In addition to the game and Esports viewings, there will also be a Freeplay Zone and many other free to play areas, which include drone races and professional VR experiences.
Baltimore rapper Logic has been busy this year, with the release of his latest studio album Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind, which dropped last month. The rapper will undergo a tour this upcoming fall in support of the recent album as part of the Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind Tour, which will see the rapper hit Vancouver, Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York City.
Marshmello was recently criticized by recent collaborator Chvrches, who lambasted the DJ for working with Chris Brown and Tyga. Both artists have both been under fire for domestic abuse, and statutory rape respectively. “We like and respect Mello as a person but working with people who are predators and abusers enables, excuses and ultimately tacitly endorses that behavior. That is not something we can or will stand behind,” a statement from the band read.
