Battle of the bands? Not quite.
In one corner, there’s Lil Wayne, holding it down for the Green Bay Packers with “Green and Yellow.”
“This ain’t a diss song,” Wayne clarifies right off the top. “But um…You know what it is, I’m a cheese-head….I put it down/representing for my team/I’m in green and yellow, green and yellow, green and yellow,” he raps.
Of course, Khalifa’s track has inspired a host of other adaptations, not least of which being "White and Purple (Northwestern Remix)" created by Chet Hanks (stage name: Chet Haze), the son of actress Rita Wilson and Tom Hanks.
Chet, a 20-year-old student at Northwestern University, recently told the New York Daily News that he's "getting a lot of love around campus” for the track. His parents are proud of his musical forays as well: “One of the reasons I'm especially so excited right now is because I do have the support of my family ... and they’re just as excited as I am," Chet said.
And that’s not all: For the pint-sized, there’s 10-year-old Lyrikkal’s “Pink & Purple,” hyping up her “pink bike” and “purple skates.”
For the romantic, R&B singer Kevin Cossom has remixed "Black and Yellow" into a song about a proposal. And if you’re really supportive of carbonated beverages, there’s also “Mello Yellow” (lyrics: “You know what I drink! Mello Yellow, Mello Yellow, Mello Yellow, Mello Yellow”).
Which song will you be playing this Sunday?
