Lil Wayne went above and beyond for friend and 'Undisputed' host Skip Bayless' 69th birthday.

According to Bayless, the New Orleans native, whose 'No Mercy' song serves as 'Undisputed's' opening theme song, sent him four pairs of shoes, which included two pairs of Jordans, one pair of Nikes and a pair of Kawhi Leonard's New Balance shoes, which co-host, Pro Football Hall of Famer Shannon Sharpe, has previously referred to as "orthopedic shoes."

"Lil Wayne went a lil overboard for my bday, sending me 4 pairs of sneakers. But 1 pair was a big gotcha because it came from a man who LOVES his Lakers. He sent a pair of what Shannon calls “orthopedic shoes” - new Kawhi’s from New Balance. An inspired touché. You got me, my man," Bayless tweeted.

Bayless has been vocal with both criticism and support for Leonard over the years, having previously mocked the NBA champion with the nickname "No. 2" after leaving the San Antonio Spurs, then claiming he "won him back" while wearing the forward's Los Angeles Clippers jersey during an episode of 'Undisputed' on October 31, 2019.

Bayless has also been known to wear Jordan apparel and has famously referred to himself as "Drip Bayless."

Bayless and Lil Wayne have shared a friendship for several years, which dated back to the rapper appearing on ESPN's 'First Take' alongside Bayless prior to the analyst's move to FOX Sports in 2016.

Lil Wayne has since made several appearances alongside Bayless and Sharpe on 'Undisputed' over the years.
