Uncle Luke On J. Lo And Shakira Performing At 2020 Super Bowl In Miami ‘Y’all Gon’ Totally Disrespect All The African-American Entertainment In Miami? Jay-Z You Gotta Fix This’
Miami native Uncle Luke is not here for the halftime performers of the 2020 Super Bowl in Miami. It was announced recently that Jennifer Lopez and Shakira would be hitting the stage for the main event.
But Uncle Luke is just one of many people who took to social media to express their disappointment; much of it comes after Jay-Z signed on to the NFL’s live entertainment strategist in the league’s social just initiative.
Uncle Luke said on Instagram over the weekend,
“I am so pissed right now. I really want to use some profanity but I got a lot of kids that follow me on Instagram I’ve noticed these days. All of a sudden, the NFL, y’all gon’ bring in J. Lo and somebody else, and just totally disrespect all the African-American entertainment in Miami? So, we don’t exist.”
He added that he himself doesn’t want to perform, but offered up a few options that he said should have been considered.
“It ain’t about me, I don’t want to perform. But you wanna bring J. Lo and the other girl, I don’t even know where she from. Nobody from Miami. We got world-class entertainment here. I would have thought you had sense to go get Pit Bull, Flo Rida or Ross or somebody, Trick Daddy or something. Really? You’re gonna bring in those two people? You’re gonna rape the town of all of our money, and then gonna bring us… We don’t need the NFL, our hotels are already filled up.”
He then called on Jay-Z to make it right.
“You need us! Jay-Z, you gotta fix this s***. I’m just gonna keep it 100.”
He added the caption,
“I have a serious problem with the @NFL and the people they pick to perform at the Super Bowl. The @NFL has totally disrespected the African American along with Miami entertainment community. Jay-Z this your first job”
Interestingly enough, Uncle Luke first defended Jay-Z when his partnership with the NFL was announced last month. While some criticized Jay-Z for joining the league after it allegedly blackballed former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick for his protest against police brutality during games, Uncle Luke was one to back the rapper.
