Travis Scott, Jay Z

Jay-Z is reportedly using his significant influence to pressure rapper Travis Scott out of performing during Super Bowl LIII's halftime show in Atlanta on Feb. 3.

TMZ confirmed Thursday that the "Antidote" rapper was among the small lineup of celebrities added to the bill alongside American rock band Maroon 5.

Others rumored to perform include rappers Cardi B and Big Boi.

So So Def Records founder Jermaine Dupri was named to head the committee that oversees the week of music events leading up to the Super Bowl. Rap group Migos also agreed to perform at an event during Super Bowl week in Atlanta.

The backlash was immediate as angry social media users vented their disappointment at Scott.

Variety magazine reports that Jay-Z is trying to talk Scott out of performing, but an anonymous source told the Associated Press that Scott was "close to signing" to perform at Super Bowl LIII.

The source confirmed that Scott will headline Pepsi's Pre-Super Bowl concert on Feb. 1 in Atlanta, in addition to performing at the Super Bowl at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

Two sources told Variety that Jay-Z is opposed to Scott performing during sports' biggest night because he is highly critical of NFL owners who refuse to sign former quarterback Colin Kaepernick after he took a knee during the National Anthem prior to NFL games in 2016.

Maroon 5 still have not been officially confirmed as the game's halftime headliners, although multiple sources told Variety back in September that they would be the headlining act.

    Its time for Travis Jenner to shine.

    You think mama Kris is going to fumble this ball absolutely not.

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    Damn!!!!! They look rough. Too rich to look like this.

  • Well$$Well$$?

    I like the song Sicko Mode. He's with a member of the Koven. Those gypsies value money over everything. He's going to perform...

  • ohdearme

    One man can't count another man's coins, PERIOD! JayZ has done what he wanted when he wanted, Travis is allowed to do the same. Also not everyone HAS to think that Colin went about his protest the right way, we're different and that's that.

  • Tinytoon

    When Kylie and Kris say jump, he just start jumping. Kylie got his nose wide open, he know the Koven wears the pants in their relationship .

  • ohdearme

    OR he doesn't give a sh!t about the protest and has always wanted to perform at the SB. People give that family too much credit.

  • cherrypie

    Travis is doing this because Kris Jenner said so lol

  • Yoni7

    Jay, lee dat boy 'lone, mane. Let him do him. You can't reckon with a Kardashian man. Look at ya boy Ye.

  • Kim’s Original Face

    Hey auntie can we get a post of the referee that made the young black wrestler cut his dreads off before a match

    That video made my blood boil

  • Yoni7

    He did WHET????????

  • ohdearme

    Travis isn't a bad looking kid when he smiles. Jay, no comment.

  • Joy King

    I doubt he has more influence over Travis than Kris and Kylie but prove me wrong Jay.

  • Trace da Ace

    ** LONG EXASPERATED SIGH**......at this point...does it matter? He gonna do what he wants to do...and who is Jay-Z?? I mean do everybody have clear shyt through him first??? Kris runs that family...and dem boys who is screwing her chirruns...so SHE ultimately makes the decisions....

  • Kim’s Original Face
  • Yoni7

    I was wondering if the parents were there initially rooting him on in the stands. But I won't turn THIS on them, as every parent can't be at EVERY single function. However, (without viewing the video)......bay-bee!!!!

  • jeniefrumdabloc™
  • BeUtFullSoul

    Wait...Wait...WAIT ONE DANG MINUTE!!!!!. say WHET NAH???!!!.... @sandrarose, yes! Aun-TEA, Can we get a Post about THIS IMPORTANT STORY PLEASE!

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Idk how to feel about all of this.

    None of the players are “boycotting.” I know viewership is down, but it doesn’t seem like this is being taken seriously by the people in the league or Americans as a whole.

    However, I understand that a little of something is better than nothing at all ?????

  • Mielle Downey

    Amen to that.

  • Carmen Harrison Johnson

    TRAVIS GO AHEAD AND PERFORM HONEY CAUSE YOU MAY NEVERRRRR EVERRRRRR HAVE THIS CHANCE AGAIN SON!!!!! AND WHO IS 'JAY CAMEL JOE Z' TO TELL ANYONE WHAT TO DEWWWWW!!!!! HAPPY HOLIDAYS ROSES

  • FukkFolks2018

    Im tired of this. First of all...Kap is OKAY. He doesnt need the NFL in order to "be employed". He is one of the RARE ones and actually played all 4 years, in college, at Reno and graduated with honors, with I wanna say a communications degree. And has his Nike stuff to fall back on. He can go and find a job tomorrow if he wanted to. Matter fact, if you care so damn much Jigga...why dont YOU give him a job? Why in the hell should he work in the racist ass NFL anyways if they dont want him?

