Freddie Gibbs Throws Support to Jay-Z, Calls Out Kaepernick

By Chad Weiser

Jay-Z has been catching a lot of flak for his dealings with the NFL. One person who thinks HOV is doing the right thing is rapper Freddie Gibbs.

Jay-Z caused a huge commotion when it was revealed he is teaming up with the NFL to become the league’s new “Live Music Entertainment Strategist.” Furthermore, it looks like the relationship will extend beyond just that title, as Jay-Z may acquire ownership in an NFL team.

Since the announcements were made, Jay-Z has received a lot of criticism, from people like Rihanna, Eric Reid and others who can't believe the music mogul would seemingly undermine Colin Kaepernick's work by aligning himself with the NFL.

Not everyone is trashing Jay-Z, in fact he just got full supporter in Freddie Gibs, and he is showing his support in a major way by dissing Kap.

In an Instagram story over the weekend, Gibbs revealed that he has Jay-Z’s back, and had some harsh words for Kaepernick,

"I'm riding with Jay-Z, straight up. F--k Colin Kaepernick," Gibbs said. "All y'all niggas marched for Colin Kaepernick and he took a settlement and ain't tell y'all what he got or nothing. He settled. Let it go. Y'all hating on Jay-Z for tryna own something in the NFL. Y'all niggas some muthaf---in' crabs."


Jay-Z spoke about his reasons for partnering with the league during a press conference, as ESPN’s Jason Reid reported, “J’s position is that he’s focused on trying to help as many people as he can and working on the system from within.

From his perspective, the protests were about shining a light on the problem and everyone now knows what the problem is. Now, what’s next?”
