It seems the folks at NBC have enlisted one of rap's biggest names to guest star on an upcoming episode of Law & Order: SVU, set to premiere on May 8.

This week, 2 Chainz posted pictures on his Instagram revealing his role as Calvin "Pearlie" Jones, Detective Odafin "Fin" Tutuola's (Ice-T) former partner.

2 Chainz also posted the above picture (captioned "my boo") with Mariska Hargitay, who plays Detective Olivia Benson on the show. We see you, 2 Chainz.

A guest such as 2 Chainz isn't extremely random for a show like Law & Order: SVU. Rapper Ice-T is a main character on the show, and Ludacris has a recurring role on the show his character's nephew.

But is 2 Chainz is ready for TV? He's been in the rap game for over a decade, but his acting skills have yet to be tested like they will on this show. In February, 2 Chainz made a cameo appearance on 2 Broke Girls, which you can catch above.

Do you think he'll do well on Law & Order or will this be another over-acted debacle like the Chris Brown/Rihanna episode was?
