Eminem has confirmed the rumors about him making a cameo on Fortnite, although he hasn’t yet specified the exact nature of it.
On Tuesday (November 21), soon after it was reported that Shady had been recruited for a Big Bang live event on the platform, the man himself posted a teaser on social media and corroborated the news.
“Bitch, I can make an orange rhyme with banana, oranana/ Eating pork rinds, sword fightin’ in pajamas/ At the crib, playin’ Fortnite with your grandma,” he raps in the brief clip that zooms into a television set starting from outer space.
The caption, for reasons that aren’t entirely clear yet, reads: “[satellite emoji] calling all grandmas 12.2.”
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III hit shelves earlier this month and includes new gaming elements such as a 3v3v3 mode called Cutthroat and updated maps, along with familiar modes such as Hardpoint and Kill Confirmed.
Eminem first partnered with the COD franchise back in August 2013, when he released a new song called “Survival” to hype up Call of Duty: Ghosts.
“The energy and intensity of ‘Survival’ really matches Call of Duty: Ghosts,” Em said in a press release at the time. “I’m excited to continue to be a part of the franchise.”
Those who purchased the game were given access to a code that allowed them to download a special edition of his album, The Marshall Mathers LP 2, which also dropped that year.
Last month, Eminem lent his talents to the Call of Duty franchise for the second time by soundtracking the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III multiplayer trailer. In early October, Activision Blizzard dropped the action-packed trailer, which is filled with heavy artillery, explosions and various scenic locations.
In the background of the electrifying preview was Em’s 2002 hit “‘Till I Collapse” featuring the late Nate Dogg, taken from The Eminem Show.
