A columnist from the New York Post recently criticized Snoop Dogg‘s selection as a SuperBowl performer and questioned Pepsi and Corona’s decision to be a part of that.
Phil Mushnick wrote a scathing article on Snoop Dogg’s SuperBowl participation in the New York Post. He wrote, “As I watched that Corona ad, I got to thinking about Snoop Dogg’s violently anti-police, pro-crime vile and vulgar “artistry,” mindful that Roger Goodell appointed and anointed Snoop Dogg the headliner at this year’s Super Bowl halftime”
The columnist then went on to add that, “Five NYPD officers have been shot in the first 20 days of this year. And the fellow chosen by the NFL and approved by Goodell to star in this year’s halftime produces, records, sells, and profits from “artistry” advocating streets filled with the blood of cops and threats against those who would help solve the shootings of cops and civilians.”
The SuperBowl halftime show trailer was recently released. Titled “The Call,” it takes place on a massive gold chessboard as each star is interrupted by a phone call. The commercial begins with Eminem in a dark lab coat playing with floating lyrics in a rap battle against his younger alter ego, Slim Shady
Snoop Dogg commented on the upcoming halftime show recently, saying it would be the greatest performance in hip hop history,
“We’re so thankful that the NFL is accepting hip-hop on stage and letting us do what we do,” Snoop said. “We’re gonna give you the greatest performance you’ve ever seen in hip-hop history.”
