Fans Urge NFL To Let Kanye West Perform Halftime Show At The Super Bowl

Listen to the kids bro! #KanyeWestForSuperBowl51

Football season is upon us and there's still no halftime performer scheduled for the upcoming Super Bowl. The NFL reportedly reached out to Adele about the opportunity, which they have denied, but she declined saying, "That show is not about music." Fans are now doing their best to get the league's attention to make Kanye West the choice to perform in Houston next year.

The hashtag #KanyeWestForSuperbowl51 has taken off thanks to TeamKanyeDaily on social media. There is even a petition for Kanye to perform nearing 1,300 signatures on change.org. Take a look at a few of the best tweets below.

Yeezy puts on a stellar performance in any environment to many diverse audiences, and you know he would take advantage of the big stage in Houston. His music catalogue is unprecedented in hip-hop, he has a number of hits he could perform as the Chicago rapper recently passed the great Michael Jackson on the top 40 hits list.

‘Ye would be coming off his Saint Pablo Tour, and may have a new project he would want to promote.

It’s time to let hip-hop in the door as the headliner for the Pepsi halftime show, let Kanye tear the stage up. We’ve seen in recent performances the NFL has tried to appeal to different audiences by synchronizing artists from different genres. So pairing Yeezy with another artist could work.

Kanye is one of the most polarizing artists in the world. As we see time to time ‘Ye could explode at any moment or go on one of his streams of consciousness (rants), so the NFL’s hesitancy is understandable, as he would turn off some of the audience.

You cannot deny his talent and creative ability though, the guy is a genius. It is the perfect time for a Kanye West halftime performance.

Listen to the kids bro!

Tone Loc Detained After Confronting Family Over Confederate Flag Hat

West Coast rapper Tone Loc was reportedly detained at the Midland International Air & Space Port in Texas on Sunday (Mar. 24). He was reportedly handcuffed by airport security after aggressively confronting the parents of a teenage boy who was wearing a Confederate flag hat, CBS7 reports.

The incident reportedly started when the 53-year-old– born Anthony Terrell Smith– confronted a teenager who was wearing the controversial hat at baggage claim.

"How are you going to wear that in front of a black man?" Loc asked the boy, according to witnesses.

The teenage boy's parents reportedly stepped in and reprimanded the rapper for talking to their son in such an aggressive tone. The rapper apologized but continued to state that the boy should not be wearing the hat.

The argument didn't stop there though. The family and Loc continued the heated altercation outside. In a video obtained by an NBC affiliate, the "Wild Thing" artist could be heard shouting: "F**k all that Confederate sh*t."

Authorities were later called to the scene where they separated both parties and detained Loc. Once the situation de-escalated, the handcuffs were removed, and Loc was permitted to leave. No criminal charges were filed.

Watch a clip of the incident below.

Rico Nasty To Release 'Anger Management' LP In April

Rico Nasty allowed much time to go by without new music. Since the release of her debut album Nasty last year, the rapper has released a steady amount of singles and slayed guest spots on tracks with Doja Cat and Amine. Now the 21-year-old is ready to drop another LP perfectly titled, Anger Management. 

On Sunday (March 24), Rico hopped on Instagram Live to share the news. A date hasn't been put in place but she assured that the project will "probably come out in April." Like many of her projects, Rico will team up with producer extraordinaire Kenny Beats. Rico revealed how she wants fans "to really enjoy it" as she will jump into different sounds and styles.

From what Rico disclosed in her Instagram Live, Anger Management will feature guest spots from Earthgang and "Intro part 2" rapper Splurge.

The "Countin' Up'" artist has always been unique in her style and comfortable in her own skin. Nasty, which was featured on our EOY lists last year, showed how successful Rico is at mixing trap and pop. Seems like fans can expect the same magic this time around.

Rico was most recently at SXSW and will perform at Coachella in April.
