Jay Z has received a lot of attention for his recent dealings with the National Football League. According to TMZ sources, Jay Z is going to have a “significant ownership interest” in an NFL team in the near future.
Roc Nation Sports will work with the NFL on live music strategies like the Super Bowl and the league’s social activism campaign Inspire Change. Jay originally spits these lyrics on Apesh*t: “I said no to the Super Bowl/ You need me, I don’t need you/ Every night we in the endzone/ Tell the NFL we in stadiums too.”
Jay-Z now says the “NFL has a big platform and were willing to make some changes, that we can do some good.” This is a big move, but Colin Kaepernick still hasn’t played in the NFL since kneeling in 2016 to protest police brutality and racial injustice.
There was a recent podcast that suggests Jay Z talked Jermaine Dupri out of the same deal prior to the latest developments of becoming an owner. Check out the podcast explaining the situation here!
