RUSH: Jay-Z being hired by the NFL. So the first thing that he did, he threw Kaepernick under the bus. Audio sound bite one, yesterday, New York City, at Jay-Z’s Roc Nation entertainment company offices, he and the commissioner, Roger Goodell held a press conference to explain what Jay-Z is going to be doing here with the halftime show and presiding over that, basically being musical director and producer for the National Football League. So a reporter who remembered that Jay-Z was once in solidarity with Colin Kaepernick said, “Mr. Z, would you kneel or would you stand today?”

JAY-Z: I think we passed kneeling. You know, I think it’s time to go into actionable items. I think everyone knows what the issue is, and we’re done with that. I’m not minimizing that part of it, ’cause that has to happen. That’s a necessary part of the process. But now we all know what’s going on, what are we going to do, how are we going to stop? ‘Cause the kneeling was not about a job, it was about injustice.
