According to Complex, Episode 248 follows the characters John and Sera as they try to deal with the tension surrounding an impending conflict.

From Music To Multiple Ventures
Lil Uzi has made a name for himself since taking the rap scene by storm and becoming one of its top-paid rappers.
While his touring, album sales, and merchandise sales have been what brings in the majority of his cash flow, he’s also found ventures other than music gigs to add to his net worth.
As previously reported by AfroTech, Lil Uzi is one of today’s celebrities that have gravitated toward cryptocurrency. He even reportedly bought his girlfriend JT of the City Girls a McLaren for her birthday in Ethereum.
Along with the digital space, the crypto user is also into the fashion world. When taking a look at his photos, you can often catch him sporting some of today’s sought after designers.
According to HipHopDX, Lil Uzi took his passion and began working with Human Made — the clothing brand founded by NIGO. The Japanese designer has worked with Pharrell, Kanye West, and Kanye West. Previews of the collaboration were shared in August 2021, but it has yet to be released.
