Celebrity Raiders fan and rapper, Lil Jon, performed at Arrowhead Stadium during the Divisional Round victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars. Unfortunately for Raider Nation, he decided to join the winning team, decking himself out in Chiefs gear from head to toe.
Upon seeing this, Raiders stars Davante Adams and Maxx Crosby weren’t pleased. Adams posted a photo of Lil Jon at Allegiant Stadium dressed in black and silver on his Instagram story with the caption: “Big Raider guy☠️.” The next photo was Lil Jon in his newfound KC swag, with the caption: “Hol up…🤔🤔🤔”
Yeah he’s cut.💀💀💀 https://t.co/k375XGTCeD

Lil Jon Responds After Chiefs-Raiders Controversy
Lil Jon did write back to Crosby, questioning: “U DO KNO I WAS PAID TO PERFORM THERE RIGHT 🤔?” Unfortunately, the damage was already done.
Raider Nation spammed the comments, renouncing the rapper and declaring that he is no longer allowed to support Las Vegas.
“That makes it cool with you but not with us,” one popular response replied. Another said: “Yeah but I bet for damn sure we would never see @icecube dripping in Chiefs colors like that just for some $$$.”
“Bro, woulda been the biggest flex to come out performing in chiefs gear, then before the end just rip it off and show your actual fandom. Cmon now, flex on em!” A third Raiders fan pleaded. Finally, one used Lil Jon’s own lyrics against him, stating: “Snap ya fingers, do ya step ✌️.”
Chiefs Still Living in the Heads of Raider Nation
Kansas City has not lost to the Raiders since the 2020 campaign, where they split the season series one-one. That equates to five straight victories for the Chiefs and 10 wins in their last 11 head-to-head matchups (15 of last 17 beyond that).
