Last month, The Simpsons announced that they would be premiering their first-ever hour-long special, a surprising fact considering it has been on the air for literal decades. Not only is it a super-sized episode, but it is one themed entirely around hip-hop and starring actual rappers. Now, the show has released the first trailer for the special and you can watch it above.
Titled “The Great Phatsby,” the show features the voice talents of Snoop Dogg, RZA and Common, as well as Empire actress Taraji P. Henson. The episode is loosely based around F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, though that classic of American literature had little to nothing to do with the recording industry.
Look out for “The Great Phatsby” to premiere on FOX this Sunday, January 15.
