TMZ reports that in his new track “Apeshit,” Jay-Z revealed that he turned down an offer from the NFL to perform at the Super Bowl Halftime Show. The track, which is from his dual album with Beyonce, features Offset and Quavo.

He rapped: “I said no to the Super Bowl: you need me, I don’t need you. Every night we in the endzone, tell the NFL we in stadiums too.

TMZ claims the implication is that Jay-Z turned down the NFL due to how they handled the Colin Kaepernick kneeling situation, which he criticized before. In the music video, there are around eleven people kneeling during those lyrics.

This could confirm reports that he turned them down in September 2017, which he didn’t comment on and the NFL denied.
