Controversy continues to swirl around rapper Jay-Z's lucrative partnership deal with the National Football League (NFL) for halftime entertainment consolation and social justice causes. Many say Jay-Z - a former drug dealer - sold out free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick for a quick buck.

Kaepernick settled a discrimination lawsuit against the NFL for a reported $10 million. But he has expressed a desire to play for any team that will sign him. Kaepernick was blackballed by the NFL for taking a knee during the National Anthem.

Sports journalist Jemele Hill was among the first to call out the aging rapper for sitting down at the table without Kaepernick.

In an op-ed for The Atlantic, she noted that Jay-Z was, "Ironically, one of the people who... advised Scott not to perform at the Super Bowl" last year.

"Clearly Jay-Z's support of Kaepernick only went so far. Regardless, why would Jay-Z waste any of his enormous social and cultural capital on the NFL when he doesn't need the league's platform, money, resources, or validation?"

She added: "Jay-Z isn't getting enough out of the deal to justify the sacrifice of some of his credibility. This alliance plays right into the NFL's hands, because the league seems determined to banish any memory of Kaepernick with its recent social-justice efforts—even though it's likely that Jay-Z and the NFL wouldn't even be entering into this arrangement if Kaepernick hadn't taken a knee in 2016.

"By leaving Kaepernick completely out of the mix, Jay-Z is now complicit in helping the NFL execute its strategy. Now he is an accomplice in the league’s hypocrisy," she wrote.

    Seems about right

  • Wreckognize Game

    My issue is that people are still watching football but complaining about who is doing what. If you are against it all, participate in the “boycott” at your level and don’t watch it, don’t buy jerseys and don’t go to the games. As an analyst with your own show and resources, don’t cover the games either. Hypocritical people still having game day parties.

  • Braxton P. Hartnabrig

    All speculation!!!! Even if it is true, why are you surprised by this action of someone who sold crack cocaine in his own neighborhood? And why is it always a black woman running her mouth starting drama? Most niggas in Angola Louisiana State Prison, San Quintin, and Rikers are in because of a woman and her name is not Suzie.

  • AmericanDream

    Black people are so busy using expressions like 'uncle tom' all the time so much so that when the real Uncle Tom is in front of them they don't even realize it. I don't have a problem with motherf#ckers getting a paycheck for them and their families but when a camel looking negro takes it upon himself to say things like ' we're past kneeling' that's when I draw the line .

    Who the hell is 'we'? Who gave you the mandate to speak on behalf of 'we'? Like seriously . Jay z is the ultimate field negro who in exchange for a check is debasing himself meanwhile you got white athletes taking a knee. Go figure .

    He's partly to blame though,many of you and your hero worship , making Gods out of mere mortals is what allows this former drug dealer to think he has some kind of authority to speak on behalf of millions of people .

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Anyone with a damn brain know demon Jay z has and is a thief and will be sold to the highest bidder ..... ya cant expect stand up behavior from a demonic individual.... over it ... same with Trump ... when these demons backstab why are folks shocked like wtf ..... and their favorite game is to harp on a cause .... only to tarnish the shyt and take credit meanwhile stealing folks blind .... does that remind you of anyone .... should remind you of Trumps work ethics .... morally corrupt and will throw that azz under the bus quick ... over it ! Wake the fawk up folks ... it's being shown to everyone for a reason ...

  • Wreckognize Game

    I am a boxing fan and never really cared about football. It’s just funny to me how people want all the people with platforms to stand up while they are still sitting down and enjoying the game. Maybe they should just watch college ball ?

  • $92471650

    Jay Z probably in some direct or in direct way had something to do with Nip having to leave. Either Jay Z had it orchestrated or God allowed Nip to be pulled out before Nip went left running around hanging with the demon crew Jay Z and friends.

    Make it plain please! And we don't know what type of deal was agreed upon between Kaep and the NFL. Neither party has spoke on it so he may have conceded the fact that he will never play in the league again, and so to Jay Z's point, what's next? So glad you made that point.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

  • WutizstillHERE!

