Eminem never ceases to amaze his fans and the general public alike. He is going to share his set of upcoming Super Bowl performance with an unsigned rapper. The most astonishing part about this is that the artist he is set to bring out is deaf emcee from his hometown of Detroit.
According to report from the Detroit Free Press deaf rapper Sean Forbes will get the chance of the lifetime on Sunday, Feb. 13 at the Super Bowl LVI halftime show. Where he will perform alongside Dr. Dre, Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar, and Mary J. Blige.
The NFL, for the first time in history, has incorporated sign-language performances as part of the halftime program. “The doors to accessibility are busted wide open with something like this,” Forbes said.
Forbes was discovered by the legendary rapper back in 2005 at 54 Sound. He showed Em video of him singing “Lose Yourself” from 8-Mile Soundtrack. This assisted him found the Deaf Performing Arts Network which specializes on ASL interpretations of popular songs.
Slim Shady, when asked about the meeting, said, “That was purely Sean Forbes trying to find an opportunity in the music industry. I just wasn’t sure what that was yet.”
Not only that, but Forbes will also be bringing his guy, Warren (WaWa) Snipe, and the two will perform songs at L.A.’s SoFi Stadium on February 13. NFL describes this as an elevated accessibility experience which you can view at NBCSports.com and the NBC Sports app.
