Outspoken rapper/producer Kanye West has reportedly hired to Justin Bieber star maker Scooter Braun to manage his increasingly outrageous career. Sources close to Braun told TMZ that Yeezus has considered Scooter a confidant for a long time, and that the plan is to take that one step further by putting him in charge of his music and fashion empire. Word is, that scooter is currently focused on organizing Kanye’s expanding staff.
It is important to note that Braun was rumored to be taking on his management in the past, but West out right denied that report, saying, “that just ain’t true. No formal management agreement has been laid out.” If something formal does get ironed out, we think the partnership would be a big win for everyone. We’ll keep you posted if we learn more.
In other Kanye news, his latest album, The Life Of Pablo has been streamed on Tidal 250 million times within the first ten days after its release, and his album cut “Famous”, which takes a clear jab at Taylor Swift, has been announced as the first official single. It is being sent to Rhythm radio now.
