Kanye West Says Sorry to Nike: ‘I Apologize For My Frustration’
Well, well, well. After bashing Nike on his Yeezus tour and in radio interviews, Kanye West is trying to make amends with the sneaker giant. The mercurial rapper-producer has publicly apologized to Nike for his unflattering remarks about the company.
“It just feels good to be able to create more, create product that I can control the pricing on,” he said. “I feel very comfortable to have a great partner backing my ideas and allowing me to think and be creative and giving me that shot.”
The ‘Black Skinhead’ rapper then went on to apologize to the Swoosh brand and expressed no hard feelings for the sneaker company.
“I really feel honored to have had the chance to blow Yeezy up with Nike and I really appreciate everything they did for me,” he said. “I’m not knocking them on the way out or burning no bridges. I apologize for my frustration earlier. I just think it’s time. It’s go time. It’s turn up time.”
West is exactly right — it’s indeed turn up time. His reported $10 million deal with the Three Stripes brand should keep him busy in 2014 with developing a kick-a– shoe for the company.
