Another day, another ‘Ye.
While much of his recent focus has been directed towards Nike and his termination of contracts with the company, Kanye West is flexin’ his claws at yet another brand he used to be faithful to: Louis Vuitton. Kanye worked with the brand in the past to create a limited line of sneakers, and now claims that the head of Louis wasn’t checking for him while he was in Paris.
Speaking on 92.3 NOW radio on one of his most recent radio tours, ‘Ye said:
“I was made for this moment. What happened was while I was out in Paris I wanted to meet with the head of Louis Vuitton, he said I don’t understand why we need to meet with you. I said, “let me explain to you why you need to meet with me.” Everybody in New York City right now don’t buy any Louis Vuitton until after January. Now do you want to meet with me? Now do you want to meet with me? Influence. They think that I don’t realize my power.”
Kanye, people are out here doing real things, trying to boycott luxury retailers for racial profiling and others are expected to stop shopping at LV for no reason outside of your influence? Hum. Ok.
The ‘Ye radio tour continued, as he went on to share more of his wisdom on Washington’s 95.5 WPGC station, arguing that the Kardashians are changing the way America views interracial relationships.
“A lot of what the Kardshians do, I don’t think they get enough credit for what they do; They prep America to accept interracial relationships. I’m not talking about me, I can hop on a plane. I can date a white woman, I can date a black woman, and no matter what they say in the barber shop don’t matter, because I don’t get my haircut there. For the people that do, though, there’s a white woman that’s getting talked down to by her friends because she’s dating a black guy. Now you’ve got a point of reference, that you can say, “Well, actually this couple right here, that’s dope.”‘
We’re going to have to bring Chloe in for the verdict on this one:
