Scooter Braun will executive produce alongside Kanye, James Shin, Scott Manson and Lee Sung Jin.

    That kid looks like his brains are fried from too many drugs. Didn’t he move out of home when he was like 13 to get his own apartment?

    Well, who would know the concept of ‘ego’ better than the living embodiment of narcissism himself, Mr. Kanye West?
