Kanye West has been offered to chance to collaborate with Rick and Morty creators Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland, on his very own episode.
Ye has never made a secret of his love for the show, and now the creative masterminds would love to have him ‘hang out and do a voice’.
Harmon and Roiland were asked by Adam Glyn about the possibility of a collaboration with West at the WarnerMedia event on Wednesday morning.

In a video published by Blast, Roiland said:
Ye is a fucking kindred spirit, genius, visionary.
If that guy had the support to do all the ideas he has in his head, he’d be fucking Elon Musk 2.0.
I’m giving him an episode. I’m making it official. We have 70, he can have one. Kanye, you can have one. It’s official. That would be fucking amazing.
On the very same day, Harry Potter himself, or Daniel Radcliffe as he goes by these days, was extended the same offer by Harmon and Roiland, although there’s no word on whether he’ll be accepting the prestigious offer.
Meanwhile, Rick and Morty fans were given the news they’d all been waiting for – season four of the alternative comedy sketch will return in November.
It was recently revealed the writers had signed for 70 new episodes, which is nearly double the number of episodes that exist so far.
Roiland told Polygon:
We’re super excited that, for the first time ever, we’re locked in, we know what the future is, we have job security. Harmon is in great spirits, we have a great writers’ room.
We want the episodes to stay good, but we do also want to try to turn them around a little quicker now that we have this big order, I think it gives us the ability to be faster.
We’re not going to do these long breaks, these chasms in between seasons anymore.
We’re going to schedule vacation time and just keep the machine going. It’s going to be really cool.
However, Kanye could be a bit too busy working on a different television project at the moment, given that last month he revealed plans for a potential Showtime series. Ye said Jaden Smith would play a young version of himself in an ‘alternative reality’, which is thought to be in the development stages now.
The anthology series is set to comprise of a limited number of half-hour episodes, which will examine ‘the many doors of perception’, Variety reports. Season one is set to explore the Ego through Kanye, played by Smith.
Titled Omniverse, the series is set to be written and executive produced by Lee Sung Jin, while West’s longtime manager Scooter Braun will also executive produce alongside Scott Manson and James Shin.
West also filmed an appearance on David Letterman’s Netflix series in January, which is set to be released soon.
