Cardi B has faith in JAY-Z. In a new interview with TMZ, the multi-platinum selling artist said she thinks Hov can make a change in the NFL and even get Colin Kaepernick back in the league.
“I feel like JAY-Z could bring back Colin Kaepernick,” she told TMZ. “I feel so. I feel like he has that power.”
Cardi shared her opinion on Hov’s influence after being asked about the Roc Nation boss’ recent partnership with the NFL, which has been under scrutiny since it was announced. Critics have taken issue with Kaepernick’s lack involvement in the deal and questioned JAY’s motives.
As part the agreement, Roc Nation will serve as the NFL’s “live music entertainment strategist.” JAY is also getting involved in the league’s social justice initiative Inspire Change and may reportedly become a co-owner an NFL team.
The partnership marked a dramatic change from JAY’s past rejections to working with the NFL as a public supporter Kaepernick. He reportedly encouraged other artists such as Travis Scott to not perform at the Super Bowl halftime show too.
Since becoming a free agent in 2017, Kap has been out the league. He’s widely believed to have been blackballed for kneeling during the playing the national anthem in protest racial injustice.
Earlier this year, he reached a settlement with the NFL after accusing its owners colluding to keep out him out the league.
