Cheesehead: Why Lil Wayne Wants The Packers to Win the Superbowl

February 04, 2011



Weezy apparently wants to see what it looks like to make a grown man cry at the end of a particularly brutal workday, itself the end of a week that we spent running full bore towards the finish line of what may be the favorite issue of a magazine we have ever worked on (FADER 72 dudes! Keep your eyes glued to the internet for the announcement of its contents). With a particularly heavy heart, he talks about as emphatically as an actual blood-born Wisconsinite would about being and feeling like a "cheesehead." Wearing a green cardigan, he checked in with ESPN's First Take, to say he finished "Green and Yellow" in one evening and that he became a Packers fan when his late father came back form the 1979 Superbowl with plastic Packers dinnerware his family used for years after. He's been an earnest supporter since, and kindly set himself apart from folks who became Saints fans for one season after a stretch of poor ones. To be totally real, this weekend is the most important weekend of our lives since 1997 when the packers last took the Lombardi Trophy back to its hometown in the Frozen Tundra. Good to know we got Wayne on our side, although we gotta come out and say we got nothing but the utmost love for Wiz. "Black and Yellow" is obviously a jam, but the remix benefits from having correctly re-written lyrics. Wiz set it up, Weezy just knocked it down. Kinda exactly like what we want to see happen on the field this weekend.
