Petition Calls for Migos to Replace Lady Gaga at 2017 Super Bowl Halftime Show
Lady Gaga is set to the field next month as the Super Bowl Halftime Show performer, but not if some hip-hop fans get their way, as a petition has been launched to replace Gaga with Migos. There are additional requests made on the Change petition, most centered around the fact that the Atlanta Falcons are in their second Super Bowl in franchise history and will be playing in Houston come Feb. 5
As explained on the petition, Atlanta and Houston are home to two of the largest hip-hop communities in the country, and thus, "Your entertainment choices have to change RIGHT NOW." That change would include a preshow with Rae Sremmurd, Gucci Mane, Goodie Mob, Ludacris and Young Jeezy, with Andre 3000 and Erykah Badu signing the National Anthem together. Migos would then perform at halftime with Future and Outkast, a set list to include "Bad and Boujee," "March Madness" and an Aquemini medley and a "Big Pimpin'" finale performed by Jay Z and Bun B.
Thus far, the petition has received more than 5,000 signatures, and beyond Rae Sremmurd being from Mississippi, it sounds like any ATL or H-Town rap fans dream. According to Big Boi, the 'Kast were supposed to play the Super Bowl Halftime Show in 2004, but he and Dre refused to shorten any of their tracks. Instead, Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake performed, a wardrobe malfunction changing the course of the Halftime Show for years to come.
