Someone Asked Wiz Khalifa If "Yeezy Jumped Over Jumpman," and He Answered

Was his answer petty or nah?

Published April 19, 2016

Much to no one’s surprise, Wiz Khalifa has shared his sneaker loyalty does not lie with Kanye West.

In a new interview with Money Kicks, a Dubai-based YouTube channel, the rapper went through the host’s sneaker collection and shared his opinion on Yeezys. 

The enthusiastic young host asked, “Do you think Yeezy jumped over Jumpman?” Khalifa was quick to respond.

“Nah, hell no. Never. Jordan is a brand that’s not going no where. That’s like Chuck Taylor,” he said.

Khalifa made it known he’s not a hater, though.

“Nah, I don’t,” he said when asked if he likes Ye’s sneakers. “I don’t hate anything, I just don’t like the shoe.”

Petty or honest? We're going to go with the latter, mainly because he kept his replies short and simple instead of really going in on Ye.
