Madden NFL 19 controversy[edit]

The song is featured on the soundtrack of the 2018 video game Madden NFL 19. Prior to its release, it was revealed Electronic Arts had removed quarterback Colin Kaepernick's name from the song, which led to outcry on social media. Big Sean, who raps the verse, called the action "disappointing and appalling". EA responded to the criticism by saying:

"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. We messed up, and the edit should never have happened. We will make it right, with an update to Madden NFL 19 on August 6 that will include the reference again. We meant no disrespect, and we apologize to Colin, to YG and Big Sean, to the NFL, to all of their fans and our players for this mistake."[6]
