Yesterday’s Super Bowl halftime show displayed the heat of hip-hop with stars Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Kendrick Lamar, and Mary J. Blige performed their popular hits.
These performances marked the first time that the performers of the halftime show consisted mainly of hip-hop artists.
Famous Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre opened the show with hits “The Next Episode” and “California Love.”
They were then followed by surprise guest 50 Cent who had the crowd crazy for his birthday anthem, “In Da Club,” which he sang as he hung upside down on stage.
Mary J. Blige then stole the stage with powerful singles “Family Affair” and “No More Drama.”
American rapper Kendrick Lammar then performed his famous songs “M.a.a.D City” and “Alright” where men wearing black suits and sashes saying “Dre Day” surrounded him.
Grammy-winning rapper Eminem was up next to take the stage with his popular hit “Lose Yourself.” He ended his performance with a powerful kneel to represent his protest against police brutality and racism.
The talented performers then closed the show with a bang, as they collaboratively performed “Still D.R.E.”
