Streamer for TSM, Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani, has revealed the hilarious advice Tyler ‘tyler1’ Steinkamp gave him, regarding how to “blow up” on Twitch. 

TSM Myth is best known for his Fortnite Battle Royale talents, previously competing professionally for TSM. He has now transitioned to streaming other games alongside Fortnite Chapter 2, including Modern Warfare

He experienced his most significant surge in followers as Fortnite grew, and is now one of the most followed Twitch streamers in the world. However, he was apparently given some brilliant advice by League of Legends streamer tyler1, on how to grow exponentially on the streaming platform. 

MythMyth’s impressions have gone down well in the past.

In a clip from SlikeR’s stream, Myth can be heard recalling the hilarious encounter, which took place at TwitchCon in 2017.

Attended by 50,000 people, TwitchCon 2017 took place from October 20 to 22, at the Long Beach Convention Center in California. Fortnite Battle Royale was released the month before so Myth was just beginning to explode on Twitch. 

“Tyler was outside waiting for Macaiyla to go to a party I think,” Myth explains. “I was sitting out there and I came up to him… I got a question. ‘If you’re up and coming on Twitch – you’re playing a game and you’re pretty good at it, what’s the best way to blow up?”

Myth then launches into a hilarious impression of Steinkamp to convey his response: “Eh listen man. F**k it, just f**king stream snipe the biggest streamer in the directory. Just f**king do it and you’ll blow up.”

Myth said that he took this advice and killed Jaryd ‘summit1g’ Lazar three times, which apparently helped his growth, although it’s likely he’s partially joking about that.

Despite Macaiyla arguing that Tyler sounds nothing like Myth’s impression, SlikeR and his watching audience were chuckling at the accuracy of it. 

Myth compounded this apparent advice with impressive Fortnite gameplay, seeing him grow to have upwards of 5.5 million followers on the streaming platform, as of November 2019.

Stream sniping is the act of deliberately targeting a streamer in-game – often to garner attention or to sabotage their gameplay. 

While generally looked down upon in the gaming community, Steinkamp’s advice shouldn’t be taken seriously, but it is a hilarious anecdote for Myth to recount.

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.”
