Hip-Hop and R&B Community React to Stunning 2015 Super Bowl
Super Bowl XLIX is officially done. The New England Patriots were victorious over the Seattle Seahawks (final score of 28-24) in what was a down-to-the-wire game. In the final moments of the event, Seattle called a controversial pass play on second with 26 seconds left instead of running again.
Critics were torn on the decision that clinched the game. “I can’t believe the call,” NBC sports analyst Cris Collinsworth said. “You have Marshawn Lynch. You have a guy who’s been borderline unstoppable.” Retired NFL Hall of Famer Deion Sanders dubbed it the “worst call in Super Bowl history.”
Here is how your favorite hip-hop and R&B stars reacted to the thrilling game and its’ stunning end.
Macklemore tried to stay positive for his hometown Seahawks team. “See you next year” he tweeted. Big Sean expressed his excitement, “What a f—ing game!” while Elle Varner gave the Patriots props too. Singers like Keri Hilson actually bet (and won) on the New England Patriots. “Anyway, I won the bet! (Sorry bae!),” she posted, holding a football in her hand.

Bridget Kelly was one of the artists to call out Seattle for their final play. “All you needed was a half a yard smh,” she shared on Twitter. Probably the happiest star at the Super Bowl was Rick Ross. Rozay actually got to hang out with the Vince Lombardi Super Bowl trophy. “BOSSSSSSSS #Superbowl,” the rapper wrote on Instagram, as we was cheesing with Patriots owner Robert Kraft.
All you needed was a half a yard smh
