Lil Wayne’s “No Mercy” has been announced as the opening theme song for the new TV sports talk show Skip and Shannon: Undisputed, reports Billboard
The sports-debate series airs live on Tuesday mornings at 9:30 a.m. ET on FOX Sports and on the program, moderator Joy Taylor will discuss the latest in sports with former ESPN pundit Skip Bayless and NFL Hall-of-Famer Shannon Sharpe.
A 40-second clip includes shots of the contestants in the middle of a heated debate as well as Lil Wayne shirtless and rapping: “Let’s go face to face/ I embrace debate/ I don’t make mistakes/ I just make my case.”
In addition to providing the show’s theme song, Weezy is scheduled to appear on the debut episode. Lil Wayne is no stranger to sports debates, having previously appeared as a guest on Bayless’ former ESPN shows.
“Lil Wayne has been a friend and frequent guest on my show, and I’ve told him how honored I am to have such a legend create such a great song for our new show,” Bayless told Billboard.
Replied Wayne: “I like the fact that [Bayless is] super intelligent … He probably came up with the term ‘debate,’ and he can debate his ass off.”
The full version of “No Mercy” is scheduled to be released later this month.
For now, here’s the preview:
