Jay Z Made a Cool Cameo in One NFL Team’s Locker Room

Hov was part of the victory speech, too!

Published December 14th

With the growth and success of Roc Nation Sports, Jay Z could go anywhere he pleases on any given Sunday.

Hov did just that, appearing as a special guest inside the St. Louis Rams' locker room following their 21-14 home win over the Detroit Lions on Sunday. Once there, the celebratory team asked Jay to break down their huddle, a tradition for most teams after a game. With a little hesitation, the rap mogul gave the team a few words to send them on their way following the Week 13 victory.

Jay Z made the special appearance inside the team's locker room because Rams rookie stud running back Todd Gurley is a Roc Nation Sports client, having signed with the company this past January, well before the 2015 NFL Draft.

Although the Rams are struggling through another losing season, currently at 5-8, Gurley's rookie year has been an absolute hit.

The 21-year-old, 6-foot-1, 227-pound running back has rushed for 975 yards and eight touchdowns, ranking him within the top five running backs in the NFL this season.

Other Roc Nation Sports clients in the NFL include Dez Bryant, Victor Cruz, Geno Smith and Ndamukong Suh.
