Snoop Dogg is among one of the hip-hop megastars set to perform at the Super Bowl on Sunday and they have promised to deliver a memorable show that will wow audiences and leave no doubt that rap music deserves a spot in the year's biggest musical showcase.

The halftime show at SoFi Stadium outside Los Angeles will feature area natives Dr. Dre, Kendrick Lamar and Snoop Dogg, plus rapper Eminem and R&B singer Mary J. Blige.

The star-packed lineup makes hip-hop the focus of the halftime extravaganza, expected to attract a U.S. television audience of around 100 million people. Some rap musicians have appeared in the past but shared the stage with rock and pop acts.

"We appreciate the NFL for even entertaining hip-hop because we know a lot of people didn't want hip hop on stage. We're here now and there ain't nothing you can do about it," Snoop Dogg said on Thursday at a discussion in front of media with Blige and Dr. Dre.

The five artists that will perform Sunday have a total of 43 Grammys, and 22 No. 1 Billboard albums.

Dr. Dre said he was thrilled that he will perform in his hometown in a game featuring local team the Los Angeles Rams, who will be battling the Cincinnati Bengals.

"I'm not trying to be egotistical," he said. "But who else could do this show in LA?"

Snoop Dogg's net worth

The 50-year-old Long Beach (California) native shot to fame as a recording artist in the early 90s when he appeared on Dr. Dre's 'The Chronic' album. His own debut album 'Doggystyle' was critically acclaimed and topped the Billboard charts upon release.

Snoop has amassed a total album sales of 23 million albums in the US and over 35 million worldwide during his career as a recording artist.

The rapper's 'larger than life' personality has led to many Hollywood movie cameos with the hip-hop star featuring in the likes of Mac and Devin Go to High School, Half Baked and Bruno.

Latest venture as Snoop acquires Death Row Records

Private equity firm Blackstone, which controls MNRK Music Group, announced on Wednesday (9 February) that Snoop Dogg had acquired Death Row Records, the label which released his debut album nearly three decades ago and launched his career, from the group. The 30-year-old label, owned and operated by rapper Dr. Dre and music executive Marion "Suge" Knight, recorded and released two of Snoop Dogg's albums before his exit in 1998.
