Adam ‘Adam22’ Grandmaison, YouTuber and host of popular hip-hop podcast No Jumper, broadcasted himself getting held up at gunpoint in an attempted robbery during a livestream on Sunday, March 17.

Grandmaison is the host of No Jumper, a podcast and YouTube channel that focuses on hip hop and pop culture. Adam22 has been labeled as a ‘SoundCloud rap tastemaker’, regularly featuring artists from the music site on his channel and podcast as they become popular.

He also streams himself and his colleagues watching and listening to music and interacting with fans, and it was during one of these YouTube streams on March 17 that a gunman entered the room he was in demanding money from Grandmaison.

Grandmaison was streaming from one of the back rooms of his onsomeshit store in Los Angeles, California, when a man entered the room and pointed a pistol directly at his head.

“Give me all your fucking money,” yelled the gunman as a clearly shocked Grandmaison attempted to protect himself. “Right now! Do you want to die right now?”

The assailant then moved out of view of camera as Adam22 fell off his chair, with members of Grandmaison’s staff heard saying: “Don’t you ever run up on us with a fucking gun you little bitch” and “I almost fucking shot this fucking dude.” Adam22 then ended the stream, questioning why the gunman didn’t shoot and stating that they were calling the police, with the man knocked unconscious.

Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem then confirmed that the gunman was indeed knocked out, after receiving word from the onsomeshit store that No Jumper bouncers had apprehended the man.

KEEMSTAR posted an image of the suspect on the ground surrounded by members of the Los Angeles Police Department, who had placed him in custody.

Keem also released a video taken at the scene, showing the gunman conscious. Once aware that he was being filmed, the man posed and gave the camera a peace sign, leading to the individual filming to kick him twice.

It appears that there was no injuries inflicted by the gunman, and he is now in police custody after the attempted robbery.

Adam22 has posted on Twitter since the incident, joking that if he had been shot, his last words would have been “something about how Shane Dawson didn’t jizz on a cat.”

We’ll continue to update this story as more information becomes available.

James Charles sparks heated beef with rapper Asian Doll over makeup artist fees

YouTube star and makeup mogul James Charles has started some unexpected beef with rapper Asian Doll after she made a divisive tweet over the price some makeup artists charge for their work.

James Charles is known for getting into the occasional Twitter spat with high-profile celebrities; in August 2020, the YouTuber called out music artist Alicia Keys for her then-unreleased skincare line, which he mistakenly interpreted as another celebrity cash-grab in the makeup biz. (This was not the case.)

Now, it seems that Charles has struck up a feud with none other than Dallas-based rapper Asian Doll — the first female rapper to be signed to Gucci Mane’s very own record label, 1017 Eskimo Records.

It all started over a post Asian Doll made on January 15, where she took issue with makeup artists charging hefty fees for their services.

“If you charge over $150 to do a face of makeup, you can go to hell, respectfully,” she wrote.

Charles was quick to clap back: “What a stupid tweet. One foundation can cost $50, artists have to buy EVERY SHADE for their kit, & thats just the first step…Either pay an artist’s rate for their time & skill, do it yourself, OR get it done at a counter and risk looking busted.”

It seems that Charles’ reply has sparked an avalanche of backlash against him from Asian Doll’s fans, with many accusing him of overstepping his bounds.

Charles has apparently messed with the wrong rapper, as Asian Doll was also quick to fire shots at the beauty guru in a series of additional tweets.

“What a dumb a** to be in my business replying to something that has absolutely nothing to do with you. I’m having a debate about HOOD PRICES baby, stay over there in HOLLYWOOD where they having you looking GHOST,” she wrote — most likely referring to the infamous photo of James Charles wearing foundation several shades lighter than his natural skin tone.

“Literally stop robbing the poor,” the rapper added in a now-deleted reply. “All I’m saying is people shouldn’t have to pay over $150 for a face, DATS IT!”

It seems that Asian Doll’s post has stirred up quite the debate regarding the value and pricing of makeup artists’ time and work in her comments section — but James’ involvement in the conversation has sparked another kind of conversation, altogether.
