Lil Wayne has signed on to join Skip Bayless as a weekly co-host on the rebooted ‘Undisputed‘ show that airs on FS1. In a recent episode of ‘The Skip Bayless Show‘ (August 3), Bayless announced that Weezy will appear every Friday for segments as his schedule allows him.
“[Wayne] is heart and soul into the relaunch as I am. And by the way, bigger picture, Wayne has agreed to every Friday going forward to do a segment with me live.”
“He might not always be in studio depending on his schedule but he’s going to join me every Friday for a segment every Friday for a segment I don’t know — 12 to 15 minutes. If he’s hot if he’s rolling, maybe we’ll keep him a couple segments if he has the time.”
To add even more excitement to the relaunch, the Young Money rapper recorded a new theme song for the revamp, which Bayless proclaims is “even better than the original.”
The New Orleans rap superstar will make his debut as co-host on August 28th, when ‘Undisputed‘ returns in time for the start of football season.
“I like to say I see things and say things others don’t. Wayne is my match. That’s why I love him so much. That’s why we text so much about sports. We’re kindred spirits, but we do see things differently, but very deeply.”
Former long-time partner Shannon Sharpe left the show earlier this year; Bayless was left searching for someone to fill in the role and it appears Wayne is the perfect quick fit. In fact, over his past appearances as a guest host, Tunechi has proven himself quite adept at debating hot topics with Bayless head-to-head.
