Lil Wayne was not going to be left out of the frenzy of the “Black & Yellow” remixes nor the Super Bowl, so killed two birds with one stone.
Early this morning (February 3), the recently released spitter dropped “Green & Yellow,” a tribute to the Green Bay Packers (whose colors are green and yellow), as they prepare to take on the Pittsburgh Steelers (whose colors are black and yellow) in this weekend’s Super Bowl. Well-known to be an avid sports fan, Weezy again displayed his sports knowledge on the track, dropping multiple on-point references to the game, the teams and their players. Check out a few of the examples below.
“Terrible Towels, that shit’s boring/We got the ball, you know we scoring”
“They call him Big Ben, but he weak though/We in Dallas but we Lambeau Leap ho”
“Long hair, don’t care—Clay Matthews/We shittin’ on these fools, no bathroom”
“We knocked the Eagles and the Falcons and the Bears off/Now we about to cut Troy Polamalu’s hair off”
Super Bowl LXV is set to air this Sunday, February 6 at 6:30 p.m. EST on Fox.
