NFL Owners Decline Eminem And Kanye's Million Dollar Offers

(AllHipHop News) Don’t think the NFL is sparing no expense now that the Super Bowl is being held in New Jersey for the first time.

The NFL owners wanted to have a party with a major celebrity artist, but both Eminem and Kanye West had excessive fees.

For a performance, Eminem offered the owners a $2 million price, which they declined. Kanye West was also turned down after he presented a $1 million fee. The relatively small concert event will happen after a dinner with about 1,500 people, according to TMZ.

Ultimately, the NFL owners group decided to hire Janelle Monae for $150,000.

    Damn, them diva ass niggas done lost they entire minds. But hey when all else fails, you can always find Janelle Monae on clearance

    • Clearance? She still getting $150K for a 1500 person event that lasts only a few hours. Might not be some astronomical, unrealistic number, but I’ll be damned if that ain’t still a come up!

      please, Janelle is that woman. learn something.

  • therealjjohnson

    I can see if it was the Super Bowl half time performance. But just for 1,500 people? Nah…

  • Chris

    Eminem is out of his mind. That’s off-season rebuilding money. SMH.

  • jd

    Monae gonna kill that shit.

  • ursocalledgod

    good!! these diva ass lames are out of their minds! the NFL could of paid that EASILY but its the principle! Monae is more of a creative artist then either one.

  • cromthelaughinggod7

    Monae is the shit. She is as original as they come. She is really cool in person. I saw her perform. It was dope. She is not a copy cat or a diva! She just put her status in an even greater position because now people with money will remember this.

    well more then likely those attending that dinner weren’t all hip hop to begin with.

    The hiphop acts better not get to big. Cause they may find out how non relevant hiphop is today.

    • Terrance

      And what genre of music is MORE relevant than Hip-Hop?

      • Super_Hero

        Country music. Maybe you too young but Rock and Alternative was more relevant then Hip Hop about less then 10 yrs ago. Hip Hop took over around 2005. it will happen again. Hip Hop used to be a 30 mins show on MTV. Styles changes before your eyes.

      • Terrance

        Your talking about what WAS, I’m talking about NOW. Hip-Hop RULES THE WORLD. BTW, isn’t this a Hip-Hop site? If it is so IRRELEVANT, why are YOU here?

      • Behonest

        Country may be big in the south according to white people. Hip hop is liked by all races, played all across the country, has tours all over the nation and overseas, country music doesnt rule the world. You see russians (In a Wu tang concert in Russia) singing wu tang clan songs in english, lyric for lyric. No one outside here cares about country, cept maybe johnny cash.

    Janell Monae is fine

  • John Q. Public

    …and shouldn’t the title say Eminem and Kanye decline the NFL’s million dollar offers???

    • No because we only know the asking prices of the artist, we don’t know what the counter offer was made by the NFL….

  • dee

    this is like walking into a liquor store with intentions to buy a bottle of Ace of Spades, looking at the price and walking out with a bottle of Moet instead

  • Sean Power

    The NFL doesn’t need any rapper they where just being kinda, the NFl owners din’t become billionaires but over pay people for hours of work

    • Golgo 13

      if there billionaires then i dunno why they couldn’t pay kanye an Eminem that much money

      • anemia716

        first off, it’s they’re, not there. secondly, they became billionaires by making smart business moves. 1 mil and 2 mil for a performance POST event and serving such a small amount of people (relative to some) is out right extortion. I’m glad they got turned down. over hyped ass artists nowadays. Janelle would out perform both on stage. she puts on a better show.

      • Behonest

        Its post the game? Not halftime? Well my post looks like ass. 2 mill for after game performance what the hell is he thinking.

    • LaurynHernandex

      lol I know. They’ll pay for a rockstar like ACDC or something. Only rappers that could sell out superbowl and keep a majority entertained is Jay Z and Drake because white ppl love them

      • Behonest

        Despite all the music in the stadium are rap tracks. I heard f*cking DMX ruff riders anthem during the game. They had to stop at the verse obviously cause the first or second word is the N word.

  • Eric Cartman

    Eminem could’ve made an easy 400k

  • anemia716

    Janelle Monae has much better stage presence and is a better “performer” in every sense of the word. they made the right choice.

    Kanye will do anything for money but I would Em didn’t even wanna go, hence charging something outrageous knowing they won’t pay and if they do, fat payday for him.

    Kanye will do anything for money but I would imagine Em didn’t even wanna go, hence charging something outrageous knowing they won’t pay and if they do, fat payday for him.
