The latest DLC character for Street Fighter V was Akuma, who was released in December. You can learn more about Akuma here.

Fiasco is no stranger to Street Fighter. Last year, he defeated professional fighting game player Daigo Umehara in a Street Fighter V exhibition match.

A known fan of video games, Fiasco has in the past wrote lyrics that reference various game titles and consoles. A recent example can be found in the track "Adoration of the Magi."

"Yeah, lots of options, now up is down, two player // Now A is jump and B is punch // You seein' somethin' that weren't there // To find friendliness in a nemesis, it's a old test // 3 buttons, see somethin' // That's emphasis on genesis."
