While you were asleep, Drake and Ninja took Twitch by storm

Fortnite streamer Ninja and rapper Drake break Twitch concurrent records

Ninja recently exploded on the Twitch scene in the last month thanks to his skills in the game and the popularity of Epic Games' 100-player battle royale game.

Among Drake's revelations to Ninja, were several juicy tidbits.

And yes, it's the Drake. He's a former competitive Halo player who now stands to make hundreds of thousands of dollars a monthby streaming on Twitch. That's an impressive accomplishment by any means. That game has also become extremely popular, very quickly.

Drake wondering how JuJu has enough time to be a football player and be into gaming so heavily.

Tyler "Ninja" Blevin is a former professional Halo player who made a decision to turn his attention to streaming battle royale games in 2017. That view count increased dramatically last night, with his stream with Drake peaking at around 600,000 concurrent viewers. If that didn't rocket Fortnite way out in front of its main competitor in the blazing hot battle royale video game genre, nothing will. Too incredible. I'm not sure if there's anything that could top it, but I'm sure he's going to try.

Like Drake, Smith-Schuster is an avid gamer and that he revealed during the stream that he has played the game on many nights in the studio. Well, it turns out he's a fan and regular viewer of Ninja's streams. That the record has nearly doubled in just a few weeks is a testament to the mainstream appeal of something like Fortnite. The rapper, being an avid Instagram user, found Instagram clips of Ninja, and followed his account. "@ninja @drake I'm online let's go", Yachty tweeted.

Naturally, the game has already been meme-d to death.

The game also offers cross-play between people on different platforms so even if your friend is on a PC and you're on a PS4 you can still play together.
