Music tycoon Kanye West bailed on Nike following a dispute over royalties. In a recent interview with New York’s HOT 97, Kanye explained:
“So [Nike] said, ok cool, we’re gonna give you a bigger sandbox to play in. We’re gonna give you this amount right here to design, and two collections a year, and 30 SKU — that’s the amount of items that you have. Would that make you happy, Kanye?” And rightfully so, Kanye replied: “I need royalties.”
In that same interview Kanye announced his partnership deal with Nike’s rival, Adidas. Well, it seems Nike had a surplus of Air Yeezy 2 “Red October” shoes left over from Kanye’s contract.
The streets have been buzzing about sports footwear giants Nike and Adidas signing rappers (Drake and Kanye West) to exclusive partnership deals. Neither Drake nor Kanye seem to be athletically inclined. In fact, both men lean toward the Metrosexual side of the fashion aisle. Kanye kept the buzz going last night by announcing a release date for his new Kanye West x Adidas shoe line.

Michael Jordan may be the greatest basketball player breathing, but he forgot that in certain parts of the country he’s just a black man wearing cargo pants.
The NY Post’s Page Six reports that Jordan ruffled feathers at the exclusive Miami Beach country club when he showed up on the putting green wearing cargo pants.
British songstress Estelle was spotted out & about in Covent Garden, London outside Bungalow 8 early this morning wearing an unsightly rag on her head. Maybe she threw the rag on her head hoping the paps wouldn’t spot her. The young singer often dresses like an old woman, and she will regret that when she gets older.
