There's a new twist to the JAY-Z/NFL partnership drama.

Nine-time Grammy winner Brian Michael Cox has revealed JAY-Z called Jermaine Dupri and advised him not to partner with the NFL on last year's Super Bowl 53 halftime show. As part of JAY's new deal the league, he will advise them on halftime shows. Jump to the 14:30 mark.

“I’m not saying that it can’t turn into some good sh*t. We’re also talking about a guy [JAY-Z] who single-handedly picked up the phone and called Jermaine to tell him not to do it," Cox explained. "When we all had that meeting with the NFL, all that shit was part of the same sh*t.”

Funk Flex has now confirmed Hov did have that conversation with Dupri. 

"I JUST GOT OFF THE PHONE WITH JERMAINE DUPRI... HE CONFIRMED THAT WHEN HE WAS WORKING WITH THE NFL LAST YEAR HE DID GET A CALL FROM JAYZ ASKING HIM.. “HOW DEEP ARE U IN WITH THE NFL?” EXPRESSING... “THAT MIGHT NOT BE A GOOD IDEA," Flex typed.

Hmm. Do you think Hov was finessing, or is there going to be more to this story?
