Kanye West has parted ways with his tour DJ Million Dollar Mano.

The reason for the split is unclear but the DJ revealed his departure via his Twitter page. He wrote:





No reason has been given for the split, but a video montage featuring the DJ making a series of mistakes during various West gigs has been posted online. You can view the clip below. Mano previously produced 'Lost In The World' on West's 2010 album 'My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy'.

Meanwhile, a rough recording of what appears to be a new track by the rapper entitled 'All Day' leaked online and has since been pulled.

Speaking about a forthcoming new album and unnamed potential single earlier this summer, West said: "For the new album, one new thing could change everything. I had an idea of the way I wanted to do the album. And then I got a new song that's so good that the album has to be balanced against it.

"This song is a song that can be in the club like 'Don't Like' or 'Niggas In Paris'. Whereas before I was working on the album and I had these beautiful songs, they were just more songs. They weren't saying, 'OK, tuck your whole summer in.' They were just saying, 'Hey, I'm a great musician, I make these beautiful songs, and they have all this meaning, and nobody can make anything that means this much.'"
