The Philadelphia Eagles are returning to the Super Bowl for the first time in 13 years. The team has been in high support of their hometown rapper Meek Mill, especially since he was sentenced in to two to four years in prison for violating his parole in November.

In the meantime, his song “Dreams and Nightmares” has become the unofficial Eagles anthem. After a win against the Minnesota Vikings last Sunday (Jan. 21) in the NFC Championship Game, the Eagles celebrated in the locker room by blasting "Dreams." 

“It really lifted my spirit to hear the team rally around my songs and that’s why I make music – to inspire others and bring people together," the rapper said in a statement. "The Eagles have also motivated me with the way they’ve overcome tough situations and injuries to succeed this year.”

The Philly native said he is "confident my guys are going to beat the Patriots and bring the Super Bowl trophy to Philly." The Eagles go head to head Super Bowl defending champs the New England Patriots on Sunday, Feb. 4 at the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minnesota. 

Although Meek Mill won’t be able to attend or see the Super Bowl, his presence will still be in place musically. Check out the Eagles celebrating to “Dreams And Nightmares" below.
