Lil Wayne releases’ Green and Yellow ‘remix ahead of Packers’ playoffs

Must read


Packers super-fan Lil Wayne released a remix of his hype song “Green and Yellow” ahead of the Packers playoffs and – unsurprisingly – he’s slapping.

Lil Wayne originally released the song with the same title in 2011, days before Green Bay’s Super Bowl 45 game with the Steelers. In a moment of artistic appreciation – and sense of the game – he sampled the song “Black and Yellow” from Pittsburgh fan Wiz Khalifa to make the track. Both teams used the respective tracks as fight songs for the game, but it was the Packers who prevailed, 31-25, to win their first Super Bowl since the 1996 season.

The new rendition includes nods to several Packers legends and players on the team’s 2020 roster, including running back Aaron Jones, wide receiver Davante Adams, offensive lineman David Bakhtiari, tight end Robert Tonyan, linebackers Preston Smith and Za’Darius Smith, safety Darnell Savage – even kicker Mason Crosby.

Lil Wayne also includes several references to quarterback Aaron Rodgers, including his ability to draw offside teams, his fondness for Hail Marys, and the State Farm Rodgers Rate commercial.

Here’s the song in all its cheesy glory:

Lil Wayne discussed his production of the remix in a Friday episode of “Undisputed”, saying he spent three days on the song when it would normally take hours – a testimonial from his Packers fandom:

It remains to be seen whether Rodgers and Co. can win another Super Bowl with the song “Green and Yellow” behind their back. The Packers (13-3) are the NFC playoff seed and have the second best odds (+500) to make Super Bowl 55. They only trail the 14-2 Chiefs (+190).

Green Bay kicks off their playoff push on Saturday against Jared Goff and the rams at 4:35 p.m. ET on FOX.
