A guy with an incredible story. Shall we say a RocknRolla of the streaming?
Well, many would not agree with that because Tyler Steinkamp has earned the nickname “The Most Toxic Player in North America” in 2018.

However, he is most known for his Minecraft streams, and he even competed in various Minecraft tournaments.
Well, what can we say about a guy who sold 35 million hip-hop albums worldwide?
