Jay-Z is baffled by the overwhelmingly negative response to his lucrative new deal with the National Football League to provide halftime entertainment and launch a social justice campaign. Friends say Jay-Z, 50, believed using the USA's biggest sports platform to advance a worthy cause - social injustice - would be well received by everyone. He was wrong.

The aging rap mogul has come under fire for undermining the work done by NFL free agent Colin Kaepernick who was blackballed after he took a knee during the National Anthem to bring attention to police brutality.

The Wall Street Journal reports Jay-Z was "shocked" that his new deal with the league was being interpreted by some as backstabbing Kaepernick. The father-of-5 reportedly called Kaepernick a day before he announced his joint partnership. But Kaepernick's girlfriend, Nessa, said that was a lie.

Eric Reid, the Carolina Panthers safety and former teammate of Kaepernick's, took offense after Jay-Z said "We're past kneeling."

Calling the rapper a "sell out," Reid said, "For one, when has Jay-Z ever taken a knee? ... Yes he's done a lot of great work; a lot of great social justice work. But for you to get paid to go into an NFL press conference to say that we're past kneeling? Again, asinine."

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Kenny Stills said: "I feel like Jay-Z really discredited Colin and myself and the work that's being done in our communities."

And businessman Dame Dash, who founded Rocafella Records with Jay-Z in 1995, said in an interview, "Everybody knows Jay ain't shit."

The NFL is now walking back reports that Beyonce's husband will become part owner of a NFL franchise. According to CBS News, there are no plans in place for Jigga to become an NFL owner.

The NFL assumed Jay-Z's influence within the Black community would entice more Black people to buy tickets to games or tune into football coverage on television. But they were wrong.

The NFL's much-hyped deal with the former drug dealer has turned into a PR nightmare for the league.

    If he had said he would do it ONLY if they gave Kap a job I'd say he had good intentions. He didn't so what the fawk did he expect? Le sigh. https://media2.giphy.com/media/26AHpY2EgchRJTwUU/giphy.gif

  • Judi Jupiter

    Father of 5??? Lol

  • Appplesauce

    That picture of Jay and Goddell speaks volumes.

    Jay: “ I’s a good negro boss”.
    Goddell: “Yes Jay you are, keep me informed on the field negros. They can get out of line sometimes”.

    With that being said I would hope his intentions are good. But he is a former crack dealer and only he knows what happened to Cathy White. Jay is an opportunist at heart by any means necessary so I don’t know why folks are so surprised.

    Morning Sandy! ... and Jay-Z has always been a wishy washy opportunistic camel... I am surprised he backed out, he only cares about getting a purse

    I think he is 50 if I'm not mistaken

    He was never going to be a owner so it's nothing to walk back smh

  • The Art

    Exactly!

  • KcoolMuziq
  • Nina Ross

    This backlash is what he deserves

  • The Art

    He didn't back out, it was never an option as it was a direct conflict of interest with his steak in Roc Nation. He'd have to choose one or the other.

  • 100milesperhour

    What would be the conflict? Serious question.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Since Roc Nation represents athletes, he'd be an owner and an agent at the same time.

  • 100milesperhour

  • MsPam

    Ms. Sandra, it would of been nice to tell us when Dame talks about Jay Z. Nobody has time to watch the whole video.

  • Kayke

    Elaborate because you’re making no sense.... where is the conflict?

  • Look@m3
  • iWasteTime

    So what is next.
    What is Eric and Collin's next step?
    3 years ago they took a knee. Collin got a settlement and a Nike endorsement and Eric still plays in the same league he knelt against.
    Black men are still entering the league and playing so again what is next ?!

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Yeah, he kinda brought this on himself. Any "deal" that didn't include Kaepernick (or at least ensure that he got a shot to play in the league again) was always going to be suspect. You'd think JayZ would have known that.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    You cant be an owner of a team, and also an owner of the agency that's representing an athlete who's trying to negotiate with that team. Definite conflict of interest.

  • Kayke

    Kap took a settlement, he quit on himself. Kneeling does nothing when you get up off your knees and go catch their ball and cash their paycheck. Unless we create our own league, the only other option is to infiltrate theirs in positions other than player.

