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.
