Professional streamer and Fortnite player Hamlinz is much more than a funny personality. Heamlinz has shown, through his few years streaming Fortnite, that he’s skilled at freestyle rapping, has incredible building speeds, and takes every opportunity possible to thank his audience for following him on his journey.

His success isn’t limited to Twitch either. He’s currently got a subscription base of around 1.2 million on YouTube, as well as nearly 2 million on instagram. However it wasn’t all smooth sailing for Hamlinz.

So what allowed Hamlinz to explode in popularity and how did he end up on one of the more infamous Fortnite teams? Let’s take a dive into the life of Darryle “Hamlinz” Hamlin and find out.

TSM Hamlinz Bio

Hamlinz was born on May 24th of 1995 and from the age of 4 he had two passions. Soccer, and Gaming. Pursuing both for a number of years, spending long nights playing with his friends, it was almost predetermined that Hamlinz would end up either as a professional soccer player or gamer. 

It seemed it was prearranged to be the latter as Hamlinz suffered injury after injury with his ankle, preventing him from playing soccer and pushing him to spend more time in front of his computer. Spending most of that time playing Runescape, and watching YouTube, Hamlinz figured combining the two is something he could easily do.

Starting off his career in 2013 doing exactly that, Hamlinz only managed to gather around 20 subscribers on YouTube by 2017. It wasn’t until he posted some videos of him playing Fortnite that he really saw any signs of growth, and it was exponential. 

During the time between Runescape and Fortnite, Hamlinz was integrated into the professional Call of Duty and Halo scenes. Like many other popular Fortnite streamers, Hamlinz also got his first experience of Battle Royale in PUBG, where he developed a strong sense of the survival instincts needed for winning. In the year following the release of PUBG, Hamlinz transitioned to Fortnite and was noticed for his incredible building skills and speed. His history of gaming and experience with Battle Royale games all cumulated in 2018 when Hamlinz joined Team SoloMid.

Never losing sight of where he began, and attributing a lot of his levelheadedness to the amount of spaghetti he can buy thanks to his subscribers and their donations, Hamlinz has always remained thankful and honest with his fans. Currently however, he has been off social media and away from streaming for the past month. Few know what’s truly going on but when he returns, he’s sure to bring quite the audience to his streams once again.
