Kanye West didn't go all that long without management, as Billboard reports that Scooter Braun and John Monopoly are now co-managing the 41-year-old musician/designer, news that initially broke during West's interview with 107.5 WGCI Chicago from today.

Kanye decided to shake things up earlier this year, parting ways with longtime manager Izvor "Izzy" Zivkovic, as well as co-manager Scooter Braun. "I no longer have a manager. I can't be managed," West insisted in a tweet from April.

Since, however, Ye has still been working with Braun, as he said the reconfiguration "was more about wording than anything," and that Braun was in "kind of in the same role, but more [as] an advisor."

Going forward, West will be co-managed by both Braun and John Monopoly. Monopoly served as Kanye's manager during the first decade of his career, including his first three albums, before parting ways in 2008.

Ye's decision to bring back management could be due to his overly busy last couple of months, which included five album releases and a number of controversial public remarks. For more on Kanye's hiring of Braun and Monopoly, visit Billboard.

Also in today's interview in Chicago, Kanye said he did not provide Pusha-T with intel during his beef with Drake.
