Chapter 3, Season 2 is well underway, and so far we've had a ton of new content. Not to mention the crazy IO vs. the Resistance storyline. But even if Epic had been slow on pumping out content, there's one aspect of the game they seem to be constantly working on: crossovers.
Not one other game in the history of the industry has come close to the amount of crossovers that Fortnite does. If you're a fan of something, there's a very strong chance you can find a representation of that thing to play as in Fortnite. Well, as long as your interests align with the core demographic (8-18 year olds). But what if you're into old-school hip-hop? That's surely too ambitious even for Fortnite? Well, apparently not.
[UPDATE: 22.04.2022]The leaks are no longer leaks, because Epic has officially confirmed the crossover in an official blog entry!
One of the most influential hip-hop bands of all time, Wu-Tang Clan bring their style to the island of Fortnite.

Hip-Hop Group Coming To Fortnite
An infamous Fortnite leaker called ShiinaBR recently revealed to the world that "one of the most influential hip-hop groups of all time" was joining Fortnite this week (April 20-27). Many other Fortnite leakers corroborated this, although Shiina only leaked exactly which hip-hop group he was talking about a few hours later. ShiinaBR thinks it's the Wu-Tang Clan:
The hip-hop skins are related to the Wu-Tang Clan, according to @Fercho_UwU.— Shiina (@ShiinaBR) April 20, 2022
We really hope they're right. The Wu-Tang Clan would be hilariously out of place in the cotton-candy world of Fortnite. But maybe by better understanding the mystery of chessboxing we can secure more victory royales?
Well that's certainly something to look forward to, until then, have you made sure to get this week's challenge completed for the Resistance?
