Kanye West has confirmed that he will appear on the popular YouTube podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience.
Taking to Twitter to confirm the news, West wrote: "Spoke with Joe Rogan Podcast coming soon."
The announcement comes after a whirlwind 2018 for the star which saw the rapper wax lyrical of Donald Trump's attributes as president to claiming that slavery was a choice.
But it appears the hip-hop maestro is now intent on doing a more 'serious interview' that would cover topics such as mental health; a subject he claimed the press was 'afraid' to ask him about due to his bipolar diagnosis.
Unsurprisingly, news of the upcoming episode sparked much excitement on social media. One Twitter user admitted that news of the forthcoming West episode had spawned series bouts of sweating. "LOOOL I`m so hyped for this podcast I started sweating."
Another user appeared to suggest that it would be good either way and would be a win-win for viewers, regardless of whether West lost focus. "I really want it to be good, but a disaster would be so much fun."
Still, while West says he wants a 'serious' discussion in his next interview, he hasn't helped himself in the last few days.
Just minutes after confirming his forthcoming appearance, West wrote about the Trump MAGA hat, "One of my favorite of many things about what the Trump hat represents to me is that people can't tell me what to do because I'm black."
In another tweet, he wrote, "From now on I'm performing with my mutherfucking hat on."
Let's see how long that lasts.
