Drake has shown some interest in gaming in the past year – you may recall his livestream with Ninja – but could the rapper be about to dive deeper into the world of gaming and esports, perhaps linked to 100 Thieves?

100 Thieves owner Matt “Nadeshot” Haag will have wake up to some exciting news on Tuesday, September 18, when he discovers rap superstar Drake has followed him and his esports organization on Instagram.

The ‘In My Feelings’ rapper has a very exclusive list of people on it, and so could be indicative of something in the works. Of course, it could mean nothing at all – maybe Drake is just a fan of Nadeshot and his organization/clothing brand.

The account Drake followed is in fact dedicated to 100 Thieves’ clothing line, with a separate Instagram account used for the esports side of things.

Drake also has his own line of clothing called ‘OVO’ (October’s Very Own), and so perhaps the two brands could be eyeing up a collaboration.

Nadeshot has proclaimed in the past that Drake is one of his top five favorite musical artists, and even suggested that “Drake loves esports”, after his stream with Ninja.

Drake’s interest in gaming was only first really known after he hit up Twitch streamer Tyler “Ninja” Blevins for a game of Fortnite duos, and they were later joined by another superstar hip-hop artist, Travis Scott.

Since then, Drake was hard at work releasing his most recent album, Scorpion, but with that out of the way, he could be looking into other ventures, and his clothing line will certainly be one.

He has already witness the size and passion of the gaming community through his stream with Ninja, as has record label Universal Music Canada, whom Drake is signed to, as they recently joined in partnership with esports organization Luminosity.

Another possibility could be linked to the rumors that the Call of Duty World League, which 100 Thieves will compete in next season, are looking to the entertainment industry for investors in a franchised league.

Drake could be one such entertainer that Activision are hoping to get involved, if those rumors are to be believed.

Myth justifies surprising decision to unfollow everyone on social media

Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani is taking a new approach on social media, as the popular TSM content creator has revealed why he felt it was time to “experiment” by unfollowing everyone on all of his accounts.

Myth is one of the most popular content creators on the internet. The 21-year-old boasts over seven million followers on both Twitch and Instagram, with another four million subscribers on YouTube as well. He’s grown a massive community with his energetic vibes and impressive gameplay, but Myth just made a drastic change.

Across all social media accounts, the content creator has now wiped the slate clean. He no longer follows any streamer pals, no business contacts, or anyone in between. Myth follows a grand total of zero accounts across all of his platforms.

Why make such a sudden change? Myth explained it all in a series of tweets on December 2. In a difficult year as it is, he felt it was the right time to “experiment with having zero people followed across [his] social media sites.”

One of the main factors behind this decision was to stop himself from “comparing” to others. It can be easy to see idyllic Instagram posts, for instance, and feel a little down in the dumps by comparison. Everyone can empathize with that experience these days. So in order to block it out, his social media is now wiped clean.

The current global crisis certainly didn’t help either. “I’ve had some of the loneliest moments of my life,” he explained. “Social media doesn’t make that feeling any better, at least with the way I currently use it. It just ends up making me feel like other people got it better”

Obviously, most social media personalities are often sharing the highlights in their lives. Rarely do we see our favorite content creators truly breaking down that barrier and sharing everything. Most of the time, we only see what they want us to see. Myth is well aware of this and understands “that’s not the full reality of things.”

Despite this, it’s still a “really draining mindset to have,” he explained. “I wanna eradicate it.” In light of his transparency, countless others reached out to commend his decision. 

“You’re an amazing streamer,” Dakotaz followed up. “Do whatever you gotta do.”

While Myth has unfollowed everyone, he wanted to stress that he’ll still be active and interacting with his fanbase. “I can still see and appreciate comments and messages,” he added.

Don’t expect Myth to keep his accounts this clean forever though. It may be a solid reprieve during this chaotic year, but even he joked that in “six months [he’ll] definitely be back” to his usual ways.
