Nike has filed a lawsuit against Lil Nas X after falsely claiming the shoe company had teamed up with the rapper to release a shoe with a sole that contained human blood.

The Lil Nas X’ Satan shoes immediately drew public outcry while others called for the rapper to be canceled.

The sneakers are a hybrid of Nike’s Air Max 97s — that has a pentagram pendant and a scripture verse Luke 10:18, that refers to satan’s fall from heaven.

MSCHF, the company behind sneaker said the shoe contained a drop of human blood inside the sole.

All 666 pairs of the modified Nikes, priced at $1,018, sold out. Nike filed the suit, yet Lil Nas X was not named as a defendant.

Look out for Stockholm-based artist Amanda Cygnaeus aka CY and the new track Next To Yours. I love it. Think indie-pop mixed with alt 90’s guitars – Phoebe Bridgers and girl in red.

CY shares: “I wrote it after my first real heartbreak, back when me and my ex-girlfriend broke up. I have a tendency to either romanticize the past or worry about the future, so this was a way of reminding myself of what the relationship was really like and the fact that she ditched me. Kind of “how dare you?” but at the same time feeling okay cause you know that you just weren’t right for each other. I had built up those emotions for a while, so the song literally flew out of me.”

Give it a stream on KOAR’s Indie Invaders Playlist.
