Twitch streamer Saqib ‘LIRIK’ Zahid has been entertaining fans with his latest Grand Theft Auto V roleplay streams – which has left many fans entertained with all of his highlights.

GTA V roleplay allows players to become even more immersed in the fictional city of Los Santos – as they take on the form of a normal NPC and take them on a journey of their own through the player’s ability to improv and role play.

LIRIK has joined the latest wave of streamers such as Summit1g by making a return to the GTA V roleplay servers and has had multiple entertaining streams since creating his character on March 10.

LIRIK/twitchLIRIK’s GTA V Character, Avon Barksdale after being arrested in-game.

The character he re-created was the same one he had entertained fans with previously, known as Avon Barksdale, who was based on the fictional character from the hit TV Show, The Wire. His current series titled as the Avon Barksdale Adventures has been entertaining fans with the hilarious situations LIRIK finds himself in on the roleplay servers.

Some of the most viewed clips during his GTA Roleplay series have been from hilarious phone calls during his journey as Avon Barksdale, including this particular one that some of his viewers had described as “movie-like”.

This comedic phone call took place with a kidnapper named “Jesus” after one of his friends was kidnapped in-game. After the kidnapper mistakenly called LIRIK’s character “Bob” the pair went back and forth with each other arguing on the phone before the kidnapper told someone to ‘stab Avon’s friend two times’ and the moment had LIRIK’s fans in tears.

Another one of his hilarious phone call clips happened when LIRIK’s character was casually walking the wrong way down the freeway and he called someone in the game ‘who had enough of being prank called,’ LIRIK apparently could not get his mic to work in-game at the time and later hilariously texted the contact: “Hold the fuck on man, I gotta change service plans.”

Another one of his most popular clips during his GTA roleplay series happened when he had tried to sell an old man a watch in-game, who was shocked by the price saying: “2000 dollars…I’ve been in 38 world wars and still don’t have any money to my name.” 

The old man then rapidly listed off some of the historical events he had claimed to have an influence in causing such as “Carrying the cross for Jesus.”

After its initial spike in popularity back in early 2018, many Twitch streamers had stopped making use of the roleplay servers in GTA V to broadcast other trending games such as Fortnite, however this recent wave of streamers returning could be good news for GTA fans.

It appears that LIRIK will keep streaming the GTA V roleplay series for fans in the future as his latest streams have received such high praise due to some of the highly-entertaining moments on the broadcast.

All week, the singer and Chase have been working on a “huge” project that is only being described as a “movie” by all involved. It also looks as though Blink 182’s Travis Barker has a role in the production after he appeared in Mod Sun’s Instagram stories on set, but no more details have been revealed. In a later post, Machine Gun Kelly described it as the “best week of my life.”

It looks as though the project will be Chase Hudson’s first significant acting role, though he previously appeared briefly in the music video for Blueberry Faygo by Lil Mosey earlier this year.

However, fans have had mixed reactions to Chase Hudson’’s involvement. Under Machine Gun Kelly’s Instagram post, some were unimpressed with one person writing “I was hyped ’til I seen Huddy,” while another person wrote, “Yay I’m so happy for Chase to be a part of this!”

But those involved in the production have nothing but nice things to say about the 18-year-old. Mod Sun posted an Instagram story featuring Chase saying “This is one of my new best friends for life. I believe in this kid fully. I cannot wait to see the kind of art that we just did… Chase, you blew my mind kid, I love you forever.”
