Twitch superstar Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek brushed off suggestions that he is a gaming “god”, suggesting his viewers could reach a similar level of ability to himself if they put their mind to it.

The former CS:GO professional is known for his insane aiming abilities, which make him one of the most feared first-person shooter players on the planet as he excels in almost every game he gets his hands on.

Despite achieving tremendous success in tournaments and his streaming career, shroud refuted claims that he should be considered a “god” at gaming, suggesting his skill set was not unique to other top players.

ELEAGUEShroud earned over $300,000 dollars in prize money during his career.

While shroud admitted he was better than the majority of other gamers, he insisted his abilities are common among other top streamers too.

Asked whether he was a “god” in the world of video games, the Canadian said: “No – what do you mean a god? Do I think I’m well above your average player? Absolutely.

“But there is so many people that have the same skill set as me, I’m not unique, unfortunately.”

Shroud continued to explain why he doesn’t feel different to other streamers and highlighted one of the main reasons behind his achievements.

“I might have made a unique impression, but I’m not unique. There are plenty of people with the same skillset and the same exact talent,” he added.

“It’s not that hard, you just have to play a lot of games – that’s it! You have to play a lot of games and know how to learn.”

While practice does make perfect, it would take an unholy number of hours to replicate the aiming abilities of the 25-year-old, who has perfected his craft over many years of gaming.

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.”
