The 2023 NFL Draft, which took place in Kansas City this past weekend, was certainly remarkable. The draft had it all—surprise picks, pick announcements by current and former players, trades, amazing music, and more. The musical acts that played at this year’s draft included Fall Out Boy, Mötley Crüe, and Thundercat.
The location of the upcoming draft will be Detroit, Michigan, the hometown of the rapper Eminem. Pat McAfee is promoting and toying with the notion of having Slim Shady perform at the draft in his hometown the next year. McAfee proposed it being a crazy idea for Roger Goodell to walk out quoting Eminem’s lyrics before his performance.
“The whole thought of Eminem potentially performing in next year’s draft is what keeps me around. You know what I mean? You only get one shot… Imagine Roger Goodell coming out with ‘Don’t miss your chance to blow, this opportunity comes once in a lifetime. Yooo!” – Pat McAfee
Eminem has performed for the National Football League before. He performed alongside Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent, Kendrick Lamar, Dr. Dre, Mary J. Blige and Anderson .Paak during last year’s Pepsi Super Bowl LVI Halftime show. The Detroit legend performed “Forgot About Dre” and his iconic single “Lose Yourself.”
