Colin Kaepernick Denies That Travis Scott 'Consulted' Him About Super Bowl

Scott and Kaepernick reportedly had at least one phone discussion before the rapper confirmed his Super Bowl appearance, sources tell Variety.

The NFL confirmed the news of Maroon 5, Scott and Big Boi performing during the halftime show, with Scott also revealing that he and the organization agreed to donate $500,000 to the non-profit social-justice organization Dream Corps.

Scott will perform alongside Maroon 5 and Big Boi at the Pepsi Super Bowl LIII Halftime Show at Atlanta's Mercedes-Benz Stadium on February 3. For example, Cardi B, who appeared on Maroon 5's #1 single "Girls Like You", is not scheduled to perform, and it's been widely reported that she refused to perform over the NFL's treatment of Kaepernick. Kaepernick also retweeted this on his account.

"A source close to Scott said that while the two did not necessarily agree, they emerged from the conversation with mutual respect and understanding, with the rapper taking the stance that everyone makes a statement in their own way", Variety wrote. "I'm saying the only way for them to preserve their reputation is to take a knee during their set to show the hundreds of millions of people watching their solidarity with Colin Kaepernick and the players who are protesting police brutality".

The "Sicko Mode" rapper, 26, reportedly talked to the former National Football League star before signing on to be part of the Super Bowl LIII halftime show next month, according to TMZ. "I am proud to support Dream Corps and the work they do that will hopefully inspire and promote change".

The Super Bowl halftime controversy surrounding Travis Scott has devolved into a he-said-he-said.
