Super Bowl is a huge event for football fans but it is also a Big Game for most of the celebrities. The Big Game means big paydays for celebs and this time especially for rappers like Nicki Minaj, DaBaby, Lil Baby, and Yo Gotti are cashing in on appearances at Super Bowl weekend parties in Miami.
The biggest cashing day for rappers this weekend is Studio 23 in Miami Beach. According to TMZ, the highest amount of money deal is cracked by Nicki Minaj of $125k to host Monday night finale and Gucci Mane’s cashing $100k to host Saturday night’s bash.
As we previously reported, Nicki Minaj is coming back as Barbz were expecting her return after the announcement of retirement back in September 2019. The ‘coming back’ announcement was also made by Nicki Minaj herself on an Instagram story but not confirmed and yesterday she made a new collaboration with Meghan Trainor “Nice To Meet Ya.”
Jeezy is said to have hosted a party on Friday (January 31) evening, a gig that brought in $40K. Yo Gotti was over at the Mirage Miami and earned $50K. Lil Baby and DaBaby are pulling in racks together while co-hosting Saturday’s Trap Bowl. TMZ states that Lil Baby will make $70K while the North Carolina rapper will earn $80K.
As for the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs players putting their bodies on the line Sunday … the victors earn $124,000 each and the losers go home with $62,000.

No Rome releases new song ‘Hurry Home’ with Beabadoobee and Jay Som
The musician first announced the track last week (May 22), confirming it would be released on Friday (May 29).
“I wanna see you but it’s gonna hurt / We got some problems but we’ll make it work,” No Rome sings on the chorus. Stream ‘Hurry Home’ below:
The Filipino musician’s last single ‘Trust3000’ was released in November 2019 and featured up-and-coming singer Dijon. The track is due to feature on No Rome’s next EP, which is expected to be released this year.
Beabadoobee picked up the NME Radar Award at the NME Awards 2020 in February. The London musician was presented with the award by The 1975’s Matty Healy before she and her band performed a version of ‘She Plays Bass’.
Meanwhile, Jay Som recently took part in the first release for Soccer Mommy’s new ‘Soccer Mommy & Friends Singles Series’, which will raise money for Oxfam’s coronavirus relief fund. Som covered Soccer Mommy’s ‘Lucy’ with the Nashville artist returning the favour with a cover of ‘I Think You’re Alright’.
Beabadoobee is set to appear on a future release in the series, while MGMT’s Andrew VanWyngarden, Beach Bunny and more will also take part.

The singer-songwriter shared another new song called ‘I Just Wanna Go Home’, featuring guest vocals from Andrea.
Listen to both of the new songs below:
Whether ‘Hey Girl’ or ‘I Just Wanna Go Home’ will land on a full-length project is not yet known. Boy Pablo’s last project was 2018’s ‘Soy Pablo’ EP.
The Norwegian internet sensation joined a lineup that included the likes of Aurora, Enslaved and Datarock.
Armed with an acoustic guitar and donning socks and sandals, Pablo offered up a cover of ‘Piledriver Waltz’, taken from Arctic Monkeys’ 2011 album ‘Suck It And See’, which he performed in front of a green screen that displayed a family deer wandering in the snow.
Gang Of Four to release guitarist Andy Gill’s final recordings
Gill, who was a founding member of the legendary post-punk band, died in February following a short respiratory illness.
The news was announced in a statement posted on the band’s official Twitter account. “This is so hard for us to write, but our great friend and Supreme Leader has died today,” the statement began.
It continued: “Andy’s final tour in November was the only way he was ever really going to bow out; with a Stratocaster around his neck, screaming with feedback and deafening the front row.”
Today (May 28), the remaining members of the band, along with Gill’s widow, the author and Women’s Equality party co-founder Catherine Mayer, have announced a new EP that features the guitarist’s final recordings.
Titled the ‘Anti Hero EP’, all proceeds from it will benefit Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS foundation trust, to “recognise, celebrate and support” those who cared for Gill during his hospitalisation.
Speaking to The Guardian, Mayer said that her late husband was “working on this music and overseeing mixes from his hospital bed until literally the last day when they put him under.”
Mayer said that she and the rest of the band named the EP to recognise Gill’s “very healthy scepticism of the lauding of so-called great men.”
“So many – mainly men I’m afraid – seem susceptible to the idea that if you behave and dress a bit badly and break the rules, it makes you a genius,” she explained. “Andy talked about how it was becoming impossible for such populist figures to not intrude into his lyrics. He’d look at Trump’s tweets and go, ‘There’s a Gang of Four lyric right there.’”
The ‘Anti Hero EP’, which will feature art work by Shepard Fairey, the man who created Barack Obama’s Hope poster, will be released on July 17.
