Will Ferrell: Kanye West Wouldn’t Stop Playing Music on Anchorman 2 Set


(AllHipHop News) The world may not fully understand Kanye West but there is one immutable truth we all can agree on: Kanye West wants to be heard. According to Will Ferrell, the loquacious MC’s desire to be heard was an enjoyable obstruction to the filming of Anchorman 2 as Kanye kept playing his music on the set.

During his interview for his cover story, Ferrell reveals that Kanye West and a still pregnant Kim Kardashian visited the set for Kanye’s acting role in the new movie. While on set, Kanye previewed songs from Yeezus for the crew, however did not know when to stop:

He was playing it through the sound department, on the speakers on set, at the park, as people were setting up for the next shot. Which was great. But then he didn’t understand when it had to be turned off, when it was time to actually film. He was like, ‘Hey man, what’s going on?’ We didn’t want Kanye to get upset, but at the same time, we kind of had to film.

Anchorman 2 director Adam McKay even acknowledged that Kanye asked him for advice on filmmaking. Kanye has a history of attempting to get into filmmaking with his 2012 limited-release Cruel Summer “7-screen experience” being his latest involvement in movies.

Drake is also confirmed to be in Anchorman 2 along with Kanye. Anchorman 2 is set to hit theaters on December 18th.