    And leave Travis alone. My goodness. We all know who he answers to. And if I were you I would tread lightly. Kris most likely for SURE has just as many if not MORE goons than even YOU sir. Most of the time I say folks will fukk around and turn up missing fooling with YOU. But this ONE time, Imma say stay out of their dynasty.

  • iWasteTime

    No he's not ... lololol
    If it was any other artist, maybe ...

  • MsSapphire9800

    Why do we give the Kardashians and Jenners so much credit...like Travis didn't have a career and fan base prior...Maybe his camp is telling him to go for it...as for Jay Z...whatever...now he is the black conscious leader of hip hop...bye.

  • Mielle Downey

    Leave Travis alone . JAYZ is becoming the rap Al Sharpton. Why must black people be like sheep? With all the black players in the NFL the entertainment should represent the demo graphics. I am sick of diet woke millionaires protesting for thier pockets.Jayz white masters is telling home to do this but when Trump says something it a problem. Make up your mind black people.

  • iWasteTime

    I just saw this on IG
    I have so many questions.
    How did he get that far with his dreads for it to be a problem now!?!?

  • FukkFolks2018

    I think after the end of last season people built a bridge and moved on. Either you still watching the NFL or you arent. But it for sure is not a big loud deal like it was.

  • Kim’s Original Face

    I would have flipped out! And the coach just sat there whew LAWD

  • FukkFolks2018

    This. And see I dont know much about wrestling. That is the ONE sport I dont even remotely watch. I even know more about golf than wrestling. But that was MY question as well

  • FukkFolks2018

    Travis was a blip on the rap radar pre Kylie. Stormi sold AstroWorld. Without them...the masses wouldnt have cared.

  • Yoni7

    Now I MUST ask.......Hues of parties involved (excluding the wrestler)?

  • Harley

    Why must black people be like sheep and support organizations that blatantly disrespect us?? Jay-Z and Beyonce always support the black community even in their performances even showcases black power in their performances. It’s good an older artist is leading by example. That’s like being upset Mohammed Ali took a stand for our people. Why is it so hard for black people to unite against the system and racism?

  • Harley

    True he was an artist but he wasn’t the name he is now

  • Ang

    Jay isn’t in a position to judge anyone. He did what he wanted to in order to protect his business interests when everyone wanted him to stop dealing with Barneys over their discriminaton.

  • Mielle Downey

    Whatever. JAYZ is looking out for his pockets like always. The NFL HAS MORE BLACK MENin thier league than golf why are we not protesting golf? Chicago black men are killing each other more than the police but because Colin got upset with the league and started a protest against cops killing black men the true fact must be ignored?

  • Gloria

    I just saw this on TMZ. Crazy! People are trine justify it by commenting "iTs tHE rULEs of wResTLing."

    I'm not buying it. White boys who have long hair and wrestle just put it in a ponytail or cover it up, just as the young black boy did. and his hair isn't even shoulder length for it to be a real issue.

    Oh, plus the ref has a racist history.....

    Yeah, I'm heated!

  • Mielle Downey

    Wake up black people

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Pretty much!!!! ... just said Fugg da NFL haven't watched it since .... no big deal ... either you watch or you don't

  • Harley

    Thank you Jay for trying to uphold the boycott! NFL ratings are down and many people do not support the organization. They have lost endorsements and the players that speak up are being scrutinized and drug tested more often than the others. Does this not bother folks?? How can you let this go as a community? It’s sad because less than 80 years ago our ancestors had sit ins, were arrested, and marched constantly for our rights and all we have to do is just not support an organization and can’t?? You have Floyd Mayweathers and not Mohammad Ali’s!! It’s sad so many people are on with his decision saying this is a once in a lifetime opportunity!! Y’all werent saying that when Chrisette Michelle went shucking and jiving for Trump. We as a people have to do better! If we stay divided we will continue to fall!

  • Harley

    And I recall he did right???

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Speaking of...

    Y'all see the story about the ref (Alan Maloney) that made the black kid cut his locs or he would have to forfeit the (high school) wrestling tournament. Child cut his locs and won, but I want to know where his parents were. Where we're the school officials?? ?????

  • Yoni7

    Scroll down a lil hun. It's already being discussed.

  • CookieMobster

    Performing at the Super Bowl is a major career milestone. That could be huge exposure for Travis Scott. Let that man live geez.

