On Tuesday, Dolphins head coach Brian Flores made an interesting decision to play Jay-Z songs during practice. The timing of this move is being questioned because Kenny Stills recently criticized the NFL for its partnership with the iconic rapper.
Stills isn’t a stranger to letting his voice be heard. Earlier in the offseason, the wide receiver called out the team’s owner on social media.
Even though Stills was apparently aware of Flores’ playlist ahead of time, the former Oklahoma star still decided to respond to his coach’s choice of music.
According to Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, Stills played Nas songs in the locker room.
This isn’t a random choice from Stills. Nas and Jay-Z are known to be not so fond of each other due to a fallout back in 1996.
Clearly, Flores and Stills are joking around by letting their playlists settle their own mini dispute.

Any questions about Flores’ grip on the locker room should be put to rest with this latest report. It sounds as if Stills and other members of the Dolphins are getting along just fine.
Miami can use a big year from Stills in 2019, especially since the team doesn’t have a set starter at quarterback. Ryan Fitzpatrick and Josh Rosen are in a competition for the starting job.
