Since the championship game was revealed to be held in Atlanta, many hip-hop fans speculated on which acts they’d like to see put on a live show: Migos, Future, T.I., Ludacris, 2 Chainz and many more were some of the top mentions.

With Atlanta’s amazing hip hop and R&B Heritage the NFL goes with Maroon 5 for the Super Bowl halftime show. (Variety reporting). Lame.

I actually like Maroon 5 but we couldn’t get any hip-hop artists for a Super Bowl in Atlanta? pic.twitter.com/8zSCLn6IiC

Please, I beg of you, let’s not let the Jimmy Butler news distract us from the fact that Maroon 5 is headlining the Super Bowl IN ATLANTA.
