What a way to bring in the New Year.

The Simpsons have failed hip-hop in the past with characters that I vowed to not mention. But, thankfully the producers are rectifying the tragic events of the past and including a hip-hop themed episode to bring in the new year.

According to sources, The Simpson is going to air " a hip-hop homage to The Great Gatsby" in January featuring big name hip hop legends, Snoop Dogg, Common and RZA. Dubbed "The Great Gatsby," the special episode centers around a shady hip-hop mogul that scams Mr. Burns and plans to overtake the town's nuclear plant. Sounds crazy right? I say no. It just sounds like the Simpsons.
