Following weeks of speculation, Kanye West has all but confirmed that he's signed to Adidas in a deal that looks set to move Yeezy from his long-standing partnership with Nike, where he released two versions of his Yeezy trainer.

He said he wanted to become the "Tupac of product", outlining his plans to become a billionaire. "I gotta turn up," he said. "I gotta get my money up to another level 'cause it ain't on Jay Z level, it ain't on Diddy level yet.”
Kanye is currently travelling across the US on his 'Yeezus' tour.
