Travis Scott Spoke With Colin Kaepernick Ahead Of Taking Super Bowl Gig

Travis Scott caught criticism for accepting the Super Bowl LIII Halftime Time show sig alongside Maroon 5 but apparently, he spoke with Colin Kaepernick ahead of the announcement. Scott’s appearance was only booked solid after he was able to confirm that a large donation would be made to a social justice non-profit organization.

Variety exclusively reports:

That announcement only came after Scott announced that he and the NFL would donate $500,000 to the non-profit social-justice organization Dream Corps. The move was clearly intended to blunt the criticism Maroon 5 and particularly Scott had received for performing at the game, due largely to the league’s treatment of former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who has essentially been banished from professional football for taking a knee during the pre-game performances of the national anthem, a move many feel is based in racism.

Scott and Kaepernick had at least one phone conversation before the rapper confirmed his Super Bowl appearance, sources tell Variety. A source close to Scott said that while the two did not necessarily agree, they emerged from the conversation with mutual respect and understanding, with the rapper taking the stance that everyone makes a statement in their own way and he felt that the money going toward Dream Corps, combined with the platform provided by the Super Bowl, will do some good.

Both men have kept publicly mum about their chat, but this could be a step in the right direction nonetheless.

Travis Scott & Colin Kaepernick Spoke Before Securing Super Bowl Halftime Set

travis-scott

Houston rapper Travis Scott tried to do the right thing before confirming his appearance at next month’s Super Bowl LIII halftime show. New reports claim Cactus Jack and Black Lives Matter activist and NFL free agent Colin Kaepernick spoke.

According to reports, Scott told Kaep he would only agree to perform for the NFL after getting confirmation on a charity donation.

Scott and Kaepernick had at least one phone conversation before the rapper confirmed his Super Bowl appearance, sources tell Variety. A source close to Scott said that while the two did not necessarily agree, they emerged from the conversation with mutual respect and understanding, with the rapper taking the stance that everyone makes a statement in their own way and he felt that the money going toward Dream Corps, combined with the platform provided by the Super Bowl, will do some good. The source also said that Scott would not confirm his performance until the donation was locked in. (Variety)

This week, Hot 97 radio veteran Ebro Darden singled Scott out for accepting a $500,000 charity donation in exchange for his performance.

Last weekend, reports emerged about Scott’s Super Bowl halftime deal.

Travis Scott today announced that in partnership with the National Football League, he will make a $500,000 donation to the non-profit organization Dream Corps, among “other initiatives that he will work with the League on.” The move is clearly designed to counter criticism over his appearance at the Super Bowl halftime show with Maroon 5 — which was finally confirmed, after weeks of speculation, precisely 30 minutes after Scott announced the donation on Sunday. (Variety)

A few days ago, halftime performers Maroon 5 announced OutKast’s Big Boi would also join in on the festivities.

Post Malone Wants R. Kelly’s Music Pulled, Travis Scott Pressured To Kneel At Super Bowl LIII, Kim Kardashian Chooses Between Taylor Swift & Drake?

Post Malone

Turnt Tuesday. It’s a day to get fully turnt SOHH why not get things going with Post Malone wanting R. Kelly‘s music pulled? Speaking of controversial topics, how about a petition going around urging Travis Scott to knee during next month’s Super Bowl LIII halftime show? With choices on your mind, who do you think Kim Kardashian would rather be stuck in an elevator with between Taylor Swift and Drake? All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. Pull It

Is it too much to have R. Kelly’s music pulled? Couldn’t people just choose not to listen to it? Turns out Texas hip-hop artist Post Malone is down for having Kells’ tunes fade to black on streaming sites – notably his collabos. TMZ has the footage:

Do you agree with him? Is he speaking facts? Think this will all die down soon or amplify? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

2. Kneel To Heal

With all the backlash Travis Scott received for agreeing to perform at the Super Bowl LIII halftime show, could he make things right again by taking a knee during the performance? Turns out there’s a major petition going around urging Scott, Maroon 5 and Big Boi to show support for Black Lives Matter activist Colin Kaepernick at next month’s championship game. Billboard has the info:

Travis Scott

As seen on SOHH.com

Back in November, a Change.org petition demanding Maroon 5 to step down from their scheduled performance at the Super Bowl LIII halftime show garnered nearly 85,000 signatures. However, the band is officially playing at the Feb. 3 football game, and Travis Scott and Big Boi were both added to the bill. In response, the petition updated its goal: for the three performers to take a knee during their set. “I have nothing against the band, this isn’t about them and they just got caught in the crossfire,” Vic Oyedeji, founder of Unstrippedvoice and the petition’s creator told Billboard of Maroon 5. “I’m saying the only way for them to preserve their reputation is to take a knee during their set to show the hundreds of millions of people watching their solidarity with Colin Kaepernick and the players who are protesting police brutality.” (Billboard)

Could this be a huge win? Are you pulling for this to happen? Will you sign the petition? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

3. Choose Your Fate

What ever happened to pleading the fifth? Turns out Kim K had the pressure on her this week during an appearing of “Watch What Happens Live” and had to make the ultimate decision – who would she rather be stuck in an elevator with – Taylor Swift or Drake. Turns out both have had issues with her hubby – Kanye West – but for Kim, it seemed almost like a no-brainer. YouTube has the footage:

Do you believe her? Did she make the right decision? Think she’s being honest? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

That wraps it up for today. This is SOHH On The Spot giving you the scoop from your fave gossip sites.

