Eagles fans pile on “corny as hell” Meek Mill after rapper’s awkward Tupac-themed freestyle
The Philadelphia Eagles are headed to Super Bowl LVII and one of their biggest fans had his own way of celebrating. Rapper Meek Mill posted a freestyle on his Instagram stories, using Tupacs' song “Hit Em UP," after the Eagles defeated the San Francisco 49ers 31-7 on Sunday. Meek Mill used his own lyrics to celebrate his Eagles and asked fans to create their own versions of the song as well.
Meek Mill's own song, "Dreams and Nightmares," was played by Eagles fans in Philadelphia while celebrating in the streets after the big win. Mill told fans that he was so excited that he wanted to host a free party for fans and asked club owners to open a spot for him to do so:
“I will host a free party tonight and perform intro. Somebody open a club.”
The fresstyle, though, left NFL and music fans a bit upset with his rendition of Tupac's song, with many saying that they believed it was a bit 'corny' and others saying that they are sure that Tupac wouldn't have liked what the rapper did with his song.
Other fans said that Meek Mill could have just congratulated the team on the win and the trip to the Super Bowl instead of posting to his Instagram stories and making this freestyle.
How many Super Bowls have the Philadelphia Eagles been to?
The Philadelphia Eagles will face the Kansas City Chiefs in the upcoming Super Bowl in just two weeks. The team was founded in 1933 and has had ups and downs throughout the years. Philadelphia has won the NFC East a total of 12 times since the merger.
They have only won the NFC title four times, taking a trip to the Super Bowl in 1980, 2004, 2017 and now in the 2022 NFL season. The win against the New England Patriots in 2017 was the only Lombardi Trophy that Philadelphia has won. The win in Super Bowl LII against the Patriots is still well-known for quarterback Nick Foles' performance that garnered him a Super Bowl MVP as well as the "Philly Special" play that led the team to victory.
Now Philadelphia will only make their fifth Super Bowl appearance and face a familiar face, Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid. He spent 14 seasons in Philadelphia, making nine playoffs but only one appearance in the big game.
