JAY-Z is Dedicated to "The Story Of O. J." Colin Kaepernick & Dick Gregory
Looking out for his fellow man.
Queens, NY – JAY-Z title of the first of two nights at the Meadows Music & Arts Festival in Queens, New York on Friday (September 15). As he ran through his interpretation of the vintage Cars, and new tracks from the 4:44, he paused for a moment before giving a start to "The Story of O. J." to pay tribute to both Colin Kaepernick and the deceased comedian and activist Dick Gregory.
"I want to dedicate this song to Colin Kaepernick tonight," Hov said. "I want to dedicate this to Dick Gregory. I want to dedicate this song to someone that was withheld and overcame."

"As the place of O. J. will come to a space where he's like, 'I'm not black, I'm O. J.' As Tiger Woods arrives to a space and think, " I'm over the culture."
