Maroon 5 will pronounce the halftime show of Super Bowl LIII with guests Big Boi and Travis Scott – CNN

And there's an added bonus: Atlanta-native Big Boi and Travis Scott will also perform during the show, according to a release from the NFL.

Big Boi, half of the Atlanta-based rapduo Outkast, tweeted a promotional video for the rest day on Sunday.

"" #SBLIII ATL, let's get it! "He tweeted.

The NFL said that once hip hop once its own "Rap Mount Rushmore & # 39; got, Big Boi would certainly occupy a place as Atlanta & # 39; s & # 39; s most important wordplayer & # 39; and funkiest gentleman & # 39;

The competition also said: "Maroon 5, Travis Scott and Big Boi join an acclaimed list of recent halftime acts", including Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga, Coldplay, Katy Perry and Missy Elliott.

News that an Atlanta hip-hop artist is heading into the Super Bowl this year comes months after it was announced that the big game would be held in the music-rich Atlanta. When the singer Bruno Mars tweeted the location of the game last February, tweette, this was the occasion for the NFL to celebrate the incredible Hip Hop artist from Atlanta & # 39 ;.

Mars also added some suggestions for Atlanta artists who could perform during the halftime show.

"Outkast, T.I Gucci, lil jon, Jeezy, Jermaine Dupri just to name a few, it would be the best party Tv has ever seen!" he tweeted.

"@NFL all jokes aside, let's make that happen," Mars tweeted.

So when rumors started that Maroon 5 – a pop band based in California – would play the leading role, social media went crazy.

Fans are upset about the halftime show of Maroon 5

People wondered why in Atlanta – where, to quote the song "Welcome to Atlanta" by uber producer Jermaine Dupri, "all playas play" – a choice with local bands was not made.

"Atlanta, home of Outkast, T.I., Future, Ludacris, Usher, etc., gets Maroon 5 to play the damn Super Bowl," tweeted sports analyst Jake Reuse.
Rapper and Atlanta native Ludacris also withheld a picture of themselves in an Atlanta Falcons jersey on Instagram with the caption: "Pardon, say what!?"
