Back in 2011, mere days before Green Bay faced off against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLV, Packers superfan Lil Wayne released the hype track "Green and Yellow," a cheesehead-themed remix of Wiz Khalifa's "Black and Yellow." Aaron Rodgers and company would proceed to win that Super Bowl – and while we don't have evidence that the pump-up song was what tipped the Packers over the top, we don't have evidence that it WASN'T either.
And so, on the eve of another hopefully Super Bowl-bound playoff run, why not try it again?
Indeed, as he announced Friday on Fox Sports' "Undisputed," the rapper released an updated remix of his beloved Green Bay banger, again titled "Green and Yellow." Have a listen below:
I don't know if it's better than the original, but I do know this: It has to be the first and only rap song to feature references to Mason Crosby and "the Rodgers rate" from the State Farm commercials. Oh, and I know that, between yesterday's piece from Robert Tonyan and this song, I'm ready to run through an entire building of brick walls. BRING ON THE CLUB-HEADED MOUNTAIN SHEEP!
Anyways, hopefully the song works its 2011 magic when the Pack take on the Los Angeles Rams at 3:35 p.m. tomorrow on FOX.
As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.
When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
