Aziz Ansari Channels Lil Wayne, Jay-Z, Nicki Minaj + More on Album Covers

Aziz Ansari Albums

Here’s a case where Photoshop is used for good, as opposed to a way to erase flaws and create impossible-to-live-up-to standards of pictorial perfection. Comedian and ‘Parks and Recreation’ star Aziz Ansari is often aligned with the rap genre, due to his 50 Cent and R. Kelly standup parodies and a cameo in the video for ‘Otis’ by Kanye West and Jay-Z. But thanks to a Emceez Ansari, a Tumblr site, he becomes Jay, Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj and more.

The site created album cover memes of Ansari, photoshopping his face onto some iconic and more recent rap covers, from ‘The Chronic’ to ‘The Blueprint’ to ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded.’

The memes are the handiwork of fans and not Ansari himself, although he did give a shout out to the nameless, faceless and creative folks who took the time to turn him into the biggest rap superstar ever. He thanked ’em, whoever they are, via his own Tumblr. We love Tumblr to Tumblr communication and creativity, which happened here!

We also love seeing Ansari as Nicki Minaj – he’s such a Barbz — and covered in blood in the Waka Flocka Flame recreation. He’s also pensive as Jay-Z and rocks Biggie’s baby afro with style.

Two words about these covers? Just brilliant.

This is also what we call a creative use of time. Which one is your favorite, PopCrushers?
