Kanye West says that he is going to bring the prices of Yeezy Season 3 down, like a real friend. West has long promised that his line would be affordable and everyone would be able to get Yeezys. However, all we've received so far are price tags in the thousands and sold out notifications.

A TMZ cameraman, who is clearly dealing with the same issues, approached the rapper/designer at LAX and aired out his grievances with the sky-high prices of Yeezy Season 1. "We're gonna get them lower, we're gonna get them lower," West tells him. "Next season."

Outrageous Yeezy Season 1 prices were met with a barrage of memes across social media, but it didn't prevent the line from mostly selling out at retailers.

The cameraman also asked Kanye whether or not he'd sign with Nike if it offered him a billion dollars. "That's a good question," Kanye said before turning down the hypothetical offer. "It's not about the money, it's about the respect."
