Drake and Travis Scott have caught on to the latest viral video game craze.
The two rappers caused a stir in the gaming world on Wednesday night because they were playing the video game “Fortnite” with high- profile player Tyler Blevins, known as Ninja.
“Playing fortnite with @Ninja,” Drake tweeted and ended up setting a record of how many viewers watched them play, according to gaming site Kotaku, which also reported that the singer told Blevins he’s been playing for two months.
Scott, who recently welcomed daughter Stormi with Kylie Jenner, logged on early Thursday to play with the “God’s Plan” singer. And adding to the fun, Pittsburgh Steelers player JuJu Smith-Schuster joined their “squad” or team in the game.
“Travis Scott really my favorite rapper and I was out there getting revived by that dude… he was asking me for bandaids 😂😂😂😂😂 What is life!!” Smith-Schuster tweeted, later to be corrected by fans that the correct term in the game is “bandages.”
Together the famed trio plus the video game personality garnered more than a record-breaking 600,000 views of their game, which live streams on the Twitch service.
The game, which debuted in the fall, has become the obsession of gamers of all ages.
