On New Year's Eve, Kanye West dropped his first new track in months, "Facts." Besides dissing Bill Cosby and confirming his 2020 presidential run, Kanye also aimed his words at Michael Jordan and, more specifically, the Air Jordan versus the Air Yeezy.
If you recall, Kanye left Nike in 2013 to partner with Adidas. And on the track, Kanye referenced it, saying, "Yeezy, Yeezy, Yeezy just jumped over Jumpman," on the hook. Although Michael Jordan hasn't released a statement, his son Marcus Jordan jumped into the fray with his own emoji-filled tweet laughing the whole thing off.
Later, Marcus added a laughing Michael Jordan GIF for an extra touch.
Although we're not taking sides, the Air Jordan is a certifiable classic and one of the most iconic shoes ever. Thirty years in the business trumps...pretty much anything else, even Yeezy himself.
