JayZ Speaks On George Floyd’s Death

Jay-Z issues a statement concerning the death of George Floyd after calling on the Governor of Minnesota to demand justice

Jay-Z released a statement about the death of George Floyd after Governor Tim Walz of Minnesota announced that he was contacted by the rapper to demand that any officers involved in his assassination face justice.

In the statement released via the official twitter account of Roc Nation, JAY-Z praised Governor Walz for taking on the George Floyd case by Attorney General Keith Ellison and encouraged lawmakers to “do the right thing and prosecute all those responsible for the murder of George Floyd to the fullest extent of the law.”

He added: “I take priority over any official, lawyer and officer in the country to have the courage to do the right thing. Have the courage to look upon us in distress as human beings, husbands, daughters, sisters and mothers. Just look out for yourself.

Jay Z also talked about his conversation with Governor Walz’.

“Governor Walz discussed earlier today having a human conversation with me — a dad and a painful black man,” he wrote. “Yes, I am a human being, a painful father and a black man and I am not the only one. This is merely the first move. I’m more determined to fight for justice than any battle my oppressors must have had.

Governor Walz said the rapper came to him during his press conference not as a “world star but as a brother, stressing to me that justice must be served.”

He continued by saying: “It was so unbelievably normal,” Walz said. “It was a father — and I honestly think a black man whose visceral pain he knew of this. His comments summed up the need to do justice here.’

“He said that he feels the love and empathy of these talking people,” Walz said. “He knows the world is watching, and how Minnesota handles that will have an impact throughout the country. It’s a good sign that at the moment of what Minnesotas are focusing on, anyone of a size who has such a presence is focusing on.
