Kanye West Confirms Television Project, Says It’s Not a Reality Show

Kanye West recently confirmed a report, originally published in the Hollywood Reporter, that said he was developing a television program with HBO. Contrary to the original report, West stated that the project will not be a reality show. “I wouldn’t do something as cliché as a reality show. At least give me the credit for being more creative than that,” West said in a recent Def Jam press release. He went on to say that the show will be more in the vein of a sitcom and that he has been developing the idea with executive producers Rick Rubin and Larry Charles. “It’s fictional and loosely based on my life,” said the Grammy-winning rapper and producer. “Maybe this will give me the opportunity to spaz out at the Emmys one day.”

    Kanye is nuttn’ but a let down . !st album a classic. was so fresh at a time we needed it. 2cnd album sounded rushed and wasn’t half as good as Mr. West thinks. Go back to lab — stay of the screen cause most tha time He’s judt embarrasing himself

    2nd album was nice but disposable after 2 months (the problem with nowadays hip-hop… to me) & u right: — stay of the screen cause most tha time He’s judt embarrasing himself

    he’s gonna hae a lotta creative room being on HBO

  • Ill Will

    It wont be wack, but kanye on film is usually pretty bad

  • Patkilpat

    Sounds like Curb Your Enthusiasm, if it is It’ll probably be a good show. “Curb” is a dope show.

  • Forever222

    Late Registration is incredible. More cohesive than College Dropout. Bittersweet sounds like a dope song and should be on Graduation.

    The College Dropout was the most cliche album title/marketing strategy in the history of a successful musician. Most of all it was’nt even his/your f*ckin idea. You only won grammys and touched creative topics because of me.


    Words of golden advice, come up with a new title for your new album if you want to show people your creative and not dragging out the same topic.