  • Harley

    Um what do black men being murdered by other black men have to do with police who are in power “GETTING AWAY” with murder?? All demographics including whites murder one another!! Stop with that fake narrative! Just because someone stands for one cause doesn’t mean they arent concerned with another and it doesn’t make one less valid.

    Golf? Really? I have seen any golfers kneel and be out a job nor required to take drug test. The NFL showed who they are and we must listen. All this deflecting your doing is ridiculous

  • TriniHarlem
  • Ang

    Did what? What are you asking? Jay didn’t pull his deal with Barneys. He continued his partnership with them to sell that overpriced stuff.

  • SpiceGirl

    How many coins are they giving him for doing it? Kris like....yup
    As for Jay....if you don't stand for SOMETHING...you will fall for ANYTHING....Yup that's right jay....tell the youngin.....(that's how im seeing this)

  • Yoni7

    end of last season people built a bridge and moved on.
    _________

    NFL stands for Not For Long. LOL

  • Fire & Ice

    All facts! We have more Mayweather's than Ali's.

  • Harley

    I guess the same could be said for Chrisette Michelle shucking for Trump!! Who cares the career milestone what happen to standing up for oneself and having not being a bufffoon

  • Harley

    It’s a shame how black people are so docile and let our black dollars circulate in other communities and how we support known racist organizations

  • Joy King

    Sandra, I would like to put in a Holiday request. Being a proud Cardi B fan, will you please do a Rose Review on her new video Money. It drops at 2pm today. I always enjoy your input. Thanks!!

  • Harley

    Many are still boycotting and ratings are down

  • jeniefrumdabloc™
  • Yoni7

    Hold the door, I'm right behind you. So we bar hoppin' or nah? I'm only going for the food.

  • Harley

    It is a big deal! Black people need to make it a big deal and stop letting shit go that’s the problem! Imagine if Martin Luther and Malcolm X were like no big deal

  • Gloria

    Not all exposure is worth it. You don't have to be a damn coon or sell out to get money.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    No.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™
  • Harley

    Barneys responded to the lawsuits by hiring the civil-rights consultant and U.S. Commission on Civil Rights member Michael Yaki to review the store’s practices and reach out to black community leaders. It has also increased the amount of the collection’s sales pledged to Jay Z’s scholarship foundation from twenty-five to a hundred per cent. And it is one of several stores that have agreed to post a “Customers’ Bill of Rights” in which they pledge to prevent racial profiling.

    AND WHAT HAS THE NFL DONE TO RECRIFY THE SITUATION, ASIDE FROM HAVING THE RACIST PRESIDENT SIDE WITH THEM?

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Ugh, I'll try to watch the video all the way through. You're a faithful reader, so I'll do it for you.

  • Harley

    Thanks you! I can’t stand people saying how great this opportunity is yet we’re condeming Chrisette Michelle for shucking for Dump

  • Yoni7

    I'm sure. Haven't watched in a few years. Probably before the boycott.

  • Harley

    Ugh please no! There are ACTUAL talented artist and not birds

  • Harley

    ????????????

  • OvertheMississippi

    My son wrestles. Refs pretty much are in total control on match day. They even make them shave their peach fuzz on their faces. The coach or previous refs might not have cared, but that one ref knew it his call to make and took advantage of it. Boys on my son’s team simply wears the cap, but often times, it isn’t secure. If wrestling is the boy’s passion, he will cut it and live to wrestle another day. If the hair is more important, not much of a wrestler anyway. ?????

  • Harley

    Travis looks like a weasel ?

  • Harley

    I stopped for the boycott! And I loved it but now I watch soccer and rugby

  • Fire & Ice

    Omg just like that huh ?

    Thank you SO much!!!!!!

  • Stopfoolingurself

    Ok, don't stop there. Now, tell us what the NFL agreed to.

  • WHYJESUSWHY

    Jay is a fraud! He did Brooklyn dirty and no one wants to call him out on it but trust me we know!

  • Yoni7

    Do they have brussel sprouts and fried cauliflower where we're going?

  • Harley

    Well really? Way to deflect!! H

  • Ang

    I followed the story. Everything they did was in response to pressure put on them by Al Sharpton and many black protesters to fix a problem they never should have allowed in the first place. They didn’t have a choice but to take action with all the bad PR. But, that has nothing to do with what I said. Jay did not initially stand with the black people who were against Barneys. No matter anyone spins it, the reason is because of his business interest. Nothing that Barneys gave to black charities from that deal is something Jay couldn’t have done himself. Jay brags about wealth. He didn’t need that. Jay does good deeds some times but make no mistake about it, he puts business above all. Don’t forget he put out a diss record about Harry Belafonte calling that man a “boy” because he said Jay could do more charity. Jays response is that his presence is charity. That’s arrogance at its finest. So I’m not jumping on the bandwagon of Jay critizing someone’s biz moves who isn’t in his same position.

