Popular Twitch streamer Tyler ‘Trainwreckstv’ Nikam has revealed the eye-watering amount of money he has spent on gifted Twitch subscriptions. 

Trainwrecks is one of the biggest names on Twitch, regularly entertaining his 700,000 followers with variety content. Besides that, he is also close friends with many Twitch streamers, regularly wagering gifted subs and sharing inside jokes.

It seems that Nikam may rethink his liberal attitude to gifted subs in the future however, after he took some time during a July 26 broadcast to calculate the total amount he has spent on gifted Twitch subscriptions.

Following a discussion with his chat, Nikam went back through old transactions to try and work out the total amount of money.

Needless to say, it took some time and a lot of math to come to the total amount, but his chat could scarcely believe the figure they were presented with.

Train sighed audibly, and then said: “Wow! Wow! $263,187 on gifted subs since 2017. But wait, wait.”

He then went on to calculate the amount of the money spent that was on subs to his own channel. With 21,000 subscriptions purchased for his own channel, he calculated that around $105,000 of it went towards his own channel.

The breakdown of subscription varies depending on creator, but a 50/50 split is a generally fair assumption. This also means that just over $158,000 went towards other content creators and the platform itself.

After calculating the amount given to other channels, he hit out at viewers who had called him “selfish” for essentially donating to himself.

“I knew my number to other channels was bigger than the number to my own,” he said. “I just wanted to clarify this… you want to talk about the distribution of wealth? I am the biggest distributor of wealth on this goddamn platform.”

The figures are truly mind-blowing, but many viewers commended Trainwrecks’ generosity – once they’d got over the eye-watering total he has spent.

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.”
