Members of the hip-hop community continue to express their thoughts regarding JAY-Z's partnership with the NFL. As for Vic Mensa, he supports the Brooklyn rapper's decision.

While catching up with TMZ recently, Mensa explained that Hov will bring about positive changes. In his explanation, Mensa states that since Jay will not let his people down. Before wrapping up the conversation, Mensa stated that Jay might be able to recruit Colin Kaepernick to a NFL team.

"I would be surprised if Kaepernick doesn't get a job with Hov being in the NFL," Mensa said. "We know the NFL is a slave game, so to have a black man in there ... especially a black man with a socially conscious responsibility, cause i know that's how Hov feels, man ... I believe that Kap gonna get that job and I believe that Hov's intentions are in the right place."

Unsurprisingly, Vic Mensa isn't the only one who feels this way. Cardi B explained that Jay has a plan up his sleeve. "I think that he can make a change, you know what I'm saying?" Cardi said. "I feel like he didn't went on an NFL deal without an agreement. I feel like he went in there like, 'Alright, if you guys want me to work with y'all, y'all need to bring my people in here. Y'all need to do things my way.' I feel like he's gonna change it."

Back in February, the former San Franciso 49ers player reached a settlement deal with the NFL that remains confidential. While speaking on the matter, attorneys for the athletes and the NFL expressed their thoughts in a statement.

"For the past several months, counsel for Mr. Kaepernick and Mr. Reid have engaged in an ongoing dialogue with representatives of the NFL. As a result of those discussions, the parties have decided to resolve the pending grievances. The resolution of this matter is subject to a confidentiality agreement so there will be no further comment by any party," the statement reads.
