The rapper gets animated for a special episode of Nickelodeon's 'Sanjay and Craig.'

Prepare to see Snoop Dogg in a whole new way.

The iconic rapper is lending his signature voice -- and likeness -- to
Nickelodeon’s animated buddy comedy, Sanjay
and Craig
, during a very special episode airing on May 17. 


Snoop will appear as “Street Dogg,” a fun, friendly rapper who
moves in next door to Sanjay (30 Rock’s
Maulik Pancholy) and his anthropomorphic pet snake, Craig (@midnight host Chris Hardwick). And while in the suburbs, Street
Dogg finds some time to drop “funky, fresh flow.”

In fact, Street Dogg will swap rhymes with Megan Sparkles, Sanjay’s
over-enthusiastic friend voiced by Linda Cardellini (Bloodline). The actress recently told ETonline that rapping with musician
was a highlight. “I’m actually cartoon rapping with Snoop Dogg, which is
something I never thought I’d be able to do that in my career,” she said.

The 43-year-old rapper joins a long list of guest stars,
which includes Workaholics’ Adam DeVine,
the foul-mouthed chef Anthony Bourdain, and Tony Hale. Who said cartoons were only
for kids?
