The Roots, Busta Rhymes, Run-DMC & More Perform At Madden Bowl XX [PHOTOS]

 

Although only two teams can compete in the actual The Big Game, NFL players still found a way to duke it out on the field this Super Bowl Weekend thanks to Madden NFL 25 and Madden Bowl XX.

Philadelphia Eagles running back Lesean McCoy was crowned king of joystick bragging rights as he bested the likes of A.J. Green, Eddie Lacy and runner-up Cam Newton in the single-elimination tournament.

EA Sports hosted the man cave event at The Bud Light Hotel near the USS Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in New York, NY as the city quickly warmed up with Super Bowl fever.

As expected, Hip-Hop was well represented in the building as Busta Rhymes, The Roots, Run-DMC, Slick Rick and Doug E. Fresh, Naughty By Nature, De La Soul and DJ Jazzy Jeff entertained the crowd with hours worth of legendary music.

Ironically, it was the first time Run-DMC had rocked center stage in NYC since Jam Master Jay’s passing.

Peyton Manning was not in attendance–as his attention rightfully deserved a bigger focus but his secondary money-maker in Papa Johns passed their new double cheeseburger pizza around for the people’s consumption. The players still have a bit of wiggle room until the 2014-2015 season so a couple bites wouldn’t hurt (much).
