Rapper Freddie Gibbs has been the bluntest. On his Instagram stories he talked about the deal, saying:

I’m riding with Jay-Z, straight up. Fuck Colin Kaepernick. All y’all niggas marched for Colin Kaepernick and he took a settlement and aint tell y’all what he got or nothing. He settled. Let it go. Y’all hating on Jay-Z for tryna own something in the NFL. Y’all niggas some muthafuckin’ crabs.

TMZ caught up with Cardi B over the weekend and asked about Jay and the NFL. she said:

I feel like he didn’t [make] 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.
