There was speculation that Travis Scott would be joining Maroon 5’s Halftime performance for Super Bowl LIIII but it is now confirmed. The big stage in Atlanta will have two Hip-Hop representatives as Big Boy will also perform.
The Halftime show was announced during the halftime of the divisional round playoff game between the New England Patriots and Los Angeles Chargers, which Brady and the boys won.
The performance will go down on February 3rd from the Mercedes Benz stadium. Maroon 5 would go on to release a video promoting the high profile performance.
Many within the Hip-Hop community have spoken against any acts from the genre performing on the stage after the treatment of Colin Kaepernick by the league and the fall out of the situation. Billboard details the agreement for Scott to perform at the big game include a donation from the league to a social justice cause and he refused to perform until that was placed in the deal
