Atlanta-based rapper Waka Flocka Flame said it’s “not fair” the NFL reportedly selected pop band Maroon 5 to perform during the Super Bowl LIII halftime show at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta next February, given the host city’s deep roster of rap talent.
“They need somebody from Atlanta, it’s only right,” he told TMZ Sports after Jem Aswad and Shirley Halperin of Variety reported the choice of Maroon 5, a band that originated in Los Angeles.
The rapper also said that due to black culture’s impact on the NFL, the league should be more accepting of the Colin Kaepernick-led movement to kneel during the national anthem in protest of racial inequality.
He’s absolutely right!! They found the White-est band ever to play there.
