No joke: Lil Wayne to play Jesus in new T-Pain cartoon

on January 05, 2010, 11:00am

We’re not sure how to craft this into a well-written and insightful article, so we’ll just be as blunt as possible: Lil Wayne is going to play a cartoon Jesus Christ. Hallelujah!

According to HipHopDX and HotSpotATL.com, Freaknik will be T-Pain’s Cartoon Network Adult Swim special about the raucous spring break parties that took place in Atlanta in the 1990s. Weezy’s role will be that of Jesus Christ in the parody rap video “Ghetto Commandments”. Here’s the low down from Adult Swim folks themselves.

“Basically it was a Black Spring Break that went down in Atlanta and got shut down back in ’98 or ’99. So the show is going to resurrect that, and it’s going to be starring T-Pain and Lil Wayne and all these other artists like David Banner and some other dudes,” said Adult Swim creative director Jake Escobedo. “It’s all drawn, and T-Pain plays the ghost of spring break, the Spirit of Freaknik. He brings this party back to Atlanta and the artists have done all this music for it, and it’s amazing.”

There’s not much else to say other than to park yourself in front of a TV come March 21st.

Oh, and now our lives are truly complete.
