Early Life and YouTube Beginnings
Very little is known about Kristopher’s life before his rise to fame on YouTube. There are no details regarding his family, and education; the only detail he’s shared is that he grew up with a sister. He hgenerated interest in creating content for YouTube in 2012, around the time that the website was gaining a huge amount of attention due to the possibility of having a career as a YouTuber.
YouTube is a video sharing website owned by Google which was originally created by three former PayPal employees. The site allowed users to upload their own videos to share to others. Viewers can then rate, favorite, subscribe, and comment on the videos or channels of those whom they like. Since its inception, YouTube has grown dramatically to become one of the most popular websites in the world. It has become the main source for video content including news, educational videos, movie trailers, video blogs, music videos, and many others. Its popularity has even led to numerous corporations and media outlets establishing their presence there as well.
London immediately made an impact by posting controversial videos, including reactions, parodies and story time. He then realized that a lot of viewers were watching him for his comedic content, which led him to continue to upload these types of videos. Eventually, what would define the majority of his channel would be his love for professional basketball, particularly the National Basketball Association (NBA). The NBA is considered the premiere men’s basketball league in the world, and one of the four major professional sports in the United States. Professional basketball players are among the world’s best paid athletes, and have become global celebrities in their own right.
One of London’s advantages was that he was very tall, which made him a fit for basketball, and he started producing various basketball related challenges and these types of videos would earn him upwards of a million views per video. His fame has led him to guest appearances with popular professional basketball personalities such as LaMelo Ball, and James Harden. His video with James Harden is his the most popular, gaining over five million views since 2018.
Kristopher’s love for the NBA has led him to play the video game “NBA 2K” regularly, even leading him to become a professional player. The “NBA 2K” series began in 1999 and has since been releasing annually alongside a new season of the NBA. It has become very popular and is considered one of the main NBA-based professional basketball games, and has led it to become an eSport.
His skill and love for the game as well as the sport led him to join the group called 2Hype, which consists of fellow professional “NBA 2K” players, also including YouTube personalities who love the NBA and playing “NBA 2K”. He continues his trend of uploading mostly basketball related videos on his channel, around two a week. His videos now often feature 2Hype members as they compete in various basketball-related challenges, or play the game. They also continue with challenge and trickshot videos including playing basketball at a trampoline park. His fame and promotion of the NBA video game has led to numerous professional basketball players being featured on his channel. Aside from Harden, he’s recently featured Julius Randle, Trae Young, and Giannis Antetekounmpo.
Personal Life and Social Media
For his personal life, it is known that London has been in a relationship with Bri Martinez since 2017. She is a YouTube personality and model who’s also been featured frequently on his channel. According to him, the two met while messaging each other on Twitter and both were avid fans of professional basketball which led them to connect easily. While she doesn’t appear as often in his channel anymore, he still makes sporadic appearances in her channel. The two apparently have a strong relationship and there have been no negative rumors about them.
Similar to numerous YouTube personalities, he remains highly active online through accounts on social media websites. He has a Twitter account in which he promotes his videos, as well as regular posts and news about the NBA, and the platform also allows him to share some of his day to day thoughts. He has an Instagram page too, on which he posts various basketball-related photos and videos including him making dunks, plus photos with fellow 2Hype members and a few with his girlfriend Bri. He stays active on both of his accounts and posts on a regular basis, often coinciding with his YouTube releases.
