Music pioneer Jermaine "JD" Dupree maintains it 100. The hip-hop veteran took a step forward to clear the air of reports, claiming the rap icon JAY-Z ] told him not to partner with the NFL.
In a new interview, JD said while he was talking to JAY about his earlier work with the NFL during Super Bowl celebrations, he didn't put him in the corner of Young Hov.

Because everyone, as I said, even when I was doing my press, I had to keep repeating the fact, 'Boy, I don't do Super Bowl, I make plays at Centennial Olympic Park.'

In a recent interview, rap star Cardy B seems optimistic about what JAY will eventually do with his professional football league.
" I think he can change. I don't think he went [in] on an NFL deal without an agreement – I feel like he went in there like, 'Well, if you want to work with everybody, you have to bring my people there . "… I feel like JAY-Z can bring back Colin Kaepernick. I feel like that. I feel like he has this power … I feel like JAY-Z can do it. "(TMZ)
