For those of you sitting on pins and needles waiting to hear who rapper Lil Wayne is rooting for in the Super Bowl, you may exhale. Weezy recently released a track titled “Green and Yellow,” a response to, and remix of, the Wiz Khalifa track “Black and Yellow,” which has become an anthem for Pittsburgh Steelers fans throughout the season.
So Lil Wayne--from New Orleans--is apparently a Packers fan. Weird, we know.
Anyway, unlike Wiz Khalifa’s offering, which doesn’t so much as contain the words “Pittsburgh” or “Steelers,” “Green and Yellow” is aimed directly at the game between the Packers and Steelers scheduled for this Sunday at Cowboys Stadium in North Texas. If you don’t mind salty language, check the song out on YouTube. But for those of you with sensitive ears, we’ve summarized some of the track’s more salient points here:
*Wayne is a self-described “Cheesehead.”
*Wayne believes Aaron Rodgers deserves the MVP award.
*Wayne believes the Pittsburgh Steelers are “nothin’” but a Super Bowl ring--that’s stuntin’.
*Wayne purportedly rolls with more bloods than a blood vessel.
*Wayne believes Steelers’ cornerback Ike Taylor will give up a touchdown reception
*Wayne believes that the Packers will “toast” the Steelers like Pop Tarts
*Wayne acknowledges that they call him “Big Ben” but contends that “he’s weak though.”
*Wayne finds Terrible Towels “boring.”
*If the Packers win, Wayne plans on having a party, and smoking a cigar like Vince Lombardi
It’s too early to gauge public reception for the track, but we would bet Arlington Mayor Robert Cluck isn’t a fan. This is because Wayne refers to the game as being played in Dallas.
Arlington, Wayne. Mayor Cluck would like to remind you that the game’s in Arlington.
