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.

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.
