All titles are important… I guess.
Roger Goodell has a brand new prize he can put on his hearth, for Jay-Z’s 2019 decision to betray Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid so he can enter into a deal with a The league has – and still is – throwing them into a job that will “advise (the federation) on the selection of artists for major NFL performances like the Super Bowl,” as well as “a dramatic change in inspiration” will “educate and develop the economy; police and community relations; and criminal justice reform,” came at a time when the fruits of all that backstabbing labor equated to something.
For the first time in history, the 2022 NFL Super Bowl Halftime Show – featuring Jay-Z’s friends Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, 50 Cent, Mary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamar – won an Emmy for Outstanding Magazine Special.
“It’s one of, if not the best Super Bowl halftime show ever,” director Hamish Hamilton told Billboard recently. “That [artist] line-ups changed the world – they changed the music, they changed the politics, they changed the way we dress, they had a seismic influence in music, culture and more, and none of them some of them have been on the Super Bowl bill before, and all of a sudden, they’re all on the same Super Bowl bill and by the way [near] Compton, where some of this begins, where Dre begins, this is literally his backyard. And, of course, you took the home team to the final. It was the LA Super Bowl hip-hop moment only once in a lifetime. It just has everything to complement it, from the very first shot of Dre in his studio in Compton. “
The show was a success, and it was amazing. But is it worth it?
If a trophy is all that the man is willing to enter into a deal with the NFL – for a fee that has yet to be made public – must show up after the infamous “we’ve moved on our knees” comments. leading to Goodell then saying “We’ve moved on (from Colin Kaepernick)”, after which the guy claiming to be “a business man” was duped.
Or, was this always what it…always was. A dude who likes money doing a deal that would make him more money under the guise of, “But, it’s gonna help Black people. Just trust me,” when that was never the case.
Over the last couple of weeks, Jay-Z has been facing criticism as people have started to realize that some of his ventures haven’t been “chess, not checkers,” as they originally assumed. They’re starting to see that he’s always been playing Monopoly. During a recent conversation on Twitter SpacesJay-Z, a man who has bragged and revealed about being the capitalist on most of the songs he’s ever done, has had a problem with being labeled a “capitalist”.
“All these lies that America has told us all our lives and then when we start to realize it, they try to lock us out of it,” he said. “They started inventing words like ‘capitalization’. We are called ‘n*ggers’ and ‘monkeys’ and sh*t. I don’t care what words you come up with. All of you must come with stronger words. “
Then he went on to say, according to Billboard, that no one should “be ashamed of succeeding in a place that has set up a system that kills us at the age of 21… It’s all locked us up. You guys have created a system that, you know, doesn’t include us. We said well. We went our alternate route. We created this music. We did our thing, you know, we hustled, we killed ourselves to get to this space. And, you know, now it’s like, you know, you know, ‘Eating the rich’, and, man, we’re not going to stop. “
This sounds exactly like a man who made a deal with the NFL because he might want to one day own an NFL team – unlike someone who wants to “inspire change” for the sake of racial justice and society.
As the 2022 NFL season begins on Thursday night, the reggaeton star J BALVIN will be at the head of the kick-off concert. Since Jay-Z’s been in these types of NFL music events have become more “ethnic”. But in the end, is it possible to better represent what we need, or even be asked for? And that’s the problem with all of this, as it feels like the only change inspired is “change” into Jay-Z’s pocket.
We want police brutality and racism to end. And all we got was better concerts and a more enjoyable halftime gig.
Thanks for nothing, Jay-Z. Enjoy your victory.
