Jay has been under fire for his partnership with the NFL and not everyone has been in support.Kaepernick’s girlfriend, radio personality Nessa, have especially been vocal in criticizing Jay Z. Carolina Panthers safety Eric Reid also displayed skepticism that Jay was doing something good by dealing with the NFL, even going as far as calling what the rapper is doing despicable.
TMZ caught up with Cardi on Saturday night (Aug. 17) outside New York City’s Bryant Park Hotel, where they asked for her opinion on the deal, which was announced earlier this week.
“I think that he could make a change, you know what I’m saying?” she said of Jay-Z.
“I feel like he didn’t [go] on an NFL deal without an agreement,” she continued. “I feel like he went in there like, ‘All right, if you guys want me to work with y’all, y’all need to put my people in here. Y’all need to do things my way.’ I feel like he’s gonna change it.”
Cardi added: “I feel like Jay-Z can bring back Colin Kaepernick. I feel so. I feel like he has that power. I feel like Jay-Z can do it.”
TMZ also briefly caught up with DJ Khaled and Khaled said. “He’s always showing love, and always uplifting the people, and always moving the culture forward. So, shout out to Jigga. Shout out to you know what I’m saying everything that he’s doing.”
