People tried to decipher the reason behind his actions. Former Quarterback of San Francisco 49ers Colin Kaepernick did the same thing in 2016. He too knelt as a protest to racial injustice during the American National Anthem. His career ended in 2016 itself. It is a tribute to Kaepernick’s gesture.
In addition to that rapper mentioned NFL that he will be doing this gesture, but it wasn’t encouraged. But Eminem took a knee anyway after his performance. That is the last song at LA Ram’s SoFi Stadium. However, Spokesman of the NFL Brian McCarthy said that the league has no problem with Eminem kneeling and also said that they have seen him do this in his rehearsal.
The Power-packed Concert
The concert is power-packed and stunning with all the legends appearing on the same stage. The song ‘The Next Episode’ by Snoop Dogg, ‘California Love’ by Dr. Dre, ‘In Da Club’ by 50 Cent, ‘Family Affair’ and ‘No More Drama by Mary J. Blige, ‘M.a.a.D City’ and ‘Alright’ by Kendrick Lamar, ‘Lose Yourself’ by Eminem, The final touch of magic ‘Still D.R.E.’ by Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg.
THAT. WAS. INCREDIBLE.
