Travis Scott Ordered To Pay Nearly $400K Over Missed Super Bowl Gig

Travis Scott reportedly lost a giant lawsuit this week. According to TMZ, a jury awarded entertainment events company PJAM $382,932.79 after they sued the Astroworld architect in March 2018 for missing a gig in Minnesota on Super Bowl weekend.

The Houston-bred artist’s attorney, Howard King, wasn’t exactly pleased by the outcome.

“The jury verdict of $383,000 is disappointing, but far less than the seven figure demands made by the promoters,” King said. “We believe the verdict will be substantially reduced or overturned in subsequent proceedings.”

PJAM claimed they originally gave Scott a $150,000 advance and provided him with a private jet. But only a few hours before the show, he backed out.

In the lawsuit, PJAM stated Scott “refused to show up to the event” despite making it to other scheduled appearances on Super Bowl Sunday. His girlfriend Kylie Jenner delivered their daughter a few days before on February 1.

Luckily for Scott, he recently wrapped up the Astroworld: Wish You Were Here Tour, which reeled in over $34 million. It also doesn’t hurt the mother of his daughter is a billionaire.

Dressed in a black latex dominatrix outfit, Kulture’s mother comes through to give her man a lap dance while giving the camera an eyeful. After straddling Offset, Cardi gets buried in a pile of lemons and twerks in a yellow-lit room while calling out the clout chasers.

“Everybody wanna be this, if I was you, I’d hate me bitch,” she raps. “Read my rhymes, ni**a, suck my dick / All of that talk and I’m calling it out / Public opinions from private accounts / You not a check, then you gotta bounce.”

“Clout” appears on Offset’s solo debut Father of 4, which also features appearances from J. Cole, Travis Scott, 21 Savage, and Gucci Mane. The album opened at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 upon its release in February.

Next up, Offset will return to the studio with Migos for the third installment in the group’s Culture series, due next year. He also recently teased Without Warning 2, a sequel to 2017’s collaborative project with 21 Savage and Metro Boomin.

While the companion album is riddled with a strong hip-hop presence, the two songs in questions are not included under that particular umbrella. Though should you count yourself among the more open-minded, perhaps you’ll find something to enjoy here. “Kingdom One” by Maren Morris and “Nightshade” by the Lumineers have ficially be unveiled, and you can check out both singles below. For the most part, the songs appear to be tenuously linked to Thrones on a thematic level, with “Nightshade” in particular featuring several allusions to political machinations and royalty. Perhaps we’ll see some the rappers involved taking a more direct approach in honoring the source material.

Game Of Thrones season 8 premieres this Sunday on HBO, and For The Throne is set to drop on April 26th.

Travis Scott Expected To Drop Another Air Force 1 In October: Details

Travis Scott has been on a huge run ever since he dropped Astroworld back in 2018 and part that run includes his foray into the sneaker game. In June 2018, Scott released the Air Jordan 4 “Cactus Jack” to the world to critical acclaim.

Now it appears as though La Flame is ready to get back into the sneaker game with a brand new Air Force 1 that will supposedly drop in October this year.

The information comes courtesy  @pyleaks who always seems to have the inside scoop when it comes to future sneaker releases. The pair was shown f by Scott on his Instagram story and now it appears as though it’s not just a sample. It’s actually going to be released and will have multiple different colors patched throughout. There is a lot going on with this shoe which makes sense considering Travis Scott’s eclectic aesthetic.

In the post above, it says that this shoe will be available in family sizing and will cost $160 USD. Since it’s a Travis Scott collab, expect these shoes to be very limited.

ScHoolboy Q feat. Travis Scott ‘CHopstix’

ScHoolboy Q puts on a show in the grand video for “CHopstix” featuring Travis Scott.

The black-and-white clip, directed by Nabil (Frank Ocean, SZA), takes place at a ballet. Donning a top hat, the TDE rapper entertains the well-dressed crowd at a theater while performing alongside ballerinas. A tuxedo-clad Travis plays the conductor of the symphony.

While on stage, Q catches the eye of a lady in the crowd and makes her laugh, but her man is not amused. For his final scene, he makes himself disappear in a cloud of smoke as the audience gasps.

“CHopstix” follows “Numb Numb Juice” as the latest release off ScHoolboy Q’s upcoming album. During his appearance on “The Tonight Show” last month, he revealed that the long-awaited project would be dropping very soon.

