Wiz Khalifa, Lil Wayne provide soundtrack to Super Bowl

Battle of the bands? Not quite.

Sunday’s Super Bowl XLV has inspired another sort of musical throwdown, between Wiz Khalifa’s Pittsburgh Steelers anthem “Black and Yellow” and…everyone else who can do a riff on it.

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?

    Wiz gets props for making a track that everyone wants to get on, but "Green and Yellow" is the better and the best of all the "Black and Yellow" remixes. IMO.

    No. The rea jade is just an angry white person who can not get a job because they are ignorant and uneducated. Or just a troll that you are feeding.
