Twitch is a hive for hilarious moments, unexpected slip-ups, and other crazy hijinks – but one streamer decided to orchestrate a major life change during one of his IRL broadcasts.

It’s not every day that an internet personality will decide to quit their day job in favor of full-time streaming, but that’s exactly what Twitch streamer Dkane did during a May 17 broadcast, after hyping up his decision for some time.

In fact, DKane reached a milestone of 1,000 subscribers that day, prompting him to go into work with a singular purpose: to quit during his live stream and film his boss’s reaction.

DKane, TwitterDKane is a popular Twitch streamer and brother to Chance ‘Sodapoppin’ Morris, currently living in a streaming house with other top personalities.

“Hey, guys, today’s the day,” DKane said after walking into this boss’s office. “I quit.”

DKane panned the camera to get a look at his boss’s reaction, who merely gave a highly unamused expression in response to the streamer’s announcement before turning back to his computer monitor.

“Wait, that’s it?” DKane replied. “That’s your response?”

“I got no response for you, since you don’t respond to my text messages,” his boss answered.

DKane went on to admit that he was so nervous he was shaking, afraid that his employer would “backhand” him in response to his decision.

Of course, DKane wasn’t free to leave just yet; he got called back into his boss’s office after walking away, with his employer audibly asking him to turn off his camera before delving into further discussion.

DKane even posted a Tweet on the matter, claiming that he had no other choice now but to “keep bustin’ my ass streaming for you guys” after quitting his day job in retail.

Reactions to DKane’s decision were largely mixed, with some commenters worried that his Twitch career would go downhill following his exit, while others claimed that it would be easy for him to find another job just like it, should things fall through.

DKane is the brother of popular Twitch streamer Chance ‘Sodapoppin’ Morris, and lives in a streaming house with the likes of Mitch Jones, Pink Sparkles, and other popular IRL broadcasters on the platform.

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.”
