    Lil Wayne Begs for 2025 Super Bowl Halftime Show in His Hometown

    New Orleans, LA – Lil Wayne, the rap superstar and hometown hero of New Orleans, has made his wish clear: he wants to perform at the 2025 Super Bowl halftime show. He revealed this during a chat on YG and Stevie’s 4HUNNID podcast, where he expressed his eagerness for the opportunity.

    “I would love to do it, man. It’s my dream. It’s in my city. It’s the biggest stage in the world. I gotta do it,”

    he said.

    Despite his well-known fandom for the Green Bay Packers, Lil Wayne is considered the early favorite to perform at the halftime show. His hometown hosts the NFL’s championship game next February. According to the betting site BetOnline, the odds for Lil Wayne to perform at the halftime show are +250, making him the favorite.

    Other potential performers include Taylor Swift (+450), Drake (+490), Nicki Minaj (+490), Frank Ocean (+950), DJ Khaled (+1200), Justin Bieber (+1500), Miley Cyrus (+2500), Kelly Clarkson (+3400), and Bad Bunny (+6000).

    However, as of now, Lil Wayne has not received any official invitation from the NFL or the halftime show producers. He hopes his upcoming albums, Tha Carter VI and I Am Not a Human Being III, set to release in 2024, will bring him recognition.

    “I’m working hard on my music, man. I got some fire coming out. I think they’re going to love it. I think it’s going to make them want me on that stage,”

    he said.

    Despite his enthusiasm, he acknowledges that his music and prior legal troubles may not cater to the broad audience of the Super Bowl. He has faced several charges and lawsuits over the years, including gun possession, drug possession, assault, and copyright infringement.

    “I know I’m not the safest choice, man. I know I’m not the most family-friendly, man. But I’m real, man. I’m authentic. I’m me. And I think that’s what the people want to see, man. They want to see the real Lil Wayne,”

    he said.

    The 2025 Super Bowl will be played on Sunday, Feb. 9, at Caesars Superdome in New Orleans, LA. The venue has hosted seven Super Bowls, the last in 2013, when Beyoncé headlined the halftime show.

    Born and raised in New Orleans, Lil Wayne strongly connects to his city. He has donated money and resources to various causes, including Hurricane Katrina relief, education, and health care. He has collaborated with many local artists like Master P, Juvenile, and Birdman.

    He said performing at the Super Bowl in his hometown would be his ultimate honor and achievement.

    “It would mean everything to me, man. It would be the greatest moment of my life, man. It would be the greatest gift to my city, man. It would be the greatest show ever, man. Trust me, man. I would kill it, man. I would make history, man. Just give me a chance, man. Please, man. Please,”

    he pleaded.
