Rapper Vic Mensa believes Jay-Z is still looking out for Colin Kaepernick — and will make sure the QB gets HIRED when Hov becomes an NFL owner.
“I would be surprised if Kaepernick doesn’t get a job with Hov being in the NFL,” Mensa told us on the way out of Nice Guy in Hollywood.
“We know the NFL is a slave game, so to have a black man in there … especially a black man with a socially conscious responsibility, cause i know that’s how Hov feels, man … I believe that Kap gonna get that job and I believe that Hov’s intentions are in the right place.”
TMZ Sports broke the story … Jay-Z will have a “significant ownership interest” in an NFL team — a plan that will all come together in the “very near future.”
Some people have been attacking Jay — claiming he’s betraying Colin Kaepernick and sold out the black community to work with the NFL.
In fact, Kaep’s good friend Eric Reid has been extremely critical of Jay — calling the ownership move “despicable” and accusing Jay of putting money over the community.
Mensa tells us he still has tremendous respect for Kaepernick and the work he’s done — but says the community should get behind Jay buying an NFL team because ultimately it’s a good thing for black people.
Mensa says “sh*t’s gotta change” in the NFL … and Jay’s the guy to make it happen.
