Get ready for an animated version of a beloved Twin Cities rapper.

Atlantic Records signee Lizzo recently confirmed that she'll appear on the new Adult Swim TV show "Brad Neely's Harg Nallin’ Sclopio Peepio."

"I’m really excited about being a cartoon, so that won’t be the last time I do that," she told City Pages. "So, I’m just exploring what it means to be me."

The show is described by the network as "a new quarter-hour animated sketch show created by Neely that features a collection of frenetic one-off bits, shorts, and songs, all filtered through Neely's signature visual style."

According to iMDB, Neely's TV credits also include working as a consultant for "South Park," and creating Adult Swim's "China, IL." Here's a trailer:
