Listen To Lil Wayne's 2021 Version Of "Green And Yellow" Green Bay Packers Anthem
The Green Bay Packers are in the hunt for the Lombardi Trophy yet again and Lil Wayne is here to cheer them on yet again. The prolific rapper rereleased his Packers anthem, "Green and Yellow," Friday night to hype up Aaron Rodgers and squad as they face the Los Angeles Rams on Saturday in the NFC Divisional round.
The new "Green and Yellow" celebrates quarterback Aaron Rodgers, wide receiver Davante Adams and linebackers Preston and Za'Darius Smith. Weezy also shouts out Packers legends, saying he's shining like Bart Starr, number 15 and and has some clever wordplay for the Cheeseheads and Alicia Keys' husband, Swizz Beatz. Tunechi of course reasserts that he's in the same league as a hip-hop great like 2Pac, except instead of Makaveli, he's Packaveli.
Lil Wayne announced the song on "Undisputed" with Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe, where he gave a glimpse into his creative process and how he strayed from his usual breakneck speed to put the proper care into the song..
"I took a lot of time into it, I worked on it for three days, too," he said. "I don't do that."
Even though he hails from New Orleans, Lil Wayne is a Cheesehead because his father attended Super Bowl XXXI where the Packers defeated the New England Patriots to win the championship. The game was played in the Big Easy and set the family tradition.
He released the original "Green and Yellow" song in 2011 as a remix of Wiz Khalifa's hit song "Black and Yellow," an ode mostly to the Pittsburgh Steelers, but also the Pittsburgh Pirates and Pittsburgh Penguins.
If you remember, nearly every sports city across the country had a remix of the "Black and Yellow" because it was so catchy and perfect, especially with the racing production by pop duo Stargate. The Denver Broncos got "Blue and Orange," the Miami Heat got "Black and Red" and one of the more famous rappers to do a version was Fabolous who gave the New York Yankees "White and Navy."
But perhaps the most powerful remix was indeed Weezy F. Baby's "Green and Yellow," which spurred on the Green Bay Packers to win Super Bowl XLV just days after it was released.
"We're trying to do it again this time," Lil Wayne said of his hopes of for his second "Green and Yellow."