  • Harley

    What has the NFL done?? Aside from your opinion on Jay facts remain what has the NFL done

  • what?why

    Jay was at a football game a few weeks ago - it is all business. Travis is no fool, Good for him!

  • Ang

    What does that have to do with my comment lol?

  • Calikush

    Nothing.......lmao!

  • what?why

    Tell that to the Carters who were recently performing at TWO third world countries. People still poor there after they leave ...

  • Fire & Ice

    LOL

  • Stopfoolingurself

    The NFL agreed to donate 89 million for social justice causes.

    How many other companies have agreed to that large of a donation and have a higher percentage of blacks in their company?

  • WHYJESUSWHY

    Not deflecting at all. He is a hypocrite and if you want to to another man what he should do and what's in the best interest of the people, maybe he should look at himself first! Can't stand a fake hype man!

    ....about Travis Scott Kardashian Jenner performing at Superbowl LIII's halftime show.

  • Miss Thang

    So Beyonce is the only one allowed to perform at the SuperBowl??? TWICE?? GTFOH Jay and mind your own damn business.

  • Scromes1212

    They did the same thing Barney’s did lol hired civil rights leaders, created a players group (headed by Malcolm Jenkins) and pledged 80 million dollars to said group smh not much difference

  • Yoni7

    IKR!

  • Harley

    And yet still are treating players that take a stand different ie more drug test and benching them as well as letting the racist president run a muck and try and set rules

  • Harley

    Ok AND it’s ok for Travis to shuck and jive for this racist organization? It wasn’t ok for Chrisette Michelle? And it’s easy to call Jay a hypocrite yet not look at all he does for the community like the 7 billion he and his wife just raised

  • Harley

    It has a lot to do with it if you can’t see why I asked then there’s no need to continue the dialogue

  • Kendra Foster

    i got that Happy Friday. Ya'll not gonna mess me up with this fake Pro-blackness.

  • Scromes1212

    You do know Jay owns a sports agency that represents many NFL players, right? He does business directly with the owners

  • ViolettaBliss

    Jay step aside and let this man make his $$$$

  • FukkFolks2018

    You cant tell anyone what is a big deal and what is not to them. There were MANY people who did not agree with the Montgomery bus boycott since you brung MLK up. And some were INDEED still riding. History doesnt tell us that part though. The whitewashed version will have you believing nobody of color were on those buses the duration of that boycott. And well that simply is NOT true.

  • Scromes1212

    And Barney’s still treating black folks like sh*t smh

  • Kendra Foster
  • Simone

    Travis Scott, ignore Jay Z. The SB is the biggest world stage for a performer. Be about your business. In Nov 2018, Jay Z attended a Seahawks-Rams game. Was he not protesting the non-hiring of Kaepernick that day?
    https://www.google.com/amp/s/theramswire.usatoday.com/2018/11/11/nfl-rams-seahawks-jay-z-week-10/amp/

  • Scromes1212

    Jay and Beyoncé are apparently the only people that can do business with the NFL smh she has done two SB and Jay has a sports agency that has several NFL players so he does business directly with the owners smh and he was just front row at a game lol so what exactly is the part they are playing in the boycott?

  • Ang

    Thank you because you’re not objective at all.

  • Ang

    Okay. I’ll wait on the stans to respond to that...

  • KneeSee

    There's no point in black artists boycotting the super bowl when the majority of the players are black.

  • Wreckognize Game

    Thanks for the receipt. So sick of the fake outrage.

  • PlayerP

    Bish needs to be charged with a hate crime

  • Erin

    I'm normally a Knowles-Carter stan but this issh right here......have several seats _ Jay

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    Lol at jayz thinking he someones mentor. Boi ? mind your dirty deek and spaced out side wife

  • EMILY POST

    Didn’t he also try to stop meek mill from talking to people that he didn’t agree with about prison reform....
    So the point of boycotting the Super Bowl when his wife performed at it like twice??? Majority of players that play are black??? What are they boycotting exactly?

  • Cara

    Whatever kris Jenner tells Kyle to tell her husband to do is what will be done. Travis is under kris Jenner control now.

  • teather

    His stupid as$ signed up for that sh*t. What grown man in his right man would have a woman like her run his life. And who is clueless enough to think he can handle her? She intervenes in everything and threatens ppl with their total career. She's the devil in a moo moo dress.