  • Seldomseen

    Cuz you know Dame is long winded

    1) “undermining the work done by NFL free agent Colin Kaepernick”

    What “work?” I honestly don’t know what Kaepernick accomplished except for getting paid by Nike for his unfocused grandstanding. To this day he and his mindless followers can’t articulate how refusing to stand for the flag at a football game furthered any cause.

    2) I don’t know any Blacks boycotting the NFL because some wannabe “woke” mixed-race football player raised by white folks decided to go militant. On the other hand I do know of people who stopped going when the NFL basically sanctioned all the inane kneeling. The NFL needs to worry about them. Same with Nike and discontinuing those flag shoes because Kaepernick told them Blacks would be offended. If they’re depending on that one guy to represent all Blacks, they are clueless.

    3) The NFL was dumb for extending that commissioner’s contract. His lack of leadership is what allowed this stupid issue to go haywire. Notice the NBA and MLB didn’t have this issue. That’s because their commissioners told the players point blank: “You will stand for the flag, else you can go elsewhere. Do your protest thing on your own time and your own dime.” Period. Not that hard.

    4) Jay-Z considers himself a business. Everything he does should be seen through that lens. I do not know why anyone would look to him for some kind of grand moral leadership. That is not his lane. He may pretend otherwise for PR purposes, but no one should be surprised that his actions stem with one main goal in mind—money. Once you accept that, you can just accept his talent for what it is, hope he produces good halftime shows, and leave the moral leadership for others who actually give a damn. Jmo

  • goat

    Im confused and tired. We will never get what we're looking for, because we don't have a real clue about what we need/want. I guess we'll just keep protesting, marching, and kneeling until we figure it out.

  • The Art

    Jay-Z's ownership (even if minor) of an NFL team and Roc Nation’s business ties to the NFL could be deemed an unfair advantage against other agents and players. So Jay would have to sell his stake in Roc Nation before acquiring ownership of a team.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™
  • TamG

    The NFL didn’t do anything to Kaepernick. I don’t know why Blacks want to take on his personal frustration as some kind of burden for the Black community. His protest was unfocused anyway. If he wanted to do something about police brutality, he should have been appealing to political leaders, including the former President who was in office when a lot of the incidents with police occurred.

  • TheOwley

    This is what happens when you put these false idols above all and rely on them to make decisions for you. Kaepernick, JayZ, etc. should not be idols. Use your own head.

    Now essentially no black person except players and coaches can do deals with the NFL all because of Kaepernick and JayZ. This is weak. Real weak.

    Jay Z loves the idea of people believing that he’s this big business man but in reality Jay Z don’t own much of anything. His percentages be embarrassingly low. Look at the mess he’s in with Tidal. He’s under investigation for faking Beyonce and Kanye’s streaming numbers. He’s a hustling snitching crook and those white elites don’t trust him because he’s just like them. And he can be bought easily. They see that. If they didn’t allow Bill Cosby too own anything, they really not going to let a drug dealer be on their level. He’s a slave to the money. He can’t retire because he’s neck deep in contracts. He’ll be 70 and still having to perform.

  • Toppsey Krets

    I said this yesterday that Jays camp leaked fake rumors that he would be team owner to TMZ for damage control.Jay and Bey religiously have done this their whole careers. Alot of comments on blogs were saying Jay had a master plan to rehire Colin. I believe those comments were strategically placed by Jays camp as well.

    This entire press conference and public relations roll out is Tidal all over again.

    Amateurish and embarrassing and we are talking about million dollar deals and hundreds of milllions to BILLIONS in public relations value for the league. I can ASSURE you the league is rethinking this whole deal and the Executive Committee is regretting getting into business with Jay Z.

    This was worth a ton of money to Jays Bosses at LIVE NATION in super bowl advertising revenue, sponsorships,and the virtual control of one the worlds biggest entertainment platforms.

    For Jay this should be a lesson for a life time. There is a Huge difference between (Pretending) CREATING THE IMAGE of being a Billionaire and actually being able to make real Billionaire moves.

    I understand the dollar amount which has never been released by the way (strategically) would be hard to walk away from. But your legacy and your respect should have no NO PRICE.

    Tone down the arrogance and form better business partners in OUR COMMUNITY to make deals with.

    Id like to see a photo of Jay standing with a collective of Black Billionaires making announcements about black business objectives that can truly shape our community instead of a room full of white guys pandering for our dollars.

