Jay-Z hasn’t had a ton of renowned faces come to his corner in the wake of his controversial NFL partnership — but he just got a important vote of self-confidence … from one particular DJ Khaled.
We ran into Khaled Sunday in NYC, exactly where he was signing autographs and posing with fans — and when we asked if he was up for some queries … he was rapid to note that he only wanted to speak about constructive points, seeing how his son, Asahd, and wife have been there.
Appears DJK knew have been this was going, mainly because our photog asks if he’s down to speak football — clearly, we want his take on the Colin Kaepernick beef. At initially, Khaled says no, but he lastly bites … and we ask if he’s talked to Jay’s about which NFL group he could possibly wanna personal.
Khaled says he does not have a clue which squad could possibly be in the stars for Jay, but he sings his praises right here with us. Verify it out … it is fairly intriguing.
TMZ broke the story … Jay-Z is set to come up on a “substantial ownership interest” in an NFL group fairly quickly right here, which just so takes place to coincide with this newfound embrace of the league … in spite of public stances he took against them earlier this year.
As we’ve reported … a ton of individuals in Kap’s corner have blasted Jigga for the seemingly adjust of heart, and even Colin himself appeared to take a jab at the rapper just this weekend.
That mentioned, Khaled’s clearly on group Jay, telling us the guy has carried out and continues to do a lot for individuals in his neighborhood — and he suggests this NFL news is just a lot more of that from Hov. Retain in thoughts, Khaled and Jay are tight — they’ve carried out tons of music with each other.
We also ask if he’d ever take into account snatching up a group himself. Watch … he ain’t saying no.