2 Chainz feat. Lil Wayne & E-40 ‘2 Dollar Bill’

After teaming up with Ariana Grande in “Rule the World,” 2 Chainz celebrates all things rare in the bizarre video for his Mustard-produced single “2 Dollar Bill” featuring Lil Wayne and E-40.

The twisted clip opens in a family’s living room with a man holding a rare steak while a ventriloquist sits on the couch. 2 Chainz plays poker with men dressed in lederhosen. Weezy spits his verse while lying on an operating table as the doctor pulls out random items including hot sauce, a teapot, panties, and a gold bar.

The oddities don’t end there. Rocking a “Forty Water” chain and a Louis Vuitton sweater, E-40 sits down to breakfast with his strange family, while a bodybuilder carries a briefcase full of raw meat and a man with a third eye peeks from the shadows.

“2 Dollar Bill” can be found on 2 Chainz’ latest album Rap or Go to the League, which also features appearances from Kendrick Lamar, Travis Scott, Chance the Rapper, Young Thug, and Kodak Black.

Earlier in the week, 2 Chainz hit the stage on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” to perform “Rule the World” and “NCAA.”

ScHoolboy Q & Travis Scott Stage Elaborate Show In "CHopstix" Video

Los Angeles, CA – ScHoolboy Q quickly followed up the release of his Travis Scott-assisted single “CHopstix” with a new black-and-white video for the song.

The Nabil-directed visual begins cinematically, opening on a couple as they enter a grand performance hall where Scott acts as the conductor of an ensemble of strings. The curtain goes up and Q emerges from behind an assortment of ballerinas, dancing alongside them dressed as a ringmaster.

Trading devilish grins with a woman sitting in the crowd, Q looks to win her attention from her less than stylish date.

The Grammy-nominated rapper premiered “CHopstix” on March 20 during a live medley on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. He dropped the single two weeks later after choosing to postpone the release out of respect for the death of Nipsey Hussle.

Check out Q’s “CHopstix” video above.

Travis Scott x Air Jordan 4 Revealed In "Mocha" Colorway

Since last year’s release the Travis Scott x Air Jordan 4, it seems as though La Flame has shifted his focus to other silhouettes, most notable the Air Jordan 1 and the Air Jordan 6.

The kicks feature the same color scheme utilized on the Travis Scott x Air Jordan 1 – which is reportedly set to release again on May 3.

Jordan Brand has not announced any plans to release the Travis Scott x Air Jordan 4 “Mocha,” and there’s a good chance the kicks will never hit retailers, just like the exclusive purple and olive suede renditions. 

In addition to the “Mocha” colorway, @SoleSupreme also shared another glimpse  that “Olive” Air Jordan 4 sample, which you can check out in the IG post embedded below.

New Music: ScHoolboy Q feat. Travis Scott ‘CHopstix’

After debuting the song live on “The Tonight Show” last month, ScHoolboy Q delivers his latest single “CHopstix” featuring Travis Scott.

The TDE rapper flexes and salutes the “five-star” chicks on the melodic track, which features Travis’ Auto-Tuned melodies and “It’s lit” ad libs.

“I like her legs up like chopsticks / Luxury in my optics / Your ex man’s on the opp list / I’m validated to pop shit,” raps Q, who previously collaborated with Travis on 2015’s “Ok Alright” off Rodeo.

The song was originally set to drop last Friday, but ScHoolboy delayed it out of respect for Nipsey Hussle.

During his “Tonight Show” appearance, Q also announced that his new album would be “coming very, very, very, very, very, very soon.” The follow-up to 2016’s Blank Face LP has already spawned the lead single “Numb Numb Juice.”

The boost is accompanied by the release the “Wow” music video. The track’s video played a part in earning the song a total 34.5 million streams in the United States for the week ending March 28th, marking a 15 percent jump, also aiding its bump up from 3 to No. 2 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Streaming Songs chart.

The track falls behind “Rockstar”, which topped out at No. 1 in 2017 and “White Iverson” which peaked at No. 8 in 2015.

Posty is now the 14th artist to dethrone themselves at No. 1 on the chart. The last time it was done was when Travis Scott‘s “Sicko Mode” knocked f Kodak Black‘s “ZEZE.” Of all the artists who have done it, Drake holds the record for four times total.
