A good two years ago, the makers of the animation series "Rick and Morty" offered Kanye West an episode of their own. Before the fifth season kicks off on June 20, co-creator Dan Harmon gave an interview to news channel MSNBC. He also talked about the current status of the possible collaboration with Ye.

"Rick and Morty": Kanye West as an "incredible listener"

Will the episode with Kanye West even come off? Here Harmon is ambiguous when asked:

"We'll see. I think if Kanye signs up like he did to do an episode, it won't just come down to Kanye doing a role or Kanye doing a song. It's like us agree that it really needs to be woven into the Rick and Morty franchise [...]. "

("Time will tell. I think that when Kanye signs on as he did to do an episode, it's not just gonna be like Kanye doing a guest voice or Kanye doing a song. It's like we agreed it needed to be really interwoven with the Rick and Morty franchise having its own integrity and Kanye having his own. ")

Harmon does not want to spoil the result that this specification could ultimately lead to. In the end, a collaboration between and "Rick and Morty" and Kanye would amount to "a lot of music".

As far as the plot of such a special episode is concerned, they have apparently already exchanged views personally. A complete episode was developed "within minutes". Contrary to popular perception, Harmon describes the US artist as an "incredible listener".

At this point in the deliberations, however, "seven different companies" had already intervened and apparently had a say in the whole matter. So an episode with Kanye West (now streaming on Apple Music) seems to have to be coordinated extensively.

Kanye is a declared super fan of the series. In 2018 he tweeted that he had seen every episode of his declared "favorite show" at least five times. Kanye's ex Kim Kardashian also knew about this passion for the duo's adventures and donated a special birthday greeting.
