As the reviews pour in, Kanye West’s latest album, The Life of Pablo, is a hit. Credit that to the Yeezys.

On his way to LAX yesterday (February 17), the G.O.O.D. Music rapper was met by X17 Online and asked several topics, including his recent admission about being $53 million in debt. Clarifying the message, he said, “I spent $53 million over the past 13 years chasing my dreams, and I just wanted to make sure all entrepreneurs in America knew that it's possible to go under and still make it out."

Going further, he plugged adidas and his Yeezy collection as the inspiration behind the sound of T.L.O.P. “The only company that ever supported me was Adidas. There wouldn’t have been an MSG show; and even like the album The Life of Pablo, it seems like people are really feeling the vibe of it and everything [and] it’s because I was able to make the Yeezys,” he shared.

“As a creative person, you got to have a bunch of creative outlets. I just appreciate Adidas for help me.”
