Deion Sanders took a side in the Drake-Kendrick Lamar beef during a May 9 appearance on the Full Send Podcast -- and many would likely argue that the Colorado football head coach took the wrong one.

While Sanders said that elements of the back-and-forth are staged, Coach Prime seemingly sided with Drake when asked by the podcast hosts who he backed between Drizzy and K-Dot; giving the hosts some "inside baseball" on rap beef in the process.

"I think it's competition," Sanders said. "I think Kendrick is a good dude. I don't think he's malicious in his attacks. I think it's just, 'Hey man, let's do this. Who's the dog?' I wish it was more, but they kept it clean. I mean say what you want, but don't allow it to evolve into a situation. And you know, the artists are never the ones that it evolves into a situation. It's the guys with the people. Those are the ones who are going to do something stupid. When's the last time you ever seen two actors fight, or two artists fight? It's the crew. Because they want to prove to that guy that they're tough.

"Man it's hard to beat Drake at anything man. Drake is Drake, man."

Colorado football head coach Deion Sanders: 'Ain't nobody want to see Lil Wayne'

Sanders would later go on to say, "with an exclamation mark," that nobody wants to see Lil Wayne. Coach Prime hyped up Weezy's four No. 1 albums ('The Carter II,' 'The Carter III,' 'The Carter IV' and 'The Carter V') and three No. 1 songs ("Down" with Jay Sean, "Lollipop" with Static Major and "I'm the One" with DJ Khaled, Justin Bieber, Quavo and Chance the Rapper).

It's no coincidence that Lil Wayne was part of the "Prime Weekend" activities, hosting a concert at the CU Events Center that was mandatory for every Buffs player. Everyone else had to pay $90+ to attend. Sanders has said Weezy is like a son to him in the past.

Lil Wayne was mentioned in perhaps the most notable song of the entire Kendrick Lamar-Drake beef, "Not Like Us," when Lamar called out Drake for being with Weezy's girlfriend while he was in prison.

That likely won't spawn another beef between Drake and Lil Wayne, though, given how thoroughly Kendrick has embarrassed Drake on an international stage.
