Super Bowl LVI is only a month away, as the big game and halftime show approach, Snoop Dogg is promising a historic show as he takes the stage with Kendrick Lamar, Dr. Dre, Mary J. Blige, and Eminem. 

Snoop Dogg made an appearance on Monday Night Football with NFL legends Peyton and Eli Manning where the Long Beach emcee shared how grateful he was to be performing with the All-Star cast of musicians on Super Bowl Sunday. 

"We're so thankful that NFL is accepting hip-hop on stage and letting us do what we do," Snoop said. "We plan on putting together a great show and giving the people something they've been waiting for."

"They love to watch a great Super Bowl game and at halftime, they love to see who's gonna perform, so we’re gonna give you the greatest performance you’ve ever seen in hip-hop history," he said.

The five superstars have collectively won 43 Grammys and have 22 No. 1 Billboard albums. The show will be a treat for Los Angeles hip-hop fans as Kendrick Lamar and Snoop Dogg join their mentor Dr. Dre. 

"The opportunity to perform at the Super Bowl halftime show, and to do it in my own backyard, will be one of the biggest thrills of my career," Dre previously said in a statement. "I'm grateful to Jay-Z, Roc Nation, the NFL, and Pepsi as well as Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamar for joining me in what will be an unforgettable cultural moment."
