When word got out that Travis Scott would be performing during the Super Bowl halftime show, social media was ready to throw in him the sunken place alongside his brother-in-law Kanye West.
Well before we decided to officially cancel him, the 26-year-old rapper shows us he may be as lost after all.
According to People, the rapper only agreed to do the performance on one condition… the NFL has to help donate $500,000 to social justice reform.
“I back anyone who takes a stand for what they believe in,” Scott said in a statement to PEOPLE. “I know being an artist that it’s in my power to inspire. So before confirming the Super Bowl Halftime performance, I made sure to partner with the NFL on this important donation. I am proud to support Dream Corps and the work they do that will hopefully inspire and promote change.”
Founded by political commentator Van Jones, Dream Corps is a non-profit organization organization that aims to create solutions for the injustices we face today.
“Today, the Dream Corps brings people together — including very unlikely allies — to create a better future for all, ” the org’s mission statement says. “We work to close prison doors and open doors of opportunity. We believe that everyone deserves a fair chance to achieve their potential. While always acknowledging the ‘battle ground’ issues that divide us, we focus on the “common ground’ solutions that unite us.”
Jones has already made headlines with Kim Kardashian last year when they took a trip to the White House to discuss prison reform with Donald Trump.
While many people took the forgiving route, some folks still ain’t here for Travis’ performance.
Hot 97’s Ebro called the new father lame for not dropping out altogether.
What if I told you the “Shutdown” is NOT about the wall??
What if I told you the organization the NFL is donating to for Travis Scott has a board with a Rothschild on it?
Do you care?
Fuck it let’s watch the games & dance!

He then turned his words to Big Boi who is also set to perform
What do you think? Should we allow Scott back in the cookout?
