YouTube star Bryan ‘Ricegum’ Le threw some subtle shade toward fellow content creator KSI, claiming that his own music is superior to the Brit’s star-studded tracks from the past few years.

KSI is more than a YouTuber; he notably delved into the world of professional boxing against Logan Paul, and has even released a slew of songs featuring other major names in the rap world.

With track “Down Like That” seeing a performance from Rick Ross and Lil’ Pump appearing on “Poppin’,” KSI’s work in the music biz is arguably more than a one-time stint — but Ricegum isn’t too impressed with his comrade’s releases.

KSI’s track “Down Like That” saw such names as Rick Ross, Lil Baby, and S-X featured on the song, boosting the YouTuber’s status in the music world in a huge way.

Le discussed the matter during an episode of the “Mom’s Basement” podcast on April 10, when he was asked by Drama Alert’s KEEMSTAR if he hopes to take his own musical career in a similar direction to KSI’s.

“I don’t want to do what he’s doing,” Ricegum answered. “He’s been trying to take music seriously, you know what I’m saying? I’m just trying to make my own wave… I just feel like if that happens, that happens.”

YouTuber Ricegum saw instant success with his latest song, “DaAdult,” which garnered over 1 million views in just 24 hours.

That’s not all; Ricegum even claimed his own music was better than KSI’s, explaining that although he wasn’t “taking shots,” he feels that YouTubers aren’t at the level of top rap stars, just yet.

“I feel like my songs are better than his,” he explained. “I don’t even want to go that way. I haven’t heard anyone say, ‘Turn on that new KSI!’ No one has said, ‘Turn on that new Rice either,’ but you know — like no one is quite there yet. I’m just being honest. I’m not taking shots.”

“KSI is my guy, but I haven’t bumped the KSI song, I’m just being honest,” he continued. “He’s doing his thing, man. If I could do that, that’s cool, but I’m just gonna see where this music thing takes me. It’s kinda like a transition, so.”

While Ricegum made it clear he isn’t dissing his friend, he isn’t afraid of hyping up his own music, either, shortly after the release of his viral track “DaAdult,” which scored over 1 million views within 24 hours.

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.”
