO]
Kanye West speaks and rants with passion and worries about the consequences later (if ever).
The Yeezus life superstar has been on a whirlwind press run which capsized with him parting ways with Nike and signing a deal with adidas to release his exclusive sneakers. In a recent interview with Sway Callaway for MTV’s RapFix, Kanye blacked out due to his frustrations with the sports giant over the delay of his Yeezy line and spazzed on Sway, screaming “You ain’t got the answers.”
“I feel honored to have had the opportunity to blow Yeezy up with Nike and I’m not knocking them on the way out or burning no bridges,” he calmly stated to reporter Tallboy. “I apologize for my frustration earlier and I think it’s go-time; it’s turn-up time.”
The Air Yeezys were a top-secret project and the sequel was supposed to be bigger and badder. Obviously that never transpired.
Fellow rapper 2 Chainz recently expressed his belief that rappers can move shoes off shelves just as well as athletes can. With their influence in the street culture at an all-time high. Maybe he’s right.
Now that Nike has been extended the olive branch of the Lord Yeezus, the Anti-Defamation League are patiently waiting their token of humility. Apparently Ye offended them during his Breakfast Club interview.
