Here are some scans of Lil Wayne (and Los Angeles Laker Kobe Bryant) in the December 2009/January 2010 issue of VIBE Magazine, on stands and in circulation now.

Initial reports suggested that Wayne would be portraying Jesus Christ in a voice over role in T-Pain‘s upcoming Cartoon Network special called the “Return of Freaknik.” But TV execs have clarified his role and said that he won’t be playing the role of biblical figure Jesus Christ after all.

TV bosses have laughed off reports Lil Wayne is set to play Jesus Christ in a new animated show, insisting his character simply shares his name with the Son of God. It was recently announced the star would lend his voice to “Return of Freaknik,” a one-hour special being produced for America’s Adult Swim network by fellow rapper T-Pain.

Earlier reports suggested Wayne would play Jesus Christ, but TV bosses insist his character is an up-and-coming rapper called Jesus.
A spokesperson for the network explains, “Lil Wayne’s character is still evolving. All we can say is that he is named Jesus and not Jesus Christ.”
