Kanye West reportedly came very close to being a regular on the TV series, “American Idol.”

A source claims that Kanye was offered the third and final spot on Idol’s judging panel for the upcoming 13th season, but after thinking it over he decided to pass.

He was worried it would hurt his reputation if he went that mainstream. The source adds, “He didn’t want to lose any street cred. So he turned it down.”

Personally, I think this was a bad decision on Ye’s part. I mean Nicki Minaj did it… and if Kanye was a judge I definitely would have been watching!
