Kanye west's film debut "Runaway" Los Angeles Premiere - Arrivals

Kanye West ranted again, I lost count is this the fifth time this week? Kanye’s latest tiff was with his former shoe collaborator, Nike. During his “The Yeezus Tour” stop Wednesday night at the Bridgestone arena in Nashville, Tenn. he took on the sneaker giant…for a full 6 minutes. “Do you know who the head of Nike is?” West asked the audience. “No, well let me tell you who he is: His name is Mark Parker, and he just lost culture. Everyone at Nike, everyone at Nike, Mark Parker just let go of culture.”

He added, “I’m talking directly to you. No miscommunication. Did you not want the Yeezys? Nike would make you believe it was my fault that you couldn’t get them, but that was not the case. I wanted there to be as many Yeezys as there was LeBrons, and I wanted them to be at a good price, but that was not my choice, and we’re going to change everything. And … I’m going to create more than you think that any musician in the history of time ever could have.” Kanye has since moved on to Adidas who will give him royalties on his shoe sales.

If you have crossed Kanye West in any way be prepared to be slammed to ranted against maybe even before his tour ends. he would get more respect if he didn’t call himself a genius…right Nick Cannon. Nick took to Twitter to rant on Kanye. “I love @KanyeWest like a brother & been one of his biggest fans & friends since day 1, but Genius is eternal patience.@KanyeWest Real geniuses don’t have to tell everyone that they are a genius. Maybe I should’ve just called him and told him that in private. Oops, my bad! Twitter-stream-of-consciousness LOL. I just got online and saw all these @KanyeWest interviews and I was inspired to rant. Oh well, going back to Thanksgiving. We cookin’ son!”
