Travis Scott promises that fans will "eat" this week
Is new music on the way? Plus, La Flare celebrates his birthday and unveils his Jordan collaboration.
It’s Travis Scott’s 26th birthday today (April 30) and he’s celebrating in several fashions.
This past weekend, girlfriend Kylie Jenner rented out Six Flags Magic Mountain in Los Angeles for an AstroWorld-themed private party (complete with a rollercoaster-shaped cake) that Kanye West, Kim Kardashian and more family and friends attended.
And though he should be the one receiving gifts, Scott has instead spent his birthday morning making promises to his fans.
The rapper took to Twitter to write, “Thank u Mama and God for bringing me in this world today. THAT BEING SAID!!! THIS WEEK THE FANS EAT.”
He also added on Instagram, “BEEN AWAY FOR MONTH. THIS WEEK WE EAT.”
Scott has been teasing his AstroWorld LP since 2016 when he shared the title during a stop on Rihanna’s ‘ANTi’ world tour. Last May, he promised that either the album or his collaborative project with Quavo would be “coming soon” and, as we all know, we already received Huncho Jack, Jack Huncho. Most recently, Scott told Billboard in January that he was trying to recruit Stevie Wonder for the album.
We can only hope that Scott’s new pledge comes in the form of the album, or at least its single.
Additionally, Scott’s collaboration with Nike’s Jordan brand has been revealed via the namesake’s son. Marcus Jordan, son of Hall of Famer Michael, shared photos of the reworked Air Jordan 4s. Named “Oilers,” the sneakers feature a colorway of university blue, varsity red, and black with the phrase “Cactus Jack” featured on both a dangling tag and the heel of the left shoe. They are scheduled to drop June 23.
