An unnamed source revealed to gossip mag Us Weekly that Kanye West turned down an offer from "American Idol" execs to appear as a judge in the next season of the popular televised beating of a horse carcass singing competition. The reason? Street cred. Duh.
"He didn't want to go that mainstream," the source told Us. "He didn't want to lose any street cred. So he turned it down."
This makes perfect sense, since 'Ye will be cashing in all of his long-accrued cred on Friday when he appears on Kris Jenner's talk show to tell the housewives of America about his new fatherhood. Without a large deposit of street credit prior to this appearance, Kanye's G status may be revoked by the Street Cred Bank and they might have to repossess his Jesus chain. Watch the teaser below.
