Kanye West will be chopping it up with David Letterman.
Interestingly enough, Kanye West‘s appearance on My Guest Needs No Introduction follows former Watch The Throne collaborator Jay-Z’s interview in the first season. While it might be best chalked up to simple coincidence, we’ve never known Kanye to be one-upped by his “Big Brother.” In any case, Kanye will be blessing David Letterman with his presence during the upcoming second season, and a debut trailer reveals what we might be able to expect. Waiting backstage, Letterman hits Yeezy with a question centered around fashion: “if velcro had been invented first, would there be zippers?”

Kanye seems to ponder, uncertain. “It’s really a deep question,” he says. The trailer proceeds to unveil a new roster of guests, including Ellen DeGeneres, Tiffany Haddish, Melinda Gates, and Lewis Hamilton. Of course, Yeezy’s installment will likely make for a highlight episode, as the legendary rapper looks to cover a wide variety of ground. “When you’re bipolar, you have a potential to ramp up,” says Kanye. “It can take you to a point where you’re acting erratic, as TMZ would put it.” The crowd laughs, and Kanye looks to die a little inside.
While it’s possible he originally mistook Letterman for Rick Rubin, it looks like David Letterman will actually be well matched to trade words with Yeezy; while the Joe Rogan podcast may be a pipe dream, perhaps My Guest Needs No Introduction will be the next best thing. Look for season two to premiere on May 31st, exclusively on Netflix.
