Z shows support for Colin Kaepernick on SNL

The season premiere of "Saturday Night Live" didn't pull any punches when it came to political commentary.

The rapper and music streaming mogul took to the SNL stage alongside Damian Marley to perform his song "Bam", off of his most recent album 4:44, while wearing Kaepernick's now-recognizable number 7, though the shirt didn't appear to be an official jersey, with the name on the back reading "Colin K".
