Kanye Says Adidas Is Set To Produce A Million Pairs Of Boosts In 2016

The West-Kardashian clan certainly knows how to command the internet’s attention. A few short days after Kim announced via Twitter that she had paid off Kanye’s massive $53 million debt – and broke the web with her NSFW Instagram post – Ye took to Twitter and announced that Adidas was set to produce one million pairs of Yeezy Boosts in 2016. This is welcomed news for those anxious to get their hands on the coveted sneakers. The move would make sense, considering that upon their initial release last year — and subsequent drops — the sneakers have sold out in mere minutes; however, the production run was dramatically lower than one million. In fact, the last Moonrock drop was around 80,000 units.

The lack of availability has had mixed responses from sneaker heads, and driven up prices online, which have surpassed $1200 dollars on many online marketplaces. This enormous ramp-up in production could help more fans get their feet into Boosts this year.

2016 has been fruitful thus far for Kanye, with TLOP enjoying a positive reception from fans, Season 3 selling out Madison Square Garden in ten minutes and streaming around the world, and the birth — and grand reveal — of his son, Saint. This announcement, which has yet to be confirmed by Adidas, comes fresh on the heels of the news that TLOP physical copies would be available within a few weeks.

We’ll have to wait for official confirmation, as Kanye’s Twitter has been known be a mix of both informative truths and ranty pie-in-the-sky rhetoric. Perhaps in 2016, though, Yeezy will definitively “jump over Jumpman.”

They say that it’s great to have friends in high places, and that couldn’t be further from the truth. A friend of mine, who happens to be in radio, invited me out to a private event held at the Marquee in NYC on Tuesday, July 18th. Little did I know that my evening would be spent amongst big names like Mr. Kevin Liles, Tee Grizzley, London on da Track, Busta Rhymes, Phresher, Grafh, LouGotCash, Smack White, and more– in celebration of the launch of the Freestyle 50 Challenge Part II.

Kevin Liles, whom is a media guru, co-founder of 300 Entertainment, and has served as head-honcho of various other entities, is back with part II of the #Freestyle50Challenge– looking for another star. Now let me remind you of who 300 Ent. houses–Fetty Wap, Young Thug, Migos, Eric Bellinger, Tee Grizzley, Frank Ocean, and Shy Glizzy to say the least; who would miss an opportunity like this? Here’s the irresistible part about the Freestyle 50 challenge… rappers have to upload a video of them spitting the hottest bars over Tee Grizzley’s ‘No Effort’ in hopes for $10,000, singles deal with 300 Ent., and a track made by the one and only, London on da Track. Once again I’ll say, WHO WOULD MISS OUT ON AN OPPORTUNITY LIKE THIS? Submissions will be viewed by Kevin Liles and his team through Instagram and Twitter (technology changes everything, no excuses!) Make sure to use the tags #Freestly50challenge, @verizon, and @300ent to get noticed. Hopefully, if your freestyle is hot enough, you’ll be the next big thing on 300, and on your way to stardom.
