The NFL is expanding its footprint in the music business, in a surprising way.
Via Jason Reid of ESPN.com, the league has hired Jay Z’s Roc Nation to “lead the league’s endeavors in music and entertainment.”
Roc Nation, which represents players like Todd Gurley and Saquon Barkley, will advise the NFL on the selection of the Super Bowl musical acts. The company also will be involved in the production and promotion of new music by the league.
And that’s where this gets intriguing from a business standpoint. The NFL is essentially partnering with Jay-Z to produce music, expanding the league’s footprint well beyond football.
It actually makes sense. With the biggest musical platform in the world coming between the second and third quarter of every annual NFL championship game, it’s one thing to squeeze the selected acts for a slice of the boost they experience. It’s quite another to own the acts themselves, and thus to get the whole damn pie.
Of course, that’s not how it’s being sold, even if that’s the long-term goal.
“With its global reach, the National Football League has the platform and opportunity to inspire change across the country,” Jay-Z said, via Reid. “Roc Nation has shown that entertainment and enacting change are not mutually exclusive ideas — instead, we unify them. This partnership is an opportunity to strengthen the fabric of communities across America.”

Judge me by the books I read and the people I associate with not by how I look 🤴🏿🐺🦈 where you come from is never a choice. But where you end up is. I had the blessing of realizing this early in life, I was always the odd ball out and the one doing shit his own way. Look at me now 🚀
It’s been a butterfly 🦋 effect every since I picked up a book and started reading 📚 it all started with rich dad poor dad in college. I looked around at everyone from my professors, coaches, to friends. Everyone was an employee of being molded into one. I dropped out and never looked back. “FORMAL EDUCATION makes you a living.
