This week, in the wonderful world of Tumblr blogs we never knew were possible but are totally thankful for, it’s Aziz Ansari photoshopped on the cover of your favorite hip-hop albums. Entitled emceezansari, the anonymous blog does a remarkable (and, yes, hilarious) job of superimposing Ansari’s humorous face on album covers.
Selections thus far include Nicki Minaj’s Pink Friday, Dr. Dre’s The Chronic and The Notorious B.I.G.’s Ready To Die.
My pick for the most outlandish (and, yes, hilarious) is the mock-up of Maybach Music Group’s Self Made Vol. 2. In the new version, Ansari becomes every face in the super crew, including Rick Ross.
The rap-loving comedian and “Parks & Rec” star recently discovered the site and has been reblogging and shouting out the covers on his own popular Tumblr. “Thanks to whoever made this blog!!!,” he wrote along with the link.
Check out the full collection to date.
