The Grammy Award-winning rapper was tuned in to the women’s Sweet 16 games on Friday.

Rapper Lil Wayne was locked into the 2023 NCAA Women’s Tournament when he recognized both No.9 seed Miami and No.3 seed LSU in their Sweet 16 victories on Friday.

The Grammy Award-winning artist FaceTimed the Hurricanes’ Cavinder sisters, Haley and Hanna, after their upset 70-65 win over No.4 seed Villanova. Hanna tweeted a photo of the call with her sister and the New Orleans rapper.

Hanna had seven points and four rebounds while Haley had two points and two assists in Miami’s win. Then, in a strike even closer to home, Lil Wayne shouted out LSU star Angel Reese as the AP All-American recorded 17 points, 12 rebounds and three blocks in the Tigers’ 66–63 win against the No. 2 seed, Utah. The Tigers earned a spot in this year’s Elite Eight for the first time in 15 years.

“Angel fkn Reese!!!!!! Home team,” Wayne tweeted.

With Miami and LSU victorious in the Greenville 2 region, the Hurricanes (22-12) and Tigers (31-2) will now meet in an Elite Eight matchup on Sunday. Wayne is likely tuned to see two of the most exciting teams in this year’s tournament with the possibility of one earning a spot in this year’s Final Four in Dallas.
