Snoop Dogg, RZA, And Frequent Will Star In The Simpsons’ Hip-Hop Fantastic Gatsby

No word but as to regardless of whether or not Leonardo DiCaprio will make an look to reprise the most well-known GIF of his career in Springfield, but get excited, Simpsons fans: A Wonderful Gatsby-inspired epic is heading your way with a hip-hop twist.

Entertainment Weekly reports that The Simpsons have assembled Snoop Dogg, RZA, and Widespread — who producer Dan Greaney calls “the Mount Rushmore of rap” — for an upcoming episode that draws inspiration from your preferred book from 11th-grade lit.

The rappers will be voicing cartoonified versions of themselves for “The Excellent Phatsby,” and Taraji P. Henson and Keegan Michael-Important will also be signing on for the episode.

Instead of Nick Carraway, we’ll apparently have Homer taking a break from his doughnuts and “D’OH!”-ing to play narrator Mr. Burns will play the wealthy guy with the lavish estate in the Hamptons, a mogul named Jay G will come along and start a ton of problems, and all will descend into madness to the tune of some original music penned by Empire‘s music producer, Jim Beanz.

No word yet as to whether or not or not Martha Stewart will have a cameo, but chances are she’ll tune in to support her preferred dinner party co-host.
