Superstar streamer Nick ‘NICKMERCS‘ Kolcheff has revealed more details about his falling out with 100 Thieves CEO Matt ‘Nadeshot‘ Haag, with the help of YouTuber Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR‘ Keem.

Nearly a week has passed since NICKMERCS abruptly announced his departure from 100 Thieves, claiming that Nadeshot had not fulfilled the promises he had made to him when he first joined the organization back in 2016.

On May 29, KEEMSTAR tweeted out a rumor about exactly what Nadeshot had promised Nick, and it apparently involved an ownership stake in the org.

“Rumor is Nadeshot offered NICKMERS 5% of 100 Thieves but never paid up!” Keem tweeted. “YIKES!”

It took only a matter of hours for that rumor to go from plain hearsay to a much more solidified claim, as Nick himself commented on Keem’s tweet and confirmed its validity. 

“Ain’t no rumor homie,” he replied. “Is what it is.”

If what KEEMSTAR and NICKMERCS are saying is true, then the 5% stake that Nadeshot had offered early on would have grown exponentially in value over the years that Nick had been a member, considering that 100 Thieves became a major powerhouse in esports during that span. 

Nick has already claimed multiple times that he did not receive “a dime” in his first two years with 100 Thieves, but continued to trust that he would ultimately be given what he was due.

As for the other side of the story, Nadeshot has already said that he is “not going to make a comment or statement on the situation at hand.” However, that was before Nick posted the reply on Twitter, so there’s a chance that the 100T CEO could change his stance.

We have reached out to 100 Thieves for a comment on these claims, and we are currently waiting on a response. 

Nadeshot - YouTubeNICKMERCS moved out to Los Angeles to be close to Nadeshot and 100 Thieves, before moving back to Michigan in May 2018.

Shortly after Nick’s tweet, esports insider Rod ‘Slasher’ Breslau posted that he had spoken to Nick, who had told him the he and Nadeshot had a verbal agreement that he would get 5% equity in the company, but his stake ended up being “substantially less” once the organization received its massive investments.

According to Forbes, 100 Thieves is currently valued at between $90-100 million, which means that Nick’s share would currently have a value close to $5 million. 

NICKMERCS vs Nadeshot – what’s gone down so far

The esports world was sent into shock on May 25 when NICKMERCS said he wants “nothing to do with” Nadeshot, a day after his unexpected departure from 100 Thieves.

As expected, Nick’s comments drew reactions from a lot of people, including OpTic Gaming CEO Hector ‘H3CZ‘ Rodriguez, who said he was siding with Nadeshot during his podcast, calling the 100T CEO honorable for keeping things behind closed doors.

These comments did not sit well with Nick, who hit back at H3CZ live on stream, questioning his decision to say what he said about Nick on his podcast.

We will, of course, continue to bring you the latest on this continually unfolding saga as more information becomes available.

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.”
