Looks like Epic Games isn't too happy with Big Soulja.
Soulja Boy has been on a press run for the ages as of late. He first appeared on the Breakfast Club, talking about how he had the best comeback of 2018, and that Tyga doesn't even come close to him. He then went on a myriad of other shows, including Everyday Struggle, where co-host DJ Akademiks asked the "Crank That" rapper about his Soulja Boy Video Game Console, which has drawn criticism for pirating games.
Big Soulja replied to Akademiks, assuring him that everything about his console is legal.
"It's not a scam", Soulja explained. "Every game on there is licensed. There's 800 pre-installed games that are licensed. I sold a million dollars in one day, and Nintendo approached me [...] because they're trying to see what the f**k going on. This young black kid made a million dollars in 24 hours and our games are on his console, we want in!"

Now the rapper is saying his next console will be able to play the popular multiplayer game Fortnite. One problem with that though: Epic Games is putting their foot down, saying this will never happen.
In a statement to Dual Shockers, Nick Chester, Epic's Senior PR Manager said: "No, you can’t play Fortnite on a rooted or jailbroken device due to anti-cheat measures."
Soulja Boy hasn't replied to Epic's statement, but considering just how persistent Soulja Boy has been with his businesses, this won't be the last we've heard about it.
