The NFL alerted football goers worldwide about this year’s Super Bowl Halftime Show lineup, headlined by Eminem, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar, and Mary J. Blige. But, it seems like another notable figure has a request for how the show should run.
Eazy-E‘s daughter recently chimed in about the performances, suggesting that the NFL should pay tribute to her late father. She insisted this would be a perfect opportunity because Compton hip-hop vets Dr. Dre and Kendrick Lamar will be wowing crowds.
While she understands fitting five major stars into a 20-minute time slot is tough, she says it wouldn’t hurt to do a quick shoutout. Eazy-E’s daughter adds that Eazy-E would be “proud” to see an extension of himself on stage.
Both Dre and Eazy-E were the founders of N.W.A. Unfortunately, Eazy-E passed away in 1995 due to complications from HIV/AIDS. The group parted ways in 1991.
Lamar has been vocal about how Eazy-E has influenced him. “I wouldn’t be here today if it weren’t for Eazy,” the rapper wrote back in 2015.
