100 Thieves member Rachel ‘Valkyrae’ Holsetter partnered with the FaZe Clan’s Sway for the second week running, but his mother was far from impressed with her performance in the tournament.

Following the FaZe Clan and Tfue drama, Friday Fortnite was relaunched on May 30 with NRG duo Mr Savage and Benjyfishy taking first place by beating fellow EU pro’s Ghost Kamo and Issa in the grand finals.

The latest tournament saw Twitch star Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins team up with the king of YouTube Felix ‘Pewdiepie’ Kjellberg, but the duo were unable to pull off an upset with FaZe Clan’s Jarvis and Tilt taking home the $20,000 prize following a successful winners bracket run.

Once again, FaZe’s controller player, Sway, impressed with some fantastic games alongside duo partner Valkyrae – who admittedly struggled to keep up with her teammate at times.

The pair made a decent run in the losers bracket, with Sway racking up 26 kills in one round, before losing to Kamo and Issa, prompting Sway’s mother to hit out at Valkyrae’s performance on Twitter.

Upon seeing the Tweet, Valkyrae was visibly upset, but handled it well, simply informing Sway’s parent that the tournament was just for fun, and was not strictly for professional players.

The 100 Thieves member admitted that she did cry a little bit as the tweet caught her completely off guard.

“I did cry a little bit okay,” she said. “I’m fine but that tweet did catch me off guard.

“I might cry some more but I’m fine.”

FaZe Sway’s mom apologizes

Immediately after posting the tweet, Sway’s mother received a ton of backlash from fans of the tournament, who were quick to highlight that Friday Fortnite was purely for fun.

She soon deleted the tweet and posted an apology to Valkyrae, stating she “didn’t understand” what type of event it was and looked forward to watching the pair team up again next week.

Friday Fortnite will return on June 14 for the final time, but the overwhelming success of the last two weeks suggests the tournament will be renewed long-term.

It remains to be seen whether Sway and Valkyrae will partner up again or choose new teammates in the hope of securing some prize money.

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.”
