Lil Wayne’s love for sports and music collide once again.
Weezy has been tapped by Fox Sports to craft a theme song for the network’s new debate series, “Skip and Shannon: Undisputed,” and he doesn’t disappoint.
Over a thumping instrumental, the Young Money boss raps about the show’s focus. “Let’s go face to face,” he rhymes with just a hint of Auto-Tune. “I embrace debate / I don’t make mistakes / I just make my case.”

Host Skip Bayless, who built rapport with Tunechi at his former home ESPN, explained why Wayne was perfect for this job.
“Lil Wayne has been a friend and frequent guest on my show and I’ve told him how honored I am to have such a legend create such a great song for our new show ‘Undisputed’ on FS1,” Bayless told Billboard.
In a behind-the-scenes video, Wayne praised Bayless too. “I like the fact that he’s super intelligent,” he explained. “He probably came up with the term ‘debate’ and he can debate his ass off.”
The track was written and produced by Jingle Punks’ president and CCO, Jared Gutstadt. Fans can expect it to drop on iTunes within the next month via Cash Money Records.
