The artists explained why it’s important that hip hop is a focus in the 2022 Super Bowl.

He said that it’s an LA Super Bowl featuring an LA team and LA hip hop and soul.

Snoop said: “This is a great moment considering the stadium was built a couple years ago. I have people I know who built the stadium…this is a blessing. The Super Bowl is the biggest sporting event in the world, and hip hop is the biggest form of music in the world.”

He said that Blige is the “Queen of R and B” and Dre is the “King of hip hop,” describing hip hop as “representing about change and moving forward. We know a lot of people didn’t want hip hop on stage, but we’re here now and ain’t nothing you can do about it.”

Dre called hip hop the “biggest genre of music on the planet right now.” He said it took too long for “us to be recognized…We’re going to do it so big that they can’t deny us in the future.”

Dre said they are going to be “dope” on stage.
