Eminem arrives on Fortnite on December 2nd

After J Balvin and Travis Scott, Eminem arrives on Fortnite.

The Detroit rapper will in fact hold a virtual performance on the occasion of the new Fortnite update.

The event is scheduled for next December 2nd and will take place in conjunction with the “Big Bang”, which will mark the transition from the fourth chapter to the fifth.

The background music of the video shared by Eminem is Tone Deaf, a piece taken from Music to Be Murdered By – Side B of 2020. In the soundtrack of the Fortnite trailer, Eminem raps for a few seconds. «They won’t stop until they cancel me (Yeah, yeah, yeah)/ Bi–h, I can make ‘orange’ rhyme with ‘banana’ (Yeah)/ Ornana/ Eating pork rinds, sword fightin’ in pajamas/ At the crib, playin’ Fortnite with your grandma».

Playing Fortnite with your grandma” is the phrase with which the trailer ends, and it is also the slogan chosen by Eminem.

For the moment it is not clear how Eminem will take part in the Fortnite show, it could be a virtual concert, but to date there are no official confirmations. On Fortnite, with the new update, new skins inspired by Eminem are available, but it is plausible that this will not be the rapper’s only presence in the game.
