"I want yall to understand, when people are kneeling and putting their firsts up, and doing what they're doing, it's not about a flag," the Brooklyn rapper said. "It's about justice, it's about injustice. And that's not a black or white thing — it's a human issue."

JAY-Z also addressed recent reports that he was struggling to sell tickets on his tour: "It's 17,000 muhfuckas in here tonight but what they gon' say is nobody was in here tonight." Watch the full video here via TMZ.
