In case you haven't seen the clips and photos up and down your Twitter timelines yet today, Kanye West paid a visit to the Oval Office to have a meeting with President Donald Trump. Along with stating his position on Hillary Clinton's "I'm With Her" presidential campaign for the 2016 election and telling Trump that the MAGA hat made him feel like Superman (two very questionable statements to put it nicely), Ye obviously had to ramble about his successful Adidas Yeezy line too.
"You gave me the heart to go to Adidas," said West in reference to Trump. "When I went in, in 2015, [Adidas was] a $14 billion company losing $2 billion a year. Now, [Adidas has] a $38 billion market cap. It's called the Yeezy Effect."
West would go on to comment further about how he has made it a point to manufacture product in Middle American cities like his hometown of Chicago.
Adidas CEO Kasper Rorsted has also recently commented on the so-called "Yeezy Effect," and the availability of the Adidas Yeezy line going forward. This has been a concern for some following last month's massive restock of "Triple White" Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2s.
"We'll still be very scarce on certain models. But on some of the older models, we will bring more volume into it, Rorsted told CNBC's Sara Eisen. "But if you're looking for the innovation we are bringing in, we're not going to bring that out in volume. So it's still going to be hard to get a very new Yeezy shoe from Adidas."
