Fortnite Battle Royale on Twitch, though he has been dabbling in Call of Duty since the October 2019 release of Modern Warfare.

On top of his gaming ability, we regularly see Hamlinz freestyle rapping, casually dropping bars off the top of his head during his more laid-back sessions, and it’s always entertaining, mostly with a comedic edge to it that not only showcases his talent but his humor too.

Hamlinz/TwitterHamlinz (right) has amassed over 2 million followers on Twitch.

During a stream on November 6, Hamlinz got going again and it’s fair to say he absolutely killed it with some of the bars he produced.

Starting off slow, Hamlinz says “I’m well-spoken, I beat my d*ck when I was 12 with the lotion”, continuing in a similar vein, seemingly nostalgic in what he was rapping about.

Then, when the map started and he got going again, it just kept getting better.

WARNING: Strong language

Carrying on, Hamlinz switched up his flow and came out with classic lines such as “b*tch you ‘bout to get pumped with the 725, if you use that you a f*ckin’ chump,” and “back to the lobby by a shotty, I don’t even give a sh*t.”

The full clip is well worth the watch and shows that Hamlinz is clearly a talented freestyler so who knows – maybe he’s got a career in music in his future after streaming.

Hamlinz wouldn’t be the first content creator to step into the music scene – Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji famously recorded several rap tracks throughout 2017 and 2018, while PewDiePie has taken a more lighthearted approach with his musical creations.

In fact, a recent study suggests the top streamers and YouTubers are actually more popular than some major music stars. That’s 2019 for you.

Popular influencer Logan Paul was left stunned when YouTube artist Vexx sent him a Pokemon Trading Card Game item that is almost as tall as a house. 

In 2020, Logan Paul’s self-proclaimed love of Pokemon helped kick off a TCG craze that swept over sites like YouTube and Twitch. He spent thousands upon thousands on rare cards and booster packs.

In January, the Nintendo mega-fan was left floored when an artist surprised him with a one-of-a-kind collectible that no one else has.

Logan Paul owns “world’s largest Pokemon card”

Logan Paul’s love for the Game Freak RPG runs deep as the star was even willing to fly to Las Vegas and drop $500k on a 1st Edition Charizard card. However, recently the 25-year-old received one TCG item that is priceless from YouTuber Vexx.

In his January 17 upload, the artist exclaimed “This is going to be the world’s biggest Pokemon card ever!” while revealing his custom Pokemon card to weigh 75kg/165 pounds. Vexx then showed viewers how he made the gigantic art piece which features Gen I ‘mon Charizard and Squirtle.

Paul’s jaw dropped open after the card arrived at his house, before shouting,”Whoa. What the fuck. This is sick!” The influencer then was blown away by how accurate the art piece details were.”This is sick. He murdered it. This is very very very impressive.”

While the 25-year-old said he could “no longer spend money” on cards in 2020, the star teased his return to collecting in a January 17 tweet after reacting to a 1999 Base Set booster box selling for $408k. “This is insane. the price more than doubled since i bought mine last year… gets me so excited for my next box break,” he tweeted.

Despite his insane collection of Pokemon merchandise, Logan Paul confessed that the giant card was one of the best things he’s ever owned: “We are all obsessed with this piece. It’s probably the coolest piece of Pokemon art I own. It’s beautiful! I love this so much.”

Technically, Vexx’s custom art piece is not an official TCG collectible. Though it really does look like a Pokemon card as it gets every little detail right. Plus it truly is a one-of-a-kind Charizard item that any fan would love to have.
