Eminem is a “Rap God” who has performed at many of the biggest venues in the world, but in a Thursday (February 10) interview with Sway on SiriusXM’s Shade45, the Detroit legend said he’s feeling nervous for his big show at Super Bowl LVI.
“Imma tell you, It’s fucking nerve-wracking. It’s fucking nerve-wracking,” Em told Sway. “Like to me…there’s nothing more final than live TV, you know what I’m saying? So like if you fuck up, that fuck up is there forever.”
The highly-anticipated Pepsi Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show with Eminem, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamar is set to finally take place on Sunday (February 13), and rumor has it 50 Cent might even be stopping by.
On Thursday (February 10), footage emerged online of a rehearsal at SoFi Stadium, and viewers could clearly hear 50 Cent’s 2003 classic “In Da Club” playing in the background.
People were quick to assume this meant Fif would be making an appearance, especially considering the mogul broke into the industry under the tutelage of Dr. Dre and Eminem. He has also worked with Snoop Dogg multiple times and he recently gave Mary a starring role as Monet in his series Power Book II: Ghost.
Anticipation for the performance exploded after a cinematic trailer for the show popped up on YouTube in January. Dubbed The Call, the three-minute clip shows each performer heading to SoFi Stadium as if they’re superheroes. The trailer was helmed by Straight Outta Compton director F. Gary Gray, who said in a statement, “as a super fan, I consider it an honor and privilege to authentically build and create this moment with five of the most legendary artists in music history. It’s been a blast!”
