It’s been long rumored that a secret society controlling pop culture exists and it was finally exposed last night on Fox’s “The Cleveland Show.” Kanye West, Nicki Minaj, Bruno Mars, will.i.am, and The Roots’ ?uestlove lent their voices to the season premiere of the animated series.
In the episode, entitled “Menace II Secret Society,” Cleveland discovers the hip-hop Illuminati fronted by Kanye, reprising his role as Kenny West. After growing tired of his antics (“His ego got out of control, and this is coming from rappers,” says will.i.am), his fellow members plot to end his career with some help from Cleveland, who sets him up with his son Cleveland Jr. and his polka band. Will Kenny’s legacy be tarnished or will the plan backfire?
There are also several musical moments from the animated gang and some quotables from Kanye.
