Last week, the internet declared Deion Sanders the coolest coach in college sports when the Wu-Tang Clan showed up to support the Colorado Buffaloes. However, Coach Prime was just getting started. On Saturday, September 16, he invited actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, footballer Rob “Gronk” Gronkowski, and rapper Lil Wayne to join the team as they faced off against Colorado State.
Lil Wayne surprised the crowd by leading the Buffs onto the field with a performance of his song “Ride for My N****s (Sky is the Limit)” from his classic mixtape, Da Drought 3. A video shared on the team’s official X (formerly Twitter) feed shows Wayne energetically bouncing around the field as the crowd revels in the excitement.
Fans watching from home praised Coach Sanders for using his industry connections to draw attention to his team. “Buffaloes bringing out everything,” one user commented. Another simply wrote, “Absolutely insane!!!!”
Earlier in the day, Lil Wayne performed a special pre-show in the stadium’s parking lot. As a token of appreciation, Coach Sanders presented Wayne with a custom Colorado Buffaloes jersey bearing his nickname, Tunechi. Lil Wayne wore this jersey during his performance leading the team out of the tunnel.
