Kanye also mentioned some of the difficulties he has had with trying to bring in designers over to Yeezy from Nike. Ye shared a tale about when he had to engage in a legal battle with Nike in order to bring one former swoosh employee over to Yeezy. 

“I designed this thing, we call it the Foam Runner, and we built a factory for it in Cody and you can make these in 25 minutes. And what I’m saying about design, I was talking to one of the awesome designers we just got over at Yeezy. We’ve got this amazing crew. We’ve got guys that Nike sued us for, and one of these guys, I was trying to hire him for two years, he had to go surf for a year, and now he’s in,” says Kanye. “When he does his cad drawings, it’s like one shot one kill. Sometimes you design stuff and you have to re-do it five to eight times. His first one is so close to being ready for market because he sketches in a certain type of way,” added the Jesus Is King artist.

West went on to mention more about the shoe and how much it costs. The pair stands to be the most expensive Yeezy to date, and the artist hopes for it to be cheaper in the coming future. Ye said he hopes for the shoe to cost just $20 someday.

“So for me, I’m gonna make this shoe be $20,” said Kanye. “Money isn’t real, so the world should eventually be free.”

Presently Yeezys can cost up to $300 a pair, so a $20 pair would be a significant change in the sneaker industry in terms of demand and affordability.

Offset Disses Wiz Khalifa Due To Shady Cardi B Tweet

Wiz Khalifa  entertained a tweet that seemed to pit Cardi B against Nicki Minaj. The tweet read,

Cardi winning a Grammy when Nicki Minaj didn’t is the biggest proof that they don’t know a shit about music.”

to which he responded,

Most self made artists have this problem.”

Wiz who may just have been trying to offer the opinion of self-made artists not being able to easily win the Grammys is now being seen as an enemy as he was seen to side with the tweet that shaded Cardi. It was quite unclear why Wiz Khalifa seemed to side with that particular tweet yet he’s generally an unproblematic character in the rap game.

His response resulted in Cardi B firing back and Wiz Khalifa spent the next few minutes answering to Cardi B and the Bardigang. Offset even ended up getting involved and dissed the “Black and Yellow” hit-maker. 

Cardi B posted a screenshot of Wiz Khalifa in her DMs encouraging her and offering her advice back in 2016 and tweeted ,

 “This was Nikkas in my dms in 2016! They really support you when you grinding at the bottom then it’s a different story when you make it!”

Wiz Khalifa then responded to Cardi saying, “I still support u. Nothing’s changed. Your self made in my book as well.”

Offset then tweeted,” Niggas be hoes!!!! Smh.” He did not specify that the tweet was aimed at Wiz Khalifa but the tweet’s timing lines up with the timing of Cardi’s tweet.

Lil Baby seems to be taking extra security precautions. A new photo posted by Houston rap legend Bun B seems to be sparking some talk. The photo which is on Bun B’s Instagram,is of Bun M standing together with Lil Baby whose right hand is in his hoodie’s pocket. Lil Baby fans were quick to notice that he seems to be holding a pistol in the hand that’s in his hoodie’s pocket. 

With the shooting incidents in the hip-hop community increasing, it may not be a bad idea to walk with just a little extra protection. Some of these shooting incidents include shooting of Boosie Badazz and in worst cases death such as King Von and Mo3. It’s sad to see him walk around strapped just for protection regardless of him having security detail.
