Kanye West Says He Makes More Money in Footwear Than Michael Jordan
Kanye West continued his Twitter rants this morning with a slew of controversial tweets on a variety of topics. Among the subjects addressed by 'Ye, the 40-year-old MC took jabs at Michael Jordan and Nike, while also praising Adidas for their on-going partnership.
Claiming to be making more money on shoes than former NBA player Michael Jordan, West insisted on Twitter that he's the "single highest paid person in footwear" at the moment. Shortly after taking a dig at the Airness, Kanye continued his tweeting spree by unveiling his future plans for his Yeezy apparel brand and the recent hiring he made. "Yeezy will become the biggest apparel company in human history by working with the most genius level talents and creating product at an affordable price," Kanye tweeted. "I hired the head of supply chain from the Gap."
A few minutes after his tweet, the "Faded" rapper got back on Twitter to express his satisfaction with his Adidas partnership. "Adidas have been great partners and they've let Yeezy be Yeezy. This could've never happened at Nike." The latest 'Ye jab at the Swoosh marks the second time in less than a month that Kanye fires at Nike.
With Kanye currently active on Twitter, expect the G.O.O.D. Music boss to tweet more outlandish comments and news on his upcoming Yeezy drops.
