(AllHipHop News) Colin Kaepernick became part of the national political conversation because of his silent protest against police brutality. The athlete-turned-activist also connected with numerous music artists - such as Meek Mill, Snoop Dogg, Jhené Aiko, Chris Brown, T.I., and Joey Bada$$ - for his #10For10 initiative which raised over $1 million for non-profit organizations.
Now that the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback has become the face of Nike's 30th anniversary "Just Do It" campaign, Hip Hop figures are showing love to the 30-year-old. Rappers and media personalities posted messages about Kap's new deal on Twitter.
Some of the tweeters congratulated Colin for his "wide endorsement" with the brand. Other people responded to Donald Trump supporters' decision to destroy their Nike items.
Besides the Hip Hop stars that posted about Kaepernick on social media, musicians like Jay-Z, Erykah Badu, Beyoncé, J. Cole, Wale, and Cardi B have publicly backed Kap as well. In contrast, Fat Joe, Tee Grizzley and Kevin Gates have expressed their disapproval of NFL players kneeling during the playing of "The Star-Spangled Banner" for various reasons.
