MILWAUKEE - He's J Byrd.  He's an up-and-coming rapper.

He's from Atlanta, but his family hails from Wisconsin, and he's made a song about his Packers that's catching fire on YouTube. 

Oh yeah, and he's 13 years old. 

Of all the Packer songs that have popped up in the past few weeks, his one might be the catchiest, and it's definitely the only one written by a seventh grader.

Green and Yellow is a variation of rapper Wiz Khalifa's chart topping hit "Black and Yellow" by 13 year-old Sam Freckmann, also known as J Byrd.

"I've always loved the Packers, and my manager sent me the 'Black and Yellow' and said, 'Write to this,' " explained Freckmann.

"I was kind of pondering what I should do for it, and then my brother gave me the idea to do the song for the Packers, 'Green and Yellow.' "

Despite his age, this kid flows like a seasoned veteran.

He's so good, in fact, that he's caught the attention of DJ Hurricane, the former DJ for the Beastie Boys.

"I started when I was nine, just making blocks of writing and did it for my family.  I've always been a creative kid."

Sam's parents, lifelong Packers fans, are thrilled with his career, and with his prediction for this weekend's game.

"I think the Bears are going to go down.  I'm guessing 42-35."
