According to reports, soon to be incarcerated rapper Lil Wayne will play the role of Jesus Christ in an upcoming cartoon that will feature rapper T-Pain.

Julia Beverly from Ozone Magazine recently revealed additional details on the show when clips of it were shown at T-Pain's Christmas Party that took place on December 23rd .

"Some Cartoon Network/Adult Swim execs came through to display clips from Pain's upcoming cartoon special Freaknik, which airs on March 21," wrote Beverly. "In it, Lil Wayne provides the voice for Jesus Christ (I'm not kidding) and performs a music video for Ghetto Commandments."

The cartoon was in the planning stages in Fall 2008, when Complex magazine had an interview with Adult Swin Creative Director, Jake Escobedo. "Basically it was a Black Spring Break that went down in Atlanta and got shut down back in '98 or '99," said Escobedo regarding Freaknik, the show's inspiration.

"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. 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 its amazing."
