Eminem’s contributions to hip-hop culture is incalculable. Eminem’s achievements continue to mount one by one. Eminem is also not afraid to remind audiences about his humble roots, as he was poor as a child and was depicted as such in the film 8 Mile.
Dr. Dre called Big Boy’s radio show to give him and his listeners an update on the Super Bowl Halftime Show’s preparations. The song list has been approved, and rehearsals are about to begin. Dr. Dre is looking forward to putting on the show of his dreams.
The iconic producer says that the strain of writing a new chapter in Super Bowl history is overwhelming.
It’s really exciting. Several people were banging me over the head about doing the show, Snoop being one of them. Of course, I was, and I still am extremely nervous about it, but I’m excited about it at the same time. We’ve been working hard to put together a fantastic show. The first time they’re allowing hip hop artists to headline the Super Bowl, and we’re getting ready to go at it. We know we’re going to open the door for other hip hop artists to be able to do Super Bowl Halftime shows in the future.
The show length has always been a concern. The line-up of this event is incredible: Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar, Mary J. Blige and, of course, the Good Doctor himself. How much time do they have on stage? Not nearly enough, but longer than is usually allowed at this event.
While we’re all excited for the approaching Halftime show, Dre’s hint regarding other events they’ve already planned raises our expectations even higher. Rumors of the Beats and Rhymes tour being resurrected came to mind right away. Dr. Dre, Eminem, Snoop Dogg, and Kendrick Lamar are all scheduled to perform on the tour.
