Rap superstar Lil Yachty was a surprise attendee at E3 this year, invited out to take part in the Fortnite Pro-Am tournament he spent some time around the convention – and even did a live show on the spot.

Yachty, real name Miles McCollum, broke out in 2015 with a number of hit singles from his debut EP and has since risen the ranks to become one of worlds hottest hip-hop artists.

But it turns out that he is also an avid gamer, and even began live streaming games like Call of Duty and Fortnite on Twitch a few months ago.

Around the same time, he also reached out to esports organization FaZe Clan asking if he could join, and FaZe of course obliged.

Yachty has since been spotted rocking full FaZe apparel as he sits front row at NBA games alongside other rap stars Quavo and Offset from group Migos (who coincidentally also attended E3 this year).

So when Fortnite decided to put on a huge ‘Pro-Am Celebrity’ tournament at this year’s E3 convention, Yachty was likely one of the first names on their list to take part. 

And he did, pairing up with popular streamer timthetatman, the pair might not have won at the event, but Yachty was certainly one of the biggest names in attendance.

After the event, it looks like Yachty made the most of his time out at the convention, and even stopped by the SUBNATION booth to put on a live show for a small but very lucky crowd.

The one off moment was caught on the Twitch stream of lilypichu, an IRL streamer and YouTuber who has almost 500,000 followers on the platform.

Yachty, who also goes by ‘Lil Boat’ was not the only rap star out at the event either, as Ty Dolla $ign, Desiigner, PartyNextDoor, Murda Beatz, Witt Lowry, Vince Staples and the aforementioned Migos all made an appearance too.

Hasan trolls shroud’s new look for looking exactly like Borat

Popular content creator Hasan ‘HasanAbi’ Piker hilariously trolled fellow Twitch star Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek’s new look – comparing it to one of Sacha Baron Cohen’s styles in the new Borat sequel.

Big-name Twitch streamers are always sparking fun feuds between each other for fans to get invested in, as has been seen with the likes of Dr Disrespect, shroud, and more in the past.

Since shroud made his return to Twitch, it has not taken long for some of his fellow streamers to troll him after he debuted a new goatee on stream, instead of his regular clean-shaven look.

HasanAbi was the latest to poke fun at shroud’s choice of facial hair during his October 23 broadcast, comparing it to the new Borat movie.

Borat switches up his usual style for some scenes in the second movie.

Hasan, who’s risen to popularity on Twitch as both a gamer and political commentator was hosting a Twitch watch party for ‘Borat Subsequent Moviefilm’ on Amazon Prime. When a particular scene came up, he was quick to point out similarities between shroud and the main character.

While Borat is usually seen with a long mustache, there is a scene in the movie that sees him rocking a goatee and a pair of glasses, causing Hasan to pull up an image of shroud alongside.

“I have to show- oh my god guys, look at this,” he said, before trolling with a side-by-side image of Borat next to shroud.

Hasan could not help bursting into laughter – the match between the former CSGO pro and Cohen’s latest character is uncanny.

Dr Disrespect previously laid into shroud for his new facial hair, and the jokes are not letting up.

Shroud hasn’t clapped back yet, instead just letting his fellow streamers have their fun – while he rides high on his successful move back to Twitch, following the collapse of Mixer.
