The Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers intense rivalry on the football field inspired a Wisconsin radio station to actually edit a song from a onetime Minneapolis-based rapper. Lizzo, who now lives in L.A., has a hit song called “Truth Hurts.” It has been receiving airplay on Green Bay’s WIXX-FM — incidentally the Packers’ flagship station. The song’s chorus includes the line, “New man on the Minnesota Vikings,” which is repeated three times in the song. WIXX edited the song so that instrumentals masked the words “Minnesota Vikings.” The WIXX Music Director said the station got permission from the label to tweak the song. And said he thought Minnesota based radio stations would have done the same had the situation been reversed.
Here’s the official video for the song (heads up it’s got some NSFW language in it).
