Kanye West has been spotted in PDX this week. Somehow, someway the folks at Adidas managed to keep an early morning concert by Mr. West quiet without hardly anyone noticing. The secret Kanye show happened in North Portland today then West was spotted at a Han Oak in the city later in the evening.

There was very little knowledge of what West was doing in town, then vague details started to slowly leak out suggesting that Yeezus would be performing some kind of private show at Adidas Headquarters. Yes, the same Adidas Headquarters in Portland, off of North Greely Street. The below video was posted a day ago from John Wexler, Adidas’ Vice President of Global Entertainment and Influencer Marketing. Knowing his audience, like a good performer should, West improvises a shout out to Adidas during “Jesus Walks.”

After Wex posted his video, more started to make their way to the glorious internet. When asked about the performance, execs for Adidas did not respond to comment. Kanye has also been angling and campaigning to be Creative Director of Adidas. We wonder if this special visit and performance all but locked up that job for West.