    Every and anybody who puts money over morals can be bought.. please understand the nature of the beast. Jay-Z at his core was morally bankrupt as a dealer in these streets. He chose his pockets over the community. He assisted in the destruction of the people for profit when he sold drugs...Now how in the helllllll do you think that would ever change? A man can only pretend to have a moral compass but for so long until you wave his kryptonite(for Jay-z its money) in his face then the truth always reveals its self. Also.. please stop putting Kap and Jay-Z in the same conversation..unless you are comparing opposites. Kap had the opportunity to be quiet collect his NFL millions and be good...his MORAL COMPASS was too strong to do that..unlike Jay-Z who say he is for the people UNTIL THE MONEY IS PRESENTED.. let that sit on your table for a minute..

  • Eric B

    Do you not feel the same way about Kap when he accepted an undisclosed amount of money and signed an NDA to drop his lawsuit (alleging collusion) against the NFL? It seems the amount offered/accepted met his threshold of being bought. Yet, he's still willing to play in the NFL if given the opportunity. I have a hard time wrapping my head around that.

  • tia

    Jay is only a hypocrite because other artists will attempt to do this or that and he will talk them out of it only to backdoor and do the same thing. Example, like Meek Mill wanted to talk to Trump about prison reform. No, Jay Z talked him out of it when Meek could have made an impact. How many folks have Jay talked out of any potential partnerships, performing or meeting this that or the other? Not really about a puppet, coon, etc. Jay Z is just a grimy ni$$a to me. He pumps these young folks up with his advice and always turns around and eventually does the same thing for the right price. I wouldn't trust Jay as far as he can be thrown. At this point, Jay has established a pattern. He gets on the bandwagon. Yet, for the right amount of change he will jump off. He is not for the people..only for himself. He ain't shit.

  • Myopinion

    Well jay-z was acting like he was behind Kaep on his protest, bashed others (Travis Scott) for doing the super bowl and then turn around behind Kaep's back and made a deal with the very people he was bashing. He's full of hypocracy. Kanye and Steve out right did their stuff but Jay-z betrayed Kaepernick. That's the difference.

This is all to confuse the sheep on who should they follow. All of thier hands are dirty . No one is calling out the white man because they are not slaves and have no leader. White men have been making deals for ever and owning shit but let one negro fall out of line and all the slave get restless. Give it the eff up and mind the business that pays you. Remember the black politicians and how they have been making money off us the same as the above mentioned. Now let that sink in and realise you are being played.

  • $92471650

    exactly. Nip was already crowned king with out him. The silly part is Nip knew from the start they wasnt right, you could see it in his face when they ask about Jay z buying them CD's. Nip was like, I dont know what his motive was, hopefully just supporting the younger generation. But the fact that he used the word motive, tells you he knew Jay was a snake.

    Yesterday Snoop said him and Jay Z seen Nip somewhere and was some proud uncles. I wanted to tell Snoop, no nigga you was proud of Nip, Jay Z was jealous.

  • Calikush

    I've read some of the commentary and I find it truly crazy. Jay-Z is a visionary people! Do you think with the moves this man has made for his people, he's just going to let his platform atomize like that??? That's why he make covert moves without involving others. That man is GENIUS! He knows they're ATTEMPTING to use him but his shrewdness is to tactical and the pinks will never understand his methodology. The propagandized machine is at work AGAIN and yall falling for it. Stop with the sheep mentality people.

  • Bushbabe

    Both Jayz and Kaepernick are about the business that pays them. Kaepernick is a dumb jock who advised Nike to protest the same flag that Obama had two of hanging at his sec. inaugural address. The dumb leading dumber. Black people need to get out of this hive mentality and educate themselves before all of the black communities resemble Bmore, Chicago, San Diego etc.. We have no leaders just race pimps propped up bu the establishment to deceive us. We are doomed if we continue like this. It's like they know our habits and exploit us through them.

    This is true , still doesn’t change the fact of what he did . I’ve said many times that he never envisioned it would become this big . The kneeling part wasn’t even his idea , he originally wanted to sit until a veteran told him that kneeling was more patriotic.

    Still it doesn’t change that he did it and became the catalyst for the movement . Doesn’t change the fact that Jay rode for him and said he had his corner . Doesn’t change the fact that Jay-z never reached out to him until 24 hours after the deal , despite the deal taking over a year to get done.

