Scott is now confirmed for an appearance during Super Bowl LIII to be held Sunday, Feb. 3, at Atlanta's Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

It's official. Travis Scott and Big Boi are going to the Super Bowl with Maroon 5.

Scott also announced that he and the National Football League are making a joint $500,000 donation to social justice nonprofit Dream Corps.

Pop superstar Rihanna also reportedly put a quick end to any Super bowl appearances to show support for Kaepernick. They released their debut album Songs About Jane in 2002 and have gone on to win three Grammy Awards.

Pacquiao vs Mayweather: Rematch Only Happening If American Boxer Wants It

Pompeo confident of US deal with Turkey to protect Kurds
The US-led coalition on Saturday fired over 20 missiles against jihadist positions, the Observatory said. The comments drew a rebuke from Erdogan, who slammed them as a "serious mistake".

Multiple reports suggested the band was having a tough time finding guests to perform with them in light of the NFL's treatment of quarterback Colin Kaepernick. In partnership with the league, Scott, 26, will make a $500,000 contribution to Dream Corps, a non-profit organization that champions social justice.

Despite the agreement, Scott's performance was received with its fair share of negativity, including from Black Panther's Michael B. Jordan, who told TMZ that his performance goes against what the rapper stands for. But he, Maroon 5 and Big Boi are all affiliated with the Irving Azoff-helmed Full Stop Management, which apparently carried the day. However, he again stirred some controversy when he performed Minnesota-native Prince's "I Would Die 4 U" with a giant projection of the late artist on a large sheet behind the stage.

Talk of who would perform at the February 3 game at Mercedes-Benz Stadium had been ongoing for months, with reports that several artists had refused requests out of protest of the NFL.

Some of the biggest names in music and entertainment have performed at Super Bowl halftime shows over the years, including Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Aerosmith, Tom Petty, and Bruce Springsteen just to name a few.
