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.

Twitch streamer confronts DoorDash driver after console war trash talk

Console wars are nothing new to video game enthusiasts. From schoolyard debates to forum threads 500 pages deep, console loyalists have fought tooth and nail since the dawn of time. Now, the battleground has shifted with even DoorDash drivers getting in on the action against customers.

During a Twitch broadcast, streamer Jameskii was playing Minecraft while waiting for DoorDash to deliver his order. Suddenly, he received a text message on his phone.

“Hold on, is my drink here?” he wondered as he grabbed his mobile device. “Oh my God! Oh my God!”

As the streamer stared down at his phone, he could hardly contain his disbelief at the message he received from the driver.

“My food delivery guy just messaged me ‘Xbox is trash as f**k,” he laughed. “I’m not kidding. My f**king DoorDash just messaged me. It says, ‘Hello, DoorDash has arrived with your order’ and the next message is ‘Xbox is trash as f**k.’”

As it turns out, the driver actually tried to call the streamer, but when Jameskii didn’t pick up, he felt the need to trash talk Xbox.

Despite all this confusion and the out of context attack on Microsoft’s console, Jameskii wondered if he should call the driver back.

“Say yeah, PlayStation is better, woo!” his friend suggested as the streamer began to redial the number.

Eventually, someone on the other end picked up. “Alright, what did you say about Xbox?” Jameskii asked point-blank.

After a few moments of silence, the driver doubled down on his earlier comment and shouted, “F**k Xbox!”

The remark had the streamer in stitches and made him burst out laughing at the absurdity of the whole situation.

While console wars have a long history dating beyond even the 90s when Nintendo and Sega duked it out, it’s unlikely that the phenomenon ever reached a point where delivery drivers partake. It just goes to show that we’re living in a strange timeline.
