Nicki Minaj, Kanye West, and Bruno Mars Get Animated for ‘Cleveland Show’

The Cleveland Show

The hip-hop Illuminati is taking control of your television this fall. Kanye West, Nicki Minaj, Bruno Mars, ?uestlove, and will.i.am star in the long-awaited episode of “The Cleveland Show” entitled “Menace II Secret Society.”

The poster for the season premiere was revealed at Comic-Con (via EW.com), showing animated versions of the music superstars alongside Cleveland Brown and his family (check out Rallo donning a Nicki Minaj wig).

The episode was first reported about last summer. “We have an episode where Kanye and will.i.am, playing himself, and Nicki Minaj, playing herself, and Bruno Mars, playing himself, and ?uestlove—they’re all part of the rap Illuminati, the secret group that controls pop culture,” said Mike Henry, who voices Cleveland on the show.

Executive producer Rich Appel explained the plot. “Cleveland inadvertently breaks into it and then it’s how he will either bring them down or they’ll bring him down,” he said. “We have a couple of original songs with Kanye and will and Bruno, I mean, all of them, it was great.”

The season premiere of “The Cleveland Show” airs October 7 on Fox.

    @Outspoken @HeavyHeavy, Yes Nicki is lighter than she was during her Mixtape days but she was never brown skinned she was like dark carmel and I think now she just wears foundation to seem a bit lighter or it could just be lighting in certain situations all skin tones in the african american family appear different in pictures etc due to camera etc…

    Kimmy Reply:

    @Sassy, You obviously have some issues Nicki doesn’t try to portray any other race but black I will give you she seems to have gotten lighter in tone but that could be because of light etc in certain places because I see pictures all the time where she seems darker in one image and lighter in the other but for you to say she trying to be a different ethic besides Trinidadian/black you are crazy and ignorant

  25. Black Pantha

    Yes, let’s continue to allow privileged white men make a mockery of African-American culture. This entire show is predicated on the fact that Cleveland is black, and his family is expected to act in a certain manner. THIS IS SHAMEFUL.
