What’s Kanye’s Obsession With ‘The Truman Show’?

'Ye has been referencing the 1998 reality TV-themed Jim Carrey movie, as recently as this week's epic BBC Radio sit-down.

Five years before he began starring in an actual reality show, Kanye West already felt like the hidden cameras were watching him all the time. And not just any cameras, but the ones from “The Truman Show,” the flick in which Jim Carrey’s character discovers that his entire existence is part of a lifelong network reality show.

“BONNAROO SHOULD HAVE RELEASED A STATEMENT IN MY DEFENSE BUT SINCE THEY HAVEN’T LET’S BREAK DOWN THE WALLS ON THIS TRUMAN SHOW AND LET YOU KNOW WHAT REALLY OCCURRED!!!” Kanye all-caps ranted back in 2008 after his set at the festival was delayed.