  • teather

    All of you who say he should mind his business are part of the problem. Our community needs to intervene. Elders teach the younger men what and why. This is why we trail behind other races cuz we are unwilling to help each other, even with words of wisdom. the point is you do not affect anything in this country unless you hit the pockets. Viewership in numbers is how they make their money through ads etc. if they have less viewership, it affects their MONEY, which is all that matters to them. The boycott hits their pockets, whether they admit it or not. the NFL has seen viewership fall and that's because of us and our boycott. Yes, all the players are mostly black THAT'S THE POINT!

  • Harley

    Yeah ok hun

  • Harley

    And still has nothing to do with the NFL boycott which has garnered so much attention and a threat to the sport that the president had to chime his dumb arse in

  • Harley

    Things ARE a big deal! Just because the sheep don’t see it doesn’t mean it isn’t an issue!! I don’t subscribe by the white wash version of anything. I know what my people should be doing to promote change and what was done in the past

  • T Willis

    This boycott is stupid. The NFL is like 90% black, this boycott is hurting the millionaire players, not their billionaire owners. Jay needs to find a new soapbox.

  • T Willis

    You’re overestimating our power. The corporate structure has shown us time and time again that we are replaceable. Boycotting may have worked 50 years ago, but in today’s age of modernization and technology, we are all replaceable. And what about the players in the NFL? Do you or the boycott care about their loss in wages? How can we have power in today’s age without any money backing us? You and Jay are asking black peoples to turn away millions of dollars for what? A symbol? Cause I hope you guys aren’t expecting the system to change. The only way to change anything in this country is money and power. Jay is already wealthy and this boycott ain’t gonna hurt him or his money. I get that folks are upset, but this isn’t how you go about correcting it.

  • T Willis

    Exactly!!

  • MJ

    Thank you. The halftime show is 30 minutes, meanwhile people have been tuning in to the predominantly black workforce bashing each other's heads in all season. If they continue to play, why can't he perform?

  • T Willis

    No that’s different. Trump inauguration would affect no one but his ego and maybe the nationalist that support him. The NFL is majority black millionaires. A boycott to the NFL is hurting black people - not to mention it affects their million dollar contracts.

  • T Willis

    Huh? You’re asking black people to shut down an establishment that creates hundreds of black millionaires, and effectively unemploying thousands of Americans? This makes sense to you? And what exactly do we gain by unemploying thousands of black athletes and their ability to make millions for their families? Is there some sort of contracted agreement that if the NFL boycott is successful that prison reform will change? That black people will stop being unfairly and systematically prosecuted? Does such an agreement exist? Or is this boycott one of many symbolic unity stances where we get our egos stroked and nothing changes - except for more unemployment and the loss of millions of dollars that is probably going into our communities in the form of donations from black athletes?

    What is the end game? Cause I can tell you what’s at stake. Loss of million dollar contracts for black people and unemployment. Is that acceptable to you and jay? Because nothing will change - except to *our* detriment. So, congratulations, when this boycott ends and we create more enemies, lose millions of dollars. Thanks ?

  • Simone

    Exactly! And he attended the Seahawks @ Rams just last month. I guess he took the day off from boycotting but he's telling Travis Scott to boycott the SB.

  • Harley

    Wow so your willing to shuck and jive and walk on egg shells? There is enough money in the black community to OWN a football league. And since the majority of players ARE black then doesn’t it seem to make sense that the organization should stand with the players and not persecute them for speaking up on injustice? And you have the nerve to speak on enemies??? The white man and his systematic racism and oppression has made them enemies since the beginning. Sounds like your a bit docile! Just sit and let massa pay you and your ok with unfair treatment. Black dollar is massive IF we recycle it in our community and make our own but folks too docile and sheepish to see it

  • Harley

    Naw it’s no different it’s shucking and jiving for racist and organizations that don’t have our best interest. You have already stated that you are willing to be docile for some coins tho

    What has this big lip clown done beside sell drugs to the community and assault people which also include his relatives?

    Obama got his puppets out here telling other people what to do.President Trump is doing everything that the Democrats and the "Do Nothing" Black Caucas pretend to care about so what these nyggahs whining about?

    The administration of President Trump has passed, "The First Step Act For Prison Reform". He even just signed a bill concerning Sickle Cell Anemia research.He is correcting Clinton's fiasco and of course Obozo never even attempted to do shyt about it. President Trump makes Obozo look BAD.

    Jay Z had all kind of access to Obozo and not one agenda was discussed because he was just a prop.

  • T Willis

    Your delusion is both sad and pathetic. The black community has enough money to own a football team? Lmao really, where? Because last I checked, black people were still panhandling on a global scale begging “massa” to stop playing target practice with their sons, begging massa to fund their communities, their schools, and to stop gentrifying their neighborhoods. But yes, tell me more about this alleged millions that blacks collectively have lmao.

