Here Is How IShowSpeed Rose to Fame!
Around the time the COVID-19 pandemic started in 2020, IShowSpeed started to take YouTube streaming and content seriously. His streams and content were mostly about the NBA 2K video game series. With the help of his streams, he gradually established a little community for himself and experienced moderate growth during his first year of video production.
In 2021, things started to really pick up for the young YouTuber. It became routine for Speed to have meltdowns on stream, frequently screaming or throwing items, as he kept routinely streaming 2K, Fortnite, and other video games. Fans posted clips from his live stream, including those of his tantrums, to social media platforms like TikTok.

He went from 100,000 to one million subscribers in less than two months because of the popular videos and rants. Furthermore, IShowSpeed was able to maintain this high rate of expansion, expanding from one million to 11 million users in just under 18 months. He currently has 16 million subscribers on his YouTube channel.
The majority of Speed's popularity and entertainment value are directly related to his antics, which has proven to be a double-edged sword for the streamer. His meltdowns improve his audience and engagement, which leads the streamer to repeatedly up the ante on his next freak-out or stunt. This feedback loop has been spotted by outside observers.
Due to his misogynistic outbursts and threats on stream, IShowSpeed has experienced some of the most notorious moments in his career. He participated in a date on Adin Ross' stream with online influencer Ash Kaash before the end of 2021. Speed frequently threatened the TikTok celebrity throughout the Discord date, and his threats were so serious that he was permanently barred from performing on Twitch. An identical response was given to him by Epic Games after some sexist remarks made about a female gamer went public.
There is no doubt that IShowSpeed has discovered a formula for internet and social media success that works, at least for him. However, his content might not be to everyone's taste.
