There are reports that Travis Scott spoke with Colin Kaepernick before accepting the invitation to play during this year's 2019 halftime show.
According to Variety, sources claim that Scott and Kaepernick had "at least one phone conversation before the rapper confirmed his Super Bowl appearance."
The source also told them that Scott said that "while the two did not necessarily agree, they emerged from the conversation with mutual respect and understanding, with the rapper taking the stance that everyone makes a statement in their own way."
Scott had revealed that he would be donating his $500,000 fee to the non-profit social-justice organization Dream Corps and would not confirm his performance until it was "locked in."
Many still feel as though Scott should not have accepted. It is even rumored that Jay-Z tried to talk Scott out of performing, but he is intent on going ahead with the show.
Even Rev. Al. Sharpton had words about Scott's decision to perform:
"I think anyone that goes into the halftime show is in effect directly violating those that want to raise the question that the NFL should come to terms with what they have done and continue to do to Colin Kaepernick and those that protest on criminal justice issues,” Sharpton said.
