In a new song, Kanye West blamed Chicago Bulls for ending Michael Jordan’s career.
At his Yeezus concert in Chicago’s United Center this week, Kanye West added in a special tribute to the NBA star, harping on his main point: “We should’ve never ever let Michael Jordan play for the Wizards.”
After retiring in 1999, Michael Jordan returned to the league a year later as part owner of the Washington Wizards – a team he’d suit up for in 2001.
“Why did that happen?” Kanye West chanted.
Kanye West blamed Chicago Bulls ownership for their decision.
“When a player that made the NBA wants to become an owner of the team that he brought so much glory to, a team he brought so much story to/a team that has his statue in the front of the m———ing building/But do you know what the owners of that team told MJ? You’re just a player, homeboy,” the rapper sang.
“I’m talking about one of the most important people in our civilization,” Kanye West concluded.
“And in order to make his point he had to put on a m———ing Wizards jersey.”
“Til I die, MJ represents the Bulls,” Kanye West finished.
