Jay Z has partnered with the NFL, which has set Black Twitter on fire! According to reports, not only will Jay Z be spearheading a social justice initiative with the NFL, but he’ll also be becoming a minority owner in an NFL team as well – which has caused Colin Kaepernick himself to throw Jay Z a little shade.
According to multiple sources Jay Z will soon become a part owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers. Jay Z will allegedly be buying approximately 5% ownership in the Pittsburgh Steelers according to reports. And, Jay Z is paying somewhere between $100 and $200M for the interest in the team.
The team owners currently consist of 18 people, including 5 members of the Rooney Familly who own a majority of the team.
Jay Z has been receiving a lot of heat for even working with the NFL on their social justice program, let alone buying part of a team. Especially since he made the comment that it’s time to move past kneeling…
What Cardi B and Vic Mensa think sounds idealistic to me. And in a perfect world maybe Jay Z would be able to get Colin Kaepernick his job back. But in my personal opinion, first of all, I doubt Colin wants to work for the NFL again after how they treated him. And secondly, I don’t think a 5% ownership stake is going to allow Jay Z to make hiring decisions, especially if it’s a controversial person like Colin Kaepernick.