    To own anything in this country you need money, you need collateral, you need a network of other millionaires and businesses to vouch for you. So if that means “begging massa” for crumbs, then consider your assumption correct. Black people like you are such delusional idiots that it’s not even funny. You idiots burn every visible bridge then wonder why no other ethnicity or legitimate businesses will back you or the black community. You’re too fugging emotional and illogical. Everything with you idiots are based in symbolism and emotion. No other ethnicity thinks boycotts will solve their community’s problems, which is also why no one respects us. Other communities are using their wealth - note: they’re not trying to diminish their income and their resources - to build sustainable businesses, develop an economy within their own communities so that they can fund their own sh*t. With millions of dollars collectively gone, where is the income going to come from? The millions of blacks who sell drugs, or work under the table, or the hundreds of thousands of blacks who remain incarcerated and are unable to be productive members of society? Tell me, how do we fund your delusion once we disable the only institution that’s created black millionaires?

He's literally haven't had to sell drugs since 1991, on top of that, he has done 120% more than you or I could ever do for the black community. Were you out there bailing out BLM protesters? Were you in Africa and flint learning and donating to the water crises? Did you start a foundation geared at helping underprivileged and disenfranchised kids from the hood? Did you donate hundreds of thousands of dollars on your joint tour to HBCU students scholarships? If your answer is NO to all of those things, please STFU forever.

    Not really, especially if he gets accepted into Harvard for a Degree. It doesn't look like he plans to rap forever since he will use his smarts to hone in on the business aspect of music.

    Just like country music fans prop up their people, there will be many conservatives who will buy his music just to spite haters.

    They might not even listen to it, but will add it to their streaming list as a wink to donate to the cause.

    Wow that whole paragraph but said not a damn thing! The black dollar is worth trillions not millions! And of course the black race is the only race boycotting because we damn near invented boycotting and guess what it made a change. You can call me all the names you want and make assumptions about me but it still doesn’t negate the fact that when companies lose money they change their attitudes. So glad YOU weren’t around in the 60s when people were needed at the front lines because you obviously would have been docile and afraid. Stand for nothing or fall for anything is a true statement. Have you seen the Forbes list of billionaires? Five of them were black so yes we have enough money to provide for our own. I’m def not going to go back with someone who resorts to name calling and bashing during a debate versus using logic!!

  • J2PC

    Everything. He's done far worse to hurt a world of Black folks in large numbers. Why knock a brotha for performing to really elevate himself & seal his notoriety like he did in the name of helping an individual that he probably has never even met?

  • Ang

  • dontgetblocked

    Why don't that old man mind his own business. Let these young kids make some money. He got Beyonce's aging ass. Let Travis chill with his billion dollar woman. Sicko Mode is fire. He deserves to perform at the Superbowl.

  • dontgetblocked

    President Trump is a successful businessman. America is a business and that's why Trump is succeeding.

  • dontgetblocked

    He needs to give back after destroying lives. He sold CRACK for more than a decade!

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Look ain't nobody googling NADA! HE AIN'T DONESHYT BUT LINE HIS POCKET AND SHUT A LOT OF BLACK FOLKS OUT...EVEN SELFISHKY RUINED A LOT OF CAREERS OF OTHER BLACK...

  • Jamal Warner

    He is not in any position where he can shut any melaninated person out. He does not control the music industry. How exactly did he shut some "black folks out"? And who are these people?

  • Jamal Warner

    He's not selling drugs now. How is that even relevant now or what is the correlation that you are trying to make? Travis Scott is performing for an organization that has open white supremacist team owners. What exactly has Travis done that makes him better? He has admitted he has used drugs and he promotes this in his music.

  • Jamal Warner

    Kanye West did the same thing when he was supporting Trump.

  • Jamal Warner

    Are you Jay Z sold drugs to make music? Or did he just find a way to get out of selling drugs and make a better life for himself?

  • Jamal Warner

    What does someone gender have anything to do with it?

  • Bashi22

    Travis do what you want you have a family to take care of. Jayz won't help you out if you miss a child support payments once you and that Kylie broke up. Those Kardashian will drag your name to the media. More exposure for you and my lie Jenner or Kardashian loves the media. Everyone in the entertainment business are one in the same.

  • jason rite

    they marry whiite women anyway,lol

  • sha35

    Well according to Jayz he "doesnt have to give back to the black community because he presence is charity enough." This was his response when Harry Belafonte called him out for taking so much from the black community, but giving nothing back.

