Lil Wayne, Papi rap 'HYFR' on ESPN's 'Highly Questionable'

Posted on

As Tha Carter V sits on Cash Money’s vindictive shelf, Lil Wayne has time to kill. So he popped on ESPN’s daytime show Highly Questionable on Tuesday. The highlight of his appearance came in the form of a behind-the-scenes clip of host Dan Le Batard’s dad, Papi, meekly rapping Wayne’s hook in 2011 Drake collaboration “HYFR.” The two maneuvered past the profane “F” of the titular acronym, so it’s okay for the kids.

Fun fact: This wasn’t done just because Weezy was in the house. Papi spit this bar last year, too, with a geriatric flow that makes Kurtis Blow sound modern.
