Snoop Dogg as Street Dogg on Nickelodeon's "Sanjay & Craig"

We've seen Snoop Dogg in some pretty animated situations. But perhaps none top his turn as long-limbed, smooth-talking, bike-riding rapper Street Dogg in his guest role on an upcoming episode of Nickelodeon's animated series Sanjay & Craig.

Snoop Dogg Is 'Cream' of the Crop on Twitter Top Tracks

In the episode, which premieres May 17 at 7:30 p.m., rap icon Street Dogg moves next door to the 12-year-old protagonist and his pet snake. He's come to suburbia to escape the bright lights of L.A. and make some new music -- and his alter-ego Snoop busts out some G-rated jams on the new song "On Our Block," where his lyrics include: "This place feels like a nice change of pace/ See on my block it's all about cars and gold chains."

"Snoop learned the material on the spot -- and blew our minds," says show creator Jim Dirschberger. "He owned the material and expanded on dialog and musical numbers. He's an excellent actor with a great sense of humor. Best of all, he is a kid at heart." Check out Billboard's exclusive sneak peek here:

Nickelodeon isn't the first TV stop for the rapper. In March, Snoop guested as himself on the season 1 finale of Fox's Empire, where he performed new single "Peaches and Cream," and he's been vocal about returning for another stint on the show.
