NEWS: Kanye West talks to Angie Martinez on Leaving Nike and Signing Adidas Deal

Kanye West sits down with Hot 97's Angie Martinez to speak on a range of topics, including leaving Nike for a more lucrative deal with Adidas.

“The old me, without a daughter, would have taken the Nike deal because I just love Nikes so much. But the new me, with a daughter, takes the Adidas deal because I have royalties and I have to provide for my family.”

Though it seems a lot of people are shocked by this announcement, I actually don't know what took him so long. Mr West has spoken several times about his difficulties with Nike's CEO Mark Parker as well as the fashion industry heavyweights Hedi Slimane, Bernard Arnault and Francois Pinault.
