The 2022 Super Bowl is finally here and this year’s halftime show performance is setting up to be one for the ages. Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige, and Kendrick Lamar will take the world’s biggest stage and perform at the 2022 Super Bowl halftime show. Super Bowl LVI will air live on NBC and Peacock on Sunday, February 13, 2022 at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles, CA.-NBC Sports
So here we are. Super Bowl Sunday! Only beat by Christmas, Halloween, and Thanksgiving if you ask me. While many have chosen to root for either Joe Burrow or Matt Stafford come Sunday, there are 30 out of 32 fan bases just watching from the outside. What makes this game so awesome to everyone in America? The pageantry, the grand scale of everything. It’s the best. America at its finest and I will throw hands if you think otherwise.
This will be the best show since Prince at the Super Bowl in Miami 07. Colts Bears. We all know how that went don’t we.
Let’s go down the lineup.
NWA. The Chronic. No more needed. Educate yourself you dunce.
This guy’s would be one of Dan Carlin’s GREAT Men of Hip Hop. (Shout out Hardcore History). He is as influential as they get. From the music your listening to. To what your listening to them on (Dr. DRE) started Beats and sold it to Apple.
I’m so pumped for a new generation to witness and appreciate SNOOP DOGG for the skills he has as an artist. People can argue his music ain’t the greatest but the vibe you get from seeing snoop on TV of just effortless cool and unrelenting chillness that seeps through his TV appearances is the foundation of all his work. Gin and Juice is the shit. I was even down with most of the Snoop Lion album. “Good Good” is still great from that one
Ooooooohhhh this gets me pumped. “good kid, m.A.A.d. city” is like 3rd greatest album of all time in my mind behind Cudi’s “man on the moon” and “Runaways” by the Killers. Those are at least the 3 most important to me id say. Kendrick burst on the scene just as I was entering college and I have to say it was perfect timing. His music captures an attitude of “bring the bullshit. I’m gonna push through and come out ballin on the other end”. This guy was Pushin P before there was P to be pushed.
Even after that incredible debut he dropped the Grammy winning and often argued greatest rap album of all time. “Damn” and although Don Cheedle may very well have been on one of Epsteins plains I need him to not be a creep. Love when Kendrick barks back. Awesome.
Mary J Blige.
Not my jam really. But im here for seeing how the rest of the guys can work off her and use her singing ability throughout the performance.
And last… Eminem.
Say what you think in the comments below, but I think Eminem is the single most talented rapper out there. I mean other artists make bigger hits and have bigger songs (NOT MANY!!!), but no rapper has had me stop listening mid song because he just said something or laid such a line that I had to stop in awe and appreciate what I just heard. I mean “Lose Yourself” is something I still use to this day before anything needing a little pump up. Just had to storm into a dealership to dispute a warranty on our car and you best believe I’m channeling my Lose Yourself persona in that moment!
The single most insane showcase of rap skill, other than Lil Dickey’s Sway Freestyle may be Eminem in “Rap God” The shear audacity of Rap God Alone is an absolute spectacle. If you’ve never sat through this song you absolutely need to put on your best cans and really listen to it. Incredible.
When he hits that 4 min mark and begins just goin at speaking at like 14000 words a minute I just am in awe. Eminem is the best. Owning Rap and owning the spaghetti game now too
This show is going to be huge. It’s going to be incredible. I’m excited to see if they get any guests to perform as well, what with their already being 5 artists.
