Okay, I must first say that I never thought I would be reporting about some dangone Muppets twice in the same day but there seems to be a whole lotta nothing happening in Hollywood these days and therefore Muppets it is. According to the Hollywood Reporter, my boy Kanyeezy has teamed up with Comedy Central for an upcoming project that is described as hip-hop meets the Muppets.
Yes folks I said it, hip-hop and Muppets in the same sentence. Apparently, a half-hour pilot has been shot for the project, tentatively titled "Alligator Boots." The show, which is under consideration for 2009, would feature music produced and performed by West and fellow rapper Rhymefest, both of whom are serving as executive producers on the pilot. West also hosts the pilot; the idea is to have a different celebrity guest host for every episode, similar to the setup on the original "Muppet Show."
Sigh...to be young, black, and in Hollywood.