    Smoke and mirrors. 80 percent of his wealth is in stocks, he don't have the cash . Him and Beyonce took out a 56 mil dollar mortgage on the 88 mil house they bought in Cali last year . A high end real estate agent said that was the biggest mortgage ever taking out on a home in Cali. He said normally someone who has the money they claim to have, would have purchased the house outright. Not to mention they were outbid on 2 other homes before buying this one. The reality is that it's some nfl players who have more cash than Jay Z. Russell Wilson, Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees to name a few.

    My thing is dont be fake dont be offensive either, if youre not down with kaep dont be but if you are be it. Anyone who is supposedly team kaep but still involved with the nfl is a sell out too. It just so happen that jayz was loud in front of us and behind the scene with his fake support, telling folks not to perform and sheit only for him to now be in the front with the ennemy, its lame and there is no amount if what about-ism that can explain it

  • Bree

    That's sad if he doesn't claim or acknowledge them.

  • Bree

    Yes! She is the Queen of it!

  • JENNYJONES1

    EVERYONE NEEDS TO PUT KAP IN THE SAME BOAT WITH JAY B/C HE SOLD HIS SILENCE AND ANY BARGAINING LEVERAGE HE HAD WHEN HE SIGNED HIS SETTLEMENT DEAL WITH THE NFL. HE TOOK THE MONEY AND NOW IT'S EVERYONE ELSE'S JOB TO DO HIS JOB BIDDING FOR HIM. HE WAS AT THE SAME TABLE WITH THE SAME VULTURES THAT JAY Z WAS AT AND DIDN'T WRITE HIM A JOB AND SOME MONEY/PROGRAMS FOR BLACK INJUSTICE INTO THE DEAL BUT NOW THAT'S ALL JAY Z'S FAULT. BEY-0TCH PLEASE!!!!.........JENNY JONES!!

  • Kimberly

    so jay is worth 1 billion he isnt trying to shut anyone up and again its his money and can do what he wants black ppl sit around complaining trying to tell other black ppl what they should be doing when they are doing nothing to change anything nothing but commenting on ig and twitter dont even know what jay got up is sleeve but ready to "cancel" him like they been working hard to change anything. Furthermore, i dont see nfl players quitting but expect jay to turn down a deal

  • Bree

    That's crazy. He should just take the test and if the kid is his, provide financial support and find a way to get to know him.

  • Kimberly

    first of im not angry by any means secondly she can say whatever but the FACT remains he has 3 kids

  • Reenaface

    I keep hearing the same thing about Kylie Jenner.

  • onelove

    YUP!! we have other stuff to spend our lilttle money on...

  • currvalicious

    I think JayZ was intimidated by Beyonce's father from the very beginning. I think he drive a wedge between the two. He wanted to be totally in control of the business that is Beyonce. And that wouldn't happen w/Matthew around. Also, Matthew didn't help his cause by cheating on Tina. But I believe even before then, he was angling to oust Matthew from the picture. Remember he grew up w/o a father, so Matthew was a no go.

  • Bree

    Jay is being paid to shut the masses up. They hired him to produce the entertainment for the NFL, why? They look to him as an influential savior. But he has done nothing for me so I care less about his deal. I just hope that with this platform, light is shed in a dark place. Obviously, they thought enough to choose Jay out of all the prominent black leaders in the US. I'm not mad at Jay. He told us he is a business! Enough said.

  • Starburst

    My question is was Damon Dash trying to wife up Beyonce? Damon said every time he tried to talk with a girl Jay-Z would say "don't talk to her" and then he'll go and marry or wife her. So that leads me to believe Damon was trying to wife Beyonce. Listen to Damon on the TMZ website.

  • currvalicious

    And when Solange had him hemmed up in that elevator.

  • Toppsey Krets

    At the Billion Dollar level, you know who is moving in specific strategic ways. Those true Billionaires see right through Jay as an illusionist, something like the Great and all Powerful Wizard of OZ ....that is until you pull back the curtain. Forbes is Not respected or even read at that level its known as a glossy Celeb Rag.

    My point was you can see by Jays actions and who he surrounds him self with that he is not what he pretends to be and is comfortable pretending in the celeb world.

