There’s been some interesting reactions to the news of Jay-Z and Roc Nation’s recent partnership with the NFL.
Colin Kaepernick’s lawyer disputes reports that Hov reached out to him prior to the deal being announced. Later, a Roc Nation rep clarified that Jay apparently talked to Kaep in the past 48 hours, but more as a heads up, not necessarily seeking approval on a deal that was basically already done.
- This is just getting messy.
- There’s a lot of blowback against Jay for what some think is a tone-deaf move.
- Hov has a track record of fighting for social justice. Why not give him the benefit of the doubt?
- Just wait till people see how this move is more about boosting the NFL’s ratings and social media engagement and how nothing really changes otherwise.
