Popular rapper Kanye West has made it known that he wants to appear on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast. On October 12, the music icon publicly asked the UFC commentator on Twitter to call him to schedule an interview for the hit show.

The Joe Rogan Experience continues to be the top podcast in the world, boasting millions of subscribers across YouTube and various platforms. The comedian has featured guests ranging from Tesla CEO Elon Musk, to lead Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler.

It seems as though the show could add wildly popular artist Kanye West to that list soon. The 21-time Grammy Award winner tweeted at the host and told him to schedule an interview as early as the week beginning October 12.

Kanye West wants to go on the Joe Rogan podcast

Listeners of the JRE podcast will know that Rogan has tried to get West on it numerous times. In 2019, the host revealed that an interview had not yet happened due to the artist being “complicated.”

However, it looks like the rap star is finally ready to go on show, as on October 12, he made a post on Twitter directed at the 53-year-old.

“Would love to go on Joe Rogan’s podcast LIVE this week I have my team trying to get your number Joe I’m in Calabassas Let’s do this my friend,” he tweeted.

The callout also featured a viral clip from a March 2019 episode where Rogan described his previous conversation with Kanye West. “I talked to him on the phone, where it was a stream of consciousness that was so intense,” he said.

The artist’s tweet also featured a “ski” emoji, which appears to be a reference to another podcast segment about him from February. In it, the commentator stated, “Kanye wants to get know me. We’ll do it. He’s a really nice guy, man. I’m not in a rush.”

At the time of writing, Rogan has yet to respond to the interview request. However, he has told viewers on numerous occasions that he really wants to sit down with the Grammy artist, making this look like an inevitability.

It’s unclear though if the JRE podcast’s move to Texas in September will be a conflict, as West stated he is currently in California. Although, the two states are a short flight away so perhaps the host will fly back to his old studio for this epic interview.

Josh Richards slams influencers who use the Sway House for clout points

Josh Richards is one of TikTok’s most popular content creators and an integral part of the Sway House — a group that he’s not too pleased is being used for clout by other influencers looking to get a leg up in the industry.

Josh Richards, who boasts over 22 million followers on TikTok (in no small part due to showing off his abs in every other video), feels that some creators are taking advantage of the Sway House’s kindness to grow their own platforms and split.

Richards spoke on the situation during an episode of Barstool Sports’ ‘BFFs’ podcast on October 13, claiming that he had at first wanted to help other creators get started by giving them a boost.

“I knew how to pump out a million videos back to back,” he explained. “And I’d do five a day. And then I would see these other kids who were starting to blow up, and I was like, ‘Okay, if I give them a little bit of direction, they could be huge.’”

However, co-host Dave Portnoy noted that sometimes these kinds of relationships can go south — a sentiment that Richards agreed with, sharing his own experiences with stars just trying to use the Sway House.

“There’s so many people that come to us, and they’ll start filming at our house,” he continued. “I think we’ve gotten better at not letting this happen, but they would just use us for videos. They would sleep over, they would always be like, ‘Get in our videos!’”

“The thing that sucks about that is that you don’t really know who’s out to get you anymore and then who’s just really trying to be there, be your homie and just vibe with you,” he added. “That really sucks.”

Richards isn’t the first internet star to make such claims, by far; YouTuber Jake Paul has also infamously accused other creators of using Team 10 to blow up and subsequently “act like they don’t know nobody,” leading to quite a bit of drama in his own realm.

While Richards’ statement has yet to be called out by other TikTokers, it’s not hard to believe that someone would try to piggyback off of someone else’s success in the age of social media fame.
