The NFL has announced a partnership with Jay-Z and his Roc Nation for a multi tiered relationship. Not only with Hov be the “live music entertainment strategist” helping to consult on the Super Bowl halftime show but Jay will help the league’s key social initiatives. Jay-Z told The New York Times, “The NFL has a great platform, and it has to be all-inclusive.” He added, “They were willing to do some things, to make some changes, that we can do some good.” NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, explained that the partnership with JAY-Z will serve as a checks-and-balance system for the league. “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.”
Could this mean a resolution to Colin Kaepernick’s NFL lock out for his protest of the National Anthem? We shall see but of course the outspoken Fox correspondent Tomi Lahren offered her opinion on this new partnership.
Jay-Z will be consulting with the NFL for the Super Bowl halftime show and other performances because apparently the league doesn’t hate America and law enforcement officers at a level satisfactory enough for the former drug dealer.
