Chance The Rapper Says He Wouldn’t Perform at the Super Bowl
Chance The Rapper will not be one of the artists you'll see on Jay-Z's curated Super Bowl halftime performance stage.
On Monday (Aug. 26), Chano stopped by Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club to chat about his album The Big Day and its accompanying tour. Eventually, the hot topic of the Super Bowl came up and Chance made it clear how he feels about himself potentially taking the stage.
"Nah, I wouldn't and it's not no knock to anybody," Chance said in response to being asked whether he'd perform at the halftime show. "I don't think the Super Bowl is my actionable item. I think there's certain things that I would like to see get changed and I work on them and there's a lot of people that help me. Shout out to Jay-Z who's helped me a lot since day one, but there's things that I got to do personally that I think will affect change and empower other people to affect change, that would be outside of the Super Bowl. "
Jay's deal with the NFL has many people divided, Colin Kaepernick's lawyer has called the deal "cold-blooded" and many others have also called out the Roc Nation founder. However, others like Freddie Gibbs and Vic Mensa are standing with Hov.
Watch Chance's full interview with The Breakfast Club below. The NFL topic happens around the 47:25 mark.
