Rapper Sam B. From Dead Island Isn’t Real, But His Music Video Is

Deep Silver and Techland have crafted some attention-catching videos for the promotion of their zombie survival series Dead Island, and this new music video is no exception.

In preparation for the upcoming release of Dead Island: Riptide, today we get a music video from rap superstar Sam B titled “No Room in Hell”. If you don’t know much about the game, then this might just seem like a strange rap release that happens to have a zombie theme to it.

Ah, but here’s the thing—Sam B is one of the main characters from Dead Island. According to the story, Sam B recorded this collaboration with Chamillionaire (yes, the real Chamillionaire) before his trip to the island of Banoi—an island that now has no communication with the outside world for unexplained reasons.

So, yes, this is a real music video by the virtual rap star who you can play as as part of the Dead Island series. It’s a fun little piece of marketing, I’ve got to say.

Also–before you hit play—do be aware that this track has some mature language in it.
