Travis Scott is one the most influential people in the sneaker world right now thanks to his work with Nike and Jordan Brand. His latest effort was the Air Jordan 1 High OG TS which featured a white and mocha upper with a reversible swoosh. The sneaker was a huge hit amongst sneakerheads and is selling for exorbitant prices on websites like StockX. With this in mind, it shouldn’t be a surprise that Jordan Brand would want to follow up that success with yet another Travis Scott endorsed sneaker.
A La Flame x Air Jordan 6 collab has been in the works for a while now and over the past couple months, we’ve been getting some pretty detailed images it. It’s been revealed that this shoe will have a glow in the dark midsole and will be dressed in some flashy olive suede.
Perhaps the most interesting information about the shoe comes courtesy @hanzuying who revealed the stock numbers for this shoe. It looks like there will only be 62,000 pairs in circulation which is pretty low. This will be yet another limited Travis Scott Jordan Brand release so if you’re planning to cop these, don’t sleep.
Quality Control is about to feed the streets once again.
The Atlanta-based label that is home to Migos, City Girls, and Lil Baby is readying the second installment in their Control the Streets series. QC artists including Migos and Lil Yachty revealed the Volume 2 cover art on Instagram along with the release date: Aug. 16.
The first Control the Streets compilation was released in December 2017. It debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 and featured contributions from Migos, Gucci Mane, Lil Yachty, Nicki Minaj, Cardi B, Travis Scott, Young Thug, Ty Dolla $ign, Kodak Black, and more.
During an interview with Rap-Up TV last year, Yachty hinted at a Control the Streets sequel. “It’s very tight-knit,” he said of his bond with his QC labelmates. “It’s probably the tighest label out. It’s real family. We can all call each other and depend on each other, see each other if we need to. It’s not fake.”
Quality Control: Control the Streets Volume 2 will feature two new singles including City Girls and Saweetie’s “Come On” featuring DJ Durel and Lil Baby and DaBaby’s “Baby.” Listen to both below.
The baby updates Stormi Webster usually come from mommy-dearest, Kylie Jenner, who isn’t shy about sharing updates her growing daughter and her adorable ways. From their matching outfits to Stormi’s playdates, Kylie’s proud mom moments have shined on Instagram. More recently, Travis Scott has provided an update to his feed his growing daughter that shows f some the words she’s able to say, clearly making for a proud father moment.
As seen in the video below, Stormi sits on Travis’ lap while she mumbles the words “hi dad” and “bye” before giving a big grin just like her dad’s. “Only love Us vs The globe,” the “Sicko Mode” rapper captioned the clip.
Kylie Jenner was recently featured in Harper’s Bazaar Arabia and opened up about how little Stormi changed her life.
“When I became a mother, my perspective on life completely changed, and so did how I look at my own mum and appreciate all the things that she’s done for me,” she explained. “Now I can understand the way that she feels about me, the way that she loves me, and how strong her love is for all her kids, because how obsessed I am with Stormi.”
The last time Wayne cooked up a project, XXXTentacion, Travis Scott, Kendrick Lamar and others featured on the work. As reported by XXL, Weezy F Baby is planning on bringing Lil Baby along for the ride this time. Noting that he’s worked with a ton artists for Funeral, Wayne felt comfortable enough shouting out one Atlanta’s fastest rising young stars during his interview. “I’ve worked with a bunch artists already,” he told the publication. “I don’t want to give up the goods on too many. Lil Baby. I’m a big Lil Baby fan. So it was a swap type thing. You send me a song, I send… that type thing. But actually he demanded that he work with me. That’s a new thing these days. Back in the days when I was doing it, there was no such thing as you send me your song. You had to be in the studio with that person. He demanded that. So I respected that. We got to do the session together. We was out here in New York, not long ago. Probably a month ago. It was him, I and Big Sean.”
Wayne isn’t sure if Big Sean will end up on the final version the track but for now, we can look forward to hearing “I Do It,” the collab between Wayne and Baby. As for the production on Funeral, we can expect a lot from LoopHoles, Rio, London on da Track, MonstaBeatz, and more. Are you excited for Funeral?
The Atlanta-based star appears to be easing us into his upcoming project, bringing it up again with the age-old question: “Who’s ready for this album?” With one song having been released that is expected to make it onto the tracklisting, we’re interested in seeing which direction Thug takes with GOLDMOUFDOG. Jeffery has been known to craft some pretty stunning bodies work and hopefully, his next album is no different.
With Thug’s question out in the open, let us (and him) know if you’re getting yourself pumped up for some new Young Thug. There is no current release date yet for GOLDMOUFDOG, meaning it could arrive at any time.
