Kanye West Promises Fan Yeezy Boosts In Exchange For Nikes, Defends Last Night's Grammy Comments

Posted by , Feb 9, 2015 at 11:51am

After landing in NYC this morning, Kanye calls out a fan for his archaic Nike kicks and follows up on last night's controversial Grammy comments.


As Kanye West, Kim, and baby North walk out of the arrivals exit at JFK airport this morning, 'Ye is ready for the paparazzi that's eager to get the scoop on his post-Grammy theatrics. 

Before any reporters can reach him, Kanye sees a fan sporting red Nike Command Forces, and he's not impressed. He approaches the fan, proceeds to point to the shoes on his own feet, the adidas Yeezy 750 Boosts, and asks, "If I could give you to these right now, would you throw these in the trash right away?" Unsurprisingly, the fan consents. While he doesn't take off his shoes, it appears 'Ye's security guard takes down the fan's info., presumably to send him the replacement kicks.

Then the questions--first, on his unwavering defense of Beyonce's deserved AOTY. 'Ye sticks to his guns, saying, "Beck know that Beyonce shoulda won, you know that." He goes on: "I love Beck. But he ain't have Album of the Year." He then lampoons a reporter for merely asking him if he was considering "venturing into the fashion industry." Rightly so.

As he takes Nori out of the stroller and straps her into the car seat, we hear: "Kanye, you probably got one of the cutest kids in the world, brother."

Last words: "One of?!"

The man is an entertainer.
