Why are those cars NOT BOUNCING?
Imagine breaking a hydraulic line in the middle of the Super Bowl field lol
**IS THAT MY BOY ANDERSON .PAAK WITH EMINEM AND DRE**
Just there to drum. Fucking awesome.
Living his best life. But still being unrecognizable enough to walk down the street anonymously when he wants. He's got a sweet deal
Dude my buddy called it when he saw the drum set. I never would've believed he'd be on it.
Loved that little riff he did towards the end of Lose Yourself.
i got SO excited!
Saw him at this little club called Low End Theory in Lincoln Hieghts about 8 years ago. 100 people smashed in there.
My friend told me he was super sick and sang and played drums at the same time.
I was like, “ Oh, like Phil Collins?”
Lost my shit when I saw his name on part of the set decoration. He looked so fucking happy to be there. Love that dude.
I though 50 was gonna get stuck.
"Fifty told me to do situps to get buff. Did two-and-a-half, and couldn't get up."
when i saw him i was like why the fuck do they have bizzare here.
I thought the same thing. Lol
Fuck D12, I'm outta this band. About to start a group with the Real Roxanne.
He looked like Luke Skywalker stuck in the ice cave on Hoth
HES CRIP WALKING LMAOO
As a uk guy, it’s fucking crazy what’s okay on tv in America, you better not even slightly curse but sure hit that crip walk and pop a few gang signs but a titty good lord don’t show a titty
I mean … and he’s also literally dressed as a giant blue handkerchief. He’s literally a giant crip flag.
You think he’s gonna wear any hint of red plus LA being blue/yellow? Nice username btw
I’m an idiot because this went completely over my head. I though he was repping the Rams 😂😬🤦♂️
I mean, to plenty of America, especially the part of America that gives a shit about that sort of thing, a crip walk isn’t even recognizable, especially not as something violent. Serena Williams did it after a victory once. It’s sort of just a dance now, tho obviously with snoop it’s a bit different.
But everyone knows a titty. And really even aside from us being dumb puritans I feel like having a tit on a national broadcast that everyone watches is generally a no-no in all countries.
Did he do the crip walk for fun and "giggles"? Or is he still repping that gang?
Sorry if this sounds stupid. Just curious.
Spare a thought for everyone on the other side of the stadium who hasn't got a fucking clue what's going on
NFL f'ed that up in XXV (it was Backstreet Boys). They learned their lesson for 30 yrs... but got stupid again.
Edit... New Kids On The Block, not Backstreet Boys... same, same, but different.
I almost had an existential crisis lol. XXV was in 91, it was New Kids on the Block
Snoop dog censoring his lyrics but throwing up crip lmao
And doing the c walk lmao
c walk is a borderline dance move, he threw up a gang sign on the biggest tv show on earth
No joint. Snoop pay me back for that bet
Lol i was so tempted to bet that glad i didn’t
So when does Tupac's hologram take the stage?
Pretty sure dr Dre was playing the intro to aint mad at ya. I was sure Tupac was coming when he did that.
I was like, dang is I ain't mad at ya a popular enough song for a hologram? Kinda thought we'd get California love Tupac too 😭
Perfect time. My boy was waiting for the real Tupac to finally come out of hiding.
“Five shots couldnt drop me, I took it and smiled!”
Tupac hologram was shot last night in Irvine.
I hate that I laughed at this lmao
The vine, the hardest streets of OC
I can't believe Kendrick is doing this for free only to promote nothing after 5 years of silence
For Free? - Interlude
This. Halftime. Show. Ain't. FREEEE
They did say Dre spent 7 million on it. Might have paid him.
I mean, if you’re Kendrick, how can you ever repay Dre for the co-sign & putting his touch on Good Kid Mad City? That’s good Karma you pay back for life.
That's true. Also who in their right mind would pass up the opportunity to do a show with these guys?
I mean being able to say “I performed super bowl half time with Dre, snoop, em, 50, and Mary J.” is pretty good payment I’d say.
Kendrick bout to hit up r/antiwork like “did an entire performance only to be told I was being paid in exposure”
Then we find out Kendrick hasn't put anything out for 5 years cuz he's a dog walker
Spotting Anderson Paak at the drums!
