Shoutout to Derrick Rose, man that n*gga nice! – Kanye West
As fellow Chicago legends, Kanye West and Derrick Rose share a mutual sense of accomplishment for their city. For Kanye, he has amassed massive amounts of fame, awards, and wealth. For Derrick Rose, he was a consistent example of basketball excellence, as the youngest to win NBA MVP on the Chicago Bulls. Kanye West has always shown his appreciation for Derrick Rose, even shouting him out in the song, “Don’t Like,” as seen above. Now, it seems that Kanye West has designed Derrick Rose’s newest shoe with Adidas.
In a tweet from yesterday, Kanye West shared a picture that he captioned “YZY D Rose.” Given that D Rose is Derrick Rose’s nickname and shoe collection name, it is likely that this shoe was designed for Derrick Rose. Furthermore, Derrick Rose’s girlfriend, Alaina Anderson, posted photos and a video of her wearing the shoes.
In the video, Alaina is walking around in the shoes, with Derrick Rose talking in the background. Thus, it seems pretty clear that Kanye West has officially designed a sneaker for Derrick Rose. The only question is, when will it be released?
