Formerly known as TSM Hamlinz, Hamlinz is a professional Fortnite player, Twitch partner, and member of the LA-based esports and gaming organization NRG. Hamlinz has over 1.34 million YouTube subscribers and over 2.2 million Twitch followers. His Fortnite gameplay has bolstered his popularity, launching him into streamer success over the years.
One of the unique aspects of Hamlinz’s streams early on was that he would freestyle rap whenever he gained a new follower, adding a fun element to his gameplay. According to fortnitemaster.com, his freestyle rapping has continued in his streams, though they occur more randomly now. He is recognizable by his signature icon, a pig wearing sunglasses, alluding to the “ham” in his name.
Hamlinz started his streaming career playing RuneScape, a game he’d been playing since he was eight years old. He began his YouTube channel in September of 2013, but at this time still had relatively few followers. He then ventured into other, more first-person shooter games, like Call of Duty and Halo. His eventual switch to Fortnite is what ultimately began to bring in more followers, due to both the popularity of the game and Hamlinz’s skill and building speed.
Hamlinz quickly passed the 100,000 YouTube subscribers mark in May of 2018, then crossing 200,000 in June of 2018 – breaking through to 400,000 by the end of the month. Since then, he’s steadily built his fanbase on both YouTube and Twitch. It was this skill and popularity that resulted in Hamlinz being invited to join Team SoloMid.
According to fortnite-esports.gamepedia.com, top Fortnite player Myth invited Hamlinz to the team, and Hamlinz has since regularly participated in tournament matches with his teammates. Hamlinz and Daequan most recently won second place in the Friday Fortnite competition, and Hamlinz has also had several victories partnered with Myth.
His addition to TSM further grew his popularity and fanbase. When TSM bought a home in Beverly Hills, California, all of its team members moved in. Living in the TSM house allowed for other team members to make quick appearances during Hamlinz streams, creating crossovers for fans of each player. Hamlinz also shared updates on what was happening in the TSM house, as well as featured content about the team members’ ongoing prank war with each other.
According to Famous Births Deaths, Hamlinz’s current estimated net worth is at $900,000. He makes his income through Twitch subscribers, donations, tournament winnings, and YouTube content. He also has several sponsorship deals that add to his income.
With his growing fans, Hamlinz has quickly amassed over 1.34 million subscribers on YouTube, 2.2 million followers on Twitch, 1.2 million Twitter followers, and 1.5 million Instagram followers. Aside from his gaming content, Hamlinz uses his other social media accounts to provide updates, talk with his followers, and share gameplay highlights from his streams.
After being absent from social media for almost 2 years, Hamlinz and Daequan Loco announced on August 26, 2021, that they officially joined the Los Angeles-based gaming and entertainment company NRG.
Hamlinz's real name is Darryle Hamlin, which served as the inspiration for his screen name. According to youtube.fandom.com, he was born on May 23, 1995, making Hamlinz 26 years old.
