Canadian rapper Drake set the gaming world ablaze when he announced on Twitter that he would be joining forces with well known gamer Tyler Blevins, aka Ninja, in live-streaming a match of Fortnite: Battle Royale on Twitch.com.
The world of gaming is no joke, people. With Drake's inclusion, Ninja gained more than 90,000 followers on Twitch.com, which will pay him roughly $250,000 more per month.
Where do we sign up?
Before long Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster and rapper Lil Yachty had joined in...
Rapper Bobby Tarantino was throwing some subtle shade looking to get in on the action:
The game set a record for live-streaming, with 600,000 concurrent viewers, and people couldn't get enough:
