Kanye West Says He’s Dropping Nike For Adidas

(AllHipHop News)Hold up, I ain’t trying to stunt, man, but these new Yeezys jumped over the jump man,” rapped Kanye West on Cruel Summer’s “New God Flow.” While Mr. West suggested that his signature Air Yeezys show line topped the classic Air Jordans in 2012, it appears in 2013 Ye is ready to dropped Nike all together and jump over to another brand.

In an interview with Hot 97’s Angie Martinez, Kanye spoke on how Nike did not offer him royalties on the sale of Yeezys and as a result a deal with rival Adidas could be in the future.

“The old me without a daughter might take the Nike deal cause I just love Nike so much,” said Ye. “But the new, me with a daughter, takes the Adidas deal because I have royalties and I have to provide for my family.”

When Martinez asked if the partnership with Adidas is official Kanye suggests that whatever happens next he will become the “Tupac of product.”

“There ain’t no Tupac of rap except for Tupac,” stated Kanye. “I’m going to be the first Hip Hop designer and because of that I’mma be bigger than Walmart.”

Kanye and Nike released two versions of the Yeezys. The initial Yeezys came out in 2009 and the Yeezy II’s became available in 2012.
