Popular content creator Jake Paul has revealed why he won’t be uploading as much to his YouTube channel anymore, after branching out into music and boxing in recent years.

Jake Paul has built a massive online audience for his entertaining vlog series on YouTube, racking up over 20.2 million subscribers for his efforts on his main channel.

However, it seems as if he will be putting his vlogs to one side, claiming he is no longer a YouTuber and revealed he would be completely changing his content output in the coming months.

Jake Paul has been focused on Boxing and Music in recent years.

During Jake Paul’s September 23 upload, he explained that he would be converting his main channel into a music channel, following the success of his recent tracks, “23” and “Fresh Outta London.”

He also revealed that his new boxing career also seemed to be taking up a lot of his time and explained that it was partly why he is shifting his focus away from the vlog series.

“I’m not a YouTuber anymore, I f***ing suck at it, honestly I don’t put effort into it,” Jake Paul admitted.

“I’m a boxer and I make music now, and training takes up so much time and then I’m just tired, and I get hit in the head so much that I can’t even think of anything creative,” he added.

He later explained that he had created a second channel for any vlogs he decides to make and would also be focused on creating a boxing documentary about his journey into the sport.

Jake Paul’s next fight against former NBA star Nate Robinson is currently expected to take place on the undercard of Mike Tyson’s return against Roy Jones Jr on November 28, in California.

His brother Logan Paul also seems to be getting back into boxing, with rumors of Floyd Mayweather returning from retirement to clash with the YouTuber in the ring.

Popular music streamer and DragonForce guitarist Herman Li has had his Twitch account banned on October 27, with the reason still unknown.

In a shock move, Twitch has suspended popular musician Herman Li from streaming on the platform, which he uses to provide insight into the life of professional musicians, as well as to shred his guitar like the metal God that he is.

Known for being the lead guitarist of Grammy-winning heavy rock group DragonForce – the masterminds behind the infamous ‘Through the Fire and Flames’ that dominated every Guitar Hero players’ childhood, Li has been praised over the years for his musical talents.

The guitarist has become somewhat of an icon on the platform, so it shocked fans to see his channel was no longer available.

Li has become not only a DragonForce icon, but a Twitch one too.

Is this a DMCA ban?

At the time of writing, the reason for Li’s ban is unknown. Twitch does not comment on moderation decisions as a matter of privacy.

Speculation though, is that the artist has been banned as part of the new wave of DMCA strikes that have been sweeping across Twitch. As a musical streamer, DMCA makes the lives of musicians particularly difficult. Many have and may be banned in the future due to these new regulations – even if they are playing their own music.

In April, Li was livid as Universal muted his music on YouTube.

Neither Li nor Twitch have elaborated on why the ban has taken place. No matter the reason though, this news comes will come as a shock to both Li and his fans, especially when he addressed the Twitch ban situation directly on stream back in June, reassuring other streamers that using his band’s music would not result in a DMCA strike.

Li stated that: “We know all these crazy things are happening on Twitch, people getting banned, people getting taken down, DMCA, I can tell you, you can play any song from the latest DragonForce album, Extreme Power Metal, and you will not get a strike. I assure you, you will be ok. Because we are very good friends with our people from the record label, who also love Twitch, so you will not have a problem.”

We will update this story if more details on the reason behind Li’s suspension become clear.