He talked prison reform , social injustice. Him and Kim and freeing wrongfully prisoned inmates . They are actually making changes.

    Dapper dan also sat at the table . Gucci hired a Black chief executive for diversity. You ain’t have to like them but changes happened . People called Kanye and Dapper Dan a coon , but Jayz chooses to take a check to entertain these krackas with music and people give this Nigga a pass.

    He loves the game...he wants to play...and he deserves that money, they conspired against him just like Jay-z did. I hope he can maneuver a law suit against Jay-z.

  • WutizstillHERE!

    He was owed that because of a wrong done to him for speaking against the powers that be in the NFL period.. He absolutely is owed that for having his job unjustly stripped from him for enacting his rights to protest. Question if you were unjustly stripped from a job you trained for all your life and only wanted to do forever, would you say ok let me see if I can be a janitor somewhere? No you would fight for fair treatment within that line of work you trained for. You would sue them for the the damage to your reputation and still push to do what you love... Unlike corporate where there are tons of opportunities to "go elsewhere" the NFL is an entity all its own. So what is your suggestion of what Kap could do with his talent?

  • $92471650

    i know i see that

  • Applebootay

    I can see both sides of the coin....I'm on the fence with this one....on one hand, if this is an strategic move to somehow gain leverage to get a team to sign Kap then yeah ok....but...other the hand that shit prolly not gone happen and jayz will just be richer.

  • WutizstillHERE!

    Also Jay-Z doesn't really have a dog in this fight except the fact he can relate to the black man's experience with racism. If there was one Record label in the US that monopolized the record industry and they stopped Jay-Z from making money in the industry because he took a stand against something, then he would. But Jay-z made a business move in an industry he isn't really connected to piggybacking on Kap but discarding the issue in lieu of his pockets. The NFL is using him to get the black dollars that were lost...

  • Applebootay

    That's exactly what I said and it still sounded like BS to me...I have a natural BS detector and I call BS! I stand to be corrected should this garner something for KAP, if not, I'm taking a knee on the carters.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Your profile has the word "attack" in it. Maybe that's why.

  • Applebootay

    So he started kneeling when his career started going down hill......to do what?...accelerate the going down the hill? Please make it make sense.

  • TwitterFingerz

    It’s so hard for people to believe that Jay Z sold Kap out. He’s getting paid big bucks to be their employee, not fight for no justice. But, he’s beeeeeeen this way since he got on. When the money calling, all morals and ethics go out the door. He’s crossing you, period.

  • Applebootay

    I'll believe it when I see it. and he's a MAN a fallible, prone to make mistakes, human man. He is not God. He has fvcked up before and he'll fvck up again. I just hope this isn't one of those times.

  • Bonita

    It's hard for those who aren't critical thinkers to see the obvious. Jay Z has a track record of making back door deals with these slave masters. And got the audacity to be walking around with some locks in his head.

  • Applebootay

    Exactly, most people have a hard time with that because you haven't established an lifestyle that accommodates millions. He has. I liken the NFL payoff to what is know as SEVERANCE PAY. I've taken it myself. A job once fired me because they saw a message that I sent to another co-worker saying they didn't like black people. I had to sign a NDA and I took my severance and went to work for a black firm. What is so hard to understand him feeding hisself...I'm seriously baffled everytime someone tries to make a point of him accepting the money....like WTF was he suppose to do.

  • Applebootay

    I can't wrap my mind around ppl having a problem with KAP taking a payout.. I liken the
    NFL payoff to what is know as SEVERANCE PAY. I've taken it 2-3 times myself in the span of my career. A
    job once fired me because they saw a private IM that I sent to another
    co-worker saying they didn't like black people. I had to sign a NDA and
    I took my severance and went to work for a black firm. What is so hard
    to understand him feeding himself?...I'm seriously baffled every time
    someone tries to make a point of him accepting the money....like WTF was

  • MoneyMillz1914

    Kaep got hit off and went undercover. The NFL knows what they are doing. But Kaep thought they were blocking and they were because of his stance. Haven't heard much from him since so I know he got paid to not make anymore noise. But Kaep is most likely is cooked in football so he needed the funds.

