The partnership is with Hov's Roc Nation company.in which the rap mogul will be the league's "live music entertainment strategist". including working together on the league's Inspire Change activism campaign, according to The New York Times.

For years, Jay-Z was critical of the NFL's handling of peaceful protests from various players like Colin Kaepernick, who chose to kneel during the national anthem to bring attention to various forms of police brutality.

How that plays out on both the entertainment and social initiatives fronts figures to be newsworthy.
