Hip-Hop Rumors: Peep Why Kanye Turned Down American Idol!

Who knew Kanye West was concerned about his street fred? A year or so ago, I heard Kanye was concerned with his street credibility. This is right around the time he jumped on that remix with Chief Keef. My sources told me that was a pretty overt move to stay on it with the streets. But, American Idol means a massive audience. US Weekly is stating that Kanye say no to “Idol,” because he didn’t want to lose what street cred he’s built up.

“He didn’t want to go that mainstream. He didn’t want to lose any street cred. So he turned it down.”

I’m not fully convinced of this sources cred.

    A.I is done anyway. When all you begin to hear about are the judges as opposed to the contestants you know it’s over. Still I doubt he was so worried about his street cred that he’d turn down a $16M contract. How else does he intend to see that much money in one year?

  • brotha_man

    hahahahahahahhahah…street cred? ye lost that with all them tight a$$ clothes, the skirt, his latest album, kim K, and naming his baby North!

  • brotha_man

    didn’t know Kanye had street credit–i always looked at him as a mainstream rapper and producer–them streets in the chi is mean–i don’t recall Kanye rapping about crime or anything that proves street credit–he rapped about being in a wreck when he first came out–don’t think Kanye was in the streets like that–i think it’s a little to late for that away–lol.

  • dayleedumped

    street fredididididamnn

    • theKID

      LMAO!!!!!!!

  • He wore a leather skirt… His street credibility has been gone! What are you talking about! Learn how to spell 1st of all and stop reaching! SMH!

    • agree 100 percent, was about to type the same shit!!!

  • Matt Swan

    Outside of Fred, when was Ye ever in the streets? Isn’t he that dude that always comes to the hood to “look the part” then go home to a nice home in the burbs? If he’s worried about his street CRED, that card was pulled as soon as went home the first night. IMO he turned it down so mama K couldn’t use that as some kind of spring board for one more of her brood to wind up on another dumba$$ show. But I could be reaching just like this site does with it’s rumors
