Lil Wayne, better known these days as Tunchi, came to Boulder on Tuesday and received a grand tour of CU’s facilities alongside his friend Coach Prime AKA Deion Sanders.
The New Orleans native and five-time Grammy-winning rapper was in awe as he was taken around to greet everyone and is possibly the biggest musical artist to visit Colorado Buffaloes football program to date.
Sanders introduced Wayne to top-recruit Travis Hunter, who came to Boulder with Prime from Jackson State, along with other players spending time at CU’s Champions Center. The nation’s top defensive back seemed to be star struck for a minute, but quickly snapped back to business as usual.

Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Carter, arrived at Colorado right before National Signing Day, and once again puts the Buffs front and center on a national stage. The exposure Deion Sanders has brought to Boulder has been a huge recruiting tool, helping to reel in the likes of all-time top ten defensive back Cormani McClain and Hunter.
Carter plans a return to the road with his 2023 tour being finalized, according to Rolling Stone. He’ll return to Denver for a show at The Fillmore on May 7. A perfect time for a return visit to see Prime after Spring Ball.
