Scooter Braun has managed Kanye West for two and a half years. But as West plans to distance himself from the traditional music business, per a source, Braun has decided to part ways with his client, according to Billboard.

It is said that Kanye is aiming to transition his entire operation in-house, a move that is becoming increasingly popular in the business, thus doing away with outside music management and a coinciding lawyer. He is, however, still linked to Def Jam with a record deal, as well as Sony/ATV for publishing. Braun and West's companies will also continue to work with one another.

Scooter Braun, who also manages Justin Bieber, had been co-managing 'Ye since March of 2016.

This isn't the only recent split for Kanye, though. Just last month he parted ways with longtime manager Izvor "Izzy" Zivkovic.
