It turns out Kanye West is not a good boss.
Rolling Stone just did a big expose on what it was like to work for Kanye.
According to an exec at Yeezy-Adidas it was pure chaos.
"Nothing has ever compared to the amount of chaos, the amount of stress and [the amount of] anxiety you go through working for Yeezy,” an Adidas x Yeezy senior team member told Rolling Stone. Another person said “Everything he does is a giant mess of vacuuming up all of people’s time—just consuming their entire lives and then the output just gets left on the side of the road somewhere.”
According to multiple employees, working for Ye meant long work days, delayed payments, and the risk of getting reprimanded or fired for sins such as wearing the wrong color clothes.
One employee who worked at Yeezy Studios was fired for recommending they listen to Drake.
I thought, ‘Oh, he’s a rapper, I should probably mention some rap,’” the ex-staffer said before suggesting music from Drake. “Big mistake—the next day I was fired.”
Now that did happen in 2015 when the Drake-Kanye relationship was at its worst. So in that case he probably should have known better.
