G.O.O.D. Music's Kid Cudi congratulated Kanye West for his "Cleveland Show" television appearance which aired last night.
Writing on his KidCudi.com blog, Cudder shared his thoughts on Kanye's animated cartoon performance.
"HAHAHAHA KENNY WEST MUTHAF*CKAAAAA," Cudi wrote Sunday (May 2) evening. "man congrats to big brother Kanye for a really good job on this, mad funny haha. we do it all over here at Dream On/G.O.O.D. "Watch us Bo Jackson this sh*t."-Cud" (Kid Cudi's Blog)
The episode's co-star Reagan Gomez previously revealed West's role on the show.
"[Kanye's character] has a girlfriend who's played by Taraji [P. Henson] and Cleveland [Jr.] is in love with his girlfriend," Gomez said in an interview. "So they're kind of at odds and at the end of the show they have a rap-off, a rap battle. Everybody thinks Kanye is gonna murder Cleveland Jr. 'cause he's the sensitive one in the family and he never really says too much, but Cleveland Jr. kinda put a whooping on that a**. You have to wait and see but it's really, really funny." (VIBE)
The rapper portrayed an animated character named "Kenny West."
has kept a fairly low profile in recent months, but soon you'll be able to catch him -- or at least his animated alter ego -- in the May 2 episode of Fox's "Family Guy" spin-off "The Cleveland Show." You can see the first official image of West's guest spot in the new issue of EW, on stands today, or check it out right here in this post. In the episode, the rap megastar voices a 19-year-old local hero named, er, 'Kenny West,' who gets into a lopsided rhyme battle with the show's 'Cleveland Brown, Jr.' over the affections of a young woman who's voiced by Taraji P. Henson. (Entertainment Weekly)
Earlier this year, the show's co-creator Rich Appel confirmed West's appearance.
"We knew that Kanye was a 'Family Guy' fan," 'Cleveland Show' co-creator Rich Appel tells the Music Mix. "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!'" (EW Music Mix)
