We previously reported that the Super Bowl was having trouble finding acts who will play with its feature attraction, Maroon 5, for the halftime show.

According to numerous reports, artists are reluctant to take part in the 13-minute production because of the controversy concerning blacklisted former footballer Colin Kaepernick and the NFL’s stance on a player’s right to protest.

But TMZ confirmed yesterday that Travis Scott has been added to the small lineup of stars who will perform during the Super Bowl LIII halftime show at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta on Feb. 3. There are rumors that Cardi B and Big Boi have agreed to perform as well.

Meanwhile, Jermaine Dupri is hosting a concert series at Centennial Olympic Park on Super Bowl weekend. The music icon, along with Maroon 5, and Travis Scott are receiving heavy backlash on social media from fans who say they are sellouts for performing at sport’s biggest event of the year.

When rapper Meek Mill read about Scott’s decision on Complex.com, he tweeted: “For what????” in response (see image above).

“He don’t need that he on fire already! Stay strong in this sh*t!” Meek added on Twitter.

And Variety reports that JAY-Z is “attempting to talk Scott out of performing.”

Meanwhile, Dupri defended his decision to head the committee that oversees the music events leading up to the Super Bowl. He also said artists should “use their platform” to do “more than boycotts.”

“But it seems really interesting that [in the music industry] so many people will boycott something one year and then the next year they’re buddy-buddy with the thing that they boycotted,” he said.

  1. All Black & Brown people #mutetravisscottmusic he so wrapped up with them KarTRASHians that he has forgotten he’s Black! How dare you stand against the fight of your ancestors for fame and a few f**king dollars!

  2. Black people need to stop selling the soul for money. We will never get anywhere fame doesn’t mean you know yourself. We have lost many famous blacks who had fame, money, and influence and died at their own hands. Please BLACK PEOPLE aspire to more than white mans view of fame. Look at Jews, Italians, and Asians how they use their wealth to grow the community hence everyone rises. The idiots on here talking about people mining their business, seem to understand were made our greatest strides mining our business.

      And trust & believe when Travis falls from grace the Jenner/Kardashian vampires will shun him like yesterday’s trash & look for a new ni**a to chain.

    Sorry Jay, but Travis is a goner just like your homie Koonye. Travis has fell prey to Kardashians covenant of witches. He’s dipped his d**k in the black spell pot & sold his soul, breaded a child in exchange for national fame and recognition. He’s now following the official black male headed for destruction handbook by planning to stage an elaborate (FAKE) proposal/engagement and wedding to Kylie Jenner to help KUWTK struggling ratings. I say leave him alone let him fall the hard way.
