The Philadelphia Eagles are supporting Meek Mill following his controversial prison sentence by using one of his songs for the Super Bowl.

It’s been confirmed that the NFL team will run out to Meek’s “Dreams and Nightmares (Intro)” during the big game on Sunday. During a press conference, defensive end Brandon Graham explained, “If you’re going to go with a Philly song, that’s the one you’re going with.”

This has been a pre-game song for the team for a few months, but now, the entire nation gets to watch as the team preps to possibly to take home a championship to Meek.

Although behind bars, the rapper released a statement that read: “It really lifted my spirit to hear the team rally around my songs because that’s why I make music. To inspire others and bring people together. The Eagles have also motivated me with the way they’ve overcome tough situations and injuries to succeed this year.”

The song, which was released in 2012, has been the anthem for many pre-game rituals and has reportedly been compared to that of “Rocky.” Drake even tweeted about the track: “Dreams and Nightmares Intro really one of the best rap moments of our generation.”

Last year, fans rapped the song during a protest to free Meek Mill. If you recall, the Philly rapper was sentenced to 2-4 years behind bars for violation of probation in a gun and drug case from 2008.