    Jay and Bey are like parable of the Emperor with no cloths on. Its shame that so many people look to them as the great black hope as you said

  • Just Me

    Finally ppl see JIGGA BOO BOO FOR WHAT HE IS! He is no shrewd businessman he was just getting over on his black friends making ppl think he was smart! He has been exposed now. I hope ppl continue to keep this same energy against this Joe Camel looking clown!

    My guess is Bey won't let him.

  • Reenaface

    It's about time that he acknowledged his age after years of lying about being 39 yrs old. He and J Lo were born in the late 60's and her ass just turned 50 last month. The both of them are only a few years older than Diddy and Mariah who were born in the early 70s.

  • Reenaface

    It's sad that artists like Patti, and Gladys who are well in their 70s have to keep performing to keep the lights on. The music industry is a cold one.

  • Eric B

    I will list some bulleted items and then pose some questions for all to consider.
    *Colin had been taking a knee before it was on the news
    *Colin had no issues with the NFL while playing
    *Colin's issue was with police brutality
    *Colin used his NFL platform to protest this issue
    *NFL is like we ain't got nothing to do with this issue; you're hurting our bottom line; we are a business
    *NFL says chill while you're at work; after work "do you"
    *Colin is like naw, Imma keep doing it.
    *In the meantime, the original issue is distorted; it's now hating the flag hating military personnel, needing black owners, etc.
    *NFL says you're hurting us and essentially bans Colin
    *Colin sues NFL for collusion
    *For reasons unknown to me, he agrees to a settlement
    *Despite his allegations against the NFL, Colin is still willing to play in the NFL
    Questions:
    *Why did Colin agree to a settlement and not see his lawsuit to the end?
    *Why hasn't Colin said anything publicly about Jay Z?
    *Could it be that in his settlement with the NFL he agreed to remain silent on all issues related to the NFL?
    *Why does Colin still desire to play for a league he says banned him for kneeling but chose to accept a settlement versus letting the case play out?
    *Why has the narrative changed from police brutality to Colin playing in the NFL again?

  • Karen Brady

    they really not going to let a drug dealer be on their level. THIS.

  • Reenaface

    If he wanted to do something about police brutality, he should have been appealing to political leaders, including the former President who was in office when a lot of the incidents with police occurred.

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

  • KarmaBackAround

    Second that! He always been real o.g!

  • ALLMINE?

    How u know who he reached out to.

  • KarmaBackAround

    But dame DID discover cam ..like he say jay aint shit cause he always wanna be FIRST to do something..

  • ALLMINE?

    Why black folks act all innocent when shit like this happens? Now we're all "RIGHTEOUS" and never did nobody wrong. like jay z aint group up in a project building with piss filled hallways. Goodam. Aint nobody perfect.

    she was stupid for letting that cheating mess go public. i would never let the world know my man cheated on me especially if i've been singing feminist crap my whole career. bey's work ethic is admirable, but that move right there, not smart.

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    Revisit the Aaliyah situation and how she ended up with Dame. I posted about this a couple of days ago. Dame wasn't allowed around Bey because of how shyt went down with Aaliyah. They were all friends even Aaliyah and Bey

  • Reenaface

    I'm no business head but from what I read, she took over Colour Pop Cosmetics and marked her cosmetics by 3x the amount.
    But to think that the media keeps running the narrative of her being a billionaire.

  • https://nylapoprush.com/home twitch.tv/NylaPop

    "Why hasn't Colin said anything publicly about Jay Z?"
    He did. How did you miss it?

    Could it be that in his settlement with the NFL he agreed to remain silent on all issues related to the NFL?
    Is that a rhetorical question? You know gag orders are standard in settlements, right?

    "Why does Colin still desire to play for a league he says banned him for kneeling but chose to accept a settlement versus letting the case play out?"
    If you got fired and your job offered you a severage package, would you not take it?
    If the package was more than what you'd win after legal fees, missing other work opportunities for court, and giving your attorney 1/3, would you not take it?
    Did you not write above his issue wasn't his employer but police brutality?
    Have you never wanted to go back to a job you love after being wrongfully terminated? This is not a rare phenomenon.

    "Why has the narrative changed from police brutality to Colin playing in the NFL again?"
    ... You really don't know the answer to that? ?

