Scott and Kaepernick had at least one phone conversation before the rapper confirmed his Super Bowl appearance, sources tell Variety. A source close to Scott said that while the two did not necessarily agree, they emerged from the conversation with mutual respect and understanding, with the rapper taking the stance that everyone makes a statement in their own way and he felt that the money going toward Dream Corps, combined with the platform provided by the Super Bowl, will do some good.
One problem with that, Colin Kaepernick’s friend Ebro Darden, a radio host who works with Kaepernick’s girlfriend, Nessa, according to TMZ, says it’s not true.
Ebro first tweeted in response to the Variety report, “Kap did not approve this bullsh*t! Get the f**k outta here.”
