Jay-Z was willing to walk away from the NFL partnership over the halftime show, according to Snoop Dogg.
Mary J. Blige, Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar, Dr. Dre, 50 Cent, and Eminem delivered us the first hip-hop-themed performance during the Super Bowl LVI halftime show, which was deemed a performance for the culture.
With Snoop Dogg’s Crip Walk and his all-blue bandana outfit, which many may link with the Crips street gang, Snoop Dogg claims Jay-Z is to blame for the show’s authenticity.
In an interview with Elliot Wilson, the 50-year-old said that Jay Z, the NFL’s 2019 partner, issued an ultimatum to the league. Either the show’s performers were permitted to stay faithful to their identity, or he was reportedly terminating his contract with the NFL.
“We’re in love with each other.” “We love one other, not secretly, but publicly,” the rapper said. “It is what it is, so for him to go to bat for us and tell the NFL, ‘F**k that,’ is incredible.” The most gangster s**t out of everything was ‘They perform or I resign.’ “Then with attire and kneeling and all that… you can’t wear your gang bang s**t?” Snoop said. ‘Wear whatever the f**k you want,’ JAY-Z said to me. ‘Peace to the Gods,’ says the narrator.
Snoop claims that Jay-Z was the first person to come to the dressing room after the halftime act to express his delight.
“When I got offstage, Jay was the first one to come to the dressing room. Kevin Liles, the CEO of the 300 Entertainment label, was present. Jay was on FaceTime with Kevin Liles, who was trying to show him where we were. So he came down and hugged me as soon as he walked in,” Snoop recalled.
“We hug each other tight,” he added. It felt like we had won a championship. Do you know how you can tell when you’re truly happy for one other?
People don’t get it; it’s just me and him. On the East, he’s the one. “I’m the one from the West,” says the narrator.
As you may recall, Jay-Z and the NFL created a partnership in 2019 that allowed Jay-Z to control the NFL’s entertainment offerings.
The NFL’s “Inspired Change” program enlisted Jay-help. Z’s As was the case when relations between the NFL and Colin Kaepernick were at an all-time high, the revelation of the alliance drew some criticism.
