Fortnite is one of the most popular games between artists and celebrities, which led to some virtual concerts and many skins related to them. The biggest of them was when American rapper Travis Scott held a full virtual Astronomical event that many non-gamers were encouraged to play and try Fortnite for the first time. Now it seems Juice WRLD, another young American rapper, is trying to get into Fortnite via his manager, Peter Jideonwo.
Is Juice WRLD Coming to Fortnite?
Juice WRLD’s manager, Peter Jideonwo announced in a video that he tries to bring the young rapper to Fortnite. The video went viral on Twitter, which divided the fans. Some fans are happy to see their favorite artist in Fortnite and some others criticize the act and call the artist and Epic Games greedy.
“We definitely need Juice WRLD on Fortnite,” said Jideonwo in the video.
“We’ve been trying our hardest and that’s also a work-in-progress – we’ve actually got a meeting. I think it’s next Thursday, if I’m not mistaken – Tuesday or Thursday with Epic. Epic makes Fortnite game so if y’all want to… I really think it’ll be cool because I think they definitely… obviously everyone on Fortnite loves Juice and ‘Come & Go’ was a huge record on Fortnite, so I think it really fits.”
It seems the manager of Juice WRLD is not trying to bring the rapper as a playable character in the game. But rap culture and Fortnite have always had a great relationship. Therefore, having a virtual event alongside adding a Juice WRLD skin seems logical. Jideonwo also encouraged fans to share their passion for seeing the rapper in the game, so Epic Games would make the procedure go faster.
Fortnite is available for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Epic Store.
