Kanye West Asked If He Would Resign With Nike for $1 Billion

Kanye West Asked If He Would Resign With Nike for $1 Billion

Doesn't sound like even a billi could bring 'Ye back.

Published January 12, 2016

Kanye West is famous for his hostility with members of the paparazzi, so it was a bit of a surprise when he actually conversed positively with them recently.

TMZ recently caught up with ‘Ye at LAX and asked him about his loyalty to Adidas. When given the hypothetical scenario of whether he would leave Adidas to go back to Nike for $1 billion, Yeezy responded, “It’s not about the money, man. It’s about the respect, the communication… Adidas is family.”

Wow. Sounds like even Bill Gates money isn’t tearing Kanye away from his current situation. This newest anecdote comes just after he released his song “Facts,” during which he slammed Nike by claiming they treat their employees like “slaves” and that his Yeezy shoes are doing better than Jordan Brand.
