Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani was once the King of Fortnite. However, long after his legacy on the game has faded into history, he’s still managed to keep his place at the top of Twitch. How, do you ask? He just got lucky and “pulled the lotto.”

Myth’s streaming career has been up-and-down, to say the least. Once, he was at the top of Twitch, with people tuning in across the world as he made his place in Fortnite.

However, as he fell off the map, so did his fanbase. He needed some time to adapt. Instead, he started building a community around his personality. It’s paid off.

The TSM star streamer is still relatively grounded with his successes though. He took some time to take it in on a recent stream ⁠— wondering just how he got away with his Twitch success heist.

“Honestly, I’ve done a great job of keeping my Twitch career going. I’m talking the top of Fortnite, to the bottom of the barrel, and hey, we’re still here dude,” he said triumphantly on a September 24 stream.

Myth went from Fortnite star, to rock bottom, to variety king on Twitch.

Myth claimed that while he was at the top of Fortnite, he wasn’t actually good at the game ⁠— everyone else was just bad as they picked up the battle royale. However, it was enough of a base that he could build off, and he even said he “didn’t even have to try.”

“Other streamers had to be pros and actually be good at the game that they play. I was a pro, I was sh*t, and I’m still here baby. I really pulled the f**king lotto card on you b*tches. I don’t know how I did it, I didn’t even have to try.”

He even joked that he still gets people flocking to his stream to say he’s a Fortnite god, which he indulges in, even if only to keep up the “immersion.” However, he couldn’t be any happier with where he landed with streaming.

“I don’t know what it is. Y’all find me funny I don’t know. I’ll still have the occasional ‘Myth you’re good at Fortnite’ ⁠— that’s cap, but I ain’t gonna ruin the immersion, thanks bro. If that’s what you think brother, take it.”

The honorary TSM Valorant “coach” and Among Us pro still ranks in the cash, with nearly 4,000 current subs, and over 5,000 tuning in to his every stream.

He’s doing well for himself where so many fell off, and while he’s grateful for his success, he also realizes it took him a dash of luck too.

Rapper Future has had an incredible career spanning over several decades. In that time, he’s risen through the ranks to become a household name in the rap/hip-hop genres. Now, he’s revealed the latest addition to his garage in the form of this crazy one-off Chevrolet Blazer.

Future – real name Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn – is an American rap artist from Atlanta, Georgia. In his time as a musician, he has amassed a number of awards and released several critically-acclaimed albums and tracks.

With a car collection including Lamborghinis, Rolls-Royces, and Bentleys, he has now revealed his latest addition.

Standing out from his collection of ‘typical’ exotic cars, Future has now taken delivery of his custom-commissioned Chevrolet K5 Blazer truck from renowned tuners RingBrothers.

This fully-restored, one-off build looks absolutely incredible and will stand out among Future’s other ‘stock’ cars. Finished in British Racing Green, this is a color that was not available from factory, and was used only for his personal build.

The exterior has been left mostly stock other than the color change, but the front headlights have been upgraded to LED units. Not only have the headlights been changed, but also the wheels – the stock items being replaced by a set of 18″ gold HRE wheels.

Inside, the car has been completely re-trimmed in brown leather, with a number of embossed logos throughout. The factory analog dials have been refreshed, but a 10″ touchscreen has been fitted to the dash. This is coupled to an uprated JL audio system – a key upgrade for a musician such as Future.

Future unveiled the truck on his Instagram:

Underneath the hood is the biggest upgrade to the car – a complete engine and transmission swap. The stock motor has been ditched for a 6.2l LS3 V8, coupled to an uprated GM automatic transmission. With 430hp on tap, Future will have plenty of fun driving this custom truck around.

RingBrothers co-owner Mike Ring is justifiably proud of the result: “We’re humbled that people continue to come to us for special projects like this.”

“We realize that our customers could get a new Ferrari or Lamborghini but choose us instead. It’s an honor we don’t take lightly, so we put our heart into each project. We’re glad Future appreciates that.”
