Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and his girlfriend Nessa Diab were ready to take on one of the biggest names in hip-hop culture. In 2019, Diab was less than happy with legendary rapper Jay-Z and comments regarding her boyfriend and his attempts to make changes. Kaepernick’s girlfriend shared her disgust following the surface of a video involving Jay-Z and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.

She took to her Instagram while captioning the post, “We’ll never turn our backs on @kaepernick7 because your idols decided to work with the same organization that actively keeps Colin out of work… But what’s disgusting and disappointing is that Jay-Z let them use him. Whether Jay-Z knew it or not (I don’t doubt his intelligence, so I think he did), he helped the NFL bury who he thinks is an iconic figure, Colin Kaepernick.

Diab also added that the rapper didn’t see the contradiction in his comments regarding Kaepernick and his absence from the NFL. She believed that keeping Kaepernick out of a job was not helpful in the interests of the NFL and Jay-Z. The warmth of his social media posts seems to have prompted the rap icon to react.

The legendary rapper finally responded to Diab’s comments during a meeting. He met with members of the media and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to share his thoughts. The Grammy Award-winning artist believes the call for change was not for Kaepernick’s job status.

But it was about things outside the four corners of the football pitch. He believes the world has gone from the kneeling part. Jay-Z called for a broadening of perspectives on issues that need attention.
