‘The Simpsons’ Airs Rap-Themed Episode Starring RZA, Common and Snoop Dogg
The Simpsons is one of the longest-running shows in television history, and they've covered just about every topic, issue, and joke imaginable. What the series hasn't done, however, is make an entire episode that's dedicated to the culture of hip-hop and rap music. While rappers have made cameo appearances on the mega popular cartoon in the past, the latest episode is titled "The Great Phatsby," and it's completely rap-themed.
Not only are there appearances from some of our favorites including Common, RZA, and Snoop Dogg, but there's even a cool new theme song that has a Jim Beanz remix to it. The new theme song features the old tune, but has a trap-esque beat in the background to bring the hip hop flavor to life. The episode features the story of the tension between Mr. Burns and his rival, the fictional rap mogul Jay G.
You get to hear brand new verses from some of your favorite rap stars in the episode, and it's sure to bring out all of the nostalgic feels.
