Super Bowl 50 is officially upon us. This is officially [and unofficially] the biggest holiday of the year in America. Hot wings, nachos and beer are plentiful. This Super Bowl is special for a few reasons. This event has been held 50 times and we are watching a veteran quarterback, Peyton Manning, in the twilight of his career comeback from a neck injury to play in the big game and then we have Cam Newton. Cam can be a polarizing figure. Ever since he was drafted in 2011 from Auburn, he has represented the evolution of the NFL. Cam is a quarterback who is 6’5 with lightning speed and super strength in the new style of athlete.

Cam is a reflection of his generation and we took a moment to point out 5 reasons Cam is just like your favorite rapper. Take a look after the jump.
