Kanye West apologized to Michael Jordan for ‘Facts’

SHARE Kanye West apologized to Michael Jordan for ‘Facts’

Kanye West released “Facts” just over a month ago, but it appears the Chicago native is already feeling some remorse over the Nike diss track.

Tuesday, West apologized to Michael Jordan for the song, which includes the hook, “Yeezy, Yeezy, Yeezy just jumped over Jumpman,” a clear dig at Jordan’s Nike brand.

Parker, the Chief Executive Officer at Nike, became West’s target after the rapper left the brand in 2013 looking for more freedom with his fashion line. He then signed a $10 million deal with rival Adidas.

Jordan’s son, Marcus, laughed off the jab in a series of tweets last month.

West further extended the olive branch minutes later when he commended Nike on its new LeBron James shoe design:

“Facts” includes the line “Nike treats employees just like slaves / Gave LeBron a billi’ not to run away.”
