*Atlanta based rapper and wild man, Waka Flocka Flame is not happy with the NFL’s decision to employ Maroon 5 as halftime entertainment at the upcoming Super Bowl in 2019.
His position is that since the Super Bowl festivities and game will be in Atlanta, he believes the performers should be black.
Waka tells TMZ Sports that he’s upset with the NFL’s decision to diss the incredibly long list of Atlanta rappers in favor of a more mainstream performer.
And by the way, Waka Flocka thinks Colin Kaepernick’s movement could’ve influenced the halftime show … and says the NFL is just plain tone-deaf … disrespecting so many players and fans.
And you know what? Some folks think Flame is on point with his comments. And your thoughts are?
In any event, heck out the video for Waka Flocka Flame’s personal picks for the halftime show … and more.
