There are many opinions on Travi$ Scott’s decision to perform at NFL Super Bowl LIII’s halftime show this year, as many big acts decided to sit out due to Colin Kaepernick’s negative treatement by the NFL.
TMZ cameras caught up with T.I. and asked the Atlanta rapper about the decision by Scott, Big Boi and to a lesser degree Maroon 5 to perform on February 3.
“I think every man have an opportunity,” he said. “He can make a decision for himself, or he could be selfless. And, nobody can tell someone when to be selfless. That’s every man’s right to choose that moment for themselves. So, if this ain’t something that he wanted to be selfless about, hopefully in the future we’ll see other moments where he will.”
Many have given their opinions on the matter especially after a report from Variety that “a source close to Scott said that while the two did not necessarily agree, they emerged from the conversation with mutual respect and understanding, with the rapper taking the stance that everyone makes a statement in their own way and he felt that the money going toward Dream Corps, combined with the platform provided by the Super Bowl, will do some good,” which was denied by our own Nessa.
