KANYE WESTRIPS ADIDAS FOR ‘YEEZY DAY’… I Didn’t Approve!!!
Kanye West is upset that Adidas held this year’s Yeezy Day event without his consent and has a number of other grievances with the company. Yeezy Day is back this year.
On Tuesday, the third annual Yeezy Day, when Adidas re-releases several of the popular styles from Ye’s sneaker collection for two days, the artist laid out his concerns in an IG message to Complex.
Regarding Three Stripes, you were frank, saying,
“Adidas made up the Yeezy day idea without my approval. Then went and brought back older styles without my approval.”
The 45-year-old claims that, other from colours, names, and the hiring of employees that worked for him, he didn’t give the brand the “go-ahead” on pretty much everything.
“Went and hired a GM of Yeezy without my approval,” West said. “Took talent on the production side and sprinkled them throughout Adidas originals without my approval.”
Ye and Adidas have recently been at odds over the launching of their own slides, which Ye alleges was a copycat version of the Yeezy slides.
Ye also addresses this in the post, writing, “The GM lied to my face and said they didn’t have the capacity when I originally ordered Adidas to create more Yeezy slides.”
