Dr. Dre Has Been ‘Manifesting’ Rams To Super Bowl LVI All Season

On Sunday, the Los Angeles Rams will play in their home SoFi Stadium against the Cincinnati Bengals in Super Bowl LVI.

It marks the second straight season a team will play the Super Bowl in their home stadium, joining the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, after it was never previously done in NFL history.

With the Super Bowl in L.A., it is sure to attract some of the biggest celebrities to the game and the halftime show serves as a big indication of that as Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamar will all be performing.

Dr. Dre, who was born in Compton, Calif. and grew up while the Rams were first in L.A. the first time, said he was manifesting the Rams to the Super Bowl all year so he could perform with them playing in the game, he said during the Super Bowl media week via Gilbert Manzano:

“Not trying to be egotistical or anything like that, but who else could do this show here in L.A.? Who else could perform the halftime show other than these amazing artists that we put together for this thing? And not only that, I’ve been manifesting the Rams since the beginning of the season. I’m just thinking about it every day. I’m meditating on it and I’m like ‘ok, it would be perfect if we are at the Super Bowl performing at halftime and the Rams are in the game as well.'”

The Rams have been among the favorites to reach the Super Bowl all season with a stacked roster and an all-in mentality from everyone in the organization that started with acquiring Matthew Stafford after last season.

Despite being among the favorites all year, they continued to add talent throughout the season, acquiring star wide receiver Odell Beckaham Jr., future Hall of Famer Von Miller and former All-Pro safety Eric Weddle for their championship push.

Now, they need one more win to join the Buccaneers as the only teams to win a Super Bowl in their home stadium and they need no extra motivation after losing their previous appearance to the New England Patriots.

McVay grateful Super Bowl is at SoFi

Rams head coach Sean McVay couldn’t be happier the team is staying in their home city but won’t let it distract them from their goal of winning one more game.

Although the Super Bowl is being played at SoFi Stadium, the Bengals are technically the home team because of the alternating designation between AFC and NFC champions each year.

That means Cincinnati got to choose its uniform and L.A. will call the coin toss. The Bengals opted to go with their black jersey and white pants pairing, while the Rams picked their modern white throwbacks.
