Popular live streamer Tyler “Ninja” Blevins has dropped a hint on his Twitch stream that he may be teaming up with Rap superstar Drake, and fans believe he may be playing some Fortnite with him live on stream.
Ninja has dominated the Amazon owned streaming platform Twitch, and has had a meteoric rise to become the most subscribed and followed channel on the site, regularly attracting around 100,000 concurrent viewers to his stream.
We recently reported the news that Drake had followed Ninja on his instagram page, and his reaction, but it looks like Drake might be a bigger Fortnite: Battle Royale and Ninja fan than expected.
Ninja has dropped a number of teasing hints that he and Drake, real name Aubrey Graham, will be teaming up, and playing duo games – which Ninja would undoubtedly stream.
If it were to go down – and it looks very likely that it will – it would likely take over the Twitch website, and it wouldn’t be surprising if it challenged some of the concurrent viewer records set by past streamers, especially if Drake himself promoted the partnership.
When asked by a viewer if the rumors were true, Ninja made it clear in no uncertain terms that it was likely.
“I will tweet about it so you don’t miss it. I’m going to wait for [Drake] to text me if he is getting on tonight. If he’s going to get on tonight, I’ll tweet it out. If he’s not going to get on tonight, I’ll get confirmation that it is going to be tomorrow so I can hype it up – if he’s ok with that.”
He had got the rumors swirling with this moment earlier in his stream, where he was much more cryptic. He began playing Drake’s classic hit song “Best I Ever Had”.
“Ok, So I’m going to do a little teaser. I’m not going to say anything, but this is just a teaser of something that might happen, alright guys?
This is the only hint I’m giving, alright. [Music starts] Let your mind wander.”
