Update (July 21): Roughly 24 hours after his surprise ban from Twitch, Sodapoppin has been reinstated on the platform. Following a sarcastic apology video from the mega-popular streamer, the Amazon-owned platform reversed its decision on July 21. The original story is as follows.

Popular Twitch streamer Chance ‘Sodapoppin’ Morris has been handed a suspension from the streaming platform, however, the reason behind the ban is unclear.

As Twitch OGs go, Sodapoppin is one of the biggest. The popular variety streamer has been streaming since 2012, amassing over 2.7 million followers in that time thanks to his entertaining and unique content.

He can usually be found dominating a game’s section all by his own given that he has a tendency to play titles that not every streamer wants to try out.

Yet, those game will have to wait a little bit as his Twitch channel received a temporary suspension on July 20. Though, instead of being disheartened by it, Sodapoppin decided to have a little fun with the ban.

Sodapoppin has climbed up the Twitch ranks to become one of the platform’s biggest streamers.

As his fans quickly speculated about his ban, noting that it probably came from his recent VR Chat stream given that he was streaming with roflgator, who also received a ban – Chance responded on Twitter.

“Haha I know why I was banned and u don’t :)” he tweeted, before following it up with a jokey apology video. In his video, the streamer apologized to his family, friends, and viewers for the misstep.

He also joked that, given he’s been in lockdown for a few months, he was desperate for “female attention” and had to go into VRChat. Yet, things seemingly got a bit out of hand and Twitch might not have taken too kindly to the content – even though Soda added that he and Twitch love each other. 

However, the streaming platform rarely comments publicly on bans, so it’s unlikely that they’ll change course here and back up any of what Sodapoppin said. 

Chance hasn’t been permanently banned either, so, his channel will more than likely be back dominating the charts within a day or so. It shouldn’t take all that long before he’s back on fans’ screens.

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.”
