Is Kanye West Going To Let Kim Kardashian’s Mother Manage Him?

Happy 35th Birthday Yeezy!

We can all see that Kanye West is totally in love, or others may say infatuated, with Kim Kardashian, but would Yeezy let that infatuation affect his business?

You bet he would!

According to MediaTakeOut.com, a top-notch source (you may now proceed to lol) has told them that Kim Kardashian has convinced Yeezy into hiring her mother, Kris Jenner, as his new manager.

Hold on one second though. Is Yeezy really going to put his career in the hands of a reality show manager? He’s not that crazy — Jenner will allegedly be handling all of his non-music related business only.

The insider Kris Jenner explained,”Kris [Jenner] is amazing in what she can get. If you’re a celeb, she can get you big money for tweeting, for sitting at fashion show, for doing interviews. . . It was an easy sell, Kanye was like ‘sure’.”

But Kris Jenner will reportedly be handling more than just publicity and appearances for Kanye. Kris will be helping Kanye get his DONDA fashion line distributed internationally at major retailers. But you know once she’s in there, Jenner is going to try to take the whole pie! If she has her way, she plans to eventually be managing his touring as well. One thing’s for sure, Kris Jenner knows how to get money!

Stalley, Chase N Cashe and Hit-Boy Exchange Words on Twitter

Stalley thinks he’s being overlooked and he wants everybody to know it.

The MMG rhymeslinger took to his Twitter account earlier today (June 8) and voiced his opinion that his video for “Live At Blossom” was the best clip to drop this week, not G.O.O.D. Music’s “Mercy” or Hit-Boy’s “Jay-Z Interview.”

“I’m tired of holding myself back, I dropped the Best video that came out this week and y’all worried about Mercy or a Jay-Z interview,” Stalley tweeted to the masses.

“I’m disinterested in Mass Media. People say i’m mad, but i’m not this fake person who is always happy and Humble. I’m a Savage. I put everything in my music and i’m really sick of being overlooked. I put out the best two mixtapes in the last two years. No Hype around them, just good music. I’m not hating on any one artist or anyone’s music,” he continued.

But that’s not how others felt. New Orleans producer/rapper Chase N. Cashe took to Twitter to respond and defend his friend, Hit-Boy. “@Stalley It was a bunch of niggas drop videos this year my dawg,” he tweeted.

“You around big names as well just do you and focus up. It’s simple. Hit-Boy is the wrong nigga for people to hate on cuz all that nigga do is show love and keep positive energy around.”

Hit-Boy didn’t take Stalley’s mention negatively, though.

“Stalley just text’d me,” said the producer of Jay-Z and Kanye West’s ‘Ni**as in Paris’ who is trying his hand at rapping.

“Chase always stands up for me when someone speaks but i didn’t even take the tweet the way everyone else did.”

Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music family dropped the video to “Mercy” on Wednesday, before Hit-Boy made his rapping debut with his “Jay-Z Interview” clip and Stalley debuted “Live at Blossom” on Thursday.

50 Cent and Oprah put their differences aside on “Oprah’s Next Chapter.”

In another preview from tonight’s episode, the platinum rapper tells Oprah why he named his Miniature Schnauzer after her.

“You know when they say a dog is a man’s best friend?” asked an embarrassed Fif, who also has a cat named after Oprah’s best friend Gayle.

“At the time, I was just looking at the situation and I was developing negative feelings for someone who doesn’t even know me,” he explained. “I gave it to the dog ’cause I was excited about the dog at the time.”

But he has grown fond of the dog and Oprah throughout the years. “I take pictures and say crazy stuff on Twitter, but it would impact because they would associate it with me saying it to you.” He also admits to being in love during the interview, which airs tonight at 9 p.m. on OWN.
