Fans of TSM Daequan and TSM Hamlinz have been left wondering where the creators have gone yet again, following weeks of social media silence and no streams, and not for the first time. 

Hamlinz and Daequan became massive names on Twitch largely as a result of their impressive Fortnite skills and entertaining personalities. The pair were originally both competitors, but moved away from esports and more into the world of content creation.

The pair’s sense of humor and natural charisma in front of camera saw them shoot to the top of Twitch. SocialBlade currently has Daequan’s channel currently sitting at over 3.7 million followers, while Hamlinz boasts 2.1 million.

Where are TSM Daequan and Hamlinz?

Despite these massive channels, both men have been somewhat missing in action since mid March, on both Twitch and YouTube. The last tweet from Hamlinz’ account was on March 18, while Daequan’s Twitter hasn’t been active since March 19.

Similarly, Daequan has not streamed in nearly a month, since he first hopped on some Call of Duty: Warzone. Hamlinz’ last stream came on March 17.

Daequan has, in the past, taken significant streaming breaks in the past as a result of ill health. He has also stepped away in order to support his girlfriend, who has struggled with health issues of her own.

However, it now looks like the ongoing global health crisis has worsened his situation. In a March tweet, he explained that his girlfriend was struggling to get back into the USA because of travel bans and other restrictions. He described her as “like my personal manager”.

It’s not necessarily clear whether this situation was resolved or not, but travel restrictions have only tightened since the tweet was posted.

Hamlinz, like Daequan, has also taken multiple breaks due to ill health and personal issues. He has spoken out in the past about cyst-related health issues, as well as taking time off to process the passing of family members. However, Hamlinz has not given any hints as to the reason for his ongoing absence.

Neither of the streaming pair have explained their most recent absences.

When will Hamlinz and Daequan return?

At the moment, there has been no hints from either man, or their organization TSM, about a possible return. Also, if both men are reducing their use of social media it becomes less and less likely that we’ll get an official return date anytime soon.

In the past, their breaks have lasted anywhere from a couple of weeks to over six months, so we can only hope this is a shorter break this time.

The struggle of daily content creation can often become difficult to keep up with, as well as the mental strain of having thousands of viewers expecting regular streams. We wish both of them the best and hope to see a return to gaming and streaming soon.

Drake needs no introduction. As one of the biggest names in rap music across the globe, the star has amassed a net worth of over $150 million. Not only is his net worth insane, but so is his car collection.

Canadian musician Drake – real name Aubrey – is one of the best-known names in rap music. With a ridiculous number of awards to his name, he has become an almost permanent fixture on mainstream music charts. As you may imagine, his success had led to him building up quite the car collection.

Reportedly, the total value of his current car collection is worth nearly eight-figures. With his continued success, it is likely that he will break this barrier within the next few years if all goes well.

Drake is a big fan of British supercar makers McLaren, and has a number of their cars in his fleet. One of his personal favorites is his white McLaren 675LT. Costing upwards of $338,000 the 675LT is one of McLaren’s most ‘hardcore’ cars ever, with 666hp from its twin-turbo V8 engine.

Not one to go with ‘basic’ versions of cars, Drake purchased a limited-edition Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4. With 700hp on tap, this Lambo will do 0-60 in under 3 seconds, and cost Drake a cool $400,000. Drake has also previously said the car “makes him feel like Christian Bale (in Batman)” when behind the wheel.

Swapping performance for all-out luxury, Drake owns one of the plushest cars money can buy – a Mercedes Pullman. Typically used by royal families and government officials, this high-class Merc is perfect for whisking Drake around in absolute luxury. It doesn’t come cheap, however, retailing at over $600k.

Opting for a one-off car is a great way to ‘flex’ your wealth, and that’s exactly what Drake has done with his $700k+ Mansory Bushukan Phantom. Featuring a custom design, along with a solid gold OVO hood ornament in place of the RR ‘spirit of ecstasy’ the Phantom is perfect for ultra-plush travel.

Drake’s incredible hypercar collection

In terms of hypercars, his collection is as crazy as you’d imagine. His Bugatti Veyron Sang Noir is one of only 12 in the world, and cost a whopping $2,000,000. Drake also has a LaFerrari in Yellow, which likely set him back around $1.5-$2 million.

If you thought the Bugatti was wild, the crown of Drake’s collection will blow you away. He has reportedly bought one of the world’s first Devel Sixteen hypercars. With an alleged 5000hp from its 12.3l, V16 engine, it is one of the rarest cars in the world, costing $2,200,000.

Drake’s custom private jet

Of course, we can’t forget his custom Boeing 767 private jet, but that won’t fit in a garage, so we’ve excluded it from the list.

All told, Drake’s car collection is currently sitting around the $8 million mark, if reports are to be believed. Who knows where it will sit in a few years time.
