It was something special to watch as Drake offered his last med-kit to Ninja and the chat erupted into "God's plan" spam. The stream registered more than 600,000 viewers at times, with Kim Dotcom joining the pair at one point.
Signing on as TheBoyDuddus, Drake formed a team with the professional gamer Tyler Blevins, who goes by Ninja and has the largest audience on Twitch, with 3.4 million followers. How we know, Ninja asked him how long he has been playing the game and he replied a month or two. They were also later joined by rapper Travis Scott and Steelers Wide Reciever JuJu Smith-Schuster. What a team. What a superb collection of talent.
The previous Twitch streaming record belonged to "Dr. Disrespect", with 388,000 concurrent views. I reached out to Twitch and Ninja for more exact numbers, but the former does not comment on sub numbers, and the latter did not respond as of writing. Dropped into the map with very few resources, players are forced to scavenge, kill, and build their way to becoming the last person standing.

Sherman is 'Vengeful' Towards Seahawks
Seattle, interestingly enough, wanted the first right of refusal on any offer, and so Sherman called Seahawks GM John Schneider. Defensive coordinator Robert Saleh, who already knew Sherman from his time as a defensive assistant in Seattle, joined them .
What's particularly cool about this stream is that they're showing off one of Fortnite's coolest features, especially when the game comes to mobile: cross-platform multiplayer.
But the version Drake and Ninja played was Fortnite Battle Royale, which is completely free to play. As in Drake the extremely famous musician, not a male duck. In late January rapper and cannabis connoisseur Snoop Dogg (Doggydogg20 on Twitch) spent the better part of an afternoon smoking a blunt and streaming SOS, a survival-focused game that's now in early access.
It's safe to say that a more eclectic bunch of people may never play Fortnite again. According to TMZ, Fortnite's planning to have a celebrity "Party Royale" game with hundred players split between fifty celebrities and fifty pro gamers.
