UPDATE: Complex says that “A source close to the situation told Complex that Kanye is not, and has no plans to, leave Roc Nation.” They back that up by saying Kanye is still featured on the Roc Nation artist page. Hmmm……
Hits Daily Double is reporting that Kanye West has left Roc Nation management. This, a little over a month after news of Kanye leaving his longtime agent Cara Lewis. Is ‘Ye about to be managed by Kim’s mom instead?
Here’s what HHD has to say:
“On a related topic, why is Roc Nation’s Rihanna’s “American Oxygen” not exploding at retail? The track sold a meager 7k last week. Is it possible the botched Tidal launch put that big a stink on the record? But the Rihanna-Tidal relationship is pressing on, according to a recent rumor, which has the struggling service getting a window of exclusivity on her forthcoming album, tentatively titled R8. In other action, Kanye West has left Roc Nation for management, inside sources say.”
No confirmation yet from Kanye’s camp or Roc Nation, so stay tuned and we’ll update you as we learn more.
