DALLAS (AP) – Baylor loves Lil’ Wayne’s tune “Green and Yellow,” a remix he made for the Green Bay Packers during their run to the Super Bowl.
But they have a request.
They want the rap star to pen a version for them as they try to make their second straight Final Four.
“Come on Lil’ Wayne, you need to go ahead and put a little Baylor in there for us,” said star Brittney Griner, who has the tune on her playlist.
Although Baylor’s colors are actually green and gold, Griner and the team are fans of the song because its title so closely matches their hues. “Green and Yellow” is a remix Lil’ Wayne made of Wiz Khalifa’s hit “Black and Yellow.”
“When I first heard that song: ‘I was like, oh that’s Baylor right there,” Griner said excitedly when asked what she thought about the song.
Baylor’s Brooklyn Pope is an aspiring rapper and was playing another Lil’ Wayne song on her iPod Monday morning. She too wishes the New Orleans rapper would give the Bears a shoutout with a remix of “Green and Yellow” geared toward them.
After all, they are the only team in women’s basketball with a player who has dunked this season.
“He wasn’t speaking to us, but he should,” Pope said. “Lil’ Wayne should make a Baylor song. We have Brittney Griner on our team, that’s pretty entertaining in itself.”
If Lil’ Wayne were to remix the song for the Lady Bears, there’s a good chance coach Kim Mulkey would not be a fan of it. Both players groaned about Mulkey’s musical offerings, which include playing Rascal Flatts songs during every practice.
Griner said the country tunes don’t really get them amped up for games.
“Definitely we would like to listen to more rap,” she said.