  • Applebootay

    Let's be clear....

    The NFL and Jay-Z's teaming up for EVENTS and SOCIAL ACTIVISM. NOT HIRING OF PLAYERS....if this partnership doesn't yield some type of position with the NFL for KAP then what kind of social activism is it really? What's the plan for social activism via the NFL?....I need details, I need the plan, where's that? Social activism is an intentional action with the goal of bringing about social change. If you feel strongly about a cause and are working towards a change, you could be considered an activist. An activist is anyone who is fighting for change in society.usually when this type of deal is made they spell out what they are fighting for? who are they fighting for? What political party? The NFL helped get Trump elected....so WTF IS THE PLAN MAN!!??

    Activism consists of efforts to promote, impede, direct, or intervene in social, political, economic, or environmental reform with the desire to make changes in society. Forms of activism range from mandate building in the community (including writing letters to newspapers), petitioning elected officials, running or contributing to a political campaign, preferential patronage (or boycott) of businesses, and demonstrative forms of activism like rallies, street marches, strikes, sit-ins, or hunger strikes.

    Show me the money!! until then, it don't mean shat...I'm done for the day yall happy weekend.

  • Applebootay

    Kap was knealing for the injustices surrounding police brutality...then they turned on him because Trump was in office....

  • Joy King

    “He doesn’t need the league’s platform, money, resources, or validation.” First off Jemele, we don’t know what Jay-Z needs. You don’t ever count somebody else’s pockets. And the Forbes list doesn’t count. Because I do have a great deal of respect for Jay-Z as a businessman, I’m trying to give him the benefit of the doubt. But my respect for Colin, is next level. The fact that Colin is not on board, has me side eyeing this entire deal.

    People have the right to protest in peace. The NFL did everything they could to strip players of that right. It’s not a good look for Jay to align himself with a league who made their position clear. He needs to rectify this situation because it’s not going to end in his favor.

    JayZ helped the NFL ban CK? How sway? The NFL blackballed him because they didn't agree with his actions that cost them millions of dollars. Even if Jay hadn't taken that deal with them, NFL teams still weren't going to pick him. Is it unfair? Hell yeah but reality is freedom of speech has consequences!! JayZ doesn't have enough power to ensure that the NFL hires CK, he's a paid puppet like those paid *woke* kneeling players!! I'm still waiting for part 2 of the "movement"!

    Is this about Kap having a job or social injustice. All I continue to hear people say is Kap is out of a job still. Bottom line is Kap could be hired to shut everyone up, the league saves face and continues to do business as usual. If that is the case what victories have really been won?

    JAY-Z
    TO BECOME PART OWNER OF NFL TEAM !

    Jay-Z had multiple reasons for becoming part of the NFL family, and TMZ Sports has learned one of them is that he is going to become part owner of an NFL team ... and it's going to happen soon.

    Sources connected to Jay and with direct knowledge tell us ... Jay is going to have a "significant ownership interest" in an NFL team.

    As for which team ... we're not being told, but we are told "it is going to happen in the near future."

  • RedBullWoke

    Accepting the money doesn't mean he dropped the lawsuit, it means both parties reached a settlement. Kap winning the civil suit would have the same effect as accepting payment from a settlement, he would have won money. The complainant has the option of of going to trial or settling. Going to trial means taking the risk that a jury will award LESS than what the defendant offered during settlement negotiations. It's all legal strategy. The subtle difference between what you're saying is: Kap accepting money to NOT initiate a law suit vs. INITIATING the lawsuit and pursuing one legal strategy instead of another.

    Jay Z just didn't give A F about Colin Kapernick or his playing in the NFL more than his business deal with Managing Roc Nation... Its all about his Roc Nation artists performing at the Superbowl. Fake Outrage Fake Concern... Typical Democratic moves.
    People are fake but who was protesting the NFL besides Colin Kaepernick the majority of the players are black and they would of had to back Colin Kaepernick... Do Football players seem conscience to you really???? 1/2 of the black ones don't even know or care about being black. Do they even like other black people really?

