Snoop Dogg Hypes Up Super Bowl Halftime Appearance, Claims It Will Be Greatest Performance In Hip-Hop History

Snoop Dogg wants fans to know that this year’s Super Bowl Halftime Show will be one for the history books.

The Dogfather himself is set to perform at the Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show alongside Dr. Dre, Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, and Mary J. Blige, and during a recent appearance on “Monday Night Football” with NFL stars Peyton and Eli Manning, the “Gin and Juice” rapper made some big promises about the show viewers can expect.

“It’s going to be a great performance. You’ve got Dr. Dre, Kendrick Lamar, Eminem, Mary J and Snoop Dogg. It’s going to be a great presentation,” teased the “Drop It Like It’s Hot” rapper. “We’re so thankful that NFL is accepting hip-hop on stage and letting us do what we do. We plan on putting together a great show and giving the people something they’ve been waiting on.”

“They love to watch a great Super Bowl game, but at the same time at halftime, they love to see who’s gonna perform,” he continued. “So we’re gonna give you the greatest performance you’ve ever seen in hip-hop history.”

The upcoming meeting of the legends on the field of Inglewood’s SoFi Stadium was organized by Pepsi and Roc Nation. The star-studded display is the latest result of the 2019 partnership between Jay-Z’s label and the NFL.

“On February 13, 2022, at the Super Bowl, Dr. Dre, a musical visionary from Compton; Snoop Dogg, an icon from Long Beach; and Kendrick Lamar, a young musical pioneer in his own right, also from Compton; will take center field for a performance of a lifetime,” the mogul previously said in a statement. “They will be joined by the lyrical genius, Eminem; and the timeless Queen, Mary J. Blige … This is history in the making.”

Mega-producer and Snoop’s former Death Row Records collaborator Dr. Dre is looking forward to the event just as much as his longtime friend, even calling it “one of the biggest thrills of my career.”

“The opportunity to perform at the Super Bowl halftime show, and to do it in my own backyard, will be one of the biggest thrills of my career,” the Beats By Dre creator said in a statement. “I’m grateful to Jay-Z, Roc Nation, the NFL, and Pepsi as well as Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamar for joining me in what will be an unforgettable cultural moment.”

The “Queen of Hip-Hop Soul” is also ready to perform for the millions who will tune in and is even more excited about being in the spotlight this time after her 2001 cameo during the big game’s Aerosmith/’NSync/Britney Spears halftime performance.

“I’m cool! I mean, it’s the world that’s gonna be watching, but I think I’ll be alright,” she told Andy Cohen during a November “Watch What Happens Live” appearance. “The first time I did it, I was in the background with like Aerosmith, and Britney Spears, and Justin Timberlake, and I was just in like in background. … But I’m gonna be in the front with all my peers, which is Dre and Snoop and Eminem and Kendrick [Lamar], and I’m the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul.”
