Rapper Lil Wayne recently shared his fervent aspiration to headline the 2025 Super Bowl, slated to take place in his hometown of New Orleans. In an exclusive interview with Taylor Rooks for Bleacher Report, Weezy opened up about his deep-seated desire to perform at Super Bowl LIX, scheduled for February 9, 2025, at the iconic Caesars Superdome.
Reflecting on his artistic journey, Lil Wayne expressed his burning desire to see his name atop the list of Super Bowl performers, akin to the satisfaction he felt seeing his name in the coveted Billboard magazine during earlier stages of his career.
Emphasizing the artistic achievement, he clarified that this aspiration transcends the realm of sports, underscoring the significance of the Super Bowl stage for musicians.
While recounting cherished career moments such as performing at the Grammys and hosting the Lil Weezyana Fest, Lil Wayne acknowledged that headlining the Super Bowl remains a pinnacle moment on his bucket list.
Despite having graced the Grammy stage and winning accolades, the prospect of captivating a massive audience on the Super Bowl platform holds a unique allure for the acclaimed artist.
Addressing the potential performance, Lil Wayne humorously looked into the camera, preemptively apologizing to friends and collaborators. He asserted his intention to deliver a solo performance, excluding any guest appearances, with a lighthearted nod towards New Orleans jazz greats as possible exceptions.
In a playful moment, Lil Wayne assured his peers in the music industry, especially those associated with him, that his Super Bowl performance would be a solo act. He humorously noted that he would sing all the hooks written by others, playfully apologizing to artists like Bobby Valentino.
However, he did concede that a collaboration with Beyoncé would be an exception, warranting a joint performance on the grand stage.
