Jay-Z Inks Deal With NFL After SUPPORTING Kaepernick’s Protest?

2 min read

JAY-Z and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell held a press conference on Wednesday to announce that the 49-year-old rapper’s entertainment company, Roc Nation, is partnering with the NFL to be the league’s official Live Music Entertainment Strategists, as well as to support the NFL’s social justice endeavors. The big move means, in part, that Roc Nation will advise the NFL on the selection of artists playing their various high-profile performances, including the Super Bowl halftime show.

ET was at the press conference held at the Roc Nation boardroom in New York City, where JAY-Z addressed turning down the Super Bowl halftime this year. He said he didn’t like the selection process the NFL had, which ultimately led to Maroon 5 headlining the show with appearances by Travis Scott and Outkast’s Big Boi. He said this year’s Super Bowl was a big reason for his decision to partner with the NFL, even though more attention is being paid to his ties with Colin Kaepernick.
