When Kanye West is around, the drama follows. Some believe it’s the Kardashian influence that to blame. Really, it could just be his anger issues and bipolar disorder. Recently, however, it is clear that Ye is channelling his frustrations thru with his feud with Adidas – as it continues to worsen.
The 45- year-old rap star takes to Instagram once again to air his frustrations with the worldwide sportswear giant, Adidas. he claims that the brand offered him a $1 billion USD buyout. The singer began to attack Adidas’ executives in response to the buyout offer; as well as over the alleged release of products without his knowledge.
“The fact [Adidas] felt they could color my shoes and name them without my approval is really wild,” Ye captions on an Instagram post. He adds, “I really care about building something that changes the world and something I can leave to my kids. They tried to buy me out for 1 billion dollars [USD]. My royalties next year are 500 million dollars [USD] alone.”
It seems that Instagram is the rapper’s main platform of public communication, so Ye has once again taken to the app to share with fans his future plans. In the post, Ye hinted at the uncertainty of his future with Adidas, mentioning his desire to take over his brand YEEZY. However, in the case he can’t take over, he is open to taking over any shoe company or factory for the construction of footwear. And according to HYPEBEAST, Ye is making “an open call for a shoe company that will let him become the head of the board and chief decision maker.”
But Ye didn’t stop there – sharing in a follow-up post a link to San Antonio Shoemakers’ Wikipedia page. Also recognised as SAS Shoes, which is a family-owned American shoe manufacturer based in San Antonio, Texas. This company is known for their handcrafted men’s and women’s shoes. And Ye accompanying the post with a “: ),” has left us thinking this could be his next step.
