Kanye West Signs Deal With Adidas! Says He's Gonna Be Bigger Than Walmart!

kanye west adidas deal

Bye-bye, Air Yeezy, we hardly knew ye!

Kanye West had a lucrative and highly successful deal with Nike just a few years ago, but after having some issues with the brand, he's moving on and hooking up with Adidas!

That's like dumping your girlfriend and then dating her worst enemy!

Apparently, Yeezy was frustrated that Nike did not offer him any royalties on the Air Yeezy and Air Yeezy 2, and has signed a much better deal with Adidas, which WILL give him the royalties he so desperately needs to support his family and little North West!

During a recent interview, Kanye explained his reasoning:

"So the old me, without a daughter, would have taken the Nike deal because I just love Nike's so much. But the new me, with a daughter, takes the Adidas deal because I have royalties and I have to provide for my family. Nike told me, 'We can’t give you royalties because you’re not a professional athlete.' I told them, 'I'll go to the Garden and play one-on-no one.' I’m a performance athlete."

He also dropped some quotes that are guaranteed to go into the Kanye West Quotables archive. He said:

"Whatever is official, non-official, official—what y'all gonna see is I'm gonna be the Tupac of product."

Somebody put "Tupac of product" on a t-shirt, stat!

And in case you were wondering, 'Ye plans on being bigger than Walmart:

"I'm gonna be the first hip-hop designer and because of that I'm gonna be bigger than Walmart."

The first hip-hop designer!!! Bigger than Walmart!!!

We can't make this stuff up.

    Most hypocritical piece of shit ever. What happened to him saying people are slaves to corporations LOL I guess all that goes out the window if they pay enough. And did he seriously say he's going to be the first hip hip designer? Has he been living under a rock for the last 20 years?

    Funny, his deal with Nike ended years ago and he was fired from it because he could not produce any designs that Nike liked.

    So now years later after being fired he wants to re-write history.

    Face it Kanye you are not a designer (80's torn jeans and leather sweat pants) and you were FIRED!

    The Truth Hurts

    My Husband of 6 years left me with our three kids and a divorce letter, no note, no text, no explanation from him and follows another woman. I felt like my life was about to end, and was falling apart. I was in pieces. I contacted Prophet Mike, as soon as I finished contacting him via his email; I knew this was a Man I could totally rely on and trust. And within a few minutes of talking to him I felt much better, he is so calming, I listened to his advice and he began work for me and it worked within 6 days and I can't thank him enough. Now my husband is back to me and we solved our issues. We are even happier than before. I would just like to say that Prophet Mike really does do miracles. I would recommend him to any-one who needs help, You can contact him on purityspell@gmail.com
