Kanye West Calls Out Nike During Concert

Kanye West says that Nike CEO Mark Parker "tried to son" him.

Several days ago, Kanye West revealed that he did not receive royalties for Air Yeezy, a sneaker collaboration between the rapper and Nike.

Now, Kanye spoke on the matter again during the Madison Square Garden stop of the Yeezus tour this weekend, reports Complex.

"They try to act like people ain't line up for the Yeezys," said Kanye, "[Nike CEO] Mark Parker tried to son me. Yes. Son me because I am the sun and I will shine bright. And when I don't have as much money as a billionaire and when I don't have the factories that, that dude has over there, what I do have is my voice. Ain't no corporation that can take me away from my voice and I'm going to scream at the top of my motherfucking mountain as loud as I want. Anything I want. Whenever I want. Is that crazy? So I'm going to make the announcement on Monday with the corporation that finally let me get an opportunity to create."

West continued, saying, "I asked Nike when the Red Octobers supposed to drop, and they said, 'We don't know.'"

Kanye West has been criticizing various companies recently, including Zappos. West stated that he had gotten into an argument with the head of Zappos."Meanwhile, he sells all this shit product to everybody, his whole thing is based off of selling shit product."

Recently, Kanye West's G.O.O.D. Music opened an online clothing store. West also recently spoke at Harvard's Graduate School of Design.

    Keep in mind Reebok still paid Ross, so they could have spit in his face, stolen Gunplay's chain, and blew his car up, and yet business is still business.

    This is how I translate Kanye's latest rant: I got fucked out of a grip of cash by a bunch of white devils wearing nicer suits than me so I'm pissed as fuck and I'm gonna scream and yell and rant about it to the only people in the world who will listen to me!

  • WTF's a Kanye?

    I love how Kanye tries to call out all this corporate bullshit while "Black Skinheads" is currently playing in a cell phone commercial. And if you didn't get paid for the Yeezy's that means your dumb ass didn't spell out your contract correctly or you would be suing them right now, not ranting like a lunatic! This dude is mad because he got played by a better hustler than himself. When the streets meet the suits, the streets lose.

      he was in a nike commercial so theres a chance he got dropped from them too

    • ...

      Haha Rick Ross was dropped by Reebok... Fool

    • North West

      Yoo how would you feel if you signed a deal with someone and then they dont hold their end of the deal? What he's saying is kinda excessive and unnecessary but a man should be allowed to voice their opinion. I'm a fan of the old Kanye, College Dropout shit.

    • East

      If these companies don't want to work with him, these are companies that aren't right for Kayne West. Kind of like how Nike dropped Rick Ross because they don't like his controversity.

    • West

      Money ain't the issue here, you dumb pencil necked fuck. The fact of the matter is, Kanye's ranting is going to get him in trouble with a lot of companies in the near future.

    • East

      YO, he still making more money than you so your opinion is irrelevant. The whole world is shitting on him.

  • CEO NIke

    Keep buying are over priced product motherfuckers. Stay broke =)

    Negros didn't invent hip hop: it was the white man. Mel Gibson is the true inventor of this art form. One day while walking down the street, Mr Gibson was cornered in an alley and jumped by a gang of burly black man. One of those men was known as Africa Bambatta. He stole some poetry that he was writing for an English literature class along with a demo tape. He planned on reciting poetry to the beat of fast paced drums, but sadly, that tape was destroyed and now his dream and discovery(along with the truth) will never see fruition. Now, thanks to the laziness & shiftlessness of the black man, rap music is being used as a severe copout to escape their life in the ghetto instead of working hard, going to college, and earning a degree.

    • Pfft

      Hey all jokes aside, I love all my brothers and sisters. My best friends & neighbors are black. But most of them are your atypical lazy, shiftless bastards that can't hold a job & decide to rap for a living. And the fact of the matter is, they're absolutely terrible. I try to tell them that they should earn their GED & find real work instead of chasing a dream that will never happen. They'll be living on their mother's couches for the rest of their natural born lives. It's pathetic the way they try to leech off their parents & ask for support so they can start their "careers" in rap.

    Kanye West = Wanker. This guy is the most retarded person EVER.... he's pathetic. Wining like a little baby about everything and he actually WANTS people to listen?! You're good at music but you must certainly not THAT good.

    Oh, I thought he actually called Nike out on something based on what the headline said. Like how they employ under age children in sweatshops over seas and sell cheap product at ridiculously marked up prices. I'm not sure how Nike trying to "Son the Sun" or "take me away from my voice" is an urgent issue that anyone should give a shit about. To call Kanye conceited is only scratching the surface on his mental problems.

      Why doesn't Kanye go over to these sweat shops then and kick ass instead of crying like a self indulged little ho? He doesn't give two shits about what Nike does to get their product into the hands of paying customers. Who makes his shoes, monks?

      he doesnt care about any real issues like that! all he cares about is his money and his fame whore baby momma

    You just had a kid, Kanye. Spend a little less time crying and more time telling the world how happy you presumably are.

  • Chinese Skinhead

    Why does Kanye keep asking if he is crazy in these rants? Obviously he must feel very crazy if he is that self conscious about it. He seriously mentions it in every rant. Look how he just randomly drops the question in the middle of this rant. I think its time we call a spade a spade, no racist-pun intended.
