After going to a party at a mansion across the lake from Mr. Burns’s mansion, Homer and Mr. Burns befriended rap mogul Jay G. The guys went around spending ridiculous amounts of money until Jay G stabbed Mr. Burns in the back by bankrupting him. In an effort to get back at Jay G, Homer and Mr. Burns enlisted Jazzy James (Keegan-Michael Key), a disgruntled ex-partner of Jay G’s, to help write a revenge rap.

Henson and Keegan-Michael Key of Key and Peele fame are set to make guest appearances along with rap royalty Snoop Dogg, Common and RZA. Snoop is as famous as it gets for rappers, and his name is synonymous with the genre for many mainstream fans.
