Nick Cannon has questioned Travis Scott’s decision to perform at the Super Bowl halftime show.
Travis will perform at the football game alongside Big Boi and Maroon 5 – despite many artists reportedly turning down the gig to support Colin Kaepernick, who protested police brutality, racial injustice, and systematic oppression by taking a knee during the national anthem in 2016.
Appearing on BET’s Raq Rants, Nick said: “I’m team Kaepernick all day. To me, I call it cultural equity.”
“So we’re not mad at Big Boi for being on the Super Bowl — he’s for the people. But someone like Travis Scott, he’s got to walk gingerly.”

When the host asked how Travis can be ‘for the people’ Nick replied: “It’s more about truly having integrity to who you are in your music, your art form, the people you choose to interact with, the people you choose to procreate with.”
After he mentioned ‘procreate’, Nick was then asked about the rapper’s girlfriend, Kylie Jenner and their daughter Stormi, to which he responded: “That decision wasn’t for the culture, but we’re not mad at you!”
The 38-year-old defended his past relationships with different women and said: “I love white women, let’s set the record straight. But that’s the thing, it’s cultural equity at the end of the day.”
