Over the past weekend, an in-game Fortnite radio station began playing music exclusively from rapper Eminem.

Fortnite Icon Radio appeared to play only from a 12-track playlist of the artist’s hits, including tracks like “Godzilla” to “Survival.”

So what could a potential Fortnite x Slim Shady collab look like?

Here’s everything you need to know.

Rumors have it that what will happen to Fortnite?

Fans are expecting a collaboration between the wildly popular online game and the rapped superstar, and a Slim Shady ‘skin’ – which would allow a player’s in-game character to take on the appearance of Eminem – is the one of the most requested potential additions among Fans.

The fact that this is all happening on the Icon Radio station also suggests this could be a tease for a potential Icon series outfit.

But Fortnite is a massive platform with millions of users and has recently been experimenting with new ways of providing virtual entertainment.

From intimate concert series for artists around the world to massive virtual extravaganzas from stars like Travis Scott and Marshmello, music shows have become a semi-regular feature of Fortnite.

Could Eminem be looking to do something similar?

It could all be for nothing, but it’s unusual for Epic Games to include this kind of teasing and ignore it altogether.

What evidence is there?

Among Fortnite fans, there’s a legion of “leakers” who scour the game’s coding for potential clues about what content might be added at a later date.

More often than not, their educated guesses are correct, and some leakers within the community have reliable track records when it comes to predicting new additions.

So what are they saying this time?

A notable newscaster, iFireMonkey, pointed out that although the game’s radio station played 53 minutes of Eminem’s music, no skins were found in the game files.

“There are 0 skins currently encrypted,” they said, “so it could be something smaller like an emote or a music pack.”

Given Eminem’s controversial reputation, Epic Games might just be testing the waters to see how interested Fortnite audiences would be in a bigger event.

With the long-awaited v21.40 update just days away, dataminers will be on the lookout for any new clues in the game files.

What songs were played?

The full list of Eminem songs played on Icon radio station is as follows:

  • Godzilla (ft. Juice WRLD)
  • Lighthouses (ft. Nate Russ)
  • Phenomenal
  • Upper
  • Not afraid
  • Venom
  • Lighters (ft. Bruno Mars)
  • To fall
  • Monster (ft. Rihanna)
  • Walking on Water (ft. Beyonce)
  • Berzerk
  • Survival
