New York, NY – Funkmaster Flex has inserted himself into the controversy surrounding JAY-Z’s recent partnership with the National Football League.

According to a recent Instagram post, the longtime Hot 97 host spoke with Jermaine Dupri and confirmed Hov told the So So Def founder getting deeply involved with the NFL would be a bad look.

“I JUST GOT OFF THE PHONE WITH JERMAINE DUPRI,” he commented in all caps. “HE CONFIRMED THAT WHEN HE WAS WORKING WITH THE NFL LAST YEAR HE DID GET A CALL FROM JAYZ ASKING HIM.. ‘HOW DEEP ARE U IN WITH THE NFL?’ EXPRESSING…THAT MIGHT NOT BE A GOOD IDEA.”

This subject matter has been weighing on me for a sec… I’ve spoken to Jermaine, Fat Joe, Nessa, Pio and TT…. My opinion is probably not what the people I have relationships want to hear but it’s bothering me so I need to discuss… Colin has taken an incredible unselfish stand for bringing light to social injustice that will never be duplicated… and even though his settlement was under 10million for him and Eric (Which covered mostly lawyer fees) I’m not 1,000 percently ok that Colin excepted the deal because it feels that since the deal Colin hasn’t been as aggressive as he once was… I know I’ve been 1,000 percent better with Rocnation as of late so I hope I can be honest and continue our positive relationship… We are never past kneeling… the “fear of the Kneeling” is what pushed the NFL to get more aggressive with unlawful tactics (hence is why they settled with Colin) To dismiss his efforts in front of the NFL Commissioner (the one who spearheaded the Colin corruption was an extreme slap in the face!) Jayz In our world is our “Michael Jordan” decided by the people who respect/cherish his accomplishments. Watching that Commissioner’s body language and feeling his desperation to open the Season with the “STRONGEST AFRICAN AMERICAN POSSIBLE WITH CREDIBILITY” was obvious! If Jayz saw what we all saw in the press conference and feels working from the inside while being paid and receiving a “stake” in a team is the answer and can spearhead social justice from the inside he is our HERO for life!!!! BUT if he and the air personalities/social media influencers that Rocknation manages or wants to be managed by them have spun the “believe in Jayz… give him a chance” campaign to line pockets… this will be remembered and NOT swept under the rug in a few months! TRUST! Time will tell!#JustMyOpinion

Flex then went into detail about his opinions on the situation, pointing out Kaepernick hasn’t been as driven or committed to fighting racial injustice since he agreed to a settlement with the NFL.

“This subject matter has been weighing on me for a sec… I’ve spoken to Jermaine, Fat Joe, Nessa, Pio and TT,” he wrote in the caption. “My opinion is probably not what the people I have relationships want to hear but it’s bothering me so I need to discuss… Colin has taken an incredible unselfish stand for bringing light to social injustice that will never be duplicated.

“and even though his settlement was under 10million for him and Eric (Which covered mostly lawyer fees) I’m not 1,000 percent ok that Colin excepted the deal because it feels that since the deal Colin hasn’t been as aggressive as he once was.”

The veteran radio personality also made it clear he heard about Hov saying “we are passed kneeling” and suggested the Hip Hop billionaire’s motives are key to his alignment with the NFL.

“I know I’ve been 1,000 percent better with Roc Nation as of late so I hope I can be honest and continue our positive relationship,” he continues. “We are never past kneeling… the ‘fear of the Kneeling’ is what pushed the NFL to get more aggressive with unlawful tactics (hence is why they settled with Colin) To dismiss his efforts in front of the NFL Commissioner (the one who spearheaded the Colin corruption was an extreme slap in the face!) Jayz In our world is our ‘Michael Jordan’ decided by the people who respect/cherish his accomplishments.

“Watching that Commissioner’s body language and feeling his desperation to open the Season with the ‘STRONGEST AFRICAN AMERICAN POSSIBLE WITH CREDIBILITY’ was obvious!

Flex concludes, “BUT if he and the air personalities/social media influencers that Rocknation manages or wants to be managed by them have spun the ‘believe in Jayz… give him a chance’ campaign to line pockets… this will be remembered and NOT swept under the rug in a few months!

Hov and Roc Nation are expected to help with the NFL’s social justice campaigns and act as the league’s “live music entertainment strategist.”
