Calling that shite music is pushing it. No instruments or singing means it is a form entertainment, but certainly not music.

Reasonable Doubt is one of the best lyrical albums ever. He switched to more pop stuff later on, but I would put RD against any album for lyricism.

Later, he dominated popular rap too, so it's hard to argue he wasn't good there either.

On the actual story, this really isn't much. The NFL program was already going on, and partnering with company like Roc Nation isn't surprising. Who were they going to partner with, Taylor Swift?

Jay-Z was bought off by the white slave owners to keep the workers on the plantation. Nothing to see here move along.

Real social justice take someone willing to meet with people they disagree with in the highest office in the land and let them hear you out.

Trump has an open line and would sit down with any player. It’s up to them to make the commitment.

Until I see anything addressed about black on black killings and black single mothers raising kids than I don’t believe in their fight for social justice. Those 2 issues are the biggest problems the African American community face.

I’m talking about Jay Z being really good but a tad bit overrated imo.

I enjoy the hell out of Jay Z music.

"According to Andrew Beaton, Jay-Z has not spoken to former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick but said he 'absolutely brought this conversation alive'"



Jay-Z, in an interview, said he has not spoken to Colin Kaepernick but noted “he absolutely brought this conversation alive" and that he hopes the initiative would give Kaepernick "a platform where he can express himself and maybe it doesn’t have to take place on the field."



Back of the bus Colin as I collect my mansion check thanks to all your hard work.

Trump would absolutely meet with most any of these players and hear them out and work with them.

Can’t wait to listen to a purveyor of crack cocaine to tell me how to understand the social issues better. I’m about to be educated.

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

Nothing like a billionaire lecturing football fans on the plight of the under privileged. Plus, he gets to hitch Roc Nation to the NFL money train.
