The NELK Boys might be known for their pranks and shenanigans, but Steve ‘SteveWillDoIt’ Leonardis has been making a name for himself as a more charitable YouTuber — as evidenced when he handed out free PlayStation 5 consoles to unsuspecting strangers.

In the past few months, we’ve seen Steve constantly trying to help people in need, or give out gifts to friends and strangers alike. He set up a homeless man with a new apartment and job, as well as surprising fellow NELK member Kyle Forgeard with a $135k 2021 Audi RS7.

Now, anyone who tried getting the next-gen console when they released will know how difficult it was to get your hands on them, but lucky for some, SteveWillDoIt was on hand.

After securing several consoles, the YouTuber took to the streets to give them away, leaving a number of strangers absolutely shocked.

Steve and Kyle have helped propel NELK to new heights in 2020.

Steve got himself five PS5 consoles to give away to random strangers that he found while traversing the streets, with no real criteria behind who he was looking for.

Instead, it just happened to be people in the right place at the right time. One fan came out and saw him and, as it was their birthday, Steve decided to hand him a brand new PS5.

On top of the birthday boy, Steve also gave away a PS5 to the likes of a Best Buy employee who had been unable to get one, as well as a lucky fan who randomly drove past and called his name, making it one of the best fan experiences you’ll see on YouTube.

It goes without saying that as of late, any fan that runs into Steve when out and about has hit the jackpot.

He’s made a big effort to give back to those around him and do a little good for the community here and there, even referring to himself as “the cool Mr Beast,” who’s a great role model to have when it comes to YouTube, so expect to see more like this in the future.

James Charles sparks heated beef with rapper Asian Doll over makeup artist fees

YouTube star and makeup mogul James Charles has started some unexpected beef with rapper Asian Doll after she made a divisive tweet over the price some makeup artists charge for their work.

James Charles is known for getting into the occasional Twitter spat with high-profile celebrities; in August 2020, the YouTuber called out music artist Alicia Keys for her then-unreleased skincare line, which he mistakenly interpreted as another celebrity cash-grab in the makeup biz. (This was not the case.)

Now, it seems that Charles has struck up a feud with none other than Dallas-based rapper Asian Doll — the first female rapper to be signed to Gucci Mane’s very own record label, 1017 Eskimo Records.

It all started over a post Asian Doll made on January 15, where she took issue with makeup artists charging hefty fees for their services.

“If you charge over $150 to do a face of makeup, you can go to hell, respectfully,” she wrote.

Charles was quick to clap back: “What a stupid tweet. One foundation can cost $50, artists have to buy EVERY SHADE for their kit, & thats just the first step…Either pay an artist’s rate for their time & skill, do it yourself, OR get it done at a counter and risk looking busted.”

It seems that Charles’ reply has sparked an avalanche of backlash against him from Asian Doll’s fans, with many accusing him of overstepping his bounds.

Charles has apparently messed with the wrong rapper, as Asian Doll was also quick to fire shots at the beauty guru in a series of additional tweets.

“What a dumb a** to be in my business replying to something that has absolutely nothing to do with you. I’m having a debate about HOOD PRICES baby, stay over there in HOLLYWOOD where they having you looking GHOST,” she wrote — most likely referring to the infamous photo of James Charles wearing foundation several shades lighter than his natural skin tone.

“Literally stop robbing the poor,” the rapper added in a now-deleted reply. “All I’m saying is people shouldn’t have to pay over $150 for a face, DATS IT!”

It seems that Asian Doll’s post has stirred up quite the debate regarding the value and pricing of makeup artists’ time and work in her comments section — but James’ involvement in the conversation has sparked another kind of conversation, altogether.
