This evening, Kanye West and his fiancee Kim Kardashian sat down with Hot 97 radio DJ Angie Martinez to talk about a multitude of topics including fatherhood, Katie Couric, and of course…fashion. Yeezy happened to drop the ball when asked about his upcoming fashion projects stating that he did in-fact sign an apparel deal with Adidas, which has been a rampant rumor for the past week as the impending fashion line has been the talk of fashion blogs. In full context, West stated below:
So the old me, without a daughter, would have taken the Nike deal because I just love Nikes 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.
Congrats to Ye, let’s see if he can put his money where his mouth is. Shut up or put up. Watch more of the interview below.
