words // Zac Dubasik

In a video just released by Sneaker Watch, Swizz Beatz revealed that he’s seen the upcoming adidas X Kanye West sneaker. This isn’t a major surprise, considering the two’s relationship through music, and the fact that adidas own the company Swizz reps, in Reebok.

When shown a picture of the adidas Tubular, rumored back in July to be a part of the collaboration, Swizz responded by saying, “Yeezy ain’t show me those!”

While he didn’t give any insights into what he did see, he had kind words for West, which should bode well for the prospects of the collaboration. “Kanye is a genius. He’s misunderstood. He’s a genius,” said Beatz. “Whatever creation Kanye that does, I respect it, because he put his passion into it, he put his time into it, he’s dedicated to it. He’s a one-of-one. He’s the architect, that’s misunderstood. He’s a designer, that people wish they could.”
