What Did Dennis Rodman Say in His Video Message to Kanye West?

Apparently, Kanye West has an admirer in NBA icon Dennis Rodman. In a tweet on Tuesday, the rapper shared a friendly video message that he recently received from the Chicago Bulls legend.

In the video, Rodman compliments West on all the security he was able to procure the last time the two ran into each other in West's hometown of Chicago. "Hey Kanye, what's up, brother? D-Rod here, man. What's happening brother? Last time I saw you in Chicago, man, the hotel-all security, high profile, styling, baby," he said.

The Worm also praised West for his sneaker collaborations with Adidas and asked the rapper to hook him up with some sneakers, seemingly citing both of their connections to the Windy City. "I love what you're doing with Adidas, man. Keep it up, brother. Send me some shoes some time. What the f**k, man? Chicago boys, what's up?"

Rodman wrapped up his message by saying that the two should connect and hang out. He also wished the rapper a belated "Happy Birthday." (West's birthday was on June 8.) "Anyway, man, let's get together sometime, Chicago, L.A., wherever you're at—London. Gimme a call, man. Send me a video, man. Let me know, man. By the way, happy birthday, brother. You deserve it, man. Happy birthday, baby," he said.

West seemed to appreciate the praises from the former NBA star and one of the supporting players in ESPN's The Last Dance docu-series. The rapper called Rodman a personal hero. "Blessings from one of my heroes, The incredible alien level Dennis Rodman," he wrote in the tweet.

Other celebrities have reached out to West recently and spent time with the rapper, most notably Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk. On July 1, the rapper shared a photo of him and Musk posing together—this was just a few days before West announced his 2020 presidential run. When West announced that he's making a run at the Oval Office, Musk chimed in, offering his full support. Although, following West's recent and controversial Forbes interview, Musk said the two may not actually have as much in common as he'd thought. "We may have more differences of opinion than I anticipated," Musk wrote in a since deleted tweet.

Still, Musk told Page Six on Monday that he continues to support the rapper in his run for president. He did suggest, though, that West should possibly wait until the next election cycle. "Kanye explained afterward some of the reasoning behind why he said what he said. It makes more sense than many people, including me, realized," he said. "I have not dropped my support for Kanye, although I think 2024 would be better than 2020."
