Information on the cameo

Edward James Kenway (1693–1735) is the main protagonist in Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. He is a Welsh privateer-turned pirate and a member of the Order of Assassins. Kenway joined the British Royal Navy early in his life and, once accepted, found himself stationed in the West Indies. However, a quick end to the war and the promise of gold, glory, and fame eventually seduced him into a life of piracy, meeting such people as Blackbeard, Benjamin Hornigold, and more. It was during this quest that Kenway first encountered the Assassin Order and became embroiled in their struggle.

Appearance in the rap battle

Edward Kenway first appeared with the gangsters in Al Capone's warehouse at the start of Al Capone's second verse. He was next seen sneaking on to Blackbeard's ship, Queen Anne's Revenge. Kenway then proceeded to kill all of the pirates during the line, "I'm the emcee assassin, slash like Edward Kenway!"
