Murda Beatz Teams Up With Ski Mask The Slump God, Lil Yachty and Yung Bans for New Song “Fortnite”
Murda Beatz is taking his love for the free-to-play video game Fortnite to the next level by dropping a song named after the battle royale shooter. Enlisting the help of Fortnite fans Ski Mask The Slump God, Lil Yachty and Yung Bans, the Canadian producer crafts a beat for the rappers that features a sample of the game's theme song.
Yung Bans and Ski Mask kick off the track with the chorus, as they make a few references to the video game. "I'm in-I'm in Tilted Towers (ooh, Titled Towers) (yeah, shout-out, my huh, ooh)," the two rap.
Ski Mask then comes in for the track's first verse, showcasing his signature rapid-fire flow. "Thinkin' I am Bans in a new Benz truck/And I bought a crib, nigga get your land up/Gucci feather slipper, so I'm walking on duck/And I'm not tryna fuck, 'cause I only want suck," the 2018 XXL Freshman spits.
Following a verse from Yung Bans, Lil Boat closes out the song with his auto-tuned verse, rapping, "Baby let them toolies tick/Hope you brought your cooling kit/Talking down we poppin shit/Kick em in a mosh."
Hip-hop is no stranger to the Fortnite craze. In March, Drake and Travis Scott teamed up with popular Twitch streamer, Ninja, to play the game. Shortly after that, BlocBoy JB's famous "Shoot" dance was added to the game as an emote.
