He's been a rapper. He's been a beatbox instructor. Now, Biz Markie will be a cat.
Well, an animated cat – the "Just a Friend" rapper will guest star on SpongeBob SquarePants as Kenny the Cat, SpongeBob's personal hero.
According to a preview clip released by Nickelodeon, SpongeBob's esteem for Kenny will be tested by an as-yet-unknown discovery, causing Kenny to beg for the asexual sponge's forgiveness. "Above water, I'm a nobody," Markie blubbers, his heart going down south, "but down here, I'm someone special!"
The clip does not answer the question of how Kenny the Cat can breathe underwater.
Markie's episode will air on Nickelodeon on Saturday, after the Kids' Choice Awards.
