Today Bungie released the second video in their Heroes Welcome campaign, “My Story,” featuring Destiny 2 community member Uhmaayyze as he raps in an original track about his path to becoming a content creator through his passion for the game. Destiny 2 fans got an additional behind-the-scenes video following Uhmaayyze as he speaks about his journey and why he became a Destiny 2 creator.
Bungie’s Heroes Welcome campaign focuses on highlighting Destiny 2 player stories and celebrating the varied “heroism” that uplifts gaming communities and makes being part of online social experiences more fun and inclusive. Based in the United States, Uhmaayyze is known for his unwavering positivity and live freestyle rapping over Destiny 2 gameplay which sparked him to claim the title of “official” hypeman of Destiny. The behind-the-scenes featurette shows the creator’s trip to Los Angeles, his recording of the original collaborative track, and the filming of the “My Story” music video.
|“It’s amazing when you believe in a community that believes in you. I’m very thankful to my community and the fans because, without them, this wouldn’t be possible,” Uhmaayyze said of his experience. “I felt like a superstar doing this shoot. Everything about that moment was like a dream come true. I want to thank Bungie, the team at ICHI, my family, and most of all, you, the fans and my community. Thank you for believing in me because this is only the beginning of my journey and I wouldn’t be here without you all—dream big, Guardians.”
