What do you get when you mix Champagnepapi with one of Twitch’s biggest up-and-comers? A lot of Twitch Views.

You can check out a video of the stream below.

Last night, Drake and Ninja got together with some Controlla-s to play some of Epic Games’ Fortnite. While it may already be the biggest multiplayer game right now, it doesn’t hurt to put the game’s most popular streamer and rapper-singer-songwriter-entertainer-memelord together.

The stream topped out at over 600,000 viewers, which blows the previous record, held by Dr. DisRespect at 400,000, out of the water and establishes a new Legend.

The stream had already gained traction on Twitch’s front page, but as soon as Drake tweeted about it, the viewer count skyrocketed.

This goes to show that Fortnite Battle Royale has infiltrated even the upper echelons of the rap game which goes to show just how big the battle royale format has gotten. Fortnite recently became the most watched game on Twitch and it doesn’t appear to be slowing down. You can check out the game’s most recent update here.
