It’s the one and only…
This show was so freaking great!
Set design was stellar. The neighborhood was out for this show and the stage presented that. Really cool nod to Los Angeles urban culture throughout. Who doesn’t love Snoop Dogg. Not a single person. Martha Stewart gave him the stamp of approval for the white woman demographic. And who gives a shirt what some Ignorant racists may thing. This music speaks to anyone under the age of 50 and it’s here to stay.
As the first Hip Hop half time show I feel like they were really tame here just so as to not burn any future potential there. Which is smart and safe. A good move I’d say. Still just an awesome show top to bottom. Great stroll down memory lane of Hip Hop during my formative years.
Awesome getting to see 50 Cent drop down a la his breakthrough music video. Anyone ripping my boy saying he look bloated and sound old… to you I say let’s see how you look performing your banger at the Super Bowl halftime show 20 years after you dropped that shirt. Fuq outta here.
Best entrance for sure goes to Kendrick Lamar. That was trippy and his freaking choreography game is next level. And it’s apparent in all of his videos as well as being on full display throughout his performance here.
Eminem. While his entrance looked like it was to be grander than it was presented on the show, he still killed it. Lose Yourself is an alltime go to banger. That song doesn’t miss.
Just really wish each of these guys had more time. Each of these artists (except Mary J. Blige, sorry) could carry a halftime show themselves. Should have had 2 of them. I mean Eminem and Kendrick alone is so awesome and each of them would have had more time to really get into and perform. But again the 5 artist thing may have been a way of helping break hip hop into getting to do this more often.
All in all not the greatest show of all time but pretty great. I’d say still behind Prince and Bruno Mars in my mind. Yeah sure, call me soft for the bruno mars call, but when he was channeling the ghost of James Brown I was all in! Shirt was fire!
God Lose Yourself is the best isn’t it.
LIL DICKY’S GOPUFF QUARTERTIME SHOW
Lil Dicky is an absolute genius. On every level. Music. Comedy. Drama. Business. Marketing. Dudes the whole package. That’s my review. Just really more of an observation.
