"Yo is it true that the next Super Bowl is in Atlanta?"

". @NFL S--t I just wanna help curate that show, and I’ll only charge like a billion"

". @NFL all jokes aside please lets make that happen"

Gucci Mane appears to be interested.

This year's Super Bowl halftime performance was Justin Timberlake, who did not have any guest appearances but paid tribute to Prince.
