While JAY-Z‘s latest venture with the NFL has fans equally divided, Cardi B has stated her support for the music mogul’s partnership with the league.
Saturday night, TMZ caught up with the “Money” chart-topper while in New York City. “I think that he could make a change, you know what I’m saying?” Cardi told the outlet, regarding Jay.
She continued, “I feel like he didn’t [go] on an NFL deal without an agreement. I feel like he went in there like, ‘All right, if you guys want me to work with y’all, y’all need to put my people in here. Y’all need to do things my way.’”
As previously reported, Jay has been enlisted by the NFL to serve as the league’s “live music entertainment strategist,” as well as to assist and contribute to its social activism campaign, Inspire Change. The NFL hopes that enlisting Jay will in part help them to be more sensitive to in the wake of the public dissent over its handling of national anthem protests, and Colin Kaepernick‘s related collusion suit against the NFL, which was settled confidentially in February. The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback hasn’t played with the league since 2016, following disputes over his choice to kneel during the national anthem in protest of racial inequality and police brutality in the United States.
Cardi added: “I feel like Jay-Z can bring back Colin Kaepernick. I feel like he has that power. I feel like JAY-Z can do it.”
