YG Gets Apology From EA Sports' CEO For Colin Kaepernick Controversy

West Hollywood, CA – A line on YG’s “Big Bank” single featuring Big Sean, Nicki Minaj and 2 Chainz caused some controversy earlier this week.

The song is included on the Madden 19 soundtrack and finds Big Sean spitting, “Feed me to the wolves/Now I lead the pack and shit/You boys all cap, I’m more Colin Kaepernick.”

The problem? The line about Kaepernick was cut from the track used on the EA Sports video game soundtrack. Sean Don, YG and the former San Francisco 49er all took notice of the edit on social media. Now, YG has reportedly gotten an apology from EA Sports CEO Andrew Wilson.

“The CEO just called me like three hours ago,” he told TMZ. “We had a conversation on the phone. They was apologizing. They said they was going to do more to call everybody and apologize and all that. That wasn’t purposely done is what they say. But I’m a fan of the NFL, NBA and all that, so we just gotta make it right.

“I’m not boycotting Madden on blood. I got it in my car right now. I’m about to go play that shit. They put bro’s name back in the song on the game, so it’s all good. Shout out to the homie Colin Kaepernick. That’s my boy. That’s my dawg, so we had to be let it known that this shit ain’t street.”

Big Sean called out EA Sports and the NFL via Twitter on Thursday (August 2), referring to the edit as “disappointing and appalling.”

Kaepernick thanked Big Sean for the support and YG was adamant he had no idea the edit was being made. EA Sports issued a public apology and promised to put the line back in by Monday (August 6).
