Jay Z he talked with Colin Kaepernick before signing a new partnership with the NFL, but the rap mogul said his deal with the league went beyond protest by Kepernick kneeling.
Some thought Jay – by logging in to help the NFL in entertainment and social justice – undercut the hangover case … but both Jay and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell spoke on Wednesday at Roc Nation offices in New York.
Two men sat side by side and discussed cooperation with about 30 invited media members. Referring to Kaepernick and other NFL players kneeling during the hymn, Jay said … "I think we forget that the whole Colin case was about paying attention to social injustice, so in that case it's a success – that's the next thing. two parts of the protest: protest, and then there is the company or person saying "I hear you, what's next?" "
As you know, Kaepernick still no work in the NFL and Goodell was asked if he was shot. He said that "any team" can sign it. Both Jay-Z and Goodell said they spoke to Kaepernick before Tuesday announcement that they would join forces. However, none of them would reveal what Kaepernick said.
As far as Kapernick would be involved in partnership – where the NFL will support Jay-Z's social justice case and Jay will produce the Super Bowl Halftime Show, "Jay said," You have to ask him, I'm not his boss.
Goodell and Jay looked like old friends … shaking hands and laughing at the event.
We contacted Kaepernick representatives to see if he had any reaction to Jay's meeting with the NFL Commissioner.
By the way, NFL and Roc Nation allowed only one photographer at this event. The NFL has made the only video it plans to release on Wednesday.
