According to TMZ, source close to Jay-Z say he will have a "significant ownership interest" in a team soon. A lot of great social justice work.
"We will never turn our backs on @kaepernick7 because your idols chose 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", she wrote in the post, which has received more than 32,000 views at the time of this writing.
She said it was "disgusting and disappointing" that Jay-Z "let them [the NFL] use him". Variety notes that details about which team he's eyeing or exactly when the deal will be finalized have not yet been revealed, but news of the billionaire hip-hop star and entrepreneur becoming part owner has fueled the ongoing heated debate on Twitter about Jay's "betrayal" to the cultural with his National Football League partnership.
Jay-Z, real name Shawn Carter, became famous thanks to his rap career, which he parlayed into a career as a successful businessman. Jay asked rhetorically. "In that case, this is a success". This is the next phase. There [are] two parts of protesting.
"To be clear, for the room, I'm not minimizing that part of it cause that has to happen". What do we do next?' We get stuck on Colin not having a job, you know what I'm saying?
"For me it's like action, [an] actionable item, what are we gonna do with it?" Roc Nation will serve as the NFL's "live music entertainment strategist", consulting on entertainment, including the Super Bowl halftime show, and contributing to the league's social-justice program, Inspire Change.
The "99 Problems" rapper was also queried about whether he would kneel or stand before the game kicked off and he noted that he believes we're far "beyond that point".
