kanye west leaves nike What Do You Think?: Kanye West Leaving Nike

An alluring discussion surrounding hip-hop and style icon Kanye West and the state of his partnership with athletic outfitter Nike has risen rather abruptly.

But as we’ve learned with all things Yeezy, there are no safe assumptions and we all remain stuck in a perpetual wait-and-see state until official information is revealed by Nike or Kanye West – an occurrence that has proven to be few and far between to say the least.
