It has been revealed that Jay Z cut a deal with then President Trump for a presidential pardon for his Roc Nation CEO Desiree Perez.
According to a report by Variety, Jay-Z cut a secret deal with Donald Trump, where he agreed that he and Beyonce would not openly support Joe Biden as they had during the Obama-Biden campaign. In exchange, Desiree Perez would receive a presidential pardon. The report pointed out that the pardon was important to Jay-Z because Perez’s conviction could have halted his new marijuana venture as California law prohibits a convicted felon from running a cannabis business.
The news caught Funk Flex’s attention who called out Jay Z for cutting the deal.
