Are Jay Z and Beyonce Silent Activists?
Much has been made about Jay Z and Beyonce when it comes to being social activists. Some say that they aren’t willing to risk their status by being involved in polarizing efforts, while others simply believe that they don’t care. But the past weekend might have shed some light on the fact that Jay Z and Beyonce may be involved, they just don’t want to make a big deal about it.
Jay Z sparked some dialogue when he freestyled the following verse at his B Sides show in NYC.
After namedropping Freddie Gray, Mike Brown and Trayvon Martin, some people wondered if perhaps Jay had turned over a new leaf. Shortly after, activist and co-author of Jay’s Decoded book, Dream Hampton, took to social media to explain that The Carters have always been involved, just in the background.
Neither Jay Z or Beyonce have commented on the tweets and Hampton has since deleted them from her page. What could this all mean?
