Chiefs announce Lil Jon as halftime performer for AFC divisional round

The Kansas City Chiefs have announced their halftime performer for the AFC divisional round game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Atlanta-based rapper Lil Jon is set to get GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium crunk at halftime. He is perhaps best known for his 2013 6-time multi-platinum hit “Turn Down For What” produced by DJ Snake.

The team shared a teaser on Twitter on Wednesday afternoon announcing the performance. Check it out:

This is actually the second career playoff game that Kansas City has participated in that Lil Jon has performed at. He was the halftime performer back in the 2015-16 playoffs, performing at NRG Stadium in Houston during the team’s 30-0 win over the Texans. That game marked the Chiefs’ first playoff win since 1993. Perhaps that makes Lil Jon’s presence at this game against an AFC South opponent a good omen.

Kickoff for the Chiefs-Jaguars divisional round game is set for 3:30 p.m. CT on Saturday, Jan. 21. Check back on Chiefs Wire later this week for more information on the National Anthem performer, a pre-game flyover and the team’s playoff Drum Honoree.
