Nicki Minaj and will.i.am join The Cleveland Show

The artists have loaned their voices to an episode titled Menace II Secret Society, which features Kanye West as the leader of an underground cult, and they will also appear alongside cartoon versions of singer Bruno Mars and hip-hop musician Ahmir '?uestlove' Thompson, reports TVGuide.com.

The star-studded season four premiere, created by Family Guy star Seth MacFarlane, will air on 21 October (12).

West is no stranger to the hit show - he previously voiced the character of Kenny West, the coolest kid in fictional Stoolbend, in 2010.
