Kanye West is currently taking part in ShowStudio's "In Camera" live interview series and is dropping a ton of gems as expected. While breaking down his aspirations and the elements of the Yeezy Season collections, the discussion shifted towards sneakers and Kanye let loose this bomb about the polarizing adidas Yeezy Boost 350 model.
"They saw the 350s and acted like they didn't like them because they’re racist," he said.
Damn, 'Ye, tell 'em how you really feel. On the other hand, he summed up the hype for the Yeezys rather gracefully: "We sell shoes people want to line up for because we put love in them."
Later, he got charged up while comparing his designs to other sneakers on the shelves. "There’s a time when, you know, when Michelangelo... I'm sure there were people who were sculpting better than him. But he made David," he said. "Is there a time where [you] can go on the Internet and find a shoe that people want more than my shoes? Well go fuck yourself then if it isn't, and don't ask me no stupid shit like that again. With the love [laughs]."
"I designed that shoe, didn't I? I didn’t see somebody else's shoes getting lined up for." Shots fired?
