Kanye West Apologizes To Nike CEO Mark Parker

Kanye West Apologizes To Nike CEO Mark Parker

When Kanye speaks, everyone listens. His power to attract crowds may not validate his rhetoric, specifically his controversial comments on TMZ that have caused quite the uproar, but there’s a plethora of key dialogue in his nearly two-hour interview with Charlamagne Tha God that may help you understand the science behind one of the most creative individuals of our generation. Beginning around the 46-minute mark, Kanye West discusses his partnership with Nike and the difficulties and challenge he had with the brand’s unwillingness to change. However, he does go on to directly apologize to Mark Parker for “speaking ill on his name and his company”, and goes on to thank the Nike chairman, president, and CEO for giving him the opportunity in the first place; he states that this repentance stems from the growth that comes with being a father. Kanye further recalls a story of being on a private jet with Mark Parker, Tinker Hatfield, and Don C, calling this foursome the “original squad” that created the Nike Air Yeezy 1.
