Taraji P. Henson, Snoop Get Animated in The Simpsons

The Simpsons are gearing up for their first-ever hourlong episode and Taraji P. Henson, Snoop Dogg, Common, RZA and Keegan-Michael Key are along for the adventure.

In the upcoming episode, Mr. Burns is having a life crisis and tries to relive his glory days of being in music business. While he’s stuck in the past, he crosses paths with a mysterious music mogul. However, the connection turns out to be all a facade. Burns is conned by the “mogul” and ends up hitting bankruptcy. Of course, he’s not going to let the conman get away that easy. He teams with Homer, Bart and rapper Jazzy James (Key) and his wife Praline (Henson) on his quest for revenge. Snoop, Common and RZA tag along as well.

Check out the below clip tease featuring a behind-the-scenes interview with the hilarious Keegan-Michael Key:

While Burns, Bart and Homer deal with the shadiness of the music industry, Lisa has caught the interest of the richest kid in town and heads down a risky journey. Elsewhere, Marge opens an obscure boutique store in the all-new “The Great Phatsby.”

THE SIMPSONS airs Sunday, Jan. 15 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
