What made them think that he messes with them?
The 2017 NFL season just started a few weeks ago but, people are already speculating about who is going to perform at the 2018 Super Bowl. The Super Bowl is the part of the NFL season that even non-football fans look forward to do this makes sense. Jay-Z is a name that has been coming up recently and this makes sense as well because he has a very critically acclaimed album out. However, what doesn’t make sense is the NFL thinking that Jay-Z would do the half time show considering the climate surrounding the NFL and the content of 4:44.
Spokesman for NFL Brian McCarthy told ProFootball Talk that, “No decisions have been made on the performer(s) and we are not going to speculate on particular artists.” However, you can connect the dots and realize that it’s definitely not happening. From his support of Colin Kaepernick to naming a song “The Story Of O.J.“, Jay-Z has been in a different state of mind recently and everything that he has been doing has been promoting the upliftment of the black community and right now, the NFL isn’t really supporting that.

He isn’t the first artist that has reportedly turned down the halftime show in recent years and the ratings have been down so far in the NFL this season. Maybe the NFL has some things to worry about, maybe not. However, the NFL has definitely felt the effects of Colin Kaepernick not being in the NFL.
