Popular Twitch streamer Chance ‘Sodapoppin’ Morris was left confused after being told he couldn’t play a game he’d already started due to language used later down the line, that could see him falling foul of the platform’s community guidelines. 

While many gaming broadcasters use Twitch to show off their domination in one particular game, plenty of others venture into the world of variety streaming – where they play everything from new releases to whatever is popular at the time.

One of the leading names in this scene is Sodapoppin, who has been streaming since 2011. Unlike some other variety streamers, though, he dives into some of the worst games on offer with his “Sh*tshow Saturday” streams, finding some pretty strange storylines, bugs, and mechanics.

Sodapoppin took a break from Twitch towards the end of 2019 but has since returned.

However, during his January 24 broadcast, he found himself unable to carry on playing ‘Valakas Story’ after being warned about language used in the game that could possibly see him being banned from Twitch.

“Wait what? I see his message,” the streamer said while looking off stream. “Ok, I’m being told I can’t play this game because there are words in Russian that can’t be said on stream. I’m not even kidding, dead serious.”

Upon hearing this, though, members of his chat began spamming that both Sebastian ‘Forsen’ Fors and Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel had played through the game themselves on-stream. “Well, they got away with it then, I can’t.”

While his fans tried to convince him to change his mind and ignore whatever warning he had received, Soda said that he didn’t want to risk it and was moving on. “No one understands Twitch’s rules, stream – no one gets it. Sh*t is just really hard to follow.

“All I know is I was told I should reconsider playing it because that game had some slurs that were not really Twitch TOS friendly. You can look at others who played the game and they’re just fine, I’m not going to risk sh*t. I’m just not, it’s not worth it.”

Even though it may have upset many of his viewers to move on from the game, it was pretty clear that Soda wasn’t even going to entertain the idea of returning.

Yet, it wasn’t like he’d just lost hours of progress as he was only a few minutes into Valakas Story and could easily move on to start something else.

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.”
