Raise your hand if you only want Kanye West to make music and NOT Tweet. (We wish we had more than two hands!) Recently the rapper has been saying a lot of outlandish things in promotion of his new album…
Swish, Waves now titled, “T.L.O.P”
Kanye’s stream of consciousness has been all over the place today. He went from showing off pieces from his new clothing collection, then he said his sister-in-law Kylie won’t be signing to Puma and now he’s proclaiming, “BILL COSBY INNOCENT”.
As fast as we can type, Kanye just tweeted a screen shot of a text convo he’s having with a woman named “Tracy” where they’re discussing his upcoming fashion presentation at Madison Square Garden. Kanye asked her to invite Michael Jordan but according to the text, the basketball legend who we all know as the face of the Nike/Jordan brand, declined.
Kanye famously severed ties with Nike after the brand refused to give him royalties for his “Yeezy” sneakers. He then signed a $10 million deal with Adidas.
Sorry Kanye, you can’t win ’em all! We bet Jordan is a fan of your music but when it comes to business, you probably couldn’t pay MJ to step foot in an Adidas show.
Now back to this Cosby tweet…sigh. We need Jay-Z to pull him aside and remind him that legends don’t need to do so much talking, or tweeting! Maintain an air of mystery and let the music speak for it’s self.
