Ninja Attempting to Leave the Lollapalooza Festival Shows How Popular He’s Become

Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins has become nothing short of a mainstream celebrity after his success across 2018 on Twitch and YouTube.

Especially alongside the massive growth and popularity of Fortnite: Battle Royale, Ninja has cemented himself as an icon in the gaming entertainment industry over the course of 2018.

He was invited to participate at the Lollapalooza Music Festival in Chicago, Illinois at the ‘Gaming Lounge’ where he played with high-profile individuals including Logic, All Time Low, Dillon Francis, and more.

Once the third day of the festival came to a close, Ninja attempted to make the walk back to his hotel without getting noticed by wearing a makeshift disguise.

However, after almost reaching his destination without any interference, the Twitch star was eventually met with a massive crowd which required security to escort him through.

 Ninja originally began his campaign in gaming and esports as a professional Halo player for multiple years, but eventually retired from competing in order to pursue content creation full-time – a move which has proved to suit him well.

As the gaming industry continues to grow on a daily basis, only time will tell to determine how large and well-recognized Ninja can become.

Jaden Hossler has been accused of being disrespectful by music producer and former vine star Christian Delgrosso who worked on his first single “Comatose.”

Jaden is popular on TikTok with more than 8 million followers, and a former member of TikTok’s Sway House, but he left the collective in May, alongside Josh Richards, to dedicate more time to his music.

Jaden recently appeared on the podcast Kiss and Tell with Sophie Dossi in which he spoke about how he transitioned from wanting to perform pop music to rock music and how that has made him into the success he is now.

In the interview, Jaden said, “I was like yeah let’s do pop music, but then when it got down to it I was like I hate this, so I came back and I was like let’s make a rock song and they were down for it so we did. Then we made up my first song Comatose.”

But, Christian claimed it was actually his idea that launched Jaden’s career in a video posted online. He said: “Now all of a sudden it was his idea to come in and do a rock song… there were like 5 people in the room during the initial conversation that can attest to me completely changing the direction of his music.

“…I didn’t think that the music we were working on had the same potential as what he could do if he did rock music.”

Christian then went on to explain that Jaden didn’t thank them, or call to check on any of them after.

“Just the respect…If you know that I went out of my way and did that for you. He knows it like hasn’t reached out to me at all, hasn’t ever said thank you to me…And he got his deal because of Comatose, the song that we made for him, the song that everyone was oohing and aahing about. Like at least just be respectful.”

While Jaden is yet to respond, Micheal Gruen, the co-founder of TalentX which represents a large number of TikTok creators, let his feelings be known.

In response to Christian, Micheal commented, “Uhm this is total bullshit. 1) I was in a meeting where you said you don’t care about any credit and only care about Jaden and were looking out for him. Where did that love go?

“2) Go on iTunes and it says you’re a writer on Comatose. Idk, that seems like credit to me. 3) there are standard song splits in place. Did you want a bouquet of flowers with that money? Would that have shown you how amazing you are?”

Despite the bad press, Jaden’s music career is showing no signs of slowing down as his latest single “Tonight” with Iann Dior is released today, October 21.
