Kanye West Returns To Twitter And Takes Shots At Nike

Kanye West has stopped his public rants or has he? On Friday (April 13), the fashion and rap star tweeted for the first time in months and used his rare appearance on the social media network to seemingly take a punch at Nike.

Responding to an announcement about the Just Do It brand dropping a reworked edition of their Monarch sneaker next month, the Adidas lifeline/affiliate appeared to accuse Nike of biting his swag. “Yeezy 700 Vibes,” he wrote in the post, implying Nike was biting the concept of his Yeezy Boost 700 shoe.

West eventually deleted the tweet but kept a retweet on Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey welcoming him back to Twitter. West has been abstaining from social media for the most part. In February, he returned to Instagram and posted a series of photos of powerful couples before deleting them. Also, West has been in the studio often producing almost every artist on his “G.O.O.D Music” label albums.

While it appears West still has some petty in him, he is trying to change his ways. During a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, he revealed he would rather help people than put all his efforts into a brand.

“I don’t wish to be number one anymore, I wish to be water,” he said. “I wish to be closer to [United Nation’s Children’s Fund] or something where I can take the information that I have and help as many people as possible, not to just shove it into a brand.”

He also revealed he will be coming out with a philosophy book titled Break the Simulation.
