Kanye West kicked the dust off his Twitter account on Friday (April 13), which has been dormant since May 2017. The Chicago rapper only made one tweet and then deleted it.
Sneaker News was able to screenshot the tweet, which was Yeezy taking a jab at Nike for copying his popular chunky sneaker Yeezy Boost 700. Apparently, Nike is releasing a sneaker called the Air Monarch, which is look like the quintessential dad shoe. However, it does resemble West’s popular kicks for Adidas.
Although West deleted his shady post, he did retweet a fan’s tweet who welcomed him back to Twitter.
Meanwhile, West is planning to write a book on philosophy called Break the Simulation.
in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter Kanye talked about his successful run at Adidas:
"At Adidas, I have Yeezy, but it's a namesake brand. It's my nickname. We do these sneakers that sell out and we get, 'Oh, this is the number one brand on Women's Wear Daily. And I don't wish to be number one anymore, I wish to be water. I wish to be closer to UNICEF 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."
