In an interview with TallBoy.us, Kanye thanked Nike for giving him the opportunity to put out the Yeezys:

I’m still gonna do music but I really do feel honored to have had the chance to blow Yeezy up with Nike and I really appreciate everything they did for me. I’m not knocking them on the way out or burning no bridges, you know, I apologize for my frustration earlier. I just think it’s time. It’s go time. It’s turn up time.

Kanye also goes on to explain details of his deal with Adidas, hinting at retaining control over creative direction and pricing:

It just feels good to be able to create more, create product that I can control the pricing on. That I can do quality control on. I feel very comfortable to have a great partner backing my ideas and allowing me to think and be creative and giving me that shot. The same way Dame [Dash] gave me that record deal ten years ago and gave me a shot, I was able to do something creative with it. This is a new opportunity for me. I feel like I got a new family, fiance, child…I feel like I got a new creative outlet.

    Well Ye, in all seriousness, I truly hope that apology has nothing to do with PR. But on some real, and with all due respect, ironically after your Mom passed away, so did my original love for you as a true fan. It is interesting how that happened with Tiger Woods as well, after his Pops passed. I don’t know, but it just seems that ultimately, the things we think we can’t do without, were always with us, and that’s when we’re at our greatest. Going forward is cool, but like someone stated in another post, we can never forget our roots. Whatever you plan on doing with this next album Ye, go off in the mountains or something, like Rocky did when he had to fight the big Russian, or how Marvin did after Tammy left, and bring back something news worthy for real. Only the true greats can become their own kryptonite.
