Houston rapper Travis Scott is getting Los Angeles city officials nervous thanks to his Cactus Jack pop up newsstand. The spot caused a “mob-sized” gathering in West Hollywood and reportedly some major concerns from city officials.
Travis Scott’s Cactus Jack Stand Under Investigation
Scott is facing a possible investigation by the L.A. Department of Public Works due to his team not acquiring a permit for the stand. In response, the City Attorney’s office is rumored to be investigating the event and whether they should issue fines or take other actions.
“Public Works did note to us that even though they do issue citations for permitting violations…it wasn’t certain that would be done in this case.” (TMZ)
Ben Baller Calls Out Travis Scott’s New Chains
Recently, celebrity jewelry designer Ben Baller took to his Instagram to speak on Travis’ drip. He called out its creator Eliantte for capping about teaming up with famous jeweler Takashi Murakami for the Jesus-inspired pieces. Some think Eliantte responded after putting a simple message on his own Instagram Story: “Jealousy will have you gossiping about a person you should be learning from.”
“Oh yeah. That piece ain’t official Murakami if he didn’t co-sign it or even know about it. Imagine making a piece without the actual artist’s blessing. That’s called ‘bootleg’.”
Future’s Manager Addresses Travis Scott Verzuz Rumors
Recently, the Internet ignited serious buzz about a possible Travis Scott Verzuz battle against hitmaker Future. The original source of the Future vs. Travis Scott rumor was said to be Verzuz co-creator Timbaland‘s manager. However, the Atlanta rap star’s manager Anthony Saleh later dispelled that talk.
“I love verzuz but this isn’t true”
Travis Scott’s Goosebumps Remix Is Must-Hear
A few weeks ago, Scott’s “Goosebumps” song received the official green light from Scott for a remix. Despite having a buzz back in 2020, Scott and producer HVME didn’t officially put out the approved song until recently.
“Today I’m very happy because it’s official,” HVME said in an Instagram story post. The new version replaces the original’s droning hum with a sleek, deep-house groove. Listen just once, and it’s impossible to not get lost in the sway. The Houston rapper’s song was reworked by Spanish DJ and producer HVME in mid-2020 and racked up millions of streams. But it was only officially released Friday with Scott’s approval. (Houston Chronicle)
