Lil' Wayne & Ghostface Killah Get Animated For New Season Of "The Boondocks"

ImageLil' Wayne, Snoop Dogg, Ghostface Killah and Cee-Lo Green are all set to lend their voices to the upcoming season of the animated series "The Boondocks."


The controversial show, which is based on the comic strip by Aaron McGruder, centers around a 10-year-old black radical named Huey Freeman, his younger, rap-obsessed, brother Riley (both voiced by Regina King), and their grandfather Robert "Granddad" Freeman (played by John Witherspoon).

Other celebrities who will lend their voices to the second season include Donald Faison ("Scrubs"), Mo'Nique ("The Parkers") and Tichina Arnold ("Everybody Hates Chris"). Mos Def, Xzibit, Charlie Murphy, MTV's Sway and Katt Williams, who all appeared in the debut season, will also be reprising their roles.

Highlights of the upcoming season include the family going to see "Soul Plane 2," A Pimp Named Slickback (voiced by Katt Williams) counseling the Freemans' neighbor who fears he is losing his wife to Usher, and Granddad feuds with a famous rapper named "Thugnificent" who moves into the neighborhood.

The envelope pushing series was a bonafide hit with its debut season , earning a prestigious Peabody Award earlier this year.

''The Boondocks" hits the small screen on October 8 at 11:30 p.m on The Cartoon Network.
