On Thursday, it was announced that this year’s Super Bowl halftime show will feature a group of rap and hip-hop legends in Dr. Dre, Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige, and Kendrick Lamar.
One of the most-watched television performances of the year may end up setting new viewership records with this lineup due to the epic levels of timelessness from this group. All five of these artists are still played today — yes, Lamar is much more modern than the rest — and will be played for years and years into the future.
