Word has it that Jay-Z has turned down the offer to play the Super Bowl. While plenty of big-name stars have stepped out for the Super Bowl halftime show, incluing jay’s own wife Beyonce, it seems that the Brooklyn rapper is not willing to join their ranks, but why?
Some say that Jay-Z is making a political stand against the NFL in support of Colin Kaepernick, who was called out after refusing to stand for the National Anthem in protest of the killing of black people by police.
As you may know, artists don’t get paid to perform at the high-profile show, but viewer exposure usually leads to a huge spike in sales for whoever played during half time. So it looks like Jay is letting his morals lead before his money.
