Throwback Thursday: A Look Back At Ludacris’ Madden 2000 Intro [Video]

On Tuesday, Madden ’15 was released on Playstation 4, Playstation 3, X-Box 360 and X-Box one.

The game over the years has become a phenomenon as people line up at midnight and take a day off of work to challenge your friends to a game and bring your team to the super bowl during Franchise mode.

Fifteen years ago, Madden was entering a new millennium and for the first time ever introduced a new, more hip hop feel with its introduction.

Once the instrumental began, you just became hyped to play the game. And then Ludacris began rapping.

“Maaaaaaaaan get out of my way and watch out as I come through!”

The vignette of all of the league’s biggest players at the time including Vinny Testaverde, Cris Carter and Barry Sanders really make you feel old if you look at it now.

It was one of my first memories of the game as I played it on the original Playstation with what was then amazing graphics.

Turn back the clock and enjoy out the intro below!!
