Just last year Jay-Z said, “I said no to the Superbowl, you need me, I don’t need you. Every night we in the endzone, tell the NFL we in stadiums too.” And now people feel he may be contradicting himself.
Roc Nation will reportedly announce more details about the new partnership tomorrow but so far we know, Jay will serve as the league’s “live music entertainment strategist” and will also be a coproducer of the Super Bowl halftime show. Hold up. Anyone thinking what I’m thinking…
Jay Z gonna get Bey to perform @ the Super Bowl every year & all will be right with the world 😊

It seems now-a-days when most people think about Football instead of tailgates and SuperBowl parties, they think of Colin Kaepernick and taking a knee. Well hopefully now Jay will be able to change the narrative to something of inclusivity and compassion, because his new role will also include working with the NFL on it’s Inspire Change activism campaign, says The New York Times.
Now like I said, the people are really divided on this one. There are those who are just plain mad like Kim here…
#JayZ was a drug dealer… why does anyone respect him ?? He’s got no morals people !!!!!!! Stop putting these morons on a pedestal

Now now, hear me out on this one! We all know Jay is a man of the people, and that’s just something with can back with straight FACTS! What if his plan is to infiltrate from the inside and turn the league upside down. This could be a HUGE move. Remember y’all it’s chess not checkers! Now we just have to wait and see…
More details of the partnership will be announced at a press conference in NYC tomorrow.
