The 'Gold Digger' star attempts a Curb Your Enthusiasm style show with the never-aired footage.
A clip from Kanye West's sitcom that never went to air has been found online – three years after it was posted.
The 'Jesus Walks' star can be seen taking part in a charity meet and greet with a young fan who is not that enthused to meet the rapper.
Gawker writes that HBO scraped the show deeming it to "hardcore" at the time and that the rapper was hoping to emulate something similar to the popular TV series Curb Your Enthusiasm – starring Larry David.
"What Kanye West said to me the first time, he said, 'I'm the black Larry David'," revealed executive producer Larry Charles back in 2008 to MTV. "That's the first thing he said to me. So it's like a Kanye-and-'Curb' show, it's kind of improvised about the situations and stuff."

Meanwhile, the star has recently become a first time father alongside Kim Kardashian as they welcomed a baby girl.
Kanye also released new album 'Yeezus' last month.
