Offset wouldn’t be the first celebrity to take an interest in FaZe Clan, either: rapper Lil Yachty similarly joined forces with the org in December 2019 during the “Rolling Loud” music festival, bringing FaZe’s biggest faces onstage with him to announce the move.

Under the FaZe banner as “FaZe Boat,” Lil Yachty referred to the players as his “brothers,” officially partnering with the esports giant after expressing an interest in the group back in 2017.

The NFL’s JuJu Smith-Schuster is also affiliated with FaZe, making Offset the third high-profile celebrity member to invest in the ever-growing organization.

Offset’s merger with FaZe also follows Canadian rapper Drake’s investment in esports group 100 Thieves in October 2018, marking a major move for Matthew “Nadeshot” Haag’s very own competitive gaming team.

This time around in an IRL stream, HAchubby took a quiet moment to sit at a piano in a music shop, and play a soft tune for her followers. It seemed that such a calm activity could not possibly be interrupted by any bizarre occurrences, but the most unexpected things always seem to happen to the Korean streamer.

As the piece she was playing came to a lull she looked up at the camera, just in time for the song “U Guessed It” by OG Maco to start blasting through the speakers abruptly, at full volume no less.

She immediately doubled over with laughter, bewildered by the abrupt ending to her lovely solo. Through her laughter she said “what the heck is this timing?” looking around the shop, absolutely baffled.

The clip of the incident has now garnered nearly 60,000 views, with people loving HAchubby’s brilliant reaction to yet another crazy IRL stream.
