Travi$ Scott and Rihanna have grown quite close, but the details surrounding their relationship have been scarce. The “Antidote” rapper has appeared in Puma ads with the bad gal and she has been spotted at many of his performances. Scott has been dodging questions about the ‘BBHMM” singer but in his latest sit down with Complex for thier Dec/Jan 2015 cover story, he did describe her as his muse.
And Rihanna. Travis avoids directly putting a label on his budding relationship, laughing and imploring me to not “do [me] like that, man” when I ask about it as delicately as possible. I am, however, able to get him to describe her in three words: “creative,” “inspiring,” and, after a long pause (and some assistance from Corey), “muse.”

Scott also discussed his musical style, saying his tracks aren’t your typical rap songs.
“My music isn’t rappity-rap-rap-rap. I base my music off of lifestyle and emotion—that’s why my music has a lot of chords, even if it’s a hard-ass joint. I consider myself an artist, which is, like, the most played term, but I believe it. Don’t get it twisted, I’m no bitch, n*gga got bars. But I’m not, like, super conscious. I don’t write, I just go in the booth. I’m attached to the beat. The beat speaks words. I love music.”