    Jay Z was instrumental in getting Chris Brown completely black balled for life. I remember him doing news stories stating he'd kill Chris Brown for hitting Rihanna. Jay Z made the rounds to all the media venues and morning shows asking them to railroad Chris. Then the white cookie cruncher Robin set Chris by inviting him to her show to promote his new album but then threw in the knife about Rihanna. Meanwhile everyone acts like Jay Z doesn't have a knack for beating women.

    He has no age limits as he was videotaped punching a 12 year old girl in the face for taking his picture. Let's have a look shall we!

  • Bushbabe

    This needed to be front and center. We as black people need to stop following. White people have no leaders.

  • Bushbabe

    Kaepernick and his come to Jesus moment after being raised white is a cover for something sinister. JAYZ is a street dude who is looking out for number one. TALCUM x is a white cave demon exploiting black victimhood and yes he is getting paid for it.

  • Bushbabe

    Ask Kaepernick's white parents what victories are being one. When the dust settles he will run to them for cover.

  • Toppsey Krets

    Bingo, and regarding the slapping incident of the intern. The violence continues years later,
    now you know why Solange went ape sh!t..

    Oh, and if your wondering why Rihanna hasnt recorded or performed, its because she fell out with Jay, she felt she was being intentionally sabatoged from within, remember her album leak, and Tidal release Fiasco

    She wants out, so does Kanye, in fact Kanye is suing the label.

  • Bushbabe

    His white parents have money and he is a spoiled little rich kid. I will save my sympathy for people who are really hurting economically not rich athletes who because they were raise by rich white parents feel entitled.

  • Bushbabe

    JAYZ is a scymbag and Kaepernick is a spoiled entitled rich athlete raise by white parents who taught him to feel privalegd. Save your sympathy for real brothers in the hood who are actually hurting economically. What a farce for black people to even care. This pos kapernick was a sub par athlete. His white parents will make sure he is fine.

  • Toppsey Krets

    FAKE NEWS, Let me give you some behind the scenes. First leaking this type of info jeopardizes any REAL DEAL to buy into a team.

    Jay and Beyonce are Famous for leaking FAKE NEWS TO PRESS like that island Jay bought Beyonce years ago, or the trust fund set up for Nipsey Hussles kids or the fact that Oprah was Blue Ivys God Mother.Oprah denied this her self to press immediately. The island Jay supposedly purchased Strangers Cay also know as Jwycesska Island, is owned by John Sykes (British entrepreneur) and has been since 2014.
    Nipseys family put end to the fake trust fund rumor.

    There was the ridiculous story that the Carters were on the A List to attend the Royal Wedding of Meghan, Duchess of Sussex.Yet again the world saw this was not true. Recently Jay has stated he spoke to Kapernick prior to the NFL deal, and what do you know... Kaps attorney Mark Geragos and Kaps girlfriend say this was, yet again another lie.

    These are just a small sample of literally hundreds of strategic fake press releases to keep the Carters in the lime light as Super wealthy and all powerfull.Its all smoke and mirrors.

    Jay has a secret group of investors that use him as the FACE of deals they go after. They were there for Roca Wear, His Hotel (google it), Ace of Spades, Tidal, Uber, so on and so on.

    His most recent financial investment was Uber actually less than a million. Thats NOT NFL team buying money.

    Most of Jays investments have flopped I dont have the room or time to list them all.

    The biggest Flop for Mr "Billionaire" was Tidal
    Tidal has yet to turn a profit and is still operating at a loss even after Sprint dumped cash into it.

    Jay doesnt have the money to put into a NFL Team and in reality is no where near being a Billionaire any more than Trump or Kylie Jenner was when Gate Keeper and Failed Financial Advice Magazine turned Celebrity Pay to Play Rag Forbes declared them as such.

    His group of silent financial backers are NOT happy with all the losses they have aquired behind Jay.

    They will NOT back him for heavy Multi Millions to buy into a team as a Majority owner and he has a very slim chance of being a minority owner like he was with the Brooklyn Nets.

    How long are yall going to be dumb? Both Jay Z and Kap are full of shyt. have been playing tf out of yall. KP was only kneeling cause he knew his career was about to end that preseason, he has nothing to loose by doing that. The NFL only kept him so they dont look racist, and he knew that so he capitalized off it.

