Bayless and Lil Wayne: A Dynamic Duo for ‘Undisputed’
The popular morning debate show, ‘Undisputed,’ anchored by Skip Bayless, made its much-anticipated return this Monday. Following the exit of the iconic co-host Shannon Sharpe, the show took a brief hiatus during the summer months only to return with a Lil Wayne penless theme.
A Dynamic Trio Joins Bayless
The premiere episode saw a fresh ensemble as Keyshawn Johnson, Michael Irvin, and Richard Sherman teamed up with Bayless. The episode was not without hiccups, as Bayless occasionally found himself overshadowed amidst the energetic exchanges.
Lil Wayne: His Musical Touch
One of the standout moments from the show’s return was the unveiling of its new theme song. The “Good Morning” track was crafted by the hip-hop maestro, Lil Wayne. Not only does the song set the tone for the show, but it also features a music video where Bayless makes a special cameo. Listen to the new theme song below:
