Lil Wayne dropped by ESPN’s “First Take” on Monday for an entertaining conversation about everything from Kobe to Compton. One of the first things the hosts wanted to know was how he ended up being a Green Bay Packers fan, considering that he’s from New Orleans. Wayne explained that his love for Green Bay started when he was a kid.

In 1995, the Packers came to New Orleans to play the Saints in the Super Bowl, and won. His father was at the game, and brought home “towels and cups” emblazoned with the Green Bay logo. Wayne explains that “in the ‘hood,” these towels and cups “would be put to use everyday. I used a Green Bay towel, a Green Bay cup everyday. So when the Madden game came out that year Brett was on the cover and I was a Packers fan for life.”
