Black entertainment was boycotting The Super Bowl in 2019 because the NFL refused to accept nor make right Colin Kaepernick’s right to protest peacefully that got him black balled from the NFL (whether they still want to admit that or not).

But before the awakening Jay-Z caught a lot of flack for teaming up with the NFL, but it seems for everyone involved his involvement was … worth it, And you deserve it…you earned it, yeah ♫
