Kanye West has gone back to his longtime agent Cara Lewis at the Creative Artists Agency (CAA).

According to the Hollywood Reporter, West will join one of Hollywood’s top talent agencies, with a powerhouse client roster that includes Will Smith, 50 Cent and Justin Timberlake

While spending over 23 years at William Morris Endeavor, Lewis has represented Rihanna, Nas, Eminem, Lupe Fiasco, Cee Lo Green, Pitbull and other major talent. Lewis is listed as No. 14 on Billboard’s 2011 Women in Music list, bringing extensive power to CAA’s music department. She moved to CAA in January of 2012, and now Mr. West has chosen to follow.

The rapper just finished the worldwide Watch the Throne tour with fellow rap star Jay-Z, which was the highest grossing trek in hip hop history, solidifying the Chicago hip hop artist’s star power and the revenue he could bring to CAA in the future.
