Lil Wayne endorses the Green Bay Packers with new Wiz Khalifa-inspired freestyle, 'Green and Yellow'

February 3, 2011 | 10:43 am

Kes891nc Oh, it's on. Lil Wayne has long been an avowed Cheesehead, even though he's from New Orleans. Thursday morning he dropped his endorsement for the Super Bowl, and is gunning for the Green Bay Packers: "This ain't a diss song, I just love my team. That's the team with the big G's on the helmets," he explains in the track, which he freestyled and put up on YouTube. The backing track is from Wiz Khalifa's pro-Steelers anthem, "Black and Yellow," which has become every Pennsylvanian's new favorite rap track.

"This is Packer country, where your green card?" Wayne says in his version, in the process transforming himself from a Dirty South native into a Naughty North practitioner, if only for a few days.

Alas, the rough and ready rhyme king uses way too many cuss words for us to embed the track, but you can listen to it here.
