As livestreaming platforms like Twitch continue to grow in popularity, so do their content creators, with some streamers going to insane lengths to provide unique entertainment for their audiences.

While he doesn’t engage in any dangerous IRL stunts or shocking practical jokes, popular streamer Kristofer Yee unleashed his creativity in a different way – by creating a catchy (and hilarious) rap about his love for 2-D anime waifus.

While he is better known for his budget PC building, gaming, and tech videos, Yee is also quite the comedian, writing up his rap to humorously “call out” anime fans.

YouTuber and Twitch streamer Kristofer Yee wrote up a hilarious rap “calling out” anime fans, in preparation for his participation at Streamer Camp 2019.

“If you’re a weeb, you’re about to get called out,” Yee said before jumping into the bars. “There’s only one thing I want in the entire world / It’s a 2-D UWU anime girl / My figurines are lit, you can call me a weeb / But real girls can’t satisfy all my needs.”

Yee’s hilarious rap came to an equally gut-busting conclusion, where he made a good-natured jab at Twitch’s terms of service to end the song.

“If y’all are feeling this rap, show us the bitties,” Yee continued. “Cheer 100, if you like anime titti…TOS!”

Yee’s rap was made in preparation for Streamer Camp 2019, a live event that pits eight Twitch streamers against one another and is hosted by popular Fortnite Battle Royale player Valkyrae, among other top personalities on the platform.

Yee’s video submission for the camp made waves throughout the community, as it gave viewers an emotional look into his beginnings in online content creation and his journey to Twitch and YouTube notoriety.

The video ended with Yee using his adsense money to pay off a hospital bill, later going up to a room to check up on his father – ultimately earning him a spot in Streamer Camp due to what some labeled the “saddest submission” for the event.

While Yee is a popular Twitch streamer, he likewise has a massive audience on YouTube due to his humorous tech and PC building videos, boasting over 269,000 subscribers on the platform as of June 2.

Twitch star Jake “Jake’n’Bake” Abramson has revealed he could be “in danger of losing everything” he’s built on his channel after an old IRL clip from more than two years ago was hit with a DMCA copyright strike due to a Kanye West song.

The ongoing Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) drama sweeping across Twitch has spared no one from its reach. The new Twitch crackdown, which sees streamers pinged for licensed music on broadcasts, is the hot topic in the community right now.

One by one, Twitch’s biggest stars have been sucked into the DMCA drama; Imane “Pokimane” Anys was forced to delete her streaming back-catalog last week, and Michael “shroud” Grzesiek has called for stars to “unite” against the crackdown.

DragonForce’s Herman Li was also banned after DMCA flagged his own music.

Jake’n’Bake has become the latest Twitch streamer caught up in the DMCA drama.

Now, the latest star to find himself on the DMCA frontlines is Jake’n’Bake. The 30-year-old IRL star is one of the Amazon-owned platform’s biggest stars. He boasts nearly 500k followers, but that may now be in danger.

Jake’n’Bake revealed on Oct. 29 that he had been hit with a copyright infringement from Twitch. The kicker? The clip in question was from a May 9 stream all the way back in 2018, which contained just mere seconds of Kanye West’s ‘Lift Yourself.’

Jake’n’Bake gets DMCA strike for old Twitch clip

“Just to be clear… this is a 30-second clip from two and a half years ago,” Abramson wrote on Twitter soon after receiving the DMCA email.

The Twitch email detailed a “claimed infringement” on Jake’n’Bake’s old 2018 broadcast, where moments of the Kanye West song can be heard. The email warned JakeNBake could have his channel “terminated” if another offense is uncovered.

“It was from an outdoor IRL stream. I probably passed by a shop, or was in a place that was playing the song in the background… I’m now in danger of losing everything,” the Twitch star continued. “How is this even realistic?”

Jake’n’Bake, who admitted on-stream soon after that Twitch is “80% of his life,” is now rushing to download and clear his video back-catalog — 13,00 past VODS worth — in an effort to avoid that next promised DMCA strike.

“The biggest thing for me, and I think a lot of people are the same, because my stuff is IRL, there’s like three years of home videos. I love that they’re all in one place, and accessible,” he explained.

“It’s not like I just played games… for me, it’s like, in my heart, all these memories, and experiences. It’s disappointing because it just got a bit more real.”

“My fear is if I counter-ping this, and it chimes like a little ‘tick’, and some computer just turns at me and goes through everything like ‘f*ck you, f*ck you, f*ck you’… and starts pinging me for everything I’ve done! Maybe I should just delete everything so that can’t get me.”

He added later, “It’s kind of nuts how this is just controlling my life now. This was two and a half years ago! I don’t really know what to do except delete everything, which just sucks. There’s nothing else I can really do.”

The DMCA drama, unfortunately, looks set to continue into the foreseeable future on Twitch, with the platform sticking to their guns on the copyright stance.

We can layout the big names hit by the wave so far ⁠— Courage, BrookeAB, Scump, Ninja, Sonii, Mongraal, Lirik… the list goes on ⁠— and there’ll likely be more caught in the crackdown soon. Twitch has yet to comment on the most recent strikes.
