Kanye West: we have to make Middle America strong

Kanye West on Adidas: "It’s called the Yeezy effect. I went to Casper, we had a meeting in Chicago. I said, you have to bring manufacturing onshore. Not even shore, into the core. It’s not about the borders,

the core of Adidas and Chicago is the core of Middle America and we have to make Middle America strong. So I had the balls. Because I had the balls to put on this hat, this Adidas thing made me a billionaire. I could have lost 200 million dollars walking away from that deal. But I knew it was more important for me to take the chance of walking away from that deal than to have no fathers in Chicago with no homes and when we do have prison reformation - and it’s habilitation, not rehabilitation, - because we had no abilities in the first place, cause we didn’t have anyone to teach us… it’s more important than any specific deal, anything, that we bring jobs into America and that we provide a transition with mental health and the American education curriculum that Jim has worked on, Larry Hoover also has a curriculum he has worked on."
