Our very own Keegan-Michael Key is taking on his latest project with great stride — voicing the character of "Jazzy James" on the beloved show The Simpsons. Jazzy James is a washed-up rapper who now sells high-end candles, because of course.

Key's role in the January 15 episode of the Simpsons is a special one. The comedian also joins Snoop Dogg, RZA, and Common as guest stars in the episode. The episode is a Great Gatsby-themed except it is called "The Great Phatsby." Get it?