  • sha35

    But he sure like to bragged about that same oz he sold twenty odd years ago , over and over again.

  • Waya Hedia

    ha.. great pic. they both look stupid s hell.

  • ?jessica?

    They stirring a cup of tea on Travis (Get out)

  • Elevated Soul

    GTFOH!!!!....It's clear that you worship that fool and I don't GAF about whom he supposedly bailed out.

    Don't you dare sit up on your ignant azzzzzzzzzz and tell me what I have or have not done when you don't know shyt about me.Clearly you have not done anything and you are projecting that onto me.You are just the average DUMB FOLLOWER who repeat the dumb shyt!!!

    WTF are you doing besides sitting up hear being a cheerleader for a drug dealer and an abusive thug?....Unlike you I'm not impressed with Jay-Z and I will not ALLOW you or anyone else to try and make me be impressed either.

    No... You STFU and sit your ignant azzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz down. You sit up here talking about HBCU's when it was his buddy Obama who took 90 million away from them and he stood silent...Blacks like you ain't shyt because you always cape for criminals.

    You are now dismissed and completely discontinued.

  • Elevated Soul

    Fools like that idiot think it's okay that "he sold drugs that lead to deaths and crimes by the users", because that crook got a lot of money.

    I can't stand sellouts like that because they are just too ignorant for words but their stupidity is a detriment to Black people.

  • Elevated Soul

    You sound like a d@mn fool because many people who support President Trump are not even supporting the NFL and haven't done so in the last recent years.Black fools like you actually believe it is you who hurt the NFL, LMAO!......

    Many of you idiots fail to grasp that you are not the ones who had season tickets. My Dad had season tickets for 18 years but he stopped watching the NFL because he said "it's not fun anymore since politics by the left destroyed the game" and he is not alone.

    People like you may have bought a jersey here and there but I'm talking about people who paid thousands every year for merchandise.

    Those fools don't know what the hell they protesting.They are just followers who are prisoners in their own mind.

  • Allihave2say

    Jay Z has laid down with more white dogs than any other black rapper, yet he discouraged Meek Mill from going to the White House to speak on prison reform and now this! Jay Z continues to attend basketball games and football games. The owners have always been racists who understand that their winning is based on the black man the same as it was in slavery. I don't see JZ as an activist.

    When it it served his purpose he betrayed Dam Dash and the other black men who were trying to stand up for themselves and other blacks in the entertainment/music industry. Just because JZ is wearing his hair ala Jimi Hendrixx, there is no strength or power for the black man in him. He is self serving from life into death.

  • Allihave2say

    Let's remember that Jay made his ducks shucking and jiving in the face of the white man.

  • Allihave2say

    What about supporting the NFL players who are black and still playing, even tho their chicken asses wouldn't kneel and lose their money? The NFL can't afford to lose all of them. They should have supported CK but they also need support.

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    Oh so let's see if he chooses to perform, are they going to blackbáll him like they did Chrisette Michelle.

  • 11pink123

    Why did Jay Z and Beyoncé perform at these NFL stadiums, if they care so much?

    Let’s do the math here...

    Recently while they boycotting the NFL, they performed at:

    1. At&T stadium-Dallas Cowboys
    2. Fed EX Field- owned by Daniel Snyder-RedSkins
    3. Century Link Field-Owned by Seattle Seahawks.

    And I can name a bunch more. Sooo what exactly am I missing here???

  • 11pink123

    Him and Beyoncé just performed at The Cowboys, Redskins, Browns and a bunch of other NFL stadiums. Sooo I’m trying to figure out, how he feel that’s any different??

  • 11pink123

    He just had a string of concerns at NFL stadiums like 30 days ago. He so full of shyt. I cannot stand him.

  • Jamal Warner

    Yawn!

  • Jamal Warner

    Most rappers have rapped about drugs even if they have sold them or if they have not. It's part of the culture. My point was what does that have to do with him no wanting a rapper to perform at an event for an organization that mistreats people based on race.

  • Jamal Warner

    I am not here to name call. My point is that Travis career may suffer if his base is against him performing at this event. The NFL has open white supremacist as team owners, who have openly called players prisoners and other derogatory names. Yet, you fail to even mention that or acknowledge any of the NFL wrongdoings. It speaks volumes especially the "Black fools like you" part.

    Further, your post is an attempt to minimize the efforts of people who disagree with how people are mistreated. This is not a political issue nor about a political ideology as you stated "the left destroyed the game". The issue is racism white supremacy. I see a lot of people try to frame the narrative as a political ideology that they oppose in order to ignore racism white supremacy. And yes, people boycotting the NFL by not watching the game has impacted the organization negatively. What are you talking about?

