Kanye West Parts Ways With DJ Mano
Kanye West and his tour DJ Mano have parted ways after several years of touring together.
Despite reports that suggest West terminated Mano because of his fumbles on the turntables (see the video above), the DJ said that's not the case.
Mano took to Twitter to lash out at Yeezy fans who were clowning him and tweeting homophobic comments.
“Gonna have a fun day blocking these kanye stans that are happy i don’t dj 4 him anymore hahahahaha!” he wrote. “A lot of u fans are low key gay and want more than a fan/relationship with the men they look up 2. I’m making a list and I’m collecting info. I’m gonna expose all the trolls.”
Mano also attacked the media for inaccurately reporting that he was fired from the tour. According to the DJ, he had to leave because he signed a deal with Warner/Chappell Music and is working on new projects.
"How n----s saying drake got fired from a job when he got multiple jobs? these blogs are retarded," he tweeted.
Mano has been West's tour DJ for several years. The artist has also produced songs for Yeezy in the past. Most notably, he's one of the producers listed on 'Lost in the World' from 'My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.'
However, as the fan-made clip above shows, Mano's turntable flubs on the Yeezus tour could easily drive a perfectionist like West insane.
Nevertheless, Mano's homophobic tweets below are unnecessary and doesn't put him in a good light.
