The hip-hop and (at least part of) the sports world bowed to Nike’s surprise announcement revealing their endorsement of former NFL quarterback and socio-political activist Colin Kaepernick as the new face of its “Just Do It” campaign.
The multinational, multibillion-grossing shoe and sports apparel entity celebrated its 30th anniversary with the bombshell advertisement and commercial featuring Kaep earlier this week, blowing the internet, Kaep supporters, and even his detractors to smithereens. It goes without saying that the former San Francisco 49ers' footballer had the entire rap world standing behind him upon unveiling the deal.
“Although what Nike did was brave,” he began explaining in his prediction, “it’s gonna start a race war. And a purge.”
He goes on to explain that the major corporation might have put a chip on America’s shoulder, and it will “stop policing,” leaving everyone vulnerable to any and all attacks at major events (presumably, festivals, sporting events, concerts etc.).
“I hope I’m wrong, but this might be what they’re talking about in Revelations right here,” he concluded, referencing the Holy Bible’s apocalyptic description of the ends of time.
Check out what the rest of hip-hop had to say about Kaep's celebratory Nike deal.
