Numerous rappers love comparing stuff to other stuff. Example: “Young Money baby, big shit like a horse ass” or “I’ve got more records than the KGB.” In this occasional series, I’ll find the best comparisons involving players or teams from the NFL in rap songs. And who knows, maybe you’ll end up listening to the whole song. If you’ve got suggestions, email them to me.
Lil Wayne has released a remix of Wiz Khalifa’s “Black and Yellow,” a Pittsburgh Steelers anthem, and turned it into “Green and Yellow,” a rally song for the Green Bay Packers. I must say, it’s pretty damn good. There are multiple references to players on both teams, such as Ike Taylor, Clay Matthews, Troy Polamalu and more. Weezy even finishes out the song chanting “Go Pack Go!” This might give the momentum for the Packers to win. When one of the most popular artists right now makes a song after your team, you better not disappoint.
Also, if you’re a rapper trying to find some face time and you have at least one football comparison in any of your stuff, email me and I’ll put it up here.
