Drake is genuinely a Fortnite fan.
Fortnite's been taking over the globe for the past few months with a large part of the gaming community going bananas over it. A lot of rapper's have been fuckin' with it too to the point where Nyck Caution of Pro Era even dropped a song over game's theme song. Last night, Drake shook up Twitch when he and Travis Scott joined Ninja for a Fortnite gaming session. A lot of people thought it was some sort of sponsored gimmick because, well, it's Drake. However, it seems like that's not the case.
Drake's gaming session with Ninja wasn't part of any sort of sponsoring gimmick, sources told TMZ. Their report claims that people at Fortnite says that the event wasn't a part of a pre-planned thing and was simply an organic game between the best Fortnite player and one of the biggest stars around the globe. Apparently, Drake hit Ninja up on Instagram last week for a match. Their match last night just seemed to fit for both of their schedules and Drake's tweet helped bring in a hell of a lot of traction. Fortnite's now about to send Drake some sag for it.
Fortnite's reportedly setting up a a celebrity "Party Royale" game with fifty celebrities and fifty pro gamers. It's supposed to happen in the middle of June so we'll keep you posted on that.
