MILWAUKEE - One of the world's most famous Green Bay Packers fans has released a new song in hopes of hyping the team up for the playoffs.
Rapper Lil Wayne released a new take on his prior Packers-themed hit "Green And Yellow" on Friday night, Jan. 15.
The new song, which shares the same title, delivers lyrics that reflect the team's cornerstone players of today. The original "Green And Yellow" was released in 2011 ahead of what ultimately became a Packers victory in Super Bowl XLV.
Lil Wayne announced that the song would be released earlier Friday on the FS1 show "Skip and Shannon: UNDISPUTED."
Lil Wayne, who was born in New Orleans, also explained how he became a fan of the Green & Gold.
"The Packers went to the Super Bowl (XXXI), the Super Bowl was in New Orleans," he said. "(My father) was there and when the Packers won that game, he came home with Green Bay championship towels, Super Bowl towels, cups, hats, everything.
"From that moment on I was a Green Bay Packers fan."
