Snoop Dogg will be playing at the Super Bowl Halftime Show and he can’t contain his excitement. The Hip-Hop legend will be accompanied by other high-profile artists on the roster too. This is promising to be a great event as the NFL has looked towards the OGs of the genre and they want to make a mark.
Snoop is certainly over the moon about his upcoming Super Bowl Halftime Show performance. In a new interview with Associated Press, he called it a “dream come true”. The rapper has assured people that he will not let his nerves get the best of him in the show.
The Doggfather is looking forward to sharing the stage with some of the Hip-Hop’s finest. He will be performing with the likes of Dr. Dre, Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, and Mary J. Blige. Performing at his home state in the Super Bowl is something he would cherish all his life.
Snoop teased the fans that he may include his 1994 classic “Gin and Juice” during the highly anticipated show. The Long Beach native has been a household name since 1992 when he was featured on Dr. Dre’s debut solo single “Deep Cover”. However, having years of experience in the business has not stopped him from getting anxious for the upcoming event.
“I’m still thinking I’m in a dream because I can’t believe that they will let a real hip-hop artist grace the stage in an NFL Super Bowl. We’re just going to wait for that moment and put something together that’s spectacular, and do what we’re known for doing and add on to the legacy.”
“For me, when performing, I never let the moment get bigger than me. I am not going to understand it until it happens. While it’s happening, I’m in the zone. I’m stuck to the script, laser-focused, being on point, sounding good, looking good, and feeling good.”
Snoop Dogg said their show is important for the legacy of the hip-hop culture. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Blige, and Lamar are set to join a list of celebrated entertainers who have played during Super Bowl halftime shows. Beyoncé, Madonna, Coldplay, Katy Perry, U2, Lady Gaga, Michael Jackson, Jennifer Lopez, Shakira, and most recently, The Weeknd have also graced the stage previously.
While it is probably nerve-wracking for the artists to live up to the hype of the event, they are used to performing among the biggest crowds and will definitely put on an amazing show. We hope to see Snoop and the gang show us their best when on the stage as we eagerly wait for February 13th.
