Will Travis Scott have his own Fortnite skin?

Will Travis Scott have his own Fortnite skin? The rumors also talk about a concert of the rapper within the game

Since its appearance in 2017, Fortnite has become a cultural phenomenon with 125 million players a year – a number that also includes the likes of Drake, Finn Wolfhard, Chance The Rapper and Travis Scott. The latter could be part of the Fortnite Icon Series and have a skin with his features in the game. A cosmetic set of the rapper had appeared in an earlier update of the game, as revealed by the @Lucas7yoshi account in February, only to be quickly removed. But a leak posted by the @HYPEX Twitter page shows a skin with Scott's appearance.

Epic Games has not commented on the rumor, nor it's to be expected that it will. The image of the skin published by @HYPEX, however, remains ambiguous: on the one hand the outfit of the character and the presence of the now iconic Air Jordan 1 "Cactus Jack" would confirm its identity, on the other the image is very blurry and its seemingly shaved head, without Scott's signature hairstyle, leaves room for doubt. If it were to be Travis Scott, as is likely, there would also be the possibility of a rapper's concert that will take place within the game – not unlike Marshmello's at the beginning of last year.
