The 43-year-old entertainer made the claim via Twitter on Friday, just a day after he was temporarily banned from the platform for posting a journalist’s phone number. Ye told his followers he would bring Adidas, which he has worked with since 2013, and Puma “back together”; the same way, he intended to restore his relationship with Jay-Z.
Kanye then slammed Puma for its “embarrassingly trash” designs, but reassured everyone he would “make everything ok.”
“I am the head of adidas … I will bring adidas and puma back together and bring me and jay back together,” he wrote. “… all pumas designs are embarrassingly trash but I will personally design puma and adidas and make everything ok.”
“Cole living in his head rent free at this point,” Hamad wrote on BRKicks’ Instagram.
It’s also worth noting that Jay has worked with Puma over the last several years, and played a large role in relaunching the brand’s basketball division.
The multihyphenate didn’t specify why an apology was necessary, but he later deleted the tweet and proposed he, Cole, and Drake get together because “it’s time to get free.” Kanye was referencing his recent criticism of the music industry, which he described as a “modern day slave ship.”
