Kanye West Says He “Can’t Be Managed”

Yesterday, it was widely reported that Kanye West had split from superstar manager Scooter Braun after a partnership that lasted a little over two years. This morning, West responded to those reports on Twitter, confirming that he no longer has a manager because he “can’t be managed,” an assertion that will shock no one (and was liked by Scooter Braun himself).

He later tweeted that he got rid of his lawyer and “last manager”—which appears to refer to Braun—because they wouldn’t work full time for him.

He also referred to Yeezy as  “on its way to becoming a decacorn,” a tech industry term for start ups valued at $10 billion.

Kanye using Silicon Valley jargon is just insanely wack, I think we can all agree.