Travis Scott has been one the biggest names in music over the past couple years and the same can be said about La Flame’s foray into the world sneakers. Scott burst onto the scene with customizable Nike Air Force 1 and then followed that up with the “Cactus Jack” Air Jordan 4. Back in May this year, Scott dropped what could be sneaker the year with the Air Jordan 1 High OG TS. With this sneaker on the market, there is no surprise that customizers have started to develop their own takes on the shoe.
Sneaker customizer @mache275 and @beat2heatrestorations teamed up recently to put together this impressive looking Air Jordan 3 which bears the same traits as the aforementioned Jordan 1. The upper has white leather, while brown print is found on the toe box and the back heel. As you would expect, the signature backward black Nike swoosh is placed on the side. Finally, Cactus Jack and Nike Air branding are put on the back heel tab as a means to complete the theme the shoe.
While these aren’t exactly for sale, these shoes beg the question: would you want to cop these?
Over the last week or so, the Bottle Cap Challenge has been taking the internet by storm. Essentially, it involves someone kicking the cap f a bottle without damaging the actual bottle. It requires skill, precision, and some pretty good timing. Athletes with the proper training and coordination have been killing this challenge, with some videos being more creative than others. As you can imagine, there have been some pretty great failures when it comes to this fad and last night, Shaq added himself to this list.
With the help his friend Anthony Hall who was holding the bottle, Shaq hyped himself up with Travis Scott‘s song “Stargazing” and proceeded to get in position to knock the cap f the bottle. At the last second, instead kicking the bottle, the camera changes and we see Shaq slowly kicking Hall in the face.
A foot to the face is bad enough, but when you consider that Shaq wears size 22 shoes, you got to feel bad for the guy. Thankfully he didn’t strike him hard, although the smell must have been something foul.
It looks like Travis Scott just copped himself a baller vending machine for his fice. According to TMZ, LaFlame just dropped $50,000 dollars for a commemorative Astroworld vending machine.
Designed by Houston-based beverage company Exotic Pop, the vending machine projects a 3D spinning hologram image Trav’s Astroworld album cover, while the 49-inch multi-function touchscreen makes it easy to navigate the machine’s wide array ferings, including soda’s, cereals & snacks. And if Travis or his crew doesn’t see something they like, they can also use the display to place a custom order, and have it delivered to them right away.
The owner the vending company, Charleston Wilson, says they’ll be delivering Travis’ machine in mid-July when he wraps up his European tour. Travis isn’t the first artist to cop his own vending machine though. Earlier this year, Lil Pump also copped a custom vending machine, which came complete with Apple TV.
This news comes just days after Travis announced he’ll be selling $50 custom box Reese Puff’s cereal, which very well could be a part his own vending machine? Check out Travis’ $50,000 vending machine (below).

Roc Nation’s COO Desiree Perez made a very rare comment to the New York Times about whether bundles should count towards album sales. She recently elaborated on those comments to Hits Daily Double. Perez was asked whether she believes bundles should be abolished altogether. “That’s exactly our position,” she said. “Music consumption is the only true metric that should matter. Bundling devalues the art and is demeaning to the artists. It needs to go, and we are urging Billboard to take that step as soon as possible.”
The decision to remove bundling altogether towards album sales might bring down album sales in general but Perez explained this would inevitably put every artist on an equal playing field. “By now, it’s no secret that Billboard will do anything in its power to blunt streaming’s momentum—whether it’s an arcane formula to calculate streams or arbitrary rules for bundling downloads,” she said. “So whether numbers or chart positions are affected, I think artists will be excited for a day when everyone is playing by the same rules.”
She added, “Why Billboard is continuing to filter streaming numbers through what they call an ‘album equivalent’ and not measuring consumption in the form in which it’s actually consumed is stunning.”
Maxo Kream is prepared to release his first official album for RCA Records. The Houston-bred rapper revealed his debut LP, Brandon Banks, is scheduled to drop on July 19.
“This album is me telling the story of how I’m just like my dad except he was a scammer and I was a trapper,” Maxo said in a press release. “Despite his flaws, he was a great parent, always made sure the rent was paid, made sure I went to school, taught me right from wrong. I wasn’t raised to be a trapper, it just happened because of my circumstances. My relationship with my dad now is great – I used to be terrified of him growing up but now that’s my nigga. We’re like yin and yang.”
Brandon Banks will feature collaborations with fellow H-Town natives Travis Scott and Megan Thee Stallion. Production is handled by Mike Dean, Murda Beatz and Ryan ESL, among others.