Ebro Darden

New York radio veteran Ebro Darden needs some answers quick, fast and in a hurry. The Hot 97 personality has singled out rap star Travis Scott for allegedly making a deal with the NFL for a $500,000 charity donation in exchange for his Super Bowl LIII halftime performance.

Ebro went to Instagram Tuesday (January 15) to let loose his frustrations.

Last weekend, reports emerged about Scott’s Super Bowl halftime deal.

Recently, buzz developed about New York rapper Cardi B wanting around $1 million to perform at the SB.

The source claimed that the diva rapper had demanded a staggering fee of up to $1 million, plus a solo spot in the epic halftime show to make it worth her while. Artists are not paid for the halftime show, but are given a “gift in kind” by the NFL to cover expenses such as production, transport and wardrobe. (Page Six)

Travis Scott will be performing at this year’s Super Bowl halftime show along with Big Boi and Maroon 5. Although there were reports that Jay Z and more were trying to talk him out of it, Scott said yes to the appearance…under one condition.

Scott, recently criticized for his stance on Mike Brown’s death, had the NFL donate to the social justice group Dream Corps. “I back anyone who takes a stand for what they believe in,” Scott said in a statement, according to HighSnobiety. “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.”

Check out Dream Corps here and let us know if you’re cool with Scott performing following the NFL’s donation? The Super Bowl goes down in Atlanta on February 3.

Take that little egg

A post shared by Kylie (@kyliejenner) on

Yesterday, reports surfaced about Kylie getting dethroned by the IG egg post.

Kylie lost the coveted title of Instagram’s most liked post on Sundyay to an account called world_record_egg … which was created earlier this month with only one goal — beat Kylie on IG. The account features just one post on its timeline … a pic of a brown egg. The photo of the egg just passed Kylie’s milestone of 18,186,810 likes on Instagram, and the number’s still rising. Prior to the defeat, Kylie’s post from last February showing Stormi squeezing her mom’s thumb with her tiny baby hands was the record holder. (TMZ)

Despite Kylie having 123.8 million followers, the egg managed to edge Jenner.

According to reports, Travis Scott recently dropped around $25,000 on a plush stuffed animal chair for their daughter Stormi Webster.

The rapper recently gifted his daughter, 11 months, a chair made of plush toys by designer brothers Humberto and Fernando Campana. Two of the duo’s stuffed animal seating creations are currently for sale on the luxury design marketplace 1stDibs for between $15,000 and $25,000. However, it’s likely Stormi’s fluffy hangout actually cost far more. (People)

Big Boi, Travis Scott Will Join Maroon 5 Super Bowl LIII Halftime Show

Despite the growing number of big-name acts who have turned down performing during the Super Bowl LIII Halftime Show, organizers have confirmed who will be joining Maroon 5 for the set. Atlanta veteran Big Boi of Outkast fame and Houston’s Travis Scott will take the stage during the big event.

Page Six reports:

Maroon 5 had been the widely reported halftime show act since September, but the NFL officially announced the band as its headliner Sunday. The league says Maroon 5 will feature guest artists including Big Boi, the Atlanta-based rapper from Outkast, and Scott.

Many acts have turned down the halftime show this year in support of Colin Kaepernick and other players who have taken a knee during the national anthem in protest of racial injustice. An online petition urges Maroon 5 to withdraw from the gig.

Scott has been reportedly tapped to perform in the show since last month, although many have asked him to not take the gig.

The Super Bowl will take place on Feb. 3 at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Ga.

Travis Scott Reportedly Agreed to Perform for Super Bowl if NFL Donates to Social Justice Cause

Travis Scott and Big Boi are confirmed to join Maroon 5 to perform for the Super Bowl halftime show. But La Flame only hopped on board under one condition: The NFL donated to a social justice cause.

Scott was confirmed to perform since December, but the donation was required for it to be final. The ASTROWORLD rapper plans to partner with the league to donate half a million to Dream Corps, among other charitable endeavors.

The donation arrives after the Friday launch of the NFL’s “Inspire Change” initiative.

Travis Scott agreeing to participate in the show was controversial due to the Black community’s support of Colin Kaepernick. Meek Mill tweeted that he didn’t understand why the Houston rapper accepted the gig.

Al Sharpton told TMZ, “I think anyone that goes into the halftime show is in effect directly violating those that want to raise the question that the NFL should come to terms with what they have done and continue to do to Colin Kaepernick and those that protest on criminal justice issues.”

A number of artists reportedly tuned down the offer in support of Kaepernick including, JAY-Z, Rihanna, and Cardi B.
