It was possible to question Lil Wayne's rooting allegiances in the Elite Eight due to his vocal support for Miami's Cavinder twins.
That's anything but true for the Final Four, with the Louisiana rap legend narrating the LSU Tigers' hype video ahead of a showdown with 1 seed Virginia Tech in Dallas.
“A lot can change in 2 years," Lil Wayne says as the video begins. "All you have to do is believe.”

The video then cuts back to Kim Mulkey's introductory press conference when she announced her goal: To hang banners and return LSU women's basketball to a championship-winning program.
The rest is summed up by the Lil Wayne as a montage of clips and highlights from the past two seasons plays.
“In 2 years, we can raise a statue and cut down nets. You can find a new home or return to where it all started. You can respect the past, embrace the future, piece it together -- come a long way in two years," he continues. "From watching the dance, to leading it. From witnessing history to making it. From March sadness to March badness. After 2 years of building and 2 years of battling. After 2 years of sellouts and 2 years of sparkles. After 2 years of dancing and 2 years of dreaming. Two games away from one shining moment. A lot can change in 2 years.
"All you have to do is believe," he concludes. "Geaux Tigers."
It was the latest in a series of impressive hype videos from the LSU video team, drawing some flashbacks to the ultra-hype-inducing videos from the LSU football title campaign in 2019 where Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson could be heard narrating, among others.
That team won it all, and it's the script this year's LSU women are hoping to follow, though in more of an underdog fashion. They enter as a 3 seed and the lowest remaining seed in the tournament. On the other side of the bracket, 1 seed South Carolina will face 2 seed Iowa.
It all starts at 6 p.m., Friday on ESPN.
