Lil Wayne's Jimi Hendrix Vibe Cover and Ten Stars He Should Emulate Next

Lil Wayne, the hottest of the Hot Boys, dressed up as fire worshiper/guitar rock god Jimi Hendrix for the latest issue of Vibe. Everyone's known for a while the Tunechi is a multitasking, multimillionaire superstar. In between guesting on everybody's hit single, he's done rock 'n' roll, he's unleashed a line of blunt wraps, and he's released his newest album, Tha Carter IV.

Weezy's face is a work of pop-culture art. Besides the tattoos and behind the dreads, there's a roadworn face that's full of joy, sorrow, and slickness. To borrow from Carter's lyrical canon, his face is beyond beauty. Now that he's tackled Jimi, we'd like to see him emulate some classic celebrity magazine covers.

Here are ten expert Photoshop jobs anticipating the many other costume choices he could try in the future.
