The San Francisco 49ers prevented Lil Wayne's favorite team, the Green Bay Packers, from going to the Super Bowl. So the rapper wants the Baltimore Ravens to get a little revenge on his behalf.
"I'm salty about the team that beat us, so I gotta root against them, and that team is the 49ers," he said.
But his desire isn't all based on bitterness.
"Who doesn't want to see (Ravens linebacker) Ray Lewis succeed? And also who also doesn't want to see (49ers wide receiver) Randy Moss get his first ring as well?" he said.
"I'm kind of iffy about this game. I don't mind the outcome of it, I think either or, it's gonna be beautiful for both of them."
Lil Wayne plans to be in a suite for the game -- after all, it's in his hometown. His friends and family all wanted tickets.
"I had to pay for those tickets and my team isn't even playing in that game -- ah man, that hit the pockets kind of hard," he laughed.
Lil Wayne is well-documented sports fanatic.
