Kanye West Visits Radio Show with Kim K., Talks Romance and Confirms Adidas Deal


Kanye West visited Hot 97 on Monday (Nov. 25) for a sit-down interview with Angie Martinez as he discussed his love for fiancée, Kim Kardashian, his new role as a father and new business ventures.

During the interview, the rapper compared his relationship to an epic love romance and called his bride-to-be “the most beautiful woman” of all time. He also revealed that his courtship for Kim goes back further than most know by admitting that part of his song “Lost in the World,” from the 2010 album “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” was actually written as a love letter to  his future wife.

“I loved her from the first day I saw her, which I said on Bound, I don’t remember when that was,” Kanye said on the radio show.

Besides all of the mushy, fairy tale love talk, Kanye also talked business. He confirmed that he is no longer working with Nike because they refused to give him royalties for the sale of his Air Yeezy’s. He opted for a new deal with Adidas as he says the decision was inspired by his drive to financially provide for his daughter and family.

“I gotta get my money up to another level. ‘Cause it ain’t on Jay Z level. It ain’t on Diddy level yet…The old me without a daughter, might have taken the Nike deal ’cause I just love Nike so much. But the new me, with a daughter, takes the Adidas deal because I have royalties and I have to provide for my family.”

This family man is taking the necessary steps to support his family — and not just financially. “His face lights up when he  is with our daughter,” Kardashian gushed to Martinez. “He is the most amazing  dad ever. It’s really cute to see them together.”
