Pimp was indeed a talented FPS player, who had a rather short run in the professional scene.

Back in 2018, he retired completely from the professional circuit to pursue a career in streaming.

It looks like Pimp is now all set to bring his talents to the Nordic esports organization Nordavind in 2021.
