Kanye West BLASTS Adidas over 'fake Yeezys'

Kanye West blasted Adidas for 'blatant plagiarism' of his Yeezy slides after nearly a decade of collaboration.

Adidas first unveiled their new Adilette slides earlier this month, which will retail at $55, and the 45-year-old rapper is none too happy about it.

West took to Instagram on Monday afternoon, blasting the shoe company and CEO Kasper Rorstad for the slides, which he dubbed, 'fake Yeezys.'

'THIS IS YE driving down the same street Kobe passed on. Maybe I feel that Mamba spirit right now,' West began, possibly hinting his deal with Adidas is coming to an end.

Kobe Bryant had a six-year contract with Adidas before being picked out of high school in 1996, but he bought himself out of his Adidas contract in 2002.

After waiting a whole year as part of his opt-out clause, he signed a new deal with Nike in 2003, where he remained for the rest of his career.

West fired a direct shot at Rorstad, stating, 'To Kasper I’m not standing for this blatant copying no more.'

'To all sneaker culture To every ball player rapper or even if you work at the store This is for everyone who wants to express themselves but feel they can’t cause they’ll loose their contract or be called crazy,' he continued.

'Bravery is not being afraid. Bravery is overcoming your fear for your truth. This Ye with the blue paint on my face,' he added.
