If there is one man who perfectly fits the title of a Mr. all-rounder, it is Kanye West. He is widely regarded as one of the greatest and most influential hip hop musicians of all time. In addition to being a rapper, West is also a record producer and a creative fashion designer. His sneaker line Yeezy, in collaboration with Adidas, is very popular and has a worldwide fan base for them. Previously, in an interview, Jimmy Kimmel revealed how Kanye’s amazing heartfelt gesture had him scared for his life.
What did Kanye West do that made Jimmy Kimmel feel unsafe?
In 2018, Kanye West appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live and spoke about his latest album, his daughter, and what motivates him. However, at the start of the interview, Jimmy Kimmel revealed that Kanye gifted him a pair of Yeezys a few years back. The talk show host also narrated a hilarious incident that scared him after he stepped out wearing Yeezys.
Kimmel said, “I have never in my life had more people come up and talk to me than when I was around in them to the point where I was like this is crazy. I gotta get these off; people are chasing me.” The television host was worried people might come and beat him up and take away his Yeezys.
Later in the interview, Kimmel asked Kanye about what he found more rewarding; people waiting for days in line for his shoes or people appreciating his music. The 21-time Grammy winner revealed he found them both equally rewarding. The singer also talked about his political views and addressed various other critical issues, such as mental health, being bipolar, etc.
