While Kanye West gears up for his highly anticipated Yeezus follow-up, the rapper and producer appears to be leaving behind some baggage. Namely, he's parted ways with touring DJ Million Dollar Mano.

The DJ, who has served as Kanye's live go-to for a while and co-produced "Lost in the World" on My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, is no longer a member of Kanye's touring team.

While no reason was given for the firing, some think it may have been due to frequent onstage screw-ups. Someone at the Kanye to the forum has pieced together a supercut of Mano's live flubs, where songs frequently stopped too quickly or started at the wrong moment. You can watch that below [via Stereogum].

In response to the firing, Mano was less than professional. He bragged about blocking Kanye's fans, and called them "low key gay." Check out some of his tweets below.
