Popular Fortnite Battle Royale streamer Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff has dropped an absolute bombshell for his fanbase by announcing that he has left 100 Thieves, effective immediately. 

NICKMERCS had previously hinted on March 10 that he was considering the possibility of leaving the esports organization, suggesting that he was looking for a move back to Michigan – after being based in Los Angeles, California with other members of the org. 


The gamer has represented Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag’s brand for three years, since first joining in 2016, but has now confirmed that he’s going back home. 

TWITTER:NICKMERCSNICKMERCS will presumably continue to stream Fortnite Battle Royale, but not under the 100 Thieves name.

The streamer has posted an official statement on the matter to his Twitter account, explaining the reason behind the decision. 


“So excited for this next chapter- I’ve got everything I need: the friends, the family, and the MFAM,” he tweeted on May 24. “We’ve laid down the foundation for the future and I’m thankful for every one of you that has been part of the journey back home from Michigan.”

He continued: “We’re back to business as usual today and, for me, that means continuing to work to be happy, to take care of myself and take care of those that matter the most to me and my happiness.”

“With that, I am moving onto the next chapter of my life and have decided that I will no longer be a member of 100 Thieves, effective immediately. 


100 Thieves have issued a response to the news, too, thanking the player for being an “integral” part of their team – wishing him the best in his future endeavours. 

Kolcheff claims to have grown up a lot during his time in the ‘City of Angels’ but clearly feels more comfortable around his old friends and family at home. He has now branched off from 100 Thieves.

Drake needs no introduction. As one of the biggest names in rap music across the globe, the star has amassed a net worth of over $150 million. Not only is his net worth insane, but so is his car collection.

Canadian musician Drake – real name Aubrey – is one of the best-known names in rap music. With a ridiculous number of awards to his name, he has become an almost permanent fixture on mainstream music charts. As you may imagine, his success had led to him building up quite the car collection.


Reportedly, the total value of his current car collection is worth nearly eight-figures. With his continued success, it is likely that he will break this barrier within the next few years if all goes well.

Drake’s car collection is the stuff of dream for even die-hard car collectors.

Drake’s insane car collection 2020

Drake is a big fan of British supercar makers McLaren, and has a number of their cars in his fleet. One of his personal favorites is his white McLaren 675LT. Costing upwards of $338,000 the 675LT is one of McLaren’s most ‘hardcore’ cars ever, with 666hp from its twin-turbo V8 engine.

His Lamborghini Aventador is a special edition LP 700-4 model.

Not one to go with ‘basic’ versions of cars, Drake purchased a limited-edition Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4. With 700hp on tap, this Lambo will do 0-60 in under 3 seconds, and cost Drake a cool $400,000. Drake has also previously said the car “makes him feel like Christian Bale (in Batman)” when behind the wheel.

Swapping performance for all-out luxury, Drake owns one of the plushest cars money can buy – a Mercedes Pullman. Typically used by royal families and government officials, this high-class Merc is perfect for whisking Drake around in absolute luxury. It doesn’t come cheap, however, retailing at over $600k.

Opting for a one-off car is a great way to ‘flex’ your wealth, and that’s exactly what Drake has done with his $700k+ Mansory Bushukan Phantom. Featuring a custom design, along with a solid gold OVO hood ornament in place of the RR ‘spirit of ecstasy’ the Phantom is perfect for ultra-plush travel.


Drake’s incredible hypercar collection

In terms of hypercars, his collection is as crazy as you’d imagine. His Bugatti Veyron Sang Noir is one of only 12 in the world, and cost a whopping $2,000,000. Drake also has a LaFerrari in Yellow, which likely set him back around $1.5-$2 million.

If you thought the Bugatti was wild, the crown of Drake’s collection will blow you away. He has reportedly bought one of the world’s first Devel Sixteen hypercars. With an alleged 5000hp from its 12.3l, V16 engine, it is one of the rarest cars in the world, costing $2,200,000.

Drake’s custom private jet

Of course, we can’t forget his custom Boeing 767 private jet, but that won’t fit in a garage, so we’ve excluded it from the list.


All told, Drake’s car collection is currently sitting around the $8 million mark, if reports are to be believed. Who knows where it will sit in a few years time.
