Colin Kaepernick’s name will be added back to YG’s “Big Bank” on the soundtrack for Madden ’19 after swift and heavy backlash.
It’s disappointing and appalling @NFL & @EA took @Kaepernick7’s name out of my verse on Big Bank for Madden 19, like it was a curse word. When he's not a curse, he's a gift! Nobody from my team approved any of this.

According to EA, it was all an unfortunate misunderstanding. The company’s taking the blame for Colin’s name being scrubbed from YG‘s song “Big Bank” on the game.
EA says … “We made an unfortunate mistake with our Madden NFL soundtrack. Members of our team misunderstood the fact that while we don’t have rights to include Colin Kaepernick in the game, this doesn’t affect soundtracks.”
The company adds the edit never should have happened, and apologized to Kaep, the NFL, players and fans … along with YG and Big Sean.
That’s one heck of a misunderstanding.
