However, the popular content creator is also known for his incredible acts of kindness and in his March 28 upload he set out to help more people than ever before.

Mr Beast also organized the viral Team Trees movement, raising over $20 million dollars to fight climate change.

For his latest video, Mr Beast revealed that he and his friends would be taking on the enormous task of donating over 1 million meals to different food banks.

He highlighted that many food banks across the US had been receiving fewer donations with the ongoing pandemic, as people have started to stock up on future supplies for themselves.

“Due to recent events, lots of people have started to hoard food and when you hoard food, you donate less, he shared, explaining his decision to take action on the major issue.

The YouTuber hired six semi-trucks and began stocking up on different protein products before dropping off each of the meals, adding, “now more than ever food banks genuinely need our help.”

After making their first stop at a local food bank, Mr Beast revealed that a single pallet on their trucks could hold an impressive amount of food equaling 7,000 meals worth of protein, “these pallets have thousands of servings of protein in them and they’re going to impact a lot of lives.”

Mr Beast later revealed that they would be launching a “good food challenge” alongside Smithfield encouraging people to help those in need and if they reached their goal of a million dollars they would donate another million meals to food banks affected by the pandemic.

This is not the first time he has raised money for a good cause, as the YouTuber was also behind the viral Team Trees movement which raised over $21 million to plant trees and combat climate change.

Rapper Future has had an incredible career spanning over several decades. In that time, he’s risen through the ranks to become a household name in the rap/hip-hop genres. Now, he’s revealed the latest addition to his garage in the form of this crazy one-off Chevrolet Blazer.

Future – real name Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn – is an American rap artist from Atlanta, Georgia. In his time as a musician, he has amassed a number of awards and released several critically-acclaimed albums and tracks.

With a car collection including Lamborghinis, Rolls-Royces, and Bentleys, he has now revealed his latest addition.

Standing out from his collection of ‘typical’ exotic cars, Future has now taken delivery of his custom-commissioned Chevrolet K5 Blazer truck from renowned tuners RingBrothers.

This fully-restored, one-off build looks absolutely incredible and will stand out among Future’s other ‘stock’ cars. Finished in British Racing Green, this is a color that was not available from factory, and was used only for his personal build.

The exterior has been left mostly stock other than the color change, but the front headlights have been upgraded to LED units. Not only have the headlights been changed, but also the wheels – the stock items being replaced by a set of 18″ gold HRE wheels.

Inside, the car has been completely re-trimmed in brown leather, with a number of embossed logos throughout. The factory analog dials have been refreshed, but a 10″ touchscreen has been fitted to the dash. This is coupled to an uprated JL audio system – a key upgrade for a musician such as Future.

Future unveiled the truck on his Instagram:

Underneath the hood is the biggest upgrade to the car – a complete engine and transmission swap. The stock motor has been ditched for a 6.2l LS3 V8, coupled to an uprated GM automatic transmission. With 430hp on tap, Future will have plenty of fun driving this custom truck around.

RingBrothers co-owner Mike Ring is justifiably proud of the result: “We’re humbled that people continue to come to us for special projects like this.”

“We realize that our customers could get a new Ferrari or Lamborghini but choose us instead. It’s an honor we don’t take lightly, so we put our heart into each project. We’re glad Future appreciates that.”
