Centered around Mr. Burns' relationship with hip hop mogul "Jay G."

"The Simpsons" is heading into its 28th season and it is finally getting it's first hour-long episode. The special episode will reportedly be titled "The Great Phatsby" and circulate around Mr. Burns friendship with the semi-fictional hip hop mogul Jay G. It will feature guest appearances from Taraji P. Henson and Keegan-Michael Key.

"The Great Phatsby" will serve as a sort of cross-promotion with the popular FOX drama "Empire." Henson will portray a character similar to Cookie Lyon, her character on FOX hit "Empire." The episode will include music from Jim Beanz, who produces music for "Empire."

This is not The Simpsons' first foray into hip hop. In 2005, they aired an episode called "Pranksta Rap," in which Bart momentarily becomes a rapper and befriends 50 Cent.

Stay tuned for more information regarding "The Great Phatsby."
