The 2022 Super Bowl is coming to L.A. and Snoop Dogg wants in.
In an interview with Yahoo!, the West Coast rap icon said his dream is to play the halftime show with a few hometown heroes including Dr. Dre and Kendrick Lamar, along with his Shady/Aftermath friends Eminem and 50 Cent.
“Hopefully the NFL will be smart and make the right decision. It’s in Inglewood, Calif., and it will make the most sense in the world,” said Snoop, who released his album From Tha Streets 2 Tha Suites last month.
Tha Doggfather has already volunteered his services. “I’m available, Dre’s available, Eminem’s available, Kendrick Lamar, 50 Cent — whoever Dr. Dre wants to pull out of his hat to make this thing a professional event and make it big and the biggest effort they can have. It’s just a matter of the NFL pulling the trigger.”
Snoop, who headlined Coachella with Dre in 2012, promises that he would deliver a show to remember. “I wouldn’t just walk out. I would definitely do something that would be mind-blowing, you know what I’m saying?” he said. “People will be talking about it for the next 30 years. I’m open to anything that’s dope, unique, edgy, and cunning. This will be cutting-edge, just for my people.”
Snoop may also want to give JAY-Z a call as Roc Nation produces the halftime show and advises the NFL on talent. In February, The Weeknd headlined the Pepsi Super Bowl LV Halftime Show in Tampa, Fla. The year before that, Jennifer Lopez and Shakira shared the bill.
Super Bowl LVI will be held on Feb. 13, 2022 at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, Calif.
