On Wednesday night, Kanye West was awarded “Shoe of the Year” for his highly-touted and coveted Yeezy Boosts. The multi-platinum artist was in attendance to receive his award and delivered a momentous speech.
Kanye, who donned a black t-shirt and jeans, gracefully accepted his award and unleashed a bevy of quips to the amusement of the crowd.
“You’re thinking, where’s my suit jacket, but if my wife’s not here, no suit jacket.” He continued his jokes by offering a suggestion for those who aren’t fans of his diatribes.
“After the infamous Taylor Swift moment, I did a sort of self exile just to get away from paparazzi and have people not, you know, just f–king with me, really. And the first thing I did was I went to Japan and it was me and Virgil Abloh, who has the brand Off-White, and we just sat on a computer every day with this idea of designing,” he said. “We designed on the computer so much we started to joke, ‘Hey, did you wash my jpg?’ Because it never got past the computer screen.”
Kanye’s Yeezy’s has performed exceptionally well as they sold out each time out.
Congrats on Yeezy for his monumental feat. Please make sure to SHARE with your friends.
