Creighton will stop playing Kanye West (yeah) songs at athletic events | Biden News


Rapper Ye, formerly Kayne West, will no longer play songs at Creighton University Blues athletic events, the university said Tuesday.

The decision follows the rapper’s suspension from Twitter and Instagram for anti-Semitic posts.

“Creighton continually reviews matters to ensure a respectful campus environment and a positive fan experience. We will not be playing Kanye West songs at our athletic events,” a Creighton spokesperson told The World-Herald.

The Bluejays previously used Ye’s song “Power” as their opening song for athletic events, including men’s basketball.

The breakup follows earlier news that Adidas ended its partnership with the rapper, causing Ye to drop from billionaire status, according to a Forbes report. Adidas said the decision is expected to hit its net income by up to 250 million euros ($246 million) this year.
