He has an older brother and a younger brother.
Arab was born in Lebanon, but hi family moved to Atlanta, GA when he was really small. He has been gaming ever since he was about five years old and grew up playing with his brothers and cousins, even after his one of his cousins moved to Canada. He spent every summer growing up In Lebanon, because his family owned businesses there.
During grade school from fourth grade on he played a lot of RuneScape and then moved on to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 as his main from the eighth grade. He then went on to main and compete in League of Legends (LoL) starting from 2012 and even managed to lead his school’s team into a victory at the regional championship.
But by the time Fortnite was released, he was getting tired of LoL due to the toxicity and so was more than happy to try out Fortnite. From there, it developed into his new favorite game. It was also his first battle royale game.
He is currently completing his degree in Computer Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology.
He has always enjoyed making others laugh and he decided to apply that that to his love of gaming by attempting content creation on YouTube. He did so mainly as a way to justify the amount of his spare time that he was dedicating to gaming, as he felt that it otherwise wouldn’t be appropriate for a college student to be spending that much time on games.
He started uploading content to his YouTube channel in late 2015, although he has since deleted much of his earlier content. He then opened his Twitch channel in April 2016. However, it was only after he switched to maining Fortnite in June 2018 and got boosted by Clix after the two of them became friends in May 2019 after getting into fight in chat after a scrim in a Practice Server.
His dad was originally against his dedicating so much of his time to streaming until he managed to raise $10,000 USD for St. Jude in January 2020. Since then, his dad had been supportive and interested in his channel’s success.
His channel isn’t appropriate for children.

[In order to maintain growth,] you’ve got to talk to everybody that’s new, bro. You’ve got to win the new people over and you’ve got to win them over for your personality too. Otherwise, they’re going to leave once your gameplay gets bad.
Balancing [school and Fortnite] is hard. I've failed 2/14 of the classes I took since I started comp Fortnite & streaming but that's just because I see the value of working on this streaming thing right now while it's still hot. I'm almost done school and I would have never thought I'd fail a class until I started streaming 180 hours a month but I wouldn't recommend doing what I did. It's hard to balance.
