Fans were treated to awe-inspiring performances by a constellation of hip hop stars during the halftime show of the 56th Super Bowl at the SoFi Stadium, California in the early hours of Monday.
The teeming crowd at the stadium was dazzled with back-to-back hits from the discographies of Dr Dre, Snoop Dogg, Mary J Blige, 50 Cent, and Kendrick Lamar — the show headliners.
The 15-minute long show of music and culture was shoe-horned into the middle-way point of the National Football League (NFL) final game of the season between the Los Angeles Rams and the Cincinnati Bengal, which the former won 23-21.
The performance kicked off with Dr Dre emerging from the floor while seated in front of a giant mixing desk.
After a few minutes of displaying his magic on the production table, the super-producer announced Snoop Dog as the first performer.
Snoop sent the full capacity stadium into rancorous cheers as he belched out the lyrics of ‘The Next Episode.’
The cameras then slid down to reveal 50 Cent hung upside-down from a stage below.
The rapper would drop from the platform to his feet and perform ‘In Da Club’ to the crowd.
Mary J Blige was next, and she was full of energy and voice as she sang and danced along to ‘Family Affair’ and ‘No More Drama.’
Kendrick Lamar was then passed the microphone, and he was flawless in delivering songs like ‘M.A.A.D City’ and ‘Alright.’
Eminem then shot into the stage with a blast of ‘Forgot About Dre’ followed by ‘Lose Yourself.’
The show was rounded up with a group performance of ‘Still D.R.E’, as the crowd erupted into a seismic round of applause.
