Kanye West has expressed his gratitude to Snoop Dogg after the rapper showed him support in his nasty fight with Adidas.

It comes after West accused the global brand of creative "rape" as they dolled out a new "steel grey" shade of Yeezy Boost without the rapper's consent.

West disclosed that Adidas is selling "fake Yeezys" and also suing him for $250 million in addition to not paying him for the new release. He claimed the brand was using muddled language and legal loopholes to score one over him.

The "Donda" rapper slammed the company for promoting a new "steel grey" color of Yeezy boost, claiming he doesn't know anything about it. In a video trending online, West went on a rant explaining that they're using legal loopholes to take advantage of him.

"Let me explain really clear to you guys what's happening with Adidas," he said in the clip. "Not only are they putting out fake colorways that are not approved, they are suing me for $250 million, and they are also not paying me for these shoes that they are putting out, that have my name on it. And they are using contract clauses and 50 years of business experience to rape an artist. One of y'all favorite artists, right in front of y'all in broad daylight."
