Travi$ Scott Says He Downloaded Kanye West’s ‘Yeezus’ Too

Travis Scott is one of the main contributors on Kanye West’s Yeezus. In the liner notes, the Houston rapper/producer is credited on “New Slaves” and “Blood On The Leaves.” When the album leaked on June 14, everyone was looking for a download link—even Scott.

“Yeah definitely! I mean, had the album already, but I downloaded the link because it was mastered. I wanted the full mastered version,” he tells MTV Hive.

Scott also spoke about the controversial “I Am A God” track. Some leaked versions of the album showed it featured God, but Scott laughed at the idea.

Travis explained that the tracklist was a hoax and the song was never intended to feature The Almighty. “People gotta stop doing that man,” he said, chastising radio and media outlets for spreading the error.


The promotional run for Drake's upcoming new album Nothing Was the Same is in full effect. After unleashing four new tracks as well as announcing the release date for his new LP, Drizzy has uploaded a clip that shows him doing shots out of the Grammy that he won Best Rap Album last year for Take Care. Deem it appropriate or not, the visual hints at the expectation Drizzy and his crew have for the forthcoming album that drops September 17.


Meek Mill pays homage to Lil Snupe with a video for the track, “Nobody,” which features feel good footage of the slain upcoming rapper who was signed to Meek’s Dreamchasers imprint last year. Lil Snupe, born, Addarren Ross, was reportedly shot to death earlier this week in his home state of Louisiana. An arrest warrant has been issued for Tony Holden, 36, in the rapper’s death. According to authorities, Snupe, 18, was shot twice in the torso after an argument over a video game.


And this happened today as well. After multiple delays, Big Sean has finally unveiled the release date for his sophomore album Hall of Fame via a 72-second YouTube clip. Hence, we can expect Sean's sophomore effort to arrive on August 27. This coincides with the the G.O.O.D. Music artist's concert at DTE Energy Music Theatre in his hometown Detroit on August 31. Hall of Fame was initially scheduled to drop December 18, then moved early 2013.
