TikTok star Quinton Griggs has revealed why he, Griffin Johnson and more are leaving the Sway House to kick off the Sway Gaming house — and it definitely raises some questions.

Quinton Griggs is one of the biggest stars on TikTok as a member of the Sway House, alongside the likes of Bryce Hall and Anthony Reeves, but he will shortly be leaving the house to pursue something new.

It was revealed in an appearance on The Tom Ward Show that Griggs would be leaving the house with Griffin Johnson to go to the then-unannounced Sway Gaming House — something that hadn’t been mentioned before and was brand new information to fans.

What was interesting, though, was Quinton’s explanation for why he wanted to move out of the Sway House…

What this news means for the Sway House remains to be seen.

The house is made up of a group of men who are all popular on TikTok, especially as they like to toe the line between what is and isn’t acceptable, with action and controversy regularly surrounding their bodies of work.

“Me and Griffin are moving into the Sway Gaming house,” he told Ward. “I’m not moving in there to game, it’s mainly for my own sake and my brand.”

Laughing about it, Griggs expanded on his point, saying: “As much as I love it here, we’re always in controversy. We’re always doing stupid sh*t, getting ourselves in trouble. I mean, we’re just a group of guys, we’re a frat. I just want to make sure my brand stays safe.”

Griggs added that he’ll still be heading to the Sway House “four or five times a week,” but how it affects his content overall remains to be seen.

It has been confirmed that Quinton will be joined in Sway Gaming by Griffin Johnson, Kio Cyr and Vinnie Hacker.

Where this leaves Bryce Hall – who, by the sounds of it, might be one of the last remaining TikTok stars to still reside in the original Sway house – remains to be seen. Could there be a new influx of talent joining Sway?

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.”
