Jay-Z plays an animated version of himself in 'Secret Millionaires Club': Watch a preview here!

Posted on

Jay-Z and Kanye West are about to embark on their big Watch the Throne tour, but the next place you can see Jay-Z (well, outside of random parks in Brooklyn) is on Secret Millionaires Club, a new animated series making its debut on The Hub this Sunday, October 23.

Guided by the entrepreneurial wisdom of Warren Buffett, SMC aims to teach kids lessons from the business world, and Jigga lends his voice to encourage the club’s young members.

It’s a little surreal hearing Hova’s unmistakable voice coming out of a cartoon character, even one that looks exactly like him, but it’s a pretty excellent animated visage regardless.

Check out a preview of the episode below, featuring Iceberg Slim’s be-suited voice acting.

Not bad, right? For some reason, it feels like he was actually wearing the flesh-world version of that animated suit while he was recording his lines. Jay is Method like that.

What do you think of his foray into animated programming? What other characters would you like to see him voice besides “Jay-Z”? And how does Jigga’s contribution to Secret Millionaires Club compare to Kanye’s guest spots on The Cleveland Show? Leave your thoughts in the comments.
