Kanye West wants some of what Justin Bieber's got -- he's hiring his manager Scooter Braun to take the reins of his music and fashion empire.
Sources close to the situation tell TMZ ... Scooter and Yeezy have been friends and confidants for a long time, but will now consult together on Kanye's brand. We're told his main task will be organizing the staff of 'Ye's ever-expanding businesses.
Our sources say there's already a contract laid out for the deal that's waiting to be signed ... but Scooter's already taken over the manager workload for Yeezy.
Gotta hand it to Scooter ... dude keeps landing bigger and bigger clients.
