The 32-year-old artist commended Kaepernick for risking his career for the causes he believes in. Cole explained that he thinks someone like Kaepernick is what the city of Baltimore should want to bring in to help defeat social prejudice.
“Matter of fact, don’t y’all think that someone that got money, power and fame should be standing up for them type of s—s?” Cole asked the crowd. “Baltimore, the s— that’s happening here, don’t you think that somebody should risk their whole livelihood and their whole life to talk about this s—? Even if it cost them their money, their job, their life? Don’t that sound like Colin Kaepernick? Don’t that sound like what he doing? And he trying to come to Baltimore, the city that seems to need that s— for real.”
Cole was also spotted with Kaepernick before the show, wearing one of his “I Know My Rights” shirts.
