More rumours now that Lyor Cohen, until recently top recorded music man at Warner, is about to launch a new management company, with chatter that the new firm’s first client may be a certain Kanye West.

According to Hits Daily Double, it’s thought that West’s current manager Izvor ‘Izzy’ Zivkovic may be part of Cohen’s new venture, and would bring the management of his most famous client with him. There have been reports that Cohen would launch a talent management and brand partnerships agency ever since his sudden departure from Warner Music in September.
