Right after the Philadelphia Eagles sent the overhyped New England Patriots packing in Super Bowl 52, all eyes turned to next year’s Super Bowl, which will be hosted in Atlanta.
And because the city is synonymous with Hip Hop, thee’s a growing push to have Atlanta’s hometown rappers perform as part of the Super Bowl entertainment.
As everybody knows, Atlanta is the capital of Black music, especially Hip Hop. So the bench of potential performers is a deep one: names such as T.I., Outkast, Ludacris, Gucci Mane, 2 Chainz, Young Jeezy, Migos, and Future instantly come to mind, and that’s just for starters.
And that’s not even mentioning the singers such as Xscape, Jagged Edge, 112, TLC, and even Toni Braxton.
The list could go on and on and on…
Recent multi-Grammy winner Bruno Mars has thrown his opinion into the mix, saying he wants to see ATL entertainers take the stage at the event.
. @NFL you have the opportunity to celebrate incredible Hip Hop Artist from Atlanta Next year.

Its expected the NFL will work with the music industry to try to include as many ATL performers as possible into the event.
