Kanye West has now moved his focus to Adidas. West recently criticized Adidas on his social media, which alarmed supporters. It turns out that Ye still has people in his corner in his fight against the massive clothing brand.

Swizz Beatz called for a boycott of Adidas in support of Kanye West, alleging the brand is “dead wrong.” After Ye pointed out similarities in some of his designs with non-Yeezy Adidas footwear, the iconic producer called out the sportswear brand.

Swizz Beatz insists that supporters do something about the “stolen” designs. He believes that if it can happen to Kanye West, it can happen to anyone. Swizz took to Instagram to express his support for the Yeezy founder.

“I usually mind my business but this is DEAD WRONG! If we let them do this to @kanyewest it will happen to us also!” 

Kanye West has taken to Instagram to criticize his Adidas partners, claiming they are seeking to sideline him. Among the numerous posts, he uploaded this week criticizing the brand and its employees was one condemning the firm for allegedly attempting to buy him out of his contract.

“The fact adi felt they could color my shoes and name them without my approval is really wild. But I promise everyone adidas is not as wild as me. I really really care about building something that changes the world and something I can leave to my kids.”

“Adidas tried to buy me out for 1 billion dollars. My royalties next year are 500 million dollars alone.” 

Kanye then took aim at Adidas VP Daniel Cherry, claiming that he earns $2 million per year while“Yeezy’s are 68 percent of Adidas online sales.”

“You guys thought cause DCP Daniel Cherry Pop went to Warden that he could politely give me a billion dollars to hand everything I built over.” 

Swizz Beatz, meanwhile, argued Kanye West should be appreciated as an inventor and called for a boycott. He also tagged the corporation and demanded that Adidas apologize. “@adidas you’re supposed to be original do the correct thing please!!!” Swizz Beatz finished.

“This man created this groundbreaking innovation and it should be respected as a creative ! YE is only asking for his work to be respected and not stolen that’s not crazy to me !! We not buying these !!!!!!!!!!!!”
