Earlier this year, Team Adidas member Kanye West took a shot at Nike in the Tyler The Creator collabo ‘Smuckers’ when he said,
Why, oh why, why, why don’t they like me?
Cause Nike gave a lot of niggas checks
But I’m the only nigga to ever check Nike
On New Year’s Eve, Kanye took a few more shots at Nike when he dropped his new track ‘Facts.’
Yeezy Yeezy Yeezy just jumped over Jumpman
Here’s a few lines from the song including a sure to be controversial line about LeBron.
Nike Nike treat employees just like slaves
Gave LeBron a billi’ not to run away
I was out here spazzin’, all y’all get the message?
On the field I’m over reckless, on my Odell Beckham
If Nike ain’t have Drizzy man they wouldn’t have nothing
I ain’t dropped an album but the shoes went platinum.
West also gave a shout out to James Harden and Nick Young in the song with a line that Jordan Clarkson said Young went crazy about.
Tell Adidas that we need a million in production
I done told y’all, all I needed was the infrastructure
Now we hottest in the streets, it ain’t no discussion
James Harden, Swaggy P runnin’ up the budget
“I can hear Nick rapping that line through all shoot around tomorrow and during the game he losing his mind right now lol.” said Clarkson via Twitter.
