Kanye West has his fair share of relationships with comedians. Chris Rock introduced the rapper during the listening party for his latest album Ye, and Jonah Hill recently recalled his fateful journey to Wyoming for the same affair.
But the list doesn’t stop there. Seth Rogen recently recalled his own first encounter with Yeezy, thanks to his neighbors. “My house is right around the corner from a personal trainer who trains famous people, basically,” Rogen told Rolling Stone for their "The First Time" series. “One morning I was leaving my house, and Kanye West jogged by me and said, ‘You’re a funny motherfucker!’ And I was like, ‘I think that was Kanye West!’ but I wasn’t 100 percent sure.'”
Weeks later, the comedian was sleeping in with a hangover when the doorbell rang. His wife answered the door, and lo and behold, it was Kanye on the other side. He stood there with a ball under his arm, waiting to see if Rogen wanted to join him for a game of basketball.
“She goes, ‘Who is this?’ and then I heard her go, ‘Kanye’ who?'” the actor recalled. “And then I was like, ‘Oh, no! It’s Kanye West!’ And I ran downstairs, and he was literally standing downstairs with a basketball under his arm and was like, ‘You wanna come play?’ – like he was just a kid in the neighborhood. And I was like, ‘Dude, I’m so hungover. I can’t do this.’ I’ve run into him periodically over the years. And I love Kanye West.”
Elsewhere in the interview Rogen talks about a trio make out session he once had with Nick Kroll and James Franco, and tells the horrific story of how he once had to shove beef jerky up his booty. If any of that interests you, watch the full video above.
