Travis Scott faced backlash after he agreed to perform at the Super Bowl halftime show. Many thought it was a slap in the face that he’d agree to perform on the NFL face after everything Colin Kaepernick went through. However, it looks like Scott used his platform and position to finesse the system in some way. The rapper reportedly told NFL he would agree to perform at the Super Bowl only if they committed to donating money towards a cause for social justice.
During negotiations, Travis Scott made the NFL agree to make a joint donation towards a charitable cause, Billboard reports. The rapper and the NFL teamed up to donate $500K to “social justice accelerator” Dream Corps, an organization founded by Van Jones in 2014.
“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.”
Earlier today, Maroon 5 confirmed that Travis Scott and Big Boi would be joining them on stage during the Super Bowl halftime performance in Atlanta on Feb. 3rd, 2019.
