Soon you will be able to see him, or an animated version of him, on “The Cleveland Show.” This is the “FOX” network’s spin off of the animated series “Family Guy.” The rap star Kanya West will play the part of a local hero names Kenny West who enters into a rhyme battle with the star of the animated show,Cleveland Brown. The two will be battling for the affections of a girl, (voice of Taraji P. Henson.)

“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!’” Kanya had came in to for a script reading at the location where the shows “Family Guy”, “American Dad”, and “The Cleveland Show” are all produced. “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.” West did his voice recordings last month. The show is set to air May 2.
