Lil Wayne has finally dropped a new song about the Green Bay Packers just before the divisional playoff game against the Los Angeles Rams on Saturday.

You can listen to "Green & Yellow" here or on your preferred music store. It is the latest version of the original song released by Lil Wayne back in 2011.

Hours before the release, the rapper was a guest on Skip and Shannon: UNDISPUTED on Friday, and gave a few details about the song honoring the Packers.

"I took a lot of time into it. I worked for three days, too. I don't do that, so," Lil Wayne told the hosts.

Lil Wayne says he became a Packers fan when the team went to Super Bowl XXXI against the New England Patriots in his home town of New Orleans in 1997. The Packers won the game, and his father came back with Packers trinkets and apparel we know all too well.

"From that moment, I was a Green Bay Packers fan. That game mattered," Lil Wayne says.

This is the second time Lil Wayne has released a Packers song, after dropping in 2011 "Green & Yellow" - which just so happens to be the same year the Packers won Super Bowl XLV.
