Brazilian rapper Emicida will appear in Fortnite as part of its Soundwave Series.
Emicida’s show is airing back-to-back for 72 hours starting on April 29 at 6 pm ET. Each show in the Soundwave Series features an interactive experience. Upcoming experiences later this year will include Japanese pop artist and music producer Gen Hoshino and French-Malian singer Aya Nakamura.
In the Emicida Soundwave Series for Fortnite, the rapper shares his life from his street rap battles to becoming an internationally recognized rapper.
Emicida’s interactive Soundwave experience in Fortnite was made by creators Bert Builds, Paradox Builds, and Zen Creative. The experience is designed to inform fans about Emicida’s life and how it has influenced his music. The setlist includes some of the Brazilian rapper’s biggest hits and tells the story of his upbringing in São Paulo, Brazil on his path to becoming one of the biggest rappers in the country.