    Jay z never was against the NFL, all though he wanted everyone else to be. Him and Beyonce did most of there concerts at the NFL staduims during that time. And had they artist perform, after telling everyone else not to.

    Both KP and Jay are frauds. Why wont yall wake tf up?

    Kaep is 1/2 white and he was adopted by white parents. He is biracial and that does not make him entitled or spoiled. He has given back to the black community millions fold.

  • the guest

    Jay Z wanted Rihanna to be his concubine. He wanted Rihanna to love him and when she didn't he fixed her music career.

  • Bushbabe

    That makes him a privalegd biracial child raised by a white couple. He has colonizer tendencies period. He is doing what he was taught.

  • the guest

    Kaep being hired IS social justice.

  • the guest

    Amen.

  • And then there is that!

    Social justice for who? For him to go back into the same racist organization with no change. Kap took his payout and has been sitting quietly. Because that payout probably also came with a muzzle. If Kap was really about social justice when the league offered him a payout he would have declined and stated his wants. Like a spot on a team, and a seat at the table, funds be donated in his name etc. But nope he took his money and ran and y'all still arguing about him not having a job. Was this protest about Kap or social injustice?

    Jay-Z to Acquire Ownership Stake in NFL Team

    Such a deal would make Jay-Z the first black team owner in league history, Bleacher Report notes, adding that many insiders say he has long wanted to own an NFL team. “The deal with the NFL nudges Jay-Z far closer to that goal, if that indeed is the objective,” said Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk. “He now has a formal relationship with the league, giving other owners a chance to get to know him well, naturally allowing the development of a familiarity that most potential owners never have when they show up and try to buy a team.”

    Having a minority stake in a team is not him owning the whole team. Nor is he the first black person with a minority stake in a team. Serena Williams with the Dolphins and usher with the falcons. Most NFL teams are family owned and no team is up for sale, nor will they sell enough shares to Jay to give him a controlling interest. He will have 5 to 10 percent ownership max.

    Its a anonomously leaked story, with zero facts, no team, no receipts, no interveiw, no qoute,no dollar amount,NO PROOF. Its typical damage control to try to push back against all the negative press as the bigger story. There is not one iota of credible factual information in the story.

    Its doesnt matter how many links you post of websites that pick up the story

    Yes, I would definately agree with this 100%. She was 16 when he pulled her in the industry. A Naive island girl, she felt she owned him loyalty. She wisened up and finally cut him offf. Jay did not approve of Hassan Jameel he instructed her her cut him off, this drove an even deeper wedge between them.

    But Kap never took any real risk. Kneeling is a symbolic gesture not a movement. He never boycotted the nfl and always wanted back in even until this day. So who’s really evil? Kap can take a job but jay can’t? What does the nfl have to do with police brutality anyway?

    And I still cant find a SINGLE, BLACK LAWYER hired by Kaep to negotiate that deal. Only lawyers I saw in the pics with him grinning with Kaep from ear to ear after the deal was announced were white and JEWISH. Y'all can keep worrying about Kaep's employment status: I give ZERO F's.

    I am over here cracking up watching all the hate from the same people that still watch football. Every time you watch a game you're supporting the NFL so I do not get how you can bat an eye at hov for the money move he just made. We black people fall for any and everything and fight against each other too much. Let that me live and eat because we did not get on that Field and take a knee, we kept watching the sport and none of you supported the movement when you kept watching . You want to hurt the NFL? STOP WATCHING!

  • Solstice

    ??????!!!!! Evillene?!?! ????

  • what?why

    Ck was a so-so ball player - really not a pro baller. His time ws coming to an end. So was his kneeling really for injustice (which he has never spoken about) or was it for attention to get a job?

  • what?why

    Yes, he is a spoiled rich kid - crying all the way to the bank now.

  • what?why

    He was losing his job because he was no a good football player - plain and simple. He knew it too!

