It’s already well known that San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan is a huge Lil’ Wayne fan. How big? He named his son, Carter, after the legendary hip-hop artist.
Apparently, Lil’ Wayne got note of this recently. He just sent the older Shanahan and his young child some pretty awesome swag.

Yes, that’s two autographed posters with a personal touch as well as a CD of Wayne’s latest music.
Shanahan’s infatuation with the rap artist caught a bunch of people by surprise. Former NFLer Chris Simms opened up about how Shanahan was “obsessed” with Lil’ Wayne when the second-year 49ers coach worked with the quarterback during their time in Tampa Bay.
That obsession has now been taken to a whole new level with Shanahan naming his on after the mogul. They also have some pretty cool swag to show for it.
