THE REAL STORY ABOUT HOW THE YEEZY BOOSTS LEAKED
You think you know, but you have no idea... this is the story of how the Yeezy Boosts leaked.
By now, you're all familiar with Kanye West's Adidas Yeezy 750 Boost, as the kicks have become one of the most sought after sneakers of the year. Prior to their release in February, the sneakers were leaked on instagram courtesy of IBN Jasper, the man who has been Kanye's personal barber since before 'The College Dropout.'
In a recent interview, Jasper explains how he became the person to deliver the first images of the Yeezy Boost, after receiving permission from Kanye himself.
“We were in the back of the car on the way to the Tidal release and Ye just casually told me to post a pic of the Boosts.”
“He had to have thought about the lift that posting the Boosts would give me,” Ibn insists. “He just encouraged me to post. The media wants to make him this monster. They never focus on his charity.”
Those six leaked images blew up all over the internet, creating even more hype around the shoe, and IBN Jasper walked away with nearly 30,000 new followers- which is all that really counts anymore.
