During the chat, West slammed Zappos’ chief exec, Tony Hsieh. “I got into this giant argument with the head of Zappos that he’s trying to tell me what I need to focus on,” West said. “Meanwhile, he sells all this [expletive] product to everybody, his whole thing is based off of selling [expletive] product.” Zappos, long known for its humorous and successful approach to social media, on Thursday tweeted about a new product, tailored to West’s rather specific expectations.

The doting dad was seen keeping a particularly close eye on the steps in front of him as he carefully made his way out of the bus behind his fiancee, carrying their baby protectively in the covered bassinet. And the proud-papa look certainly suited the rapper, who is currently on the New York leg of his insanely successful and critically acclaimed Yeezus tour. Here come the happy parental units: The famous pair headed out of a restaurant with their little one Happy man: Kanye cracked a smile for their adoring fans as they were greeted outside You take them: The rapper watched as his reality star wife made small talk with the happy onlookers Earlier in the day, Kim was spotted yet again in those particularly high heels despite the fact she had quite a task to navigate Manhattan’s less than stroller friendly streets with her precious cargo.
