Travis Scott & Big Boi Join Maroon 5 For SB53 Halftime Show

After a long wait, and lots of speculation, we now know that Travis Scott and Big Boi (formerly of Outkast) will join Maroon 5 as performers during the Super Bowl 53 halftime show...

Maroon 5 made the announcement via social media on Sunday...

Travis Scott (Houston) and Big Boi (Atlanta) have agreed to join M5 for halftime, but there were some stipulations on behalf of Travis Scott...


A source close to the negotiations has now confirmed to Billboard that Scott required the NFL to make a joint donation to an organization fighting for social justice in order for him to move forward with the event.

Scott made a $500,000 donation in partnership with the NFL to “social justice accelerator” Dream Corps, an organization founded by Van Jones in 2014, and will work with the NFL on additional initiatives.

“I back anyone who takes a stand for what they believe in,” Scott said in a statement. “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.”

No matter how you feel about Kaepernick or the NFL, it's pretty awesome to see TS use his status to make a positive change.
