Kanye West has been pretty quiet lately, even after launching his "new" blog, but that is about to change. In the May 2nd episode of Fox's "Family Guy" spin-off "The Cleveland Show," Kanye will make an appearance. In the episode, Kanye voices a 19-year-old local hero named, Kenny West, who gets into a rhyme battle with the show’s Cleveland Brown, Jr.
"We knew that Kanye was a Family Guy fan," Cleveland Show co-creator Rich Appel said. "He’s made reference to it on his website and stuff. In the writers’ room, we just thought it would be great to have him as a character on the town. So we came up with the story. He really liked it and said, ‘Sure!’" Kanye even went to a table reading a year ago. "You know, I’ve worked on The Simpsons and Family Guy and King of the Hill," says Appel. "We’ve had a lot of guest stars. It’s very rare that a guest star is eager and willing to come to the table read. He showed up 15 minutes early."
"He could not have been more collaborative or easier to work with. We’re excited, because his character has become a recurring character in our universe…He’ll become our Sideshow Bob!"
