Jay-Z’s Roc Nation Sports formed a partnership with the NFL on entertainment and social justice matters that was announced on Tuesday. Jay-Z will help advise the NFL on music selections for some of the league’s events and work with the league on its Inspire Change initiative.

“With its global reach, the National Football League has the platform and opportunity to inspire change across the country,” Jay-Z said in a statement. “Roc Nation has shown that entertainment and enacting change are not mutually exclusive ideas — instead, we unify them. This partnership is an opportunity to strengthen the fabric of communities across America.”

NFL enlists Jay-Z and Roc Nation to help rehab its battered image The NFL needed to make sure it could keep booking hip-hop and R&B stars — many of them still miffed over Colin Kaepernick’s continued football unemployment — to perform at Super Bowl halftime shows, so it hired Jay-Z to help solve the problem. Roc Nation Sports, the powerful agency founded by the legendary rapper will become the league’s “live music entertainment strategist” this season in a deal leaked to The New York Times Tuesday and formally announced Wednesday.

Reid does not care for the partnership and said so on Twitter later that night. He stated that Colin Kaepernick is not part of this partnership.

Reid started kneeling alongside Kaepernick when the two were teammates on the San Francisco 49ers in 2016. Kaepernick has not played since that season. Reid went unsigned during the offseason prior to the 2018 season before the Carolina Panthers signed him in September that year. He joined Kaepernick in a collusion lawsuit against the league.

Kaepernick says Jay-Z didn't speak to him ahead of partnership with NFL On Tuesday, the NFL formed a social justice partnership with Roc Nation, an agency founded by rap mogul Jay-Z. The attorney for former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick said Jay-Z did not speak to him prior to partnering with the NFL, according to TMZ Sports. Jay-Z and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell spoke to about 30 media members at a meeting at Roc Nation's New York offices on Wednesday. The two were asked about what their working relationship means for the national anthem protests. "I think that we forget that Colin's whole thing was to bring attention to social injustice, so in that case, this is a success - this is the next thing," Jay-Z said.

CNN host Chris Cuomo went viral on Monday night after a video of him in a heated exchange with another man over the word “Fredo” circulated online. The video, said to have been sent to “THAT’S THE POINT with Brandon,” shows Cuomo threatening a man who called him “Fredo.”

Reid now has a job, proving that he isn’t being blackballed. The public would love to know whether there was a directive throughout the league telling owners to avoid signing Kaepernick, but we may never know because Kaep and Reid took settlements from the league in exchange for their silence.
