Drake and Travis Scott Play 'Fortnite' Video Game With Popular Streamer Ninja

Drake explained during the stream that the unusual collaboration came about from the singer playing Fortnite and watching streamers with his band when taking breaks from the studio. Wednesday night, Drake teamed up with pro-gamer Tyler Ninja Blevins, rapper Travis Scott, and Steelers receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster to create a star-studded team. Ninja usually gets around 70,000 live viewers per stream, so to pump this up to more than half a million is quite the achievement. But Ninja's rise could also be explained by his incredible mastery of Fortnite, the game he streams most often. The views have already reached almost 90 million over the last few hours since it went live.

The stream was so popular that it became a top trending topic on Twitter, with other celebrities - such as Hall of Fame football player Terrell Owens - live-tweeting about it.

Fortnite is now the most popular competitive video game of the moment, created by Epic Games. At one point, La Flame had to ask Drizzy for some help, asking the Toronto rapper to revive him in-game.

Drake and Ninja discuss Fortnite's future development, including how to improve the game's current maps. Since it was such a success, the Fortnite makers are considering Drake's appearance becoming a more regular occurrence.

FDA Moves to Curb Nicotine in Cigarettes
An additional wave of rule making will explore the role that premium cigars and flavors, including menthol, play in tobacco use. Although the FDA sees benefits in lessening nicotine levels, it does not want to make cigarettes harder to get.

More details will be announced ahead of the event, and Epic also has said to stay tuned for details about the first season of competitive play.

Drake and Ninja hooked up for the session after the former started following the latter on Twitter.

Fortnite was languishing in development until past year, when it introduced a mode called "Battle Royale". Imagine it: a Fortnite squad with one player on PC, one on PS4, one on Xbox, and one on mobile. You can check out the entire stream below.
