Travis Scott agreed to perform at the Super Bowl LIII halftime show on the condition that the NFL make a donation to a charitable cause.
In a statement to People's Jordan Runtagh, Scott said he made a $500,000 donation in partnership with the NFL to Dream Corps, a non-profit organization that advocates for social justice.
"I back anyone who takes a stand for what they believe in," the rapper said. "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."
Jay-Z, who has been vocal in his support of Colin Kaepernick, reportedly tried to talk Scott out of performing. A petition was also launched in November encouraging headliners Maroon 5 to drop out of the halftime show in support of the embattled quarterback.
