Kanye West's Yeezy Boost 350 was honored as the Shoe of the Year at the Footwear News 29th Annual Achievement Awards ceremony. The rapper gave a speech;
"I have absolutely no plans for what I’m going to say, so this could land completely wrong, but it doesn’t really fucking matter, does it? If you don’t like 10-minute profanity-ridden speeches that end with a presidential bid, you can go to the bathroom.”What do you think? Do you love the shoe?
“I want to fucking draw shoes, and it doesn’t matter if someone thinks that I’m supposed to be doing something that’s more important."
“As a creator, it doesn’t matter how big your house is, how big your name is, how much money you have, your job is to create while you’re here and if anyone is in the way of that, if anything gets in the way of that, you got to burn it to the fucking ground.”
“I’m trying to take a full ‘Will Ferrell drunk brother at the wedding’ vibe. Have I reached that level yet? Here’s to fucking everything up!”
