Rapper Travis Scott to join Maroon 5 for SB LIII halftime show

Maroon 5 is padding out its lineup for the Super Bowl LIII halftime show, adding rapper Travis Scott to the performance, according to multiple reports.

Scott, a six-time Grammy Award nominee, will be working with Maroon 5 for the first time when they perform on the Mercedes-Benz Stadium field in Atlanta. Other artists could still be added to the halftime show as well.

Jay-Z, who has been highly critical of the NFL over its treatment of former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, is attempting to talk Scott out of performing, according to Variety.

Scott's "Sicko Mode," which was nominated for a Grammy for best rap performance and best rap song, spent one week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 earlier this month.

TMZ first reported that Scott would be part of the halftime show.
