Sundance: Aziz Ansari ponders baby gifts for Blue Ivy Carter

Aziz Ansari has some baby gift ideas for Blue Ivy Carter
Funnyman Aziz Ansari is quite serious when it comes to his love of hip-hop, so naturally gifts for Beyonce and Jay-Z's new baby, Blue Ivy Carter, would be on his mind.  

The Ministry ran into Ansari preparing for a stand-up performance at Bing Bar at the Sundance Film Festival, where the Jay-Z devotee told us what he'd send off to the newborn.

"I'd get her a bib that says, 'I got 99 problems and a bib ain't one,' " said Aziz.

That's not all he'd have in store for Blue -- Aziz famously illustrated the Jay and Kanye hit "...In Paris" using iPhone emoticons. He'd like to do another featuring the newborn (who already has a music credit under her belt).

"I wanna remix, like, Drake's 'I'm On One' and have Blue on the track like waaah," he said, doing his best baby cry.

We're down, Aziz. The comedian is prepping a new comedy tour to go up on his "Parks and Recreation" hiatus, about life as he approaches 30. But for any "Parks" fans, we had to ask what how his character Tom Haverford would handle Park City.

"Tom Haverford would hit every gifting lounge possible. He wouldn't be able to get into any parties because of all the bags he'd have on him," Ansari said.
