Waka Flocka Flame thinks Atlanta artists should be playing Super Bowl LIII

Waka Flocka Flame doesn’t think Maroon 5 should be headlining the halftime show for Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta, he thinks it should be someone from the city’s storied rap community.

“I think for the Super Bowl you should have someone from Atlanta representing Atlanta,” he told TMZ. “Just because the Super Bowl’s here so we could give them that spice.”

The Atlanta rapper, 32, didn’t just come to complain either, he had suggestions as to who the league could’ve booked instead.

“I think they should have somebody like Migos, Future,” he said. “I could come play ‘Hard in da Paint.’ They need somebody from Atlanta in there. It’s only right.”

But it doesn’t surprise Waka that the NFL would overlook the city and its musical legacy. “It’s not fair, but this is the NFL we’re talking about,” he said. “They’re not fair.”

“You coming to ‘the biggest black state in America,’ ” he added. “Why won’t you let a black artist perform?”

It should be noted that the lineup for the halftime show hasn’t been fully finalized. Billboard reports that the league is looking into adding rappers Cardi B and Travis Scott to the bill, though neither of them is from Atlanta.

But Waka was quick to stress that he has nothing against Adam Levine and company, he just wishes the NFL would’ve looked at the city hosting the event for the night’s entertainment.

“Maroon 5?” he said. “They legends but let’s be real.”
