McDonald’s have launched a new specialty meal, the Travis Scott, and the world’s most iconic fast food reviewer, ReviewBrah of YouTube’s ‘TheReportOfTheWeek,’ has officially given his verdict on the three-piece meal.

Scott is one of the music and entertainment industry’s most iconic figures over the past few years, with superstar collaborations on his songs and in his business ventures. Those ventures have typically existed in the fashion world, where his partnerships with Nike, Air Jordan and Dior have dominated the resell markets and emptied wallets.

Now, he’s taken his talents to the grill as McDonald’s teamed with the man known as “La Flame” to put out a char-grilled $6 meal that comes equipped with a specialty quarter-pounder burger, an order of fries and a cup of Sprite. While many eager fans have tried it out in honor of their preferred musician, the true taste test comes from ReviewBrah, who has built a following of 2 million-plus subscribers on YouTube with his renowned palate. 

 

ReviewBrah went into his review with one clear question: “Is McDonald’s new Travis Scott meal a hit?” And it appears he has found his answer, having gotten his hands on the meal despite finding that people had been waiting in line at his local McDonald’s for days — including one patron for a whopping 16 days.

The meal itself is relatively straightforward. It comes with all of Scott’s favorite items, including a Medium fries (with tangy barbeque sauce), a Sprite (with ice, although you’re encouraged to “ask for extra ice”), and the main delight, a Quarter Pounder with bacon, American cheese, shredded lettuce, pickle slices, onions, ketchup, and mustard. 

As ReviewBrah explains, although he does not typically enjoy Sprite, he did appreciate what it brings to the meal as a sort of sour element that complements the rest of the meal’s flavor profile. Noting the mustard, pickles, Sprite, and barbeque sauce, he noted that “one really prevailing characteristic that I noticed in this meal is a little bit of a tanginess to everything.” 

Overall though, ReviewBrah is a fan. “It’s a good meal, I like it, very flavorful, it’s a good price, too.” Out of 10, he elected to give the popular collaboration an 8.6.

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.”
