Kanye West Calls Out Adidas For Selling Colors Of His Popular Sneakers

Rapper Kanye West has accused German sports apparel manufacturer Adidas for selling unauthorized colours of Yeezy sneakers.
Several artists including Snoop Dogg and Ty Dolla Sign came forward to show their support to the artist in the comments. Kanye thanked them for their support in a separate post.

Instead of celebrating his most recent album ‘Vultures 1’ staying at No. 1 for the subsequent week, he rather decided to ‘go after’ Adidas for selling colours of his well known Yeezy tennis shoes that he won’t ever support. He complained that the company was taking advantage of legitimate provisos and dinky language to exploit artists such as himself.

He said Adidas was using contract conditions to beguile artists and scrutinized the advancement of Yeezy Boosts in a new “steel grey” shade, which he declared was inauthentic.

Notwithstanding the evident compromise displayed in the photograph with Adidas’ Boss on February 12, Kanye’s new allegations show a continuation of the contention.

In a separate event, Kanye West and Ty Dolla $ign concluded their European Vultures listening events, where North West, Kanye’s daughter, made a surprise appearance on stage in Paris.

The heartfelt moment saw North perform her father’s track Talking from the Vultures 1 album, captivating the crowd with her performance alongside her proud father. The lyrics of her verse included lines like “It’s your bestie, Miss Miss Westie/ Don’t try to test me/ It’s gonna get messy.”

Vultures 1 debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, earning 148,000 equivalent album units in its opening week. The album was released independently under Kanye’s YZY label, marking his first project since facing controversies and making controversial remarks that led to several brands distancing themselves from him, including Universal, Def Jam, Adidas, and Gap.

Notwithstanding his success on the chart, Kanye’s ongoing debate with Adidas recommends that the friction between the rapper and the brand are probably not going to be settled at any point in the near future.
