YG's track "Big Bank "will be in Madden 19.
But not all of the track.
Folks who have an advance copy of the game (it drops on August 10th) have noticed featured artist Big Sean's Colin Kaepernick name drop has been removed from "Big Bank."
bad enough @Kaepernick7 still not signed, but now they even edit his name out in this year’s @EAMaddenNFL during @BigSean verse, smh pic.twitter.com/3nvkB26z5r— Mr. Changing Lives (@jeanclervil) August 2, 2018
"Feed me to the wolves now I lead the pack and shit
You boys all cap, I’m more Colin Kaepernick," Sean raps in the original.
We haven't heard from Sean yet, but YG's peeps say YG is furious about the censorship and want Kaepernick's name put back in his track because he fully supports everything the ex-QB is doing.
YG shouldn't be that surprised, though. Last year, Madden 18 did the same thing with a Kaepernick namedrop on Mike WiLL Made-It’s song “Bars of Soap.”
Kaepernick is currently suing the NFL for colluding to keep him out of the league because he began kneeling for the national anthem.
The Madden franchise has an exclusive licensing agreement with the NFL, which allows them to use the teams' names, uniforms, and symbols. We guess they want to keep it exclusive.
