You Need To Watch A Clip From The Simpsons' Great Gatsby Hip-Hop Episode
Featuring Snoop Dogg, RZA, Common and Keegan-Michael Key!
A teaser clip from The Simpsons' Great Gatsby hip-hop episode has been released, and it looks like it’s going to be special. Make sure you check out the teaser trailer below.
The new episode will guest-star Keegan-Michael Key, from Comedy Central’s excellent Key & Peele, alongside Snoop Dogg, Common and Wu-Tang Clan's RZA.
Keegan-Michael Key will play Jazzy James, a washed-up rapper who now sells “really high-end” candles. In the teaser clip below, Key talks us through how he settled on the voice for Jazzy James. Hint: small dreadlocks changed everything.
The double-length episode will feature around Mr Burns’ friendship with a hip-hop mogul named Jay G and his act of betrayal that calls for Bart and Homer to help him seek revenge. We can't wait to see it.
Of course, this isn’t the first time The Simpsons has guest-starred musicians, since everyone from Paul McCartney to Britney Spears has appeared. Two years ago, the longest-running animated comedy even featured Pharrell Williams – and his massive hat – on the show.
