Kanye West has finally done it, he’s now thrown down the shoe gauntlet and declared that he is the king of the kicks.
Kanye has been on a Trump-level tweet storm Tuesday morning, sending out a non-stop slew of thoughts and proclamations.
Among them, he claims that Yeezy will hit a billion dollars in 2018, and that it is the “2nd fastest growing company in history.”
Kanye then said, “I am currently the single highest paid person in footwear. That means I make more money on shoes than Michael Jordan.”
According to Forbes, Jordan raked in over $100 million from Nike in 2017. Kanye was reportedly paid $10 million for his initial collaboration with Adidas in 2016, but it’s unclear how much additional compensation he’s received.
