The G.O.O.D. Music head honcho has been managed by Roc Nation for years.  But with his recent and seemingly volatile relationship with the Roc’s head honcho Jay Z–who he calls his big brother–things may not be all good in that camp.

HITS Daily Double reported today about some possible drama with Rihanna‘s R8 album that Kanye is producing.  And their sources said ‘Ye is OUT at ROc Nation:

On a related topic, why is Roc Nation’s Rihanna’s “American Oxygen” not exploding at retail? The track sold a meager 7k last week. Is it possible the botched Tidal launch put that big a stink on the record? But the Rihanna-Tidal relationship is pressing on, according to a recent rumor, which has the struggling service getting a window of exclusivity on her forthcoming album, tentatively titled R8. In other action, Kanye West has left Roc Nation for management, inside sources say.


Kanye’s name remains on the management roster of Roc Nation’s site.  And he did seem to be buddy buddy again with Jay at the Roc Nation Pre-Grammy brunch a few months ago (above).

Still, it seems their issues over The Carters missing The Wests’ wedding, Kris Jenner being in Kanye’s ear, Kanye removing his TIDAL tweets…then re posting them, and other drama could be causing friction.  We can’t confirm it’s all true yet, but we wouldn’t be surprised if an announcement was made soon…
