Killer Mike has been a vocal activist over the years, so it’s only natural that he share his thoughts on Jay-Z’s partnership with the NFL as their new live music entertainment strategist.

When asked about his thoughts on Jay-Z previously supporting Colin Kaepernick and now partnering with the NFL, he explained,

“Being a black American is a duality. … What we’re really talking about is sports plantations and what fuels them. JAY-Z has been a capitalist his entire career and a celebrated one because he’s one of us that made it out the streets and in the rooms and he did what he could when he should.”