  • ………

    The aging rap mogul ?????

  • Eric B

    I did not see where Colin directly commented on the Jay Z deal with the NFL. If you have a site you can point me to, I will gladly check it out. I did see where he supported comments Eric Reid made. To me, that's not commenting on it. I agree in most NDA, you are not able to comment on the case. I do wonder if part of the NDA was to remain silent on all issues involving the NFL, not just his case. I would not want to work for a company or business that I view as racist, biased, discriminatory, etc. If I agree to a settlement, I personally would not want to go work for that same company or business again. That's just me though. I don't know why the narrative has changed other than we as black people have focused on Colin being back in the NFL. I'm interested to know your view as to why it has changed.

  • Bree

    She probably would have. Jay Z wasn't Beyonce's first choice, and vice versa.

  • JazzyBossyJen
  • Dun Dilly

    I hope that isn't true. This was before her. The guy does look like Jay, but so does so many other people. I think we all have a twin. I use to get picked on just because people thought I was my two of my cousins. My family genes are strong.

    But I read some place about a Federal Law that has already been signed where gun manufactors have limited number of years to organize and get set up to implement new technology that would have Biometrics worked into the guns handle so only the original owner could use them.

    Lol now that you cant convince us that this move was somehow in favor of black people, you’re using the we cant have anything card. What did jayz figure out that is so treat and we’re not letting him be? Ill wait.

  • Dontgetdraggedputa??

    Dame is suave and beyonce was pretty gorgeous in her hey days, i wouldnt be shocked if dame was plotting on her but didnt make the move since she was supposedly 15 at the time... jayz loves to tell how he saw her at a party and just knew, dame was the one at that party with him. So maybe. I know they had hella beef over rachel roy too

  • Toppsey Krets

  • Dontgetdraggedputa??

    So did i. Actually another time she called on tv to stop a girl from getting surgery to look like her (seemed staged) and the girl was 23 at the time when beylala was supposedly 17 but she slipped up and said we’re the same age while talking to ole girl.

    I think they settled out of court for back child support ?

  • Bree

    Wow! I hope he is actually in this guy's life. And if he paid back child support, it means the child is his. Sad situation all around.

  • speakinmymind

    Not a single fact. Where's the receipts that he was paid to shut the masses up? Or does it just sound provocative and 'deep'?

  • speakinmymind

    But if it's PUBLIC knowledge and all over the world wide web, how is he burying anything?

    #nocriticalthinkingskills

  • Bree

    He is being paid. Again Jay is a business. Of all the people they could call on, they chose Jay. He accepted. That speaks volumes. Jay isn't a savior and that's probably how people see him. I don't, but I get it.

  • EyeEmJai

    I appreciate it. Truly, I didn't feel like typing a response to explain what should have been the obvious lol.

    Everything you said supports why you asked the inquiries initially. Also, I agree that I wouldn't desire nor try to work with an organization that I felt was racist, I had to file a grievance, AND I won a settlement against. Kap, and others who don't see or understand this, get a side eye from me.

  • Andrea Williams

    Hell, you don't hear much from Brian McKnight anymore, at least I don't. I was through with him when he went all vulgar on me. I had not listened to him since. So the Brian McFight thing? Has he been fighting and I missed it since I cut him loose? Do tell.

  • Md

    Let's clear something up, It is FACTUAL that Beyonce outraged MANY, MANY Leo's, their wives, friends, family members, haters, racists and tax payers with her formation video. They (Leo's) and some of the public even felt that they shouldn't have to work security for her if her implication of them were theyre racist that don't care about black lives. (GOOGLE THE OUTRAGE)

    That video was released on 2/6/16; the next day 2/7/16 she performed the song at the Superbowl which incised more hatred towards her and her political views being a musician.

    Fast forward to 8/16 when Colin sat down during their first preseason game in protest and in their 2nd one he bowed a knee. If the Carter's jumped on the bandwagon of publicly bringing awareness of police brutality; is wasn't AFTER him. Call them hypocrites all day long but Colin brought public awareness of police brutality AFTER them!!

  • Md

    This month is August, he just reminded the world of his 3rd year anniversary of him protesting against policy brutality this week but her video that showed police officers with their guns drawn on black people for nothing came out 3 years ago this PAST March!!!
