Report: JAY Z Is Trying To Get Travis Scott To Ditch Super Bowl Halftime Show

Like Meek Mill, JAY Z is disappointed that Travis Scott will be featured in this year's Maroon 5 led Super Bowl Halftime show.

Two sources also tell Variety that Jay-Z — who has been highly critical of the NFL over its treatment of former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick — is attempting to talk Scott out of performing, although reps either declined comment or could not immediately be reached ... For weeks, Maroon 5 had been struggling to find a black act to take the stage with them, according to Variety‘s sources, with Cardi B, Outkast, Usher, Lauryn Hill, Nicki Minaj, said to be in talks with the group; Mary J. Blige and Rihanna are said to have declined. The unprecedented delay in announcing a halftime headliner — 2018 Super Bowl performer Justin Timberlake made his announcement last October — is believed to be due to the delay in confirming a second performer.

In HOV's track "Apeshit", he says the NFL wanted him to do a halftime show, but he turned it down:

"I said no to the Superbowl / You need me, I don’t need you / Every night we in the endzone / Tell the NFL we in stadiums too," he rapped.

Do you think Scott will end up doing the show, or will his famous friends be able to convince him otherwise?
