This is not a drill: Kanye West just taped an episode of Family Feud

We don’t normally rush to break hot “game show guest star casting” news here at The A.V. Club, but sometimes there’s a tidbit that’s just too good to pass up. Like, say, the fact that Kanye West—the mercurial, brilliant, frequently impulsive rap superstar known for more-or-less always saying the first thing that pops into his head—will be facing off against Steve Harvey on an upcoming episode of Family Feud.


The news was broken by Kanye’s wife, Kim Kardashian West, who announced that she’d just gotten done filming an episode pitting her branch of the family—including Yeezy, herself, an aunt, and two of West’s cousins—against the Kardashian-Jenners. That’s all well and good, but we have to confess that all we really care about is seeing how West—apparently a huge fan of the show—does; Family Feud is at its slightly trashy best when Harvey is forced to straight-face his way through the random musings of unpredictable contestants, and it doesn’t get much less predictable than Ye. Sadly, there’s no word yet on when this potentially beautiful clusterfuck of game show goodness might air.
