Kanye West is known for calling out his competition, old friends and exes. But for his latest diss, Yeezy took on His Airness, Michael Jordan, in his song "Facts."
In the New Year's Day release, West touched on the basketball legend leaving Nike in 2013 to partner with Adidas. West rapped on the track, "Yeezy, Yeezy, Yeezy just jumped over the Jumpman," MTV quotes. Michael Jordan has not voiced his opinion on the track but his son, Marcus Jordan, let the world know via social media, the Jordans are not fazed, the publication reports.
Marcus tweeted, "Yeezy just jumped over @Jumpman23 ??" LOL I needed a good laugh to start my #2016."
Anyone who is a West fan or sneaker lover remembers West using the line, "Yeezy jumped over the Jumpman" in 2012's "New God Flow." The verse was celebrating West's shoe, Yeezy Boost, being named Shoe of the Year by Footwear News, Rolling Out magazine reports.
Looks like Marcus ignored the line in 2012 but this year let it known the Jordans are listening to -- and laughing at -- the self-proclaimed 2020 presidential candidate.
