Jay-Z speaks out after calling Minnesota Governor to discuss justice for George Floyd

- Advertisment -


Walz, a Democrat, was the first to discuss their call in an interview with WCCO and said Jay-Z told him, “Justice needs to be served here.”

“It was so incredibly human,” Walz said of conversation. “It wasn’t Jay-Z international celebrity, it was a dad and quite honestly a black man with visceral pain that he knew.”

Jay-Z has been outspoken over the course of his career about racism in America. He’s also and advocate for prison reform, founding the REFORM Alliance.

Following his call with Gov. Walz, Jay-Z released a statement on the REFORM Alliance’s Twitter account.

“After our earnest conversation, thank you to Governor Walz for doing what’s right and calling in Attorney General Keith Ellison to take over the George Floyd case. Earlier today, Governor Walz mentioned having a human conversation with me. A dad and a black man in pain. Yes, I am human, a father and a black man in pain and I am not the only one. Now I, along with an entire country in pain, call upon AG Ellison to do the right thing and prosecute all those responsible for the murder of George Floyd to the fullest extent of the law.”

Jay-Z added, “This is just a first step. I am more determined to fight for justice than any fight my would-be oppressors may have. I prevail on every politician, prosecutor and office in the country to have the courage to do what is right. Have the courage to look at us as humans, dads, brothers, sisters and mothers in pain and look at yourselves.”

Jay-Z’s wife, Beyoncé took to Instagram over the weekend to call on her fans to sign multiple petitions seeking justice for Floyd.
