Jay Z announced that he will join Stevie Wonder, Madonna and other musicians boycotting the state of Florida in the wake of the George Zimmerman trial.

Jay Z’s boycott, however, will begin after he makes millions of dollars for performing with Justin Timberlake in Florida.

The pair are still scheduled to stop in Miami for their “Legends of the Summer Tour” on Aug. 16, Florida’s Post Newsweek reports.

A number of musicians, including Usher, Rod Stewart and Kanye West, have said that they will not perform in the 20 states that have “stand your ground” laws after Zimmerman’s acquittal in the death of Trayvon Martin.

Despite earlier reports, Mother Jones writes that neither Rihanna nor the Rolling Stones have plans to boycott those states because, you know, money.
