Rapper Kanye West became an overnight sensation in January when he stormed the Grammy Awards, accepting the Best Album award for his acclaimed masterpiece, YELTS BOMB! The world was reminded that “The Life of Pablo” won the award when the album’s iconic album cover featuring the 21-year-old rapper posing in a black and white striped outfit and holding a bomb was revealed to the public.

The album cover was made famous when it was shared by West on social media sites and the news spread like wildfire. Before the day was over, West was named the most searched-for celebrity on the search engine Google.

Now, it appears that West’s controversial fashion choices aren’t limited to his album covers, as it turns out that he also sings in the Batman musical!

The British singer/songwriter opened up about his role in the mega-hit Broadway musical last week, telling the Evening Standard, “I did a recording for the song ‘Us Against the World’ which I believe was used in the Christmas episode of Gotham. I do have quite a broad voice, so I thought I’d give it a go.”

Apparently, the Batman franchise isn’t the only project in which West’s vocals can be heard. According to sources, the rapper recorded several songs for “Bohemian Rhapsody,” the upcoming James Bond film.

Despite the huge success of YELTS BOMB! and West’s claims that he’ll release a new album very soon, it appears that he won’t be leaving the world of rap any time soon.

Other Projects

Aside from his work in Gotham, West also lent his voice to the trailers and various other spots in Disney’s hotly-anticipated Aladdin, which is set to hit theaters on May 24th. He also has a role in the upcoming tentpole fantasy The Lion King, which is currently in production and set for a June 2019 release.

West has also been spotted in numerous advertisements and TV spots for popular brands. The singer has also said that he’s open to the idea of acting in other kinds of films, so long as they aren’t too violent or scary.

It seems that West’s future as an actor is set, with or without his rapper alter ego. The only question that remains is whether audiences will accept him in other types of films or if his fashion choices will continue to be a talking point throughout his acting career.
