Kanye West keeps his kids in mind when making business decisions.
In the photo’s caption, the Yeezy founder hugged his four children — sons Psalm, 3, and Saint, 6, and daughters Chicago, 4, and North, 9 — West explained that he stayed The legacy to his children inspired his career decisions.
“Some things are more important than money,” he wrote. “My kids don’t know what Dad has been through the past few days alone to make sure the brand will be passed on to them someday, God willing.”
“These future leaders will never back down, be stolen, or be forced to compromise who they are,” he concluded.
West shares his four children with ex-wife Kim Kardashian.
The comments came after West’s Instagram called out Adidas executives, accusing them of stealing his ideas and keeping him out of key meetings about products and plans.
West also took to social media to attack Adidas senior vice president Daniel Cherry III and other members of JPMorgan and Adidas’ executive committee, according to Highsnobiety.
During West’s feud with Adidas, some of his famous friends — including TI, Swizz Beatz and Diddy — have rallied around him to show their support, even boycotting the athletic brand. West, in particular, was supported by other black celebrities who specifically called for the brand to use West to advance its own agenda, rather than giving credit where it was due.
Adidas has yet to publicly acknowledge its feud with West. West, however, posted on social media this week that Adidas “doesn’t want to smoke anymore.” In the now-disappeared post, West promised that the Gap he had worked with would be on his list.
Earlier this summer, Kardashian shared a sketch of her eldest daughter’s Yeezy design in a series of photos posted to her Instagram Story, suggesting that at least one of their children must be interested in the fashion family business.
In one photo, North can be seen holding up her completed sketch on a piece of blue paper, wearing sunglasses that look like braids sticking out of the character’s mouth.
In a separate photo shared with the 41-year-old SKIMs founder’s story, a second sketch by North shows an alien-like figure, although the imaginative drawing is in every corner of the figure’s head. There are three braids on the sides, and what looks like a snake-shaped tongue coming out of the mouth.
