Eminem recently released his new single, “Houdini,” on May 31, which has already garnered significant attention. This Emote release coincides with the anticipation surrounding Eminem’s upcoming album,The Death of Slim Shady (Coup de Grâce),” slated for release later this year.

Following Eminem’s successful debut in Fortnite earlier this year, the introduction of another Emote tied to his latest track makes perfect sense.

Eminem’s Return to Fortnite

On June 22, players noticed the Rap Boy Eminem Outfit had mysteriously disappeared from their Fortnite lockers. Epic Games investigated the issue, and three days later, the skin was re-enabled in the Fortnite Item Shop, marking Eminem’s return. While Epic Games offered no official explanation, players took the opportunity to humorously meme the situation.


It’s unclear whether this disappearance was an intentional joke by Epic Games, but it certainly adds to the mystique surrounding “Houdini.” The Houdini Emote’s availability is limited, so make sure to grab it while you can if you’re a fan of Eminem or Fortnite cosmetics.
