It's no secret that 51-year-old Jim Harbaugh is a fan of rap music.

Back in March, Harbaugh posted a photo of himself wearing a flat-brim hat given to him by Bay Area rapper G-Eazy. Earlier that month, the Michigan coach tweeted that he was proud of Big Sean for releasing his first No. 1 album. He also got Detroit rapper Xzibit to narrate a hype video for his team and inadvertently attributed a Rick Ross quote to Frank Gore.

So, with Lil Wayne in Detroit for a concert on Friday night, you better believe Harbaugh had something special in store for Weezy. 

Harbaugh signed a customized jersey for Wayne and said he was "proud to be a fan."

As for the two guys pictured with Wayne, they're both former Michigan quarterbacks. One is Denard Robinson, the other is Jack Kennedy, a backup who threw only one pass in his career but is now a rapper who performed before Wayne on Friday.
