Packers superfan Lil Wayne has released a remix of his “Green and Yellow” hype track ahead of the Packers’ playoff push and — no surprise — it slaps.
Wayne originally released the song with the same title in 2011, days before Green Bay’s Super Bowl 45 matchup with the Steelers. In a moment of artistic appreciation — and gamesmanship — he sampled Steelers fan Wiz Khalifa’s song “Black and Yellow” to make the track. The Packers later won their first Super Bowl since the 1996 season by beating Pittsburgh 31-25.
The new rendition includes nods to several Packers legends and players on the team’s 2020 roster, including running back Aaron Jones, 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 teams offside, his penchant for Hail Marys and the State Farm Rodgers Rate commercial.
Here’s the song in all its cheesehead glory:
Whether Rodgers and Co. can win another Super Bowl with the “Green and Yellow” song at their back remains to be seen. The Packers (13-3) are the top seed in the NFC playoffs and have the second-best odds (+500) to make Super Bowl 55. They only trail the 14-2 Chiefs (+190).
Green Bay begins its playoff push on Saturday against Jared Goff and the Rams at 4:35 p.m. ET on FOX.
