Twitch has become incredibly popular in recent years and given a platform for certain streamers to earn a living via donations and sponsorship. Clearly, whenever individuals are in the public eye, they can receive trolling in various different forms. Unbelievably, one user who goes by the name of iNexus_Ninja decided to donate vast sums of money to various Twitch streamers ranging from $1,000 all the way up to $5,000.

Record producer, songwriter, rapper and Auto-Tune enthusiast T-Pain joined Twitch earlier this week, and while he spent a night playing the new Doom, the musician has since found his game of choice: Overwatch, which he’s spent several hours livestreaming this week.

Fans of songs like “Buy U a Drank,” hero-based shooters, celebrity Twitch streams and all of the above have filed in to watch T-Pain play Overwatch. Some have even had the chance to join his group or play some rounds against him. Throughout the streams, viewers have learned more about T-Pain’s gaming history (like how he spent over $10,000 while playing Madden NFL), fondness for Twitch and plans to cosplay as Overwatch characters at future TwitchCon events.

But in his latest broadcast, seen above, T-Pain goes deeper. Around the one-hour, 46-minute mark, the rapper gets real about how he finally feels able to revel in his true, game-loving self.

“For many years, I’ve been led to believe that we should all be hiding the fact that we’re gamers,” he says. According to him, the music industry has stifled his love of video games over the years, considering the hobby “uncool.”
