Jay Z Denies Turning Down Super Bowl Half Time Show for Colin Kaepernick


Two years ago Jay Z was alleged to have turned down the chance to perform at the Super Bowl halftime show in solidarity with exiled player Colin Kaepernick, in rumors fueled by Jay himself after he began wearing Colin's jersey and dedicating 'The Story of O.J.' to Colin during performances on the 444 Tour [click here and here if you missed that].

Turns out Jay's reason for turning down the Super Bowl had nothing to do with Kap...

This week Jay Z sat down with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to discuss his new partnership with the league and Jay admitted the real reason he turned down the offer was because he didn't like the selection process.

Jay told Goodell
“I didn’t like the process. I think the process of selection was fractured. Take four of us and everybody thinks they’re playing the Super Bowl. It’s almost like this interview process. So if I could pick one, three other people are upset. That’s not even good math. After three years nine people are upset and three people are going to play. I just think the process could’ve been more definite.”
Fun Fact: Colin Kaepernick sued the NFL and settled out of court after he accused team owners of conspiring to keep him out of the league after be began kneeling during the National Anthem to protest unpunished police brutality in the Black community [click here if you missed that].

He had no problem letting that narrative ride two years ago though, when he was trying to make it seem that he's so down and he cares so much about the people. Fckin Liar.

Travis performed and no one gives a fuck, so don't look at Jay sideways for getting money. Plus, I'm STILL waiting for Kap to say what HE THINKS is the right move. He's constantly criticizing people through Nessa regarding the NFL but never says what he wants. Is it about HIM and his contract that he's not going to get? Or is it bigger than him and if so, take the lead on what to do before the season starts!? I bet he doesn't say not one thing.

Well said! And you told nothing but the truth. Jay is a fraudulent manipulator.

@12:20 What? How do you know the words that come out of his girlfriend's mouth are his? Why are people so invested in his personal decision to protest the national anthem the way he did/does? Why would him wanting to continue to play pro ball (if that's the case) bother you? It's his protest, his career, his shit. Why niggas always wanna dictate what other people do with their lives?

Colin is a p*ssy. Say what you feel and stop hiding behind your girlfriend. As for Jay, I am still on the fence. I wanna wait and see what he brings to the table before I criticize him.

Jay Z is a liar and he's not a good one. He didn't like the selection process? Really? I wonder how Jay "selects" the rappers he blocks from radio air play when he's threatening Clear Channel and nem? How does he "select" who's career he's going to end? GTFOHWTBS

Jay is only a hypocrite because other artists will attempt to do this or that and he will talk them out of it only to backdoor and do the same thing. Example, like Meek Mill wanted to talk to Trump about prison reform. No, Jay Z talked him out of it when Meek could have made an impact. How many folks have Jay talked out of any potential partnerships, performing or meeting this that or the other? Not really about a puppet, coon, etc. Jay Z is just a grimy nigga to me. He pumps this young folks up with his advice and always turns around and eventually does the same thing for the right price. He ain't shit.

When you have two years to make up a lie, make sure it's a good one.

Colin settled with the NFL earlier this year and hasn't been able to say shit since... JayZ is right it's time for a new movement. The moment Colin settled instead of airing the league out publicly his movement ended. I don't care what workout regime he has; he's been out of the league for three seasons there's no way to go back.

Yall some dumb asses! He sued the NFL owners and took the money, because they could have dragged it out for years as they have the money to do it. What is he supposed to expose that isn't already known?? He ain't your saviour and has his own life! Jay Z is backstabbing hypocrite scum!!
