Z Dedicates "The Story of OJ" to Colin Kaepernick

Z Dedicates

At a concert at Citi Field in NY on Friday night, Jay-Z took dedicated his song "The Story of O.J." to Colin Kaepernick and Dick Gregory, a comedian and civil rights activist who passed away in August.

"I want to dedicate this song to Colin Kaepernick tonight", Jay-Z said, before busting into the tune.

Jay-Z's performance, though full of energy and excitement, had some other serious tones. He also shouted out the late activist and comedian, Dick Gregory, who passed in August. I want to dedicate this song to Dick Gregory.

Kaepernick, as everyone knows by now, took a stance by kneeling during the National Anthem during last season, and since he's become a free agent and stayed a free agent, some high-profile people have come to his defense.

The Meadows Music and Arts Festival brought a hip hop heavy lineup to Citi Field, this weekend - with lots of rappers representing the Big Apple performing on the four stages in the stadium's parking lot.

You can now number Jay-Z, Beyoncé's husband, among those supporters. "Now is the time to recognize that through our voices we really can effect change", Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter wrote. His last main show in NY was part of his 2014 On the Run Tour with Beyonce, though he's had some performances for his Tidal streaming service and surprise appearances.

Migos and Run The Jewels also performed last night.

Throughout his set, Jay-Z offered concertgoers encouraging words.
