Snoop Dizzle and Scrappy went to Instagram to co-sign the idea of Kaep joining the team.
This week, rap veteran Pete Rock co-signed a graphic Kaepernick t-shirt.
Last weekend, music mogul JAY-Z flexed his support for Kaepernick during a “Saturday Night Live” performance.
Saturday Night Live returned this weekend, and Jay Z was ready to own the moment. The rapper served as the musical guest and wasted no time in calling attention to the national anthem protests and Colin Kaepernick. Jay Z rocked a custom-made jersey that said ‘Colin K’ on the back, a clear message of support to the man who started the anthem protests that Donald Trump has trapped in his crosshairs. Trump’s comments about NFL players protesting incited mass unity among players last Sunday in locking arms or taking a knee during the national anthem. (Fansided)
