Jaryd ‘summit1g‘ Lazar has clamied that he has benefited from a viewership boost since Dr Disrespect was banned from Twitch at E3 2019 – and he has called for more Champions Club members to join him on his channel.

The popular Twitch streamer, who has nearly 4 million followers on the streaming platform, was still on the World of Warcraft grind on June 11, and couldn’t help but notice that a flood of people in the chat were talking about one thing and one thing only – Dr Disrespect being banned.

The self-proclaimed ‘face of Twitch’ broadcasted his first ever IRL stream at E3 2019, but after recording inside a men’s bathroom, his channel was quickly suspended.

While many Doc fans might have expected summit1g to question the ban, he was amused by the fact that it resulted in his own views getting a boost.

“I think I’m getting more viewers because Doc got banned, because people want to tell me [about it],” he said during his June 11 livestream. “This is working out for me really well.”

“Listen guys, if the Champions Club is no longer available, then the only place left is the 1G Squad,” he jokingly continued, “We’ll accept you I guess, for five dollars.”

Summit isn’t the only high-profile streamer to have been asked about Dr Disrespect’s ban since his channel was suspended, with Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins and Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney posting about it on Twitter.

The former came out in support of the ban, but Tfue wants the Doc to return – tweeting: “Free Dr Disrespect,” along with a photo of him wearing Doc’s attire.

While Doc’s suspension has been the big talking point on Twitch, we expect him to be back streaming on Twitch soon.

Some fans may stray away and subscribe to other streamers in the meantime, though, and summit1g certainly isn’t going to close the door on any Champions Club members.

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.”
