Popular Fortnite Battle Royale star Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins is no stranger to fame, having broadcasted with rapper Drake, and now, YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg – who asked a hilarious question of Ninja during their stint in KEEMSTAR’s Friday Fortnite tournament.

Both Ninja and PewDiePie teamed up for the return of KEEMSTAR’s Friday Fortnite tournament series, a massively popular competitive project that took a sudden hiatus due to scheduling conflicts with Epic’s Summer Skirmish series in 2018.

However, KEEMSTAR’s tournament has since made its grand return, seeing major faces in online entertainment participating in the fray – which resulted in a hilarious interaction between PewDiePie and Ninja, in the process.

Ninja, TwitchPewDiePie wanted to know who was the better gamer between himself and Drake – to which Ninja gave a hilarious answer.

Ninja was in the middle of gathering materials in a game when PewDiePie presented him with a humorous question, asking if he or Drake were the better gamer, between the two of them.

“Whos the better gamer, me or Drake?” PewDiePie asked. “Come on, let’s hear it.”

Ninja laughed in response to Kjellberg’s query, admitting that Drake was the more skilled gamer – which prompted an incredulous response from the Swede.

“Don’t fucking embarrass me,” PewDiePie joked. “Fuck off. …I resurrected you!”

Ninja added to the hilarity by mimicking rapper Soulja Boy’s infamous “Draaaake?” line from the ‘Breakfast Club’ podcast as PewDiePie continued his tirade.

Despite his views on Kjellberg’s gaming skills, Ninja joked that Drake “couldn’t touch” PewDiePie’s T-Series diss tracks, which were ultimately banned in India amidst his vicious YouTube battle with Bollywood label T-Series in early April.

Ninja and PewDiePie’s collaboration in Friday Fortnite saw hilarious reactions from personalities across Twitter, with the likes of 100 Thieves’ Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop joking that PewDiePie was “carrying” Ninja in their game.

Unfortunately, the duo were knocked into the Losers’ bracket by Fortnite pros TSM Myth and Team Liquid’s Poach, forcing PewDiePie to bow out of the tournament due to the ensuing length of breaks between matches – setting the stage for last-minute rule change that allowed TimTheTatMan to sub for PewDiePie to keep Ninja in the runnings.

Friday Fortnite has reportedly seen mass viewership across the board, with Twitch’s chat even reportedly crashing due to the number of fans tuning into the action.

The series will make a return on June 14, with controversial YouTube stars Logan Paul and KSI taking their rivalry to the digital realm ahead of their boxing rematch in November 2019.

Joe Rogan questions Kanye’s “calling to be leader of the free world”

Kanye West sat down for one of the most anticipated interviews of the year on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast, where he explained why he’s got a “calling to be the leader of the free world.”

Kanye West is most known for being a famous rapper and entrepreneureur, but the musician is also a top-level fashion designer, architect, and, of course, a 2020 presidential candidate.

While he first announced his political ambitions at the 2015 MTV Awards, West has now revealed that it actually started while he was in deep thought during a shower.

“It hit me in the shower, and when I first thought of it I just started like, laughing to myself,” Kanye said. “Some people in the music industry, some tech elites, they just took it as a joke. I remember running into Oprah like two days after that and she’s like ‘you don’t want to be president.’”

According to the rapper, despite Oprah’s doubts, the outcome of the 2016 United States presidential election further encouraged him to pursue the highest office in the land as a political outsider.

“I believe that my calling is to be the leader of the free world,” Kanye told Rogan, dead serious. “If it’s in God’s plan that part of my path is to be the governor [of California] first, then that’s fine, but my calling is to be the leader of the free world.”

Rogan was definitely intrigued by what Ye referred to as his “calling,” but thoroughly questioned what the star would really change or be different than politicians before him.

“So when you say this, when you say your calling is to be the leader of the free world, what does that mean to you?” the host replied. “What would be different about the way you would handle things if that’s your plan, why is that your calling? Like, what would you do as the leader of the free world?”

Kanye might not be on the ballot in every state, but that’s not going to stop him from running.

“There couldn’t be a better time to put a visionary in the captain’s chair,” Kanye argued back, in one of his more memorable quotes from the show. “I manifest, I see things, I’m a great leader because I listen, and I’m empathetic, I feel the entire Earth, and I feel us as a species, as the human race.”

The interview is a marathon at just under three hours long all stemming from this initial exchange, so if you want to hear the Yeezy founder talk all about his plans, ideas, and visions for the future, all along with what he would do as the leader of the free world, there is plenty here to go off of.

After initially canceling the interview because a member of his staff fell ill, Rogan and West managed to reschedule and it’s a good thing they did because after watching this, it definitely feels like we’ve been granted a very rare look inside the mind of Kanye like never before.
