Deion Sanders Makes Rap Concert Mandatory to Support Son’s Rap Career: Report

NCAA Football: Colorado Spring Game

To say this offseason has been wild for athletes involved in the Colorado football program would be a massive understatement.

On Friday, a recent report from Athlon Sports added yet another wild storyline to the Colorado saga. Head coach Deion Sanders allegedly required players to attend a Lil Wayne rap concert and support his son Shedeur’s rap career.


“The Wayne concert was the final straw for a few players who hit the transfer portal,” a source told Athlon Sports. “When Coach Prime told us we all had to be there to support Shedeur as a rapper, they were not happy at all. To be honest, it was nothing but a huge distraction, and Daddy Ball was being played.”

Shedeur Sanders, quarterback for the Buffaloes, released a rap song earlier this offseason called “Perfect Timing,” and when Grammy-winner Lil Wayne came through Boulder to perform at the team’s spring game, Sanders opened for the legendary rapper.

While the Sanders family has found their names in headlines many times this offseason, forcing players to attend a rap concert was one of the final straws for some of the 40+ transfer portal departures. The team would go on to fill the bulk of their departures but is definitely calling into question the sustainability of rebuilding a roster each and every season through the portal.

Colorado kicks off the 2024 season on Thursday, August 29th, against the North Dakota State Bison.
