Roc Nation and the National Football a*sociation announced a multi-tiered partnership on Tuesday afternoon. As part of the deal,*Jay-Z’s*entertainment company will become the*NFL’s “live music entertainment strategist,” reports*ESPNand*The New York Times. The partnership will see Roc Nation a*sist in the league’s key events like the Super Bowl halftime show, while also creating podcasts, visual albums, and organizing separate events and concerts. “The N.F.L. has a great big platform, and it has to be all-inclusive,” Jay-Z told*The Times. “They were willing to do some things, to make some changes, that we can do some good.” For years, Jay-Z was critical of the NFL’s handling of peaceful protests from various players like Colin Kaepernick, who decided to kneel during the national anthem to bring attention to various forms of police brutality. In 2018, Jay called Kaepernick an “iconic figure” on*CNN’s*The Van Jones Show*and showed his support for the quarterback onstage and during performances on*Saturday Night Live. More from Rolling Stone I'm Tired of Writing About Babies Rick Ross is the Don We Know and Love on 'Port of Miami 2' 'I Totally Went Off': How Randy Newman Ended Up on a Chance the Rapper Song The league aligning itself with one of its most outspoken proponents is likely a strategic move after years of bad publicity, and reports all suggest a focus on “social change” will arise from the partnership. According to ESPN, the new deal has the potential to boost the*NFL’s Inspire Change initiative, which focuses on education and economic advancement, police and community relations, and criminal justice reform. “We don’t want people to come in and necessarily agree with us; we want people to come in and tell us what we can do better,” NFL commissioner, Roger Goodell told ESPN. “I think that’s a core element of our relationship between the two organizations, and with Jay and I personally.” See where your favorite artists and songs rank on the*Rolling Stone Charts.

Yes, I said in the other thread the NFL is trying to save face by linking up with Jigga. Just like when Malcom Jenkins was kneeling with Kaep and the NFL slid him some money to stand up and protest for their side.


Jay can preach all this pro black shxt but at the end of the day he’s a business man and money talks. The NFL is paying ppl to “shut up and get hurt” then we replace you with a rookie on a cheaper salary.

He actually could give Kaep a lead position for the irony.

He's just as hypocritical as the people that claim to take issue with the things the NFL has done, but still continue to watch games and pay for NFL merchandise.

Y'all gonna stop believing these entertainers one day. Jay is tied for GOAT to me but he's a piece of sh*t like the other 99% of the population. For the most part people are just out to benefit themselves...most people don't actually stand for anything, even if they do preach that sh*t

Jay is just a higher up sprocket puppet of the entertainment machine. Nas said he would never do an alcohol/liquor deal and did the deal with Henny.
Priorities change, I'm sure the child support payments to Kelis may have impacted that decision. I could care less about another man's pockets or biz ventures to be honest, just a fan of the culture. This is good leverage for Jay/Rocnation in the future. Too many people put celebs/celebrity rappers on a pedestal when they're just regular people with extraordinary work ethic and a fanbase.
