Following Meek Mill and Meghan Trainor's performance, fans are encouraged to stay at Grant Park for the NFL KICKOFF WATCH PARTY as the Green Bay Packers take on the Chicago Bears.

Meek Mill, Trainor and Rapsody on Friday were also named "advocates" for the National Football League and Jay-Z-led Roc Nation's Inspire Change initiative.

A portion of the performance will appear on pre-game programs on NBC and the NFL Network.

Reid jumped on Twitter this week to let loose on JAY using his social justice campaign to ultimately put out a line of upcoming clothes called Inspire Change.

Earlier this month, it was announced that the NFL signed a deal with Roc Nation, Jay-Z's entertainment and sports company, setting the company as the league's "live music entertainment strategist" to consult on entertainment, including the Super Bowl halftime show, and contribute to the NFL's activism initiative, Inspire Change.

"Let's diffuse the uprising of Black voices demanding justice with concerts to "inspire change" that have nothing at all to do with real "action".

A public vote was then held, with goals from Lionel Messi , Juan Fernando Quintero and Daniel Zsori making the final shortlist. The Dutchman had won the Champions League and finished as runner-up in the Nations League building up to his win.

NY rap mogul JAY-Z can't help but keep sparking drama.

Hova has been getting roasted on Twitter and Colin Kaepernick, who Jay-Z seemingly sent up the river by doing this deal, had a subtle shot that he placed on Instagram that stings a lot more when you realize the implications at hand.

Mill and Jay-Z introduced in July that they'd companion to create a brand new file label, Dream Chasers, with Mill serving as its president.

Mill, Trainor and Rapsody will host two Chicago-based community organizations, BBF Family Services and Crushers Club, during their September 5 concert, which will be followed by a watch party of the Bears-Packers game.

The previous day, Rapsody will host an "Inspire Change Speed Mentorship" in which she and others will serve as mentors to 65 young men and women between the ages of 13-19.
