Everyone gives their take on a solid Grammy show, what we liked/disliked, favorite performances and speeches. Everything is great until DG questions Beyonce and the hype around her performance, which sparks defense from Emma as a loyal member of the #BeyHive.

Things then lead into the Yeezy Season 5 fashion show, as Emma helps break down the looks and trends from Kanye’s newest creations. Dan once again channels his inner Skip Bayless, questioning West’s genius as a fashion designer. LordTreeSap quickly comes to the defense of his hero, putting DG in his place.

DG Editor Note: Let it be clear that I like Beyonce and I like Kanye West. Not trying to go up against any armies. For Beyonce, it came down to I didn’t like the song choices and the performance wasn’t for me. Still respect her a lot. For Kanye West, it was more of a gripe against what he put out in the show. I get how fashion shows are supposed to make statements and it’s not necessarily represents what the designer is going to retail. That being said, I took the stance of the little guy. There are probably so many no name designers trying to make it and if their show consisted of what Kanye put out, they’d be laughed out of the building and it wouldn’t be considered creative. It just didn’t impress me, that’s all. Kanye is still a risk taker and a musical genius. He has definitely studied up on his fashion. I’m also sure he could care less about my opinion so there’s that.

Adidas first launch of a Kanye West product came in February of 2015 with the Yeezy 750 Boost. The relationship has been a very successful one over the first two years as every release of the 350 (low top) Boost and 750 Boost sneaker has sold out through the Adidas app within minutes. They have released an array of colorways that fans have struggled to get their hands on. The Chicago native has promised that the sneakers will be more accessible and affordable in the past. Let’s hope this is the first step in the right direction toward that goal. No person should have to pay $1,500 for a pair of sneakers since they are sold out.

Mr. West continues to make history in the fashion world, after selling out MSG for his Yeezy Season 3 premiere. The new Adidas deal marks the biggest between an apparel brand and a non-athlete. Kanye’s influence is only growing and rivaled by nobody in the industry. Anything Kanye touches seems to turn to gold. This new deal will allow him to seize the control that he needs to make his vision come to fruition.
