Travis Scott Agreed to Perform At Super Bowl Under 1 Condition, NFL Must Donate To Charity
Rapper Travis Scott announced last month that he, along with Outkast rapper Big Boi, will appear during Maroon 5‘s halftime performance at the Super Bowl. But, he didn’t reveal all of his plans. Travis agreed to perform, but only under one condition – the National Football League (NFL) had to agree to donate to his charity of course.
Ha! Travis and the NFL donated $500,000 to Dream Corps, an organization founded by CNN analyst/criminal reform activist Van Jones.
Travis Scott released this statement:
“I back anyone who takes a stand for what they believe in. I know being an artist that it’s in my power to inspire. So before confirming the Super Bowl Halftime performance, I made sure to partner with the NFL on this important donation. I am proud to support Dream Corps and the work they do that will hopefully inspire and promote change.”
Seemingly, Travis made the NFL’s donation a term of agreement to make up for the fact that he’s performing. Many celebrities – including Jay Z, Cardi B, and Rihanna – turned the Super Bowl’s halftime slot down in support of Colin Kaepernick.
Super Bowl LIII (53) will take place on February 3, 2019 at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia. Will you be watching?
