“Yo, Dan,” the Not Afraid rapper said on January 16. “I’m reporting, I’m going to report the third quarter, I’m reporting, offensive line, eligible receiver, I’ll be the quarterback, the entire offensive line and the receiver, and I will throw it to myself, and I will score a touchdown in the third quarter.”
