The enigmatic persona of Kanye West and his penchant for controversies have long been familiar to us. While these controversies may not have worked in his favor, the revered rapper never shies away from being entangled in them. One such notable entanglement was the Adidas-West feud. Prior to the emergence of his regrettable anti-Semitic remarks, Adidas made the decision to discontinue the production of the esteemed Yeezy line.

It appears that the illustrious rapper possesses the ability to bear the weight of his brand single-handedly. Following the establishment of his new headquarters in the city of Los Angeles, West has introduced a contentious addition for carrying out major decisions for the brand and it is controversial.
