Jay Z, Kendrick Lamar, Swizz Beatz and Usher Watch Super Bowl 50 Together in Same Suite
There was a good deal fanfare surrounding Sunday night's (Feb. 7) Super Bowl, with Beyonce performing "Formation" at halftime, and Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos handing Cam Newton's Carolina Panthers their second loss of the season. Jay Z was on hand to cheer his wife on, and based on a few videos posted to social media, he had a number hip-hop A-listers along with him.
Swizz Beatz posted a video to Instagram showing his son Egypt sitting next to Kendrick Lamar with Jay Z and Usher watching the game behind them. Usher meanwhile posted a video to Snapchat of himself Beyonce and Jay Z with Jay saying "I don't even know what that means" in reference to something Usher had told him, perhaps that he was taking a video snap. It seems a good time was had by all in hip-hop's most important press box.
After the Broncos won Super Bowl 50, MVP Von Miller was spotted at Grand Nightclub near a rapping Lil Wayne. In a video posted by TMZ Sports, Weezy is seen performing his hits "I'm Goin In," "Truffle Butter" and "A Milli" all while Miller dances and mimes the lyrics close by.
Despite the loss, and Cam Newton's missed opportunity to dab with the Lombardi trophy, hip-hop was represented at this year's Super Bowl in a major way. Check out Swizz's video above, Usher's below and the footage of Wayne and Miller further down.
