In 'Green and Yellow,' Lil Wayne declares, 'I'm a cheesehead'
With Super Bowl XLV hype heading toward its crescendo, Lil Wayne has put himself in the mix with "Green and Yellow," a track declaring his support for the Green Bay Packers with lyrics laid down over the music from Wiz Khalifa's "Black and Yellow," adopted by Pittsburgh Steelers fans.
Gotta say, we find it way beyond charming to hear Weezy declaring, "You know what it is, I'm a cheesehead. Y'all [are] Cheez Whiz."
We're guessing we won't be hearing "Green and Yellow" on national TV on Sunday -- too many bleepable moments -- but you can check it out for yourself on the New Orleans rapper's website, or listen to "Black and Yellow," depending on which team has your heart.
The Ministry has kinda been in Lil Wayne's corner for a while now, and we do love our long-haired SoCal boy Clay Matthews, but, dude -- did the "Green and Yellow" rapper just threaten to cut off Troy Polamalu's hair?
Don't mess with the hair.
For the record, 1:50 p.m.: This post originally referred to Clay Matthews as Chris Matthews. Clay Matthews is a Packers linebacker; Chris Matthews yells at people on MSNBC. And we knew that. The Ministry's penalty is 15 yards plus loss of down; thanks to @Packer Fan for blowing the whistle in comments.
