By Sean Lynch

There’s been a lot of chatter this week about Kanye West reportedly parting ways with Nike. Those rumors only grew following a recent Yeezus tour stop at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center where West was quoted on stage making comments about Nike CEO Mark Parker. “They tried to make it as small as possible. Mark Parker even talked sh–, talking about, ’We don’t even know why people like the Yeezys.’”

West may have also indirectly confirmed his departure from the company. “You see me in interviews [talking about] how I want to do clothes,” shouted West. “I want to let you know I signed my deal a week and a half ago.”
