Early Life and Gaming Beginnings
Ali and his two siblings were primarily raised by an uncle from his mother’s side. His parents divorced, and the separation took a toll on his mother who was deemed unfit to take care of her children. They remained connected, though many saw that she was too unstable to be left alone with children. At a young age, Ali developed a love for video games, which would translate to his streaming career later on. He attended Fordson High School in Dearborn, Michigan.
The school was established in 1928 on a 15-acre plot of land which was a part of what was known then as the village of Fordson, named after Henry Ford. After matriculating from high school, he developed an interest towards pursuing a career in video games, at the time when YouTube was growing in popularity as a hub for gamer focused content creators.
In 2013, Kabbani created his YouTube channel entitled Myth though it was only initially created for using the site’s features as he was still not yet fully committed to creating videos.
It wasn’t until two years later, that he saw the potential for a career in the gaming industry thanks to Twitch, a live streaming service which allows users to stream online while playing video games. It’s a spin-off which prevailed, a subsidiary of Amazon now boasting over 2.2 million broadcasters and over 100 million viewers each month. During this time, he played a lot of the video game entitled “Paragon”.
Fortnite and TSM
In 2017, he became interested in the video game entitled “Fortnite: Battle Royale”, and one of the first players to stream the game.
It is a free-to-play battle royale game in which 100 players join a game and fight to become the last person standing. The game has been a huge success for its developer Epic Games, earning hundreds of millions per month through the use of paid content such as battle passes while also drawing in 125 million players within a year. It is one of the video games which popularity has had a direct effect on pop culture.
His popularity skyrocketed as a result of streaming what would become a very popular game. Its integration with numerous platforms also helped in that regard. A year afterwards, he was invited to join the professional gaming organization Team SoloMid (TSM). The organization was founded by Andy “Reginald” Dinh and they have teams focused on playing several competitive multiplayer games.
