So hopefully by now you’ve heard about Kanye West signing a deal with Adidas and leaving Nike. It’s actually very official now that Adidas has released a statement about the partnership. Here you go…
“For 2014, we welcome to the adidas family one of the most influential cultural icons of this generation, Kanye West. Well known for breaking boundaries across music, film and design and partnering with our history in street wear culture and leading innovations in sport, we look forward to creating a new chapter. Details to follow.”
Even though this is a fan made documentary, it’s still a pretty damn good one and has been making the rounds online today. It even landed on the front page of Complex earlier.
“My first intention was to make like a 10 minute video with Kanye quotes and such, but I had so much material so I decided to make it a tad longer. The closest I could get to a real documentary. (We really need one in all honesty).My goal was to capture something from every solo album, and the video is basically chronological. Starting with CD and ending with MBDTF.I entitled it Where The Lonely Kids Go When The Bell Rings (I know that’s not the actual line in Eyes Closed), because I feel like that sums up Kanye’s career – The outsider. The misunderstood genius.Let me know when it’s taken down (I’ll try to re-up), and let me know what you think of it!This took me 5000 hours to make so please be kind. And the sound/video is bad in some parts.The sound is out of sync after a while (yeah it sucks, but nothing I can do about it) – But, apparently if you DOWNLOAD the original source file from Vimeo, the audio is synced..I hope you enjoy it anyway.”
Now this is just ridiculous. We already know what happened when the Concords came out (kids got killed for kicks) and now the intensity for some sneaks just went up another level. The footage below is of people in Los Angeles already lining up to get their pair of Air Yeezy 2′s which come out on the 13th. Remember “Rich is not what you have, it’s who you have beside you.”
