Popular sandbox survival game Fortnite is all the craze these days, and it tripled in enormity on Wednesday night (March 14) thanks to two very unexpected players: Drake and Travis Scott.
Pro-gamer Tyler “Ninja” Blevins hopped online in all-star Fortnite action with the two rap stars as he slashed through a one-on-one match with Drizzy first, then added Travis to the digital party. The OVO boss went by the username “TheBoyDuddus,” while Travis popped up as “cactus_jackk92.” They were also joined by Fortnite newcomer JuJu Smith-Schuster. Twitch, the live streaming video platform of the game, crushed crazy numbers as a result of the gaming session, hitting 630,000 concurrent viewers from the previous 388,000 viewer record on a single-player stream.
And Drizzy, La Flame and Fortnite fans everywhere didn’t miss it for the world (or work and school in the morning).
See how the rap stars kept fans up through wee hours below.
