Kanye Finally Apologizes To Nike
Kanye is currently on his Saint Pablo tour in support of his latest album The Life of Pablo. During his set, he took some time to address Nike’s CEO, Mark Parker. Yeezy, who’d been previously bashing Parker, was a lot more polite and apologetic this time around. Kanye was in a notorious feud with the sneaker juggernaut, whom he felt wouldn’t give him the creative control necessary to build the shoes that he wanted.
If you’re locked into social media tonight, you’ve probably come across videos and images from opening night of Kanye West’s Saint Pablo Tour in Indianapolis. The rapper is running through a loaded set list while performing in the middle of the arena on a floating stage, which seems to be what everyone is talking about tonight. However, it wouldn’t be a Kanye show without some sort of sneaker discussion, and that holds true tonight.
During a break, West took a moment out to speak on his former collaborators at Nike — namely CEO Mark Parker, who was on the receiving end of harsh words from West during his last tour. Perhaps above the feud now that he’s been validated by his success at adidas, West spoke with grateful tone this time around.
This could finally mark the end of West taking shots at Parker and the Swoosh, but we know better than to make that assumption.
Kanye might actually be growing up. But like they said, we’ll see what happens in the future.
