Irv Gotti has also weighed in on Jay-Z's new partnership with the NFL, but according to the Tales creator, the NFL is just manipulating Jay.
“To sit there and watch Jay talk [at their recent, widely publicized meeting] while Roger Goodell is sitting there quiet, it almost looks like the NFL manufactured and manipulated Jay to be the front and face of the bulls–t, knowing Jay is so powerful that he can make people forget about [Kaepernick and others] kneeling," Irv reluctantly told Page Six.
Despite his feelings, Irv gave props to the NFL for the "brilliant move."
“If it was a masterminded plan, then you just used Hov for a masterminded plan and made him look like a pawn in this whole f–king thing.”
Social media has been divided over Jay's new move. While some have called him a sell-out, others think it's highly likely that Jay will hire Kaep for his own NFL team.
