Who is Yeezy Busta?
Yeezy Busta is a sneakerhead and "Yeezy expert". He values the concept of being a real person and wearing real products. Aside from his internet fame, he was a full time medical student before dropping out in 2017.
Here are what some of the top publications in the sneaker world and others have said about the YB:
"Since their release in 2015, Yeezy Boosts are easily the most coveted sneaker on the internet. They're almost impossible to buy in store and come with a hefty price tag (upwards of $1,000) when resold. Meaning if you see them on anyone's feet they're likely fake.
Because they're so in demand, fake Yeezys can be almost indistinguishable from the real thing for most people—but for Yeezy Busta, that's not the case. With over 500,000 Instagram followers [and growing], the anonymous expert can spot a real Yeezy within seconds. Calling out celebrities from rappers to YouTubers on their fake Yeezys, Yeezy Busta teaches his loyal following all about how to spot a fake."

"When it comes to bootleg shoes, they’ve morphed from Air Jordans with Spongebob on them to near-identical Adidas Yeezy Boosts that can even fool discerning sneaker enthusiasts. Except for Yeezy Busta, a 19-year-old medical student from Los Angeles who runs an Instagram account that calls out celebrities and regular people.
Yeezy Busta, who prefers to keep his identity hidden due to legal ramifications and to preserve his privacy, first fell in love with Kanye West’s sneakers when Kanye wore them in Keri Hilson’s “Knock You Down” music video. He’s since garnered a social media following of nearly k Instagram followers and is viewed as a bona fide expert on whether a pair of Yeezys is real or fake. As expected, his account has become controversial, as he calls out people publicly for wearing bootleg sneakers, which has caused him to make friends and enemies along the way."
