Dre Day: An Iconic Powerhouse To Perform For The 52nd Super Bowl Halftime Show

On September 30, the RocNation, NFL, and Pepsi Instagram accounts announced that Dr. Dre will be performing the halftime show for the 52nd Super Bowl show on February 13, 2022. The best part of it is that he won’t be alone.

Dr. Dre will also be sharing the stage with iconic artists such as Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige, Eminem and Kendrick Lamar!

After constant deliberation on whether hip-hop artists and black artists would perform for the NFL again, it seems to finally be accomplished again.

As you all may know, the black-balling of 49ers Quarterback Colin Kaepernick's role in the NFL disturbed a lot of music artists the wrong way in which led fellow artists such as Rihanna and Jay Z to turn down offers performing for the Super Bowl. The reasoning for Kaepernick's isolation was due to protesting during the national anthem by getting on one knee. This caused a lot of controversy for many NFL players and feedback from politicians.

However, Jay-Z’s company RocNation recently partnered with NFL to become its official live music entertainment strategists in which they will provide production and promotion for the “Inspire Change” Initiative in which was created to combat racial injustice in the sports world.
