Wiz Khalifa's "Black and Yellow" is blowing up, so you know the West Coast had to put its spin on it.

While Dr. Dre was busy rapping about "Kush," and Ice Cube was doing Ice Cube things, The Game, Snoop Dogg and YG (the kid responsible for "Toot It And Boot It") were busy putting together a Lakers-themed remix: "Purp and Yellow."

Snoop drops lines about Kobe and Pau, gives a shout out to "Uncle Jack" Nicholson, and decides on a new nickname for Derek Fisher ("Fish-n-Chips"). The Game shines on a verse about pimped out Lakers whips. And YG tries not to mess it all up.

There's even an obligatory Miami Heat reference.

It's pretty standard as Lake Show tributes go, but the beat's so good you can almost forgive them for it.

Listen below.
