While Maroon 5 made a big announcement over the weekend regarding the band’s Super Bowl LIII halftime performance, on Sunday the band also revealed on Instagram that Outkast luminary Big Boi has joined the lineup. Big Boi will perform alongside both Maroon 5 and Travis Scott at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium on February 5.
As you may recall, Scott participation has received criticism from those boycotting the NFL for its treatment of former San Francisco 49er quarterback Colin Kaepernick. JAY-Z reportedly tried to talk Scott out of participating, while Meek Mill took his concerns to Twitter.
Similarly, after the announcement of Big Boi’s involvement the same criticisms have arose. But Big Boi seems unphased, posting on Maroon 5’s video with the caption, “#SBLIII ATL let’s get it!”
