Jay-Z dedicated part of his performance Friday night to football player Colin Kaepernick.
Jay-Z headlined a concert in his native NY city for the first time in three years last night with a 90-minute set at the Meadow Music and Arts Festival at Citi Field.
"I want to dedicate this song to Colin Kaepernick tonight", said Jigga, according to ESPN.
Jay was performing his new hit, "The Story of O.J".
Kaepernick has drawn both criticism and praise for his decision not to stand for the national anthem during some NFL games a year ago. "I want to dedicate this song to anyone that was held back and you overcame". "Now is the time to recognize that through our voices we really can effect change", Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter wrote.
That perhaps is why Jay-Z chose to mention Kaepernick alongside Gregory.
