Lil Wayne is responsible for the opening theme music to “Skip and Shannon: Undisputed,” a new sports talk show hosted by Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe on Fox Sports 1. Wayne also stars in the opening sequence, which lasts around 40 seconds. It was thought that the clip spanned the entirety of the theme song, which is titled “No Mercy,” but it turns out that a full version, spanning about 2:30 in runtime, has now been released as Wayne’s latest single. By whom? The record label he’s been with since age 11, of course.
Despite Wayne trying more desperately than ever to free himself from his confining contract, it seems that all of his songs still have to pass through the clenched palms of Birdman. “No mercy,” Wayne repeats three times on the hook, “And I won’t back down.” The song feels ironic considering Wayne’s predicament, though it looks like he’ll continue to fight Birdman until he gets his freedom, even if that means dropping music through his former father figure’s label to do so.
