Diddy has come to the defense of Jay-Z over his controversial NFL deal.

Jay-Z has come under fire after he was accused of betraying former NFL quarterback, Colin Kaepernick, by teaming up with the organization that blacklisted him.

"Hov is one of the greatest to ever do it, he has been there more than anybody from the hip hop culture, including me. He always has been so selfless and fights for other people. We as a people can not be divided and conquered at this time!! ," Diddy began.

"I'm so proud of @kaepernick7 and the attention he was able to bring and the efforts he continues to make. I'll continue to support him in every way possible," he continued.

"I'm also proud of my brother JAY Z for showing how it should be done! It's time to play chess not checkers, I believe he is going to do some incredible things. ⁣

Diddy continued that the deal is bigger than the NFL - and that action is needed. 

Does Jay have something bigger in mind?
