Controversial YouTuber and Twitch streamer Steven ‘Boogie2933’ Williams aimed his typical rants squarely at his critics, calling out users from popular social site Reddit.

Boogie has been the focal point of troubling debacles, mainly with him revealing apparent tax fraud schemes as well as “begging” for money following a major purchase of a $100,000 luxury Tesla vehicle.

While his fanbase has stuck by him throughout the many ordeals, these are just some of the issues that internet-goers who don’t look at Boogie in high favor will bring up in expressing their opinions about the content creator.

During one of his livestreams, Boogie was talking with his chat when one of his viewers asked him if he’s kept up with popular social media Reddit: “Boogie, I love ya but did you see Reddit today?”

While the question seemed innocent enough, it seemed to set off the streamer into a fiery rant aimed at how much he “never cared” about what opinions the people on that site has on him.

Boogie was using his alter-ego character ‘Francis’ to get his point across in the clip, which also explains higher-pitched voice than normal.

“Oh, I’ve seen Reddit today,” Boogie said imitating Reddit goers. “’Ooo, we don’t like Boogie anymore.’ Good, I don’t f*ckin like you. I don’t f*ckin like you, Reddit. Okay? I don’t care, I never cared.”

At that point the streamer mockingly held up “the world’s tiniest violin” and played it for the people hating on him saying it was for “how little of a sh*t [he gives] for what Reddit thinks about [him].”

He ended the rant with a couple of requests for the Reddit community, as the streamer hit the apex of his scathing retort to the waves of negativity he’s been getting.

To cap off his rant, he made a remark for his viewers to “pay for [his] f*cking Tesla, you fuckers” which seemed to be alluding to one of the latest issues to arise between Boogie and Reddit.

Boogie is no stranger to criticisms as he’s felt the thick of it due to racist comments made on stream to one of his donors which was clipped and has routinely made its way around the web.

It looks like this will be another entry to the clips and instances against Boogie the internet has compiled, as he carries on streaming his notable rants and gameplay.

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.”
