Rap Mogul, Diddy, is throwing his support behind his friend and fellow rap mogul, Jay-Z in the midst of the criticisms that have followed the latter’s decision to sign a deal with the NFL despite his support for Colin Kaepernick.
Jay-Z, real name Shawn Corey Carter, and NFL commish Roger Goodell announced a partnership earlier this month where Roc Nation will head up music, entertainment and social justice efforts for the NFL.,
Jay-Z received a lot of criticism for this saying he turned his back on Colin Kaepernick after publicly supporting the QB in the past and the rap mogul explained that he’s trying to turn Colin’s kneeling protest into a tangible change for people affected by police brutality.
“Hov is one of the greatest to ever do it, he has been there more than anybody from the hip hop culture, including me,” Diddy said on social media.
“He always has been so selfless and fights for other people. We as a people can not be divided and conquered at this time!!”
As for Kap, Diddy said he’s proud of the QB — adding, “I’ll continue to support him in every way possible.”
Diddy says he believes Jay will do some incredible things in his partnership with the NFL — explaining, “It’s time to play chess not checkers.”
