Kanye West has performed on some of the world’s biggest stage, and now fans want him to rock the mic on football’s biggest grandiose stage.
According to XXL, TeamKanyeDaily started up the hashtag #KanyeWestForSuperBowl51 to urge the NFL to have the Chicago rapper-producer perform during halftime. They are encouraging other fans to tweet videos of Yeezy performing with the hashtag to convince the NFL that West is the perfect choice for next year’s Super Bowl 51.
Although West is known for his exciting stage performances, the Super Bowl halftime show is often promoted as a family-oriented spectacle. In other words, harsh language, explicit visuals (sex, nudity or otherwise) of any kind are strictly prohibited. You can thank Janet Jackson for that.
And ‘Ye is not going to sugarcoat his performance because someone in middle America might get offended.
But who knows? West might consider it and tone down the theatrics. It could happen.
Check out some of the fans’ reactions below.
Meanwhile, if you want to hear Kanye West’s music in a whole new light then check out the six-song jazz compilation, A Million a Minute: A Kanye West Jazz Medley.
The project was created by a 22-year-old UCLA post-grad student who goes by the alias Big Willy. The musician was bored and decided to past the time by remixing some of his favorite Kanye West songs.
Yeezy tracks like “Jesus Walks,” “Heartless” and “Bound 2″ get breezy jazzy updates. And it sounds fantastic.
Listen to the compilation below.

#KanyeWestForSuperBowl51 would be dope, but it's a stretch. Y'all know Kanye too unpredictable for white people.

Production wise, no one is on Ye's level. He'd put on a crazy show. #KanyeWestForSuperBowl51
