Kanye West has split from his long-time manager Scooter Braun.
The “Good Life” rapper is believed to have cut ties with the 36-year-old talent agent reportedly in order to “leave the traditional music business”; however, the decision has not sat well with Braun, who has accused the hip-hop star of being disloyal.
Braun, who also works for the likes of Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande, confirmed on Twitter, “A man’s loyalty is truly tested when he is willing to stand by someone who will never show that same respect.
“Don’t show that same love and loyalty waiting for reciprocation .. do it because your integrity demands it. (sic)”
However, sources have told Billboard that “the two men’s companies will continue to work together” on other projects.
West is reportedly also planning on having his whole Yeezy brand, which includes the fashion and lifestyle range, “in-house.”
According to the Blast, West is said to have asked Braun to work with him exclusivelyBraun however, Braun turned the offer down because he is committed to his roster of artists.
It’s a busy time for West as he’s just revealed he’s “hand-producing” five albums, including his own record, a collaborative Kid Cudi LP as new do Kids See Ghosts and rapper Nas’ next effort, which are all set for release in June.
The departure of Braun comes after West is believed to have parted ways with another long-time manager.
Izvor ‘Izzy’ Zivkovic, who started working with the rapper on his 2010 album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, co-managed the”‘All Day” hitmaker with Braun.
Neither, West, who is represented CCA, or a representative for Zivkovic commented on why they’d gone separate ways.