  • thighcandy

    Is everyone forgetting that, after the Superbowl, Colin settled his case with the NFL earlier this year??? Colin CHOSE not to air the NFL collusion out in public; which is what would have happened if they went to court. Colin took a check and signed a non-disclosure in that settlement, which is why we have not heard directly from him since.
    Colin ended his own movement and the farse he is still propagating that after 3 years out of the NFL he would still be able to play at that level when the last time we saw him on the field he was just "aight"... is a joke.
    Having a black owner with majority stake of a team means that they are at the table, have a voice and some level of influence when league wide decisions get made. That is another way to affect change. It this point people just want to be mad because it's Jay-Z.

    Beyonce stated someone gave her a box of darkness that she now loves. That was Jay Z and devil worship. Their truth is all over the internet. Sometimes it's just talk but there are too many sources that have documented their satanic practices very well.

    Chris was clean cut, fresh, popular and doing great things in the community. He decided to be the monster the world kept telling him he was. Now, he's lost his way. There were times when I wondered if Jay Z is the one who really beat Rihanna and Chris took the fall. Now that's just me. I'd read somethings about J & Rihanna at that time, pregnancy, herpes, and more. We know that Jay Z has punched many women and they've all be punched multiple times in their faces. The media then down plays it as a skit but the expression on that dog's face was with true intent.

    If IBOGAINE really works, Chris needs to go get the treatment so he can get off the drugs, get therapy, take a DNA test on Royalty (yes I said it!) and heal his life. He let the devils win.

  • Allihave2say

    There's another video of him beating a woman, I searched everywhere but it's been cleaned up I guess.

  • Allihave2say

    tell it

  • Allihave2say

    Jay Z took advantage of Rihanna as a child. He was sleeping with her when she was underage the same as that rapper girl who has hearing issues. Rihanna thought they were a couple which is why she was holding his hand going up the stage and he jerked away.

    I'm inclined to believe that Rihanna couldn't blame JZ for her injuries because he was her boss. Something about the CB fight always rubbed me wrong. Perhaps it was true that she had an abortion, gave him herpes or beat him first. I don't recall seeing CB with bruised knuckles. I do recall JZ get a lot of praise for being an upstanding guy at Rihanna's expense

  • Allihave2say

    trader j been blackballing his own people to get ahead for decades. He'd sell his wife out to get ahead/money. Let's explore why Rihanna seemed so easily to forgive CB for that fight that occurred after an event that JZ hosted or attended.

    Jay Z tells woman very rudely "Don't touch me" at inauguration. He was so rude that at .30 -.33 secs Beyonce's face was showing shock.

    Well I never understood wtf Kap protest was all about. I just defended his right to do it but he also opted out of his contract with the 49ers passing up on $$ because he thought other teams were interested.????? Then he became huey P reincarnated it got weird but I like him though. Still don’t know what the nfl is suppose to do about it all....

  • MoneyMillz1914

    Do you know the context? Foh. What truth? F you and her. My profile is not private like yours. Foh.

    Amen. I am soooo disappointed with Jay Z. I know he is a "business" man but based on his checkered background; there is only so far he should go. I guess becoming a billionaire; we all now know how he has achieved his wealth - he sells out. Always heard that about him. But, with Goddell and the rest of the racist owners - they will "eat his lunch". Guarantee he comes out on the short end of the stick. Next place we will see him is "rubbing elbows" with The Orangeman - Trump". Jay Z you really disappointed me - I have always been an admirer.

    Kap's settlement had nothing to do with kneeling. They paid him that money so he wouldn't expose how they blackballed him from the league. Him kneeling for the movement is a separate matter. Jay Z would have no dealings with the NFL had Kap not knelt.

  • thighcandy

    The NFL blackballed him for kneeling and Colin ultimately accepted a settlement payment because he was blackballed for kneeling. So not sure how that translates to kneeling having nothing to do with the settlement.

    The original goal of Colin's protest was to raise awareness on the rampant social injustice in America.
    However, Colin's decision to sign the non-disclosure agreement means he contractually can no bring the NFL into that movement. It has become clear that Colin had a great idea but no long term strategy; particularly one that transcends the platform the NFL afforded him.

    This is not a defense of the NFL. I have been boycotting that league since now for almost 3 years in solidarity with Colin but I am not blind to the decisions he made in the process (i.e. opting out of his last contract with the 49ers, signing a NDA & accepting a settlement).
