Meek Mill Says Eagles Anthem Can Be Both “Dreams & Nightmares” And Lil Uzi Vert’s “Just Wanna Rock”

Tomorrow's highly anticipated Super Bowl is inching closer and closer. Fans are already becoming more excited about what will unfold at the big game. Of course, a hot topic amongst the hip-hop community as of late has been which song the Philadelphia Eagles will select as their anthem. Previously, Meek Mill's "Dreams & Nightmares" was an obvious front-runner. Since Lil Uzi Vert dropped off "Just Wanna Rock," however, the former artist has been feeling some competition.

DJ Drama is the one who sparked a massive debate between the two. He claims that the "Uptown Vibes" hitmaker made an undeniably great track. Still, the Generation Now artist's newer song ultimately comes out on top between the two. Earlier this month, Meek shut down the label head's comments, pointing out the longevity of his fan-favourite title's intro. Ahead of tomorrow's match, the rapper caught up with TMZ in Arizona, sharing more thoughts on the two songs.

While chatting with the outlet, the South Philly native suggested a more inclusive approach for the Eagles. The team should come out to "Just Wanna Rock," showing love to LUV. When they take home the Lombardi Trophy, "Dreams & Nightmares" will blast in celebration, Mill says. The latter song has been playing inside Lincoln Financial Field for over a decade now.

Meek was previously incarcerated when his hometown team last made it to the Super Bowl in 2017. Due to this, he missed out on some major moments and is obviously looking forward to seeing a potential win play out in person this year.

While many attendees of tomorrow's big game will be focused on the football (and which hip-hop anthem the Eagles show favour to), others are tuning in simply to watch Rihanna's historic return to the stage. The new mother has been hard at work for the past few months, preparing what sounds like a jam-packed performance for excited fans both in the stadium and at home.

Earlier this week, the "Umbrella" songstress sat down with Apple Music to dish about her process in getting ready for the big event. Additionally, it was revealed that Rih surprisingly won't be getting paid for her upcoming work at the Super Bowl.
