Kanye West is nobody's "client."
It was reported yesterday that Kanye West had split with his manager Scooter Braun and, although the news had not officially been confirmed, Ye has spoken out about the issue. More outspoken than he has been in the past few years, Kanye has taken to Twitter to shake things up, showing off fresh new Yeezy designs, announcing surprising album drops and possibly hint at a 2024 presidential run. On top of that, the Graduation superstar has been fighting the "thought police," challenging people to form their own opinions about things. With his supposed allegiance to Donald Trump, he has also confirmed that he is not only splitting from Scooter Braun, he is entirely not working with a manager.
Letting out a couple of tweets this morning, Ye let everybody know that the rumors were indeed true, writing, "I no longer have a manager. I can't be managed." In true Kanye fashion, he offered a brief explanation as to why he made the decision to part ways from Scooter after he also left longtime manager Izzy Zivkovic last month. "I'm nobody's client,'" tweeted Pablo, clarifying his decision. With several albums being released in June, some believe that Kanye is simply acting out for promotion's sake while others are apparently worried about his mental health. While his decisions have seemed somewhat erratic, Kanye appears to be leading with love, as evidenced by his strange phone call to Ebro yesterday.
Kanye is likely at a point where he does not require a manager but, with a schedule as hectic as his, somebody managing his daily affairs could absolutely help. Check out the tweets below.
