Travis Scott reportedly told NFL he would agree to perform at the Super Bowl only if they committed to donating money towards a cause for social justice.
During negotiations, Travis Scott made the NFL agree to make a joint donation towards a charitable cause, Billboard reports. Travis and the NFL teamed up to donate $500K to “social justice accelerator” Dream Corps, an organization founded by Van Jones in 2014.
“I back anyone who takes a stand for what they believe in,” Travis said in a statement. “I know being an artist that it’s in my power to inspire. So before confirming the Super Bowl Halftime performance, I made sure to partner with the NFL on this important donation. I am proud to support Dream Corps and the work they do that will hopefully inspire and promote change.”