  • T Willis

    This!!!

  • Allihave2say

    See! I didn't know about this so thanks for sharing.

  • The Last Word

    Yeah. I assume No Limit Sports is going to stop doing business.

  • J2PC

    Very relevant when the lives & mentality of many Black folks were/are forever ruined because minds were negatively affected or impacted by all of that. There are different ways to infect the minds of many Black folks to where many have not been uplifted in positive light but have had their minds & behavior infected to nothing good have come of it.

    Just look at all of the negative statistics for the lives of many Blacks across the board to compared to other ethnicities. Using a psychological tools to infect the minds of many to where a number of Black folks see each other as the enemy & all is white supremacy. All it takes is paying $$$ to a Black person willing to be used to get the job done. That's nothing to be proud of. ijs

  • Jamal Warner

    Are you saying that melaninated people are incapable of thinking for themselves? Because that is is exactly what it seems. Especially, when you stated "blackfolks were/are forever ruined".

    "Just look at all the negative statistics", as if other groups don't commit crime or negative things. Your post is to demonize melaninated people while totally ignoring what other groups do and have done. There is nothing Travis Scott can do that will be worse than racism white supremacy. All melaninated are victims of racism white supremacy.

  • J2PC

    Absolutely not. Of course, there are some Black folks who are independent thinkers with a mind of their own. However, the industry social machine in work that is forever working to manipulate folks into behaving like puppets on a string being pulled by masters or mindless sheeples aka cattles needing to be controlled by others in control...is very real.

    Their only threat is someone who dare to take a stand on what they believe & not be controlled by what others thinks.

    Sheeples tend to feel insecure, powerless & threaten by those who are view as outliers with a mind of their own & not afraid to move on their own beliefs or perspective. Yet, the majority of them move in groups...but the outlier seems more powerful with the ability to undo everything by one simple action or performance.

  • Jamal Warner

    Why is that every time a non-white person says or does something that is against the interest of melaninated people, even if we are protesting racism, they are uplifted by white people? No one has a problem with him thinking for himself. The problem arises when melaninated people are victims of racism white supremacy and you have people who work against our interest who are victims themselves. That is the definition of a coon(a).

    The issue is not free-thinkers, but coon(a), who actions put other people at risk. He does not have to think like everyone else. His line of thinking is not unique nor is it anything special. He is only uplifted because he acts as a shill for racism white supremacy. They can use him to hide their hate. He is a tool.

  • J2PC

    That list goes on & on about being used as tools. Tools are those who are used by White Supremacy to write & push negative lyrics & violent or degrading videos on their own Black people to infect minds, mentalities, perceptions & behavior to keep a number of Black people practicing genocide, envy, jealousy, disrespect & hatred for one another to keep a community of people divided which will self-implode.

    Tools are also those used & paid for by White Supremacy only if they market or sell negative images & behaviors to keep a people from ever amounting to anything positive and always at the bottom of the gutter, barrel or totem pole via distraction.

    -look at how easy it was to get lost souls or minorities to sport the prison look & behavior as their new fashion. Many of those Black males growing up in fatherless homes with little guidance with no sense of self-respect or self-esteem were easy victims of being conditioned to drop or sag their drawers & pants preparing them for what we see now in the alarming rates of Black males in prisons/jails, STDs & HIV spread to fastest growing rates for new cases of HIV: Black females.

  • J2PC

    'WS Tools' come in different forms & used as different ways of destroying the unity, minds & behavior Black folks under the guise of partying or having fun. -it is anything but that. Yet, other groups are more focused on academics which allows them to moving on in achieving higher heights, jobs & leadership positions instead of behaving their way to jails & prisons or unwanted pregnancies, STDs/HIV, etc..

    More of them are doing their family proud instead of destroying it. ijs

  • Jamal Warner

    Your post is not based in reality. Melaninated people are obtaining degrees as any other groups. In fact, black women are obtaining degree at a rate higher than any other group. Just one aspect. Go figure!

    You forgot to mention the obstacles that one group has to face and others are privilege to not have too. Your post is neglecting to mention racism white supremacy and the impact it has on its victims.

  • Jamal Warner

    No, tools are the ones who own the mediums and promote the music you speak about. Your post dismisses the role of white supremacist and blame the victims. Name one major label owned by melaninated people.

    Your entire post negate the role of white supremacy. You are pointing to the effects and negating the root. Who created the prison industrial complex and instituted mass incarceration? You are pointing to symptoms of the system. People making music or dressing a certain way due to their conditions is a symptom of the system.
