The upcoming highly anticipated Pepsi Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show lineup that will take place on February 13, will include Hip-Hop heavyweights Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige, and Kendrick Lamar.
The relative of a former group member of Dr. Dre’s seminal gangsta group, N.W.A. is hoping that her father gets a shout out and recognition in front of the expected 100 million Super Bowl viewers.
According to TMZ, Ebie, the daughter of late Hip-Hop pioneer, and rapper, Eric “Eazy-E” Wright thinks her father being acknowledged and recognized at the halftime performance during the Super Bowl would be moving and monumental.
Ebie was 3 years old when her father, the founder of “Ruthless Records” founder and N.W.A. member, passed away 26 years ago. She told TMZ that it will be a touching and monumental tribute to her father’s legacy if he can get a shout out during the halftime performance in California.
The NFL championship game is taking place at SoFi Stadium, which is located in Inglewood, less than 15 miles from the famed city of Compton, which Eazy-E and N.W.A. made famous at the beginning of their careers.
Ebie also feels that if her father were still alive, he would probably be a part of the show. Kendrick Lamar, who also grew up in Compton, has previously acknowledged her father’s influence in his career of choice.
