Kanye West has a history of having tantrums on social media. Ye has previously written harsh posts against Pete Davidson, Kim Kardashian’s ex-boyfriend. Now, Adidas is the focus of the rapper’s most recent Instagram rage.
Kanye has continued his war of words aimed at Adidas executives as he says he needs to buy his own major shoe company in order to be the chief decision maker. The 45-year-old artist posted a text message on Instagram on Monday morning expressing his desire to make a significant move similar to Authentic Brands CEO Jamie Salter’s acquisition of Reebok from Adidas earlier this year.
The rap legend went on to claim that he’s went to JP Morgan to inquire about an acquisition but managing director and vice chairman of investment banking firm, Jing Ulrich, is on the board of Adidas. Kanye wrote to his 17million followers, “I need a shoe company like how Jamie Salter bought Reebok or I’ll take over some shoe factories.”
‘I’ve went to JP Morgan but of course they won’t give me no deal flow cause Jin(g) Ulrich is on the board of both Adidas and JP Morgan. What shoe company will give me control. I need to be the head of the board and chief decision maker.’
Ye captioned the text post with a mention of his late mother Donda West. The All Of The Lights hitmaker said, “My mama was an English professor and I was an English major I know how to speak correct English but I’m here to correct the English.” Meanwhile, Kanye has had a very successful partnership with the Germany based shoe giant with his Adidas Yeezy line which launched in 2015.
This was not the first time he has mentioned executive Jing as the previous day he bashed her and other enemies including Adidas executive Daniel Cherry, Kid Cudi, Pete Davidson, and more. The rapper-turned-designer publicly declared a feud with Adidas, whom he’s partnered with via his Yeezy empire. Additionally, he added fuel to his fallouts with Cudi and Davidson. We’ll have to see what Kanye has in store for us next. Stay tuned to Thirsty for further updates.