Check out the album’s trailer and cover art below.
ScHoolboy Q‘s stellar album Crash Talkarrived at the end April and came equipped with 14-tracks with the likes Lil Baby, Kid Cudi, 21 Savage, Travis Scott and more. The arrival the tape made ScHoolboy the happiest he’s been in his whole life and it seems as though he’s hesitant to do anything that could take him out his euphoric state. The “Numb Numb Juice” rapper had some time to reply to some fans on Twitter, eager to know when he will be hitting the road to perform his latest project.

Finally, it’s here in full and we couldn’t be happier.
Canadian producer Murda Beatz’s reputation speaks for itself, and at 25-years-old, the young artist has worked with some the industry’s most sought after performers. He’s responsible for Drake‘s “Nice For What,” Nicki Minaj‘s “No Frauds,” Tekashi 6ix9ine‘s “FEFE,” Travis Scott‘s “Butterfly Effect,” as well as a number other charting hits.
Murda Beatz, real name Shane Lee Lindstrom, recently sat down with Montreality to talk about a myriad topics including his rise to fame and what it’s been like working with some today’s hottest artists. To begin, he said that he makes it a habit investing in himself and his career, mentioning that when he received his first check, he immediately went out and bought a $10K laptop. “You always gotta invest in yourself,” he said. “That’s what people forget. If you create something from nothing and then you start to just invest the money that you make back into what you created, it’s only gonna get bigger from there.”
He shared a story about how he told his friends that he needed to make his way to Atlanta to get into the city’s music scene and two weeks later, he began working with Migos. “I just feel like if you really want something to happen, you’ve got to speak it into existence. Keep talking about it.” Beatz couldn’t say enough kind words about Drake because he always represents Canada and works with Canadian producers. “He’s a good person,” Beatz said. “He’s a creative person, too. I feel like people try to take away the creative process behind his music for him, but he has a good mind when it comes to the music sh*t.”
Check out what else the producer had to say about Drake, the advice he has for producers, and more below.
With the release Baby On Baby, DaBaby became the hottest rapper to breakout this year and it seems like he’s only going up from here. His single, “Suge” took over the clubs, the streets, and everything in between since the video emerged. It’s been slowly blowing up over the weeks, becoming DaBaby’s first-ever Billboard Hot 100 entry. As it continues to dominate the radio, clubs, and streaming service playlists, the rapper’s single is now his first ever top 10 single on the Hot 100 charts.
DaBaby’s “Suge” entered the Billboard Hot 100 top 10 this week, jumping from #14 to #9. According to Billboard, the rapper’s took the #4 spot on the Streaming Songs chart after going up 17% in streams with 35.2M. It also earned this week’s Hot 100 top Streaming Gainer. It’s a major feat for DaBaby’s who will be hitting the road with 21 Savage this summer on the “i am> i was” tour.
In other Billboard-related news, Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road” has maintained the top spot on the Hot 100 for a ninth week in a row with Billie Eilish’s “Bad Guy” holding down the #2 spot. Elsewhere on the chart, Young Thug‘s new single, “The London” with J. Cole and Travis Scott debuted at number 12 and launched at #3 on the Streaming Songs chart. Post Malone also holds down two spots in the top 10 this week with “Sunflower” and “Wow.”
Diplo has a pretty good relationship with most people in the music industry. He’s worked with the biggest stars in the game and also keeps his ear to the underground, helping to develop emerging talent. Apparently, one person he hasn’t had a chance to build a solid relationship with yet is Travis Scott. They’ve previously worked together on a Major Lazer record but it appears since then, things have been quiet between the two.
Travis Scott hasn’t answered fifteen Diplo’s texts, according to the producer himself. Diplo shared a photo himself and Travis Scott mid-convo after a festival along with a screenshot several messages that were left unresponded. One text reads, “hey bro text me back,” on Feb. 15th. A few weeks later on April 4th, Diplo follows up with, “its diplo think something might be wrong with my texts .. hit me back.” After a full month goes by and on May 5th, he writes, “yo trav u must be super busy lol i know how it goes anyways hit me line my guy.” Adding, “are u mad at me.”
Diplo gave a full explanation both the picture and the screenshot in the caption.
“Travis sees me after a festival and says ‘Hey let’s make another song’ Me ‘What’s your new number ?’ Adds number, Texts him next day ‘this is Diplo,'” his caption reads. “notices the number was saved and I already sent desperate looking texts to the same number fifteen times over 5 years. Also I look dumb in this picture because I’m mid conversation about a really fire beat I made.”
Maybe this is what ends up getting Diplo a text back from Travis.
