Drake's been publicly playing Fortnite for a minute now under the handle TheBoyDuddus.
In a recent session with Twitch legend Ninja, Drake explained the condition under which he would rap about the survival game.
"It has to happen, it’s just gotta be the right way.” he said when Ninja asked him when he was going to name drop Fortnite in a track. “Someone’s gonna do it. Someone’s gonna pull it off. I say when Epic [the company which makes Fortnite] gives me the emote, when Epic gives me the Hotline Bling emote, I’ll do it. Until then, I’m on strike."
Later in the session, Drake promised Ninja $5,000 if he could secure a duo win. He was able to, and Drake assured him he would pay up.
