Rise to Fame

Although the step was appreciated by some of his early viewers, but many accused him of copying the style from other similar YouTubers such as Leafyishere, but StaxMontana didn’t pay much attention to his critics. His first video was fairly successful, gaining more than 60k views during its lifetime.
His next few videos focused on commentaries of a few more games such as ‘Madden 12’ and ‘NCAA 12 Road to Glory’.

Unlike many other YouTubers, Stax didn’t hit it off with just one viral video. Instead, he kept uploading videos through the times when there were less than 1k views on the videos. He built his fanbase slowly, and when he took off from gaming videos and focused on the general interests of the youth, he grew at a much rapid pace.
His video series by the title ‘Real Nigga Story’ became the stepping stone for Stax towards YouTube glory. He took on topics such as ‘How to Get Women to sleep with you’ and he also started Vlogging while talking about the topics about his girlfriends and what tactics he uses to pick up girls.
He also invited a lot of criticism and moral policing for the frequent usage of cuss words, racial slurs and expletives, but given the appreciation he was receiving, he didn’t stop and kept adding about 200-300 subscribers to his fan base daily.
Of hundreds of videos he has put up on the internet, there hasn’t been a single video that has hit a million mark until now.
He has also entered into collaborations with other popular YouTube gamers such as iPodKingCarter and the videos resulting from the collaborations further increased the subscriber base of both the youngsters.
