JAY-Z Reportedly Set To Become an NFL Team Co-Owner Soon

It drew the attention of many this week then it was announced by JAY-Z that he and Roc Nation have decided to partner with the NFL for music and a social justice campaign. According to TMZ Sports, the Hip Hop billionaire is poised to become a co-owner of an unspecified NFL team “in the near future.”

It was reported by the NY Times that Hov plans to help enhance the league’s Inspire Change initiative, a campaign created after multiple players followed Kaepernick’s lead. Despite Jay’s intentions, Kaepernick’s girlfriend and radio personality Nessa expressed her disappointment and stated that Kaepernick was not consulted ahead of the deal or partnership.

We will never turn our backs on @kaepernick7 because your idols decided to work with the same organization that is actively keeping Colin unemployed all because he peacefully protested against social injustice in black and brown communities, specifically police brutality. So really, how can Jay-Z and the NFL utter social justice in their partnership while keeping Colin unemployed because of his social justice work? • • It’s typical for the NFL to buy different PR looks to cover up their dirt-that’s nothing new. But what is disgusting and disappointing is Jay-Z let them use him. Whether Jay-Z knew it or not (I don’t doubt his intelligence-so I would think he knew) he helped the NFL bury who he said is an iconic figure, Colin Kaepernick. • • Don’t tell me there’s a “master plan and wait for it” because the ONLY reason anything would ever change is because THE PEOPLE are loud and clear and won’t let the league buy their loyalty with their disingenuous moves. The people are letting the league and anyone who works with them know that they aren’t buying the bs. • • Thank you all so much for showing Colin so much support and love. I know for myself, I can’t thank y’all enough for loving my family. • #imwithkap #nokapnonfl ❤️❤️❤️ • • #RP: @kaepernick7: ‪You never turned your back on me or the people, even when the nfl tried to silence your voice & the movement. You’ve never flinched or wavered. I love you Brother! Let’s get it! @E_Reid35‬ ‪ And to the people – I see you, I hear you and I love you! Thank you for having my back!!!✊🏾‬ • • 🎥: @relrelrelrel @djtonedef
