Lil Wayne has criticized the Green Bay Packers for their decision to keep Aaron Rodgers despite his poor performance on the field.
Tunechi expressed his frustrations with the Wisconsin NFL team on Twitter after the team suffered an excruciating 15-9 loss against their division rival Detroit Lions.
“RIP to the season we should have gotten rid of 12 before the season,” Wayne wrote on Twitter, referring to Rodgers’ number.
RIP to the season, we should have dropped 12 before the season.

Wayne has long been a fan of the Packers and dropped the song “Green & Yellow” in 2011 to support the team during their game against the Pittsburgh Steelers for the Vince Lombardi Trophy.
In an earlier interview with Fox News, Wayne said he grew up a Packers fan and the team’s merchandise was worn frequently.
“When you from the hood, towels and all that crap don’t get hung up, nailed to walls. It gets used,” Weezy said. “So every day I actually used the Green Bay towel, drank from that Green Bay cup, ate from that Green Bay bowl.”
Rodgers appeared to partially agree with Wayne’s assessment of the situation, saying during the post-match press conference on Sunday that his team needed to “dig deep” to turn the season around. The Packers are now 3-6 on the season.
“I had some s—ty throws, for sure,” Rodgers added.
Lil Wayne is fresh on his Lil Weezyana Festival, which went off without a hitch in the rap star’s hometown of New Orleans, Louisiana in late October.
Tunechi reunited with Young Money for a headline performance and surprised fans when Drake came waltzing onto the stage. The duo performed a few of their hits together, including “She Will” and “The Motto,” while Drizzy ran through “Knife Talk,” “Jimmy Cooks,” “In My Feelings,” “Nonstop” and “God’s Plan.”
Rick RossCam’ron, Rob 49, Babyface Ray, Neno and Mellow Rackz also performed.
Meanwhile, Wayne was recently honored with its own exhibition in National Museum of African American Music (NMAAM). The Nashville, Tennessee exhibit hosted an event where fans could come and see artifacts donated by Tunechi, such as his Grammy for Rap Album of the Year, his BET “I Am Hip-Hop” Award, a handwritten letter from Rikers Island and an original CD of his great debut album, Tha Block is hot.
“I am very grateful to work with NMAAM and show students how hip-hop has had such a huge impact on culture,” Wayne said in a statement. “Shout out to NMAAM for all the birthday love.”
The exhibit arrived just days after Lil Wayne celebrated his 40th birthday on September 27, together with many of his closest friends. Kanye West, Drake, Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown, 2 ChainzCam’ron, Missy Elliott, Snoop Dogg, NBA YoungBoy, DJ Khaled, Janet Jackson and dozens of others also shouted out the legendary MC on his special day.
