Freddie Gibbs has voiced his support for the Jay-Z deal with the NFL. The news of a partnership between the NFL and Jay-Z broke last week and drew divided opinion across the internet. Some people view the deal as a sign of change while others see it as a capitalist approach from Hov with others likening it to the work of Colin Kaepernick.
Gibbs Says F**k Kaepernick and supports Hov’s NFL partnership deal
One person who is not taking criticism of Jay-Z is Freddie Gibbs who took to Instagram to drum support for the deal. He, however, did that while he toddled on Colin Kaepernick. In the post, Gibbs says, “I’m riding with Jaz-Z, straight up. Fuck Colin Kaepernick. He took issue with people who stood with Colin Kaepernick and he took a settlement that they know nothing about. He told them to let it go and stop hating on Jay-Z. According to him, he is trying to own something in the NFL.

The team that Jay-Z will have ownership in has not yet been revealed.

As Gibbs was igniting the internet, a netizen asked him what his favorite album was for the year.
