Jay-Z speaks out afterwards calling Minnesota governor to discuss George Floyd justice.

Minnesota governor Walz, a Democrat, was the first to discuss their call in an interview with WCCO. He went on to say that Rapper Jay-Z told him, Justice needs to be served here.

It was so incredibly human, Walz said of conversation. It wasn t Jay-Z international celebrity, it was a dad and, quite honestly, a black man with visceral pain that he knew.

Jay-Z has really been outspoken over the course of his career about injustice and racism in America. He’s also an advocate for prison reform, founding the REFORM Alliance.

Jay-Z released a statement on the REFORM Alliance s Twitter account. Following his call with Governor Walz.

After our earnest conversation, thank you to Governor Walz for doing what is right and calling in Attorney General Keith Ellison to take over the George Floyd case. Earlier today, Governor Walz mentioned having a human conversation with me. A dad and a black man in pain. Yes, I am human, a father and a black man in pain and I am not the only one. Now I, along with an entire country in pain, call upon AG Ellison to do the right thing and prosecute all those responsible for the murder of George Floyd to the fullest extent of the law.

This is just a first step. I am more determined to fight for justice than any fight my would-be oppressors may have. I prevail on every politician, prosecutor and office in the country to have the courage to do what is right. Have the courage to look at us as humans, dads, brothers, sisters and mothers in pain and look at yourselves.

Jay-Z s and his wife, Singer Beyoncé, took to over the weekend to call on her fans and followers to sign multiple petitions seeking justice for George Floyd. Black Lives Matter. #blacklivesmatter✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿
