Big Sean To The NFL: 'When We Say What We Mean, We Mean What We Say'

He said what he said, just like that.

Published August 6, 2018

The NFL has an ongoing petty ban against Colin Kaepernick and recently went too far when they removed his name from YG and Big Sean’s “Big Bank,” which appears on “Madden 19.” Both emcees have spoken out against the unwarranted edit.

  1. EA Sports issued an apology, but it’s evidently insincere
  2. Even Kaepernick’s girlfriend, Nessa, clapped back at their screwup
  3. Sean still had a few things to get off his chest, and in a recent performance with YG, the Detroit rapper continued to stand up for the NFL icon

    In the snippet below, his stance is obvious: he isn’t here for the lackluster apology and will damn sure let you know it. “They can’t stop us. They ain’t gon censor us. They ain’t gon take no lyrics outta no songs. When we say what we mean, we mean what we say.” He then began to chant his bar, “You boys all cap/I'm more Colin Kaepernick.”

    Like Sean said, Kaepernick is a gift, not a curse, and it's time they realize we have a voice and stand ready to use it.
