NFL Taps Jay-Z for Social-Justice Issues—and Entertainment Offerings
WSJ LINK to FULL ARTICLE


quote:

The NFL has struck a broad alliance with Jay-Z in which the rapper will both help the league with one of its thorniest problems—smoothing out continuing tensions with players over social-justice issues—and expand the NFL’s entertainment offerings, including the Super Bowl halftime show and other creative projects.

The NFL and Roc Nation, the entertainment company founded by Jay-Z, have launched a partnership in which Jay Z will take a prominent role in a social-justice program the league launched last year at a time when it was still roiled by controversy over player protests during the national anthem started by Colin Kaepernick.

The parties said Roc Nation will also expand and play an integral role in the NFL’s entertainment operations—not just the halftime show, but also the production and distribution of other new football-related content together on streaming services. That could include original music, in addition to podcasts for players to voice their opinions on social and cultural issues that are important to them. Front Office Sport first reported an NFL-Roc Nation partnership.

They should tap him to put Watch the Throne back on Spotify and take it off that shitty knock-off that he owns.

This is just the NFL trying to shield themselves from other social justice bull shite.


It's one of many examples how the leftist activists bully people into their cause out of fear of backlash instead of an honest mutually beneficial agreement.

The majority of you have openly said that you don't pay attention to the SB halftime show and typically leave the room. So which one is it?

Jay-Z is an example of what is wrong with society in today's world, but lets give him a pulpit.

NFL are idiots, but I honestly don't care as I won't really be caring about their "social justice" campaign. I'll change the channel if that garbage comes on.

I'm sure JayZ won't be profiting off of these righteous endeavours.

Social justice brought to you by someone whose music promotes many of the issues within the minority communities. Clown world. Honk honk.

Jay-Z is a 21st century Al Sharpton. You have to kneel before him and Queen Beyonce to gain respect from certain segments of society (not going to limit this to the black community).

I'm sure this doesn't need to be mentioned. But the blueprint isn't exactly going to be appreciated on TD.com.

Gotta remember that JayZ is promoting a lot of the problems in the inner city.
