While reflecting on his time creating content in Los Angeles, during the early days of 100 Thieves, he highlighted one moment in particular that left him frustrated after leaving the org.

Nadeshot and Scooter Braun both appeared on a TechCrunch panel where they were asked about the public feud shortly after it had happened. However, while the 100T founder was hesitant to comment on the matter, Scooter Braun jumped to his defense, accusing Kolcheff of using his platform to spread misinformation.

After detailing the events of the interview and pointing out Braun’s take on the feud, the superstar streamer revealed that he actually confronted the 100 Thieves investor after hearing his comments.

“I told my agent and my manager to get a hold of Scooter, tell him I want to talk to him and I want to talk to him now,” he admitted, "I get on the phone with this f***ing guy and I ask him what the f*** he’s talking about.”

He continued on, revealing more details about his phone call with the entrepreneur: “I remember telling Scooter at one point, ‘when people go up there and lie like that on your name, where I’m from they get slapped in the f***ing mouth’."

NICKMERCS added that he did contribute quite a lot to the early stages of 100 Thieves but was never fully recognized for his efforts, also claiming that Braun was not present for much of the matters that he spoke on, sharing that “he came in way later.”

However, he also admitted that he does not hold any resentment towards Nadeshot for his actions behind the scenes or the public drama that ensued: "Matt was in a tough spot, I've admitted that you know, It was a very difficult spot to be in and I feel for the dude, it was not easy but its part of being of the boss."

It's been a while since all of the 100T-related drama took place, but Nick said that he finally chose to address the situation more in-depth because of constant questions about from his viewers.
