According to the director, the show wasn’t picked up because it was “too hardcore” (a word that had never been within such close proximity of anything Larry-David-related before). In one scene, for instance, Kanye has a Make a Wish meeting with a child and ends up sending the following message to others like him: “Yo, whattup to all the dying kids. I know y'all my dawgs. And you know, all dogs go to heaven!” Another “joke” involves a woman giving a detailed description of a girl dying in a car crash. It’s like they got the awkward part of Curb Your Enthusiasm right, but forgot the comedy.
So the project went nowhere, but that didn’t stop Kanye from trying something even weirder. A few years later, he starred in and produced a pilot for a “hip-hop Muppet Show” called Alligator Boots (NSFW). Don’t click on that link unless you want to see some full-frontal Muppet dick (yeah, we’re surprised HBO didn’t pick up this one).
The pilot also co-starred West’s future wife Kim Kardashian, who is hit on by a horny bear puppet version of Barry White while dressed as Princess Leia. She then announces she’ll have sex with Beary, because the script for this thing was apparently some online fanfiction Kanye found while Googling himself and liked.
