Watch Lil Wayne Freestyle Over the ‘SportsCenter’ Theme Song

By Ezra Marcus

Recently Lil Wayne appeared on SportsCenter and gave us those three numbers we’ve been dying for: the release date for The Carter V.

He also took the opportunity to do what he does best, freestyling over the SportsCenter theme song.

While it may not be his best freestyle of all time (I’d have to give that honor to this one), it’s nonetheless exciting to watch. Wayne kicks off with a rather clever line: ‘I don’t give a football about what you think about Lil Tune / I’m just hoping that it’s good thoughts.”

Then he closes his eyes and unleashes a dense word-flurry: “Live on TV mama told me wear a dress shirt /I nstead I wore a t-shirt, Michael Jordan sneakers / Red Sox ball cap my dread locks fall back / I still think I’m fly, show me where the tarmac?” he asks.

Get excited for Carter V by catching the Drake Vs. Lil Wayne tour, which stops next on Aug. 15 in Cincinnati, Ohio.
