'Rick and Morty' creators offer Kanye West his own episode of the show
Adult Swim, the show's network, tweeted an announcement video in which the animated title characters share the new season's release date with fans, captioning the clip: "We heard some of you were interested in this information."
Take a look at the season four video announcement, courtesy of Rick and Morty:
The release date for season four was officially announced this morning at the WarnerMedia upfront presentation in New York.
But that certainly wasn't the only exciting piece of news to have come to light at the WarnerMedia event.
It was at this very event, in fact, that Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland - the show's creators - were asked about a potential collaboration with Kanye West who is known to be a huge fan of the series.
"Ye is a f**king kindred spirit, genius, visionary," Roiland says in response. "If that guy had the support to do all the ideas he has in his head, he'd be f**king Elon Musk 2.0."
Harmon then adds that the 41-year-old rapper is "always welcome" while his co-creator agrees, saying they would love for West to "hang out and do a voice."
"I'm giving him an episode," Harmon continues. "I'm making it official. We have 70, he can have one. Kanye, you can have one... It's official. That would be f**king amazing."
In an interview with Polygon last June, Roiland spoke of his excitement for writing the upcoming episodes. "We’re super excited that, for the first time ever, we’re locked in, we know what the future is, we have job security," Roiland said.
"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."
Considering the show has been renewed for a staggering 70 episodes, we're sure the creators will easily be able to fit in an ep for one of biggest rap superstars of all time.