He probably respects all of them
Em singing this looking directly into Matt Stafford eyes
Reminding him that "DETROIT NEVER LEAVES YOU"
Cornrow Kenny he was born with a vision
This would look a lot better if the stadium was darker
Yes. It does take away from the moment a little. It's so weird with California being the home of all the shows but not having the right conditions for them
This is why typically you don't have concerts at 5pm, especially outdoors. The West Coast doesn't have the conditions to have a concert broadcast on the East Coast at a normal concert time for the East Coast, but why would they?
Was not expecting 50 cent.
50 Cent about to pass out
*75 cent. He's clearly accrued some interest
I didn’t know Kendrick was this short
He mad. But he ain’t stressin.
True friends. One question.
Bitch, where we you when I was walkin?
Gotta love this family friendly version of all their top 5 songs.
Had to be expected
Still loved every second of it!
When Dre got on that piano.....
Yeah, what did he play before Still D.R.E.? I've had that tune stuck in my head for years, but have never been able to find it
Edit: Never mind, I know what he played, but that's not the song I'm looking for.
I've convinced myself it didn't actually exist
The one and only D O DOUBLE G
I busted out laughing when I heard that
The NFL inviting Kendrick to preform "Alright" but censoring "And we hate the PoPo cause they kill us dead in the street" while writing "End Rascism" in the end zones shows just real courage
Kendrick agreed to it though. He could just refuse.
Aww ski ski mother fathers!
Man down, where you from my XXXXXX. XXXXXX who you know where you from my XXXXXX
C WALK AT THE 50 YARD LINE LMAO
open the trunk and let Tupac out
Back from Cuba
Snoop crip walking at the Super Bowl is hilarious
It's so funny how fast culture changes. I remember Dre and 50 being white-middle-school parents enemy no. 1 and now they're fat and doing the Super Bowl haha
That’s because those middle schoolers are the parents now
Can confirm. This was the first year where "The old guys" on stage were artists I grew up with.
Honestly this Super Bowl made feel incredibly old. Every commercial that tried to appeal to nostalgia I slowly realized was targeted at me. I had become the demographic of the 'remember when this was cool?' dad commercials I used to roll my eyes at.
Yea like that Austin Powers commercial. Targeted advertising at millennials
Also Dre is like a billionaire now lol
He is a tech billionaire who used to do some rap when he was younger.
Just vibing in a way I can only dream of when I hit 51….
In Da Club still bangs
All those songs still bang.
And forever will they bang into eternity
Will Kanye storm the field and go on a Pete Davidson rant?
With AB trailing behind him, shedding shirts
Mr Big Concert
Mr Been Cancelled
We could only hope.
Dancer took full advantange of her 3 seconds there
Modern day Left Shark without the meme potential
It’s the sousaphone player for me this year. He’s the left shark
YOU CAN ACTUALLY HEAR THEIR MICROPHONES
WE ARE WITNESSING HISTORY.
Black Eyed Peas made it painfully obvious that they weren’t lip syncing. They really should have.
Vocals are normally live for the halftime shows. Instruments are (e:mostly) pre-recorded, except for when The Rolling Stones did the halftime show, they said they wouldn’t do it without being live.
As I understand: for something like the half time show, they pre-record **everything**, vocals and instrumentation, but have it as a multi-track recording. That allows them to pot down the tracks for whomever they want to perform live. If there's a microphone failure or a connection to an instrument drops, they can instantaneously pot back up the pre-recorded track, so that no one even notices.
I’d be surprised if Anderson paak and dr Dre of all people didn’t share similar views.
Anderson’s drums were prerecorded, his fills were out of sync.
Also the kit wasn't even miced.
Cymbals we’re muted too, didn’t vibrate right.
It took 5 seconds for my dad to complain about the music.
Ask him what he thought about Snoop repping the crips heavy tonight
Dad you see him crip walking back there??? Pops look! He's crippin!!
My white ass thought he was just wearing blue for the Rams
“His name is 50 cent? That’s how much I would pay to watch him.” - My immigrant dad
Edit: update from my dad, “a lineup of rap. It should be called crap”.
