NFL, Roc Nation Announce First Two Projects Of Partnership
The NFL and Roc Nation have announced their first two projects together: "Inspire Change," an apparel line out later this year, and "Songs of the Season," a music project that will showcase artists and integrate their music into NFL promotions. Meek Mill, Meghan Trainor and Rapsody are the first artists up in the SOTS project. They will perform Thursday in Chicago's Grant Park ahead of the Packers-Bears kickoff game. Mill left jail in '18 after Patriots Owner Robert Kraft, Fanatics Founder & Exec Chair Michael Rubin and Jay-Z advocated for his release. Proceeds of both projects will go to “support organizations committed to the key priorities of Inspire Change,” the league said: education and economic empowerment, police and community relations and criminal justice reform. The Inspire Change apparel line will be available later in the '19 season. The NFL and Roc Nation first announced their partnership on Aug. 13.
