Grammy-winning rapper Lil Wayne has offered up some thoughts on the topic of football and, notably, how he sees next weekend’s Super Bowl XLVIII match-up between the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks going down.
Although Weezy F. Baby would not predict a score, he did admit having a hard time believing one-time Super Bowl champion Peyton Manning‘s Broncos would fall to the Seahawks.
“Honestly, I don’t want to use the word ‘surprised,’ but it is unexpected to see Seattle in the Super Bowl. I expected Peyton. He’s been there before. And I love Russell Wilson. But they are not playing in Seattle. I just can’t see Peyton losing. … [Peyton] is special. He is one of a kind. I am glad I am able to live to see him, to see the kind of things he is doing.” (The MMQB)
Wayne also discussed his undying love for the high-energy sport.
“It’s such a natural thing … I don’t know, really. I love it more than anything. The physicality of it, I think. On Sundays, I just sit there, and everybody knows–no phone calls. It’s understood by the people around me–when the games are on, no calls for him.” (The MMQB)
Nearly a week away from the big event, rap mogul Jay Z is expected to ignite some Super Bowl festivities with a show next weekend.
Jay Z will headline DirecTV’s Super Saturday Night party during Super Bowl weekend on Saturday, Feb. 1. The invite-only event will take place at DirecTV’s SuperFan Stadium at New York’s Hudson River Park Pier 40, co-hosted by Mark Cuban‘s AXS TV and Eli Manning. (Billboard)
Leading up to the Super Bowl game, additional hip-hop artists will perform around the area.
Are you ready for six concerts? While two lucky teams will be gearing up to play the game of a lifetime, artists like Drake, J. Cole, TLC, and Diddy will be gearing up to perform the concert of a lifetime. For this year’s Super Bowl festivities, VH1 presents Super Bowl Blitz: Six Nights + Six Concerts, which will be hosted by Nick Cannon and Stacy Keibler. All the action will go down in the greater area of New York City, including the five boroughs and New Jersey. The concert series will run from January 27 to February 1, and will air live at 11 p.m. EST. (Global Grind)