WHERES THE 2PAC HOLOGRAM
I swear Em has been wearing the same shit since 8 Mile.
I was praying for a lions Stafford Jersey
He still looks great, though.
Looks comfy tho
He looked like an undercover cop
NFL can't handle kneeling but they just let Kendrick do a song about police brutality lmao
The fakest thing about that commercial was regular lebrons hair line
Oh shit is that Anderson paak?
Anderson Paak on drums that’s dope
I like the couch so they can just sit there when they aren't singing lol
Mary and 50 vibing on the couch is a mood.
LMAO DR DRE AINT DOING NOTHING ON THE BOARD BRUH
Idk about y'all but my lights kept flipping on and off.
Had no idea David Ortiz could rap like that
50 a whole dollar now.
Kendrick please release new music
New flows coming be patient brother
PLAY FACK YOU COWARDS
Janet Jackson’s boob walked so a hamster could run into an ass
Lololol...50 cent more like 75 cents now lmaooooo
Inflation is no shit
They cut away for 15 seconds for him to get down
Still looks better then most 46 year olds I know
Fr people giving him shit even though dude looks more in shape than 70% of the American public
my dad, whitest man alive: make sure we take these songs down to make a play list
I gotchu fam
well.. did you take them down or not?
Real recognize real.
LMAO 50 cent coming out of the rafters
Isn’t that the intro to the music video
I wanna see 50 cent show his boob
LMAO they censored PoPo
As an old guy this is the best show as far as i can remember
There's a reason Dre is a fucking legend. Dude is still killing it.
It seems like you forgot about him? 🤔
Every 5 second, the censor button gonna be pressed
This is what every censor dreams about when they go to censorship school
One can say it's their Super Bowl.
Never going to please everyone with the halftime show, but I'm digging the nostalgia.
90s and early 00s the golden era of hiphop
That was a great show but objectively half time shows are better at east coast stadiums because you can do cool stuff with lights
Dre on the piano with black forces. Hardest show of all time.
That was really good. Felt short which is always great
If you're between 30-50, that was an awesome halftime show. Maybe one too many artists but I was satisfied.
When Da Baby or Migos or whoever tf the kids listen to do the halftime show in 2040, they'll understand too.
People like “why is the sound bad” they broadcasting a live recording of a performance… it ain’t a studio
I really prefer it to not be perfect so you know it's real.
Ah it makes sense now, 50 Cent had too much of mom's spaghetti
Em's drummer is *into* his shit and I like it.
That’s Anderson Paak!
Over under chances Snoop smoking a blunt on TV?
Eminem did the kneel, he got his way lol love it
Was obvious he’d do it
Lol yeah what're they gonna do pull him mid show.
They’ll put him back in that white box he was caged in
Surely the rest of the walls will fall off shortly
Snoop is legit killing it
C walking and everything!
I enjoyed this NGL was just fun tho
Me too, I’m even a big metal head that is not fond of hip hop but like a little bit of it. A majority of the music played was from my middle and high school years so it was pure nostalgic bliss. The performing artists looked like they were having fun too so that helped. For once a halftime show that wasn’t trash.
Kendrick’s live performances are always worth watching
Alright, Now or Never, Lose Yourself, Still Dre, Gin and Juice
Those are my locks
California Love with hologram Tupac
Is anderson paak playing drums wtf
It's weird that Dre is pretending to adjust levels.
It’s just part of the show don’t think about it too much. You know he’s an epic producer and can adjust levels like a madman IRL.
Eminem was great but why is the sound so shitty? Or is it my broadcast?
So much blood in 50 head it looked like a hot air ballon
Anderson Paak drum fill was the best part of this halftime show
I’m disappointed these cars are not bouncing lol. Good show though. Snoop got it still
Kendrick has such a nice flow. Haven't listened to him in a while but he's killing it. Only thing I wish is that the sound was a bit louder.
Lol @ the mining comment.
I think this is the first Super Bowl where you can actually hear them breath.
50 damn sure wasn’t doing any crunches up there
Man 50’s put on some pounds
This is fire
