    Is it a registered trademark?

    If YES, then NO you can't use it.

    If NO, then maybe, you will need to carry out some further research.

    I doubt Kanye or Addidas won't have rights https://www.google.com/#q=''Yeezy''

    I think you can't use it as Adidas is using it and they must have brought right for it

    Search under " primary class " , those are types of products where the trademark is protected, Big companies usually register their trademarks under any available class out there, it's too expensive for small companies tough, so they do that only for class related to the original products they sell, if you find something like t-shirts, clothing or prints , than just avoid it .
