Kanye West is a man of many words and sometimes he uses them when he doesn’t need to. This led to a hiatus from Instagram, but he returned in order to call out an old sneaker rival.
Ye’s Instagram was silent for a long time after he was suspended for 24 hours following rant on Pete Davidson and anyone else who happened to be in his crosshairs at the time. Now he’s back and Ye has a message for Adidas. He claims that they are ripping off the Yeezy brand’s look.
THIS IS YE driving down the same street Kobe passed on Maybe I feel that Mamba spirit right now To Kasper I’m not standing for this blatant copying no more To all sneaker culture To every ball player rapper or even if you work at the store This is for everyone who wants to express themselves but feel they can’t cause they’ll loose their contract or be called crazy Bravery is not not being afraid Bravery is overcoming your fear for your truth This Ye with the blue paint on my face These shoes represent the disrespect that people in power have to the talent This shoe is a fake Yeezy made by adidas themselves I’m not talking to DC about this either Kasper come talk to me Happy Monday
Adidas has not publicly responded to this very public instance of Kanye West putting them on blast. Only time will tell if they reveal their true inspiration and it’s not Ye, but we will be waiting on the edge of our seats for Kanye West to hit the “send” button on Instagram once again.
