‘Ye is only asking for his work to be respected’: $900M Worth Rapper Diddy Blasts Adidas, Gap For ‘Stealing’ Kanye West’s “Groundbreaking Innovations”

Rapper Kanye West has been very active on social media lately. The rapper used his Instagram to call out a lot of celebrities and even clothing brands like Adidas and Gap. He came after Adidas for making decisions surrounding his Yeezy shoe collection without his involvement and then Gap for allegedly copying his Yeezy and Balenciaga collection. Rapper Diddy and record producer Swizz Beatz are siding with Kanye West in his battle against Adidas as they spoke in support of the rapper. Kanye West, who is legally known as Ye, accused Adidas of leaving him out of meetings regarding his Yeezy brand and also stealing his designs.
