Rumored Drop of Cactus Jack x Fragment x Air Jordan 1 Highs July 29

rumored fragment Travis Scott Air Jordan 1 Release Date 1

Travis Scott and fashion are seemingly hand-and-hand now. If the ASTROWORLD rapper isn’t making hits, he’s making fits.

Fresh from his Pop Smoke-inspired Dior collaboration, it’s alleged that the Houston rap fashionista is dropping a new version of his Cactus Jack 1s. 

According to the respectable shoe platform Sneaker Newsit’s rumored that the high-top Fragment Travis Scott Air Jordan 1’s will drop on July 29. 

The Fragment 1’s, which is a combination of the Japanese musician Hiroshi Fujiwara and La Flame’s respective designs on the ubiquitous silhouette, is the sequel to his May 2019 drop. 

Last week, images of the shoe surfaced on the web. The shoe features a premium tumbled leather upper in white but is paired with Fragment’s signature blue accents and the large reverse Swoosh on the sides pulled from Scott’s pair. Adding to the design is the duo’s logos stamped on the heel while a sail midsole and a blue outsole sit underneath.

Sneaker News said, “This triumvirate of designer, entertainer, and brand will go down as one of the year’s best releases, and with a rumored release date of July 29th, this drop will stand as one of the most important of the year and of Travis Scott’s ever-growing catalog of Nike/Jordan collabs.”

Cactus Jack’s merchandise has been a hot commodity and the hypebeast and sneaker resellers will make it difficult to cops these drops. However based on past performance and a loaded product page on Scott’s online shop, there’s speculation that an early raffle for the shoes could happen.

This has been the protocol for nearly all of his footwear collaborations. 

Although there is technically no “official” release date for the Cactus Jack Fragment 1’s, the rumored released date of July 29, looks promising.

Tory Lanez Calls Cassidy One of His Favorite Rappers

Tory Lanez Cassidy

After Tory Lanez delivered a firery freestyle on Funkmaster Flex, Cassidy didn’t waste any time accusing the Canadian rapper of biting his style.  And the Canadian rapper didn’t waste any time responding. 

Tory snapped in the booth with his freestyle. While he spit a plethora of punchlines, Lanez also seemingly addressed being framed for the alleged Megan Thee Stallion shooting, which went viral. But when the Larsiny fam rapper heard Tory Lanez freestyle, he heard many similarities in his flow. 

Cassidy took it to Twitter to call out the “SKAT” rapper. Cass said, “I’m @torylanez favorite rapper #RNS Ain’t no denying that  #GoatGang  Show me the respect I deserve & #LetsGetToThisChicken  #BARSisBack #DaEnergy”

Tory followed up and responded to his comments. “U are one of my favorite rappers Cass,” stated Lanez. “What’s the problem?” Then Tory spoke on the respect he had for the Philadelphia battle rapper. “I guess this is what happens when you try to pay homage,” he writes. “The first freestyle I shouted ya name out because you did inspire me. The second one I went on YOUR beat. Sh*t is sad how you old n***as be mad at the young n***as for not showing love then when we do…we get responses like this.”

It’s safe to say, Cassidy could have took Tory’s freestyle out of context, and rather than Cass seeing it as respect, he took it as a threat. At least Tory did not escalate it too far. Instead he showed the world that he is definitely inspired by Cassidy.

[WATCH] Cassidy Accuses Tory Lanez Of Stealing His Flows

Screen Shot 2021 07 22 at 8.33.56 AM

Tory Lanez recently visited HOT 97 and dropped a five-minute freestyle over Cassidy’s “I’m A Hustla” beat, but it didn’t take long before Cassidy noticed that the guy accused of shooting Megan Thee Stallion sounds just like him.

Cas took to IG last night to compare Lanez’s raps with his own, showing that Lanez flow sounds eerily similar to Cassidy, not only on this week’s HOT 97 freestyle, but in a rhyme Lanez spit as far back as 2017.

“I’m @torylanez favorite rapper #RNS,” he wrote. “Ain’t no denying that. #GoatGang. Show me the respect I deserve & #LetsGetToThisChicken #BARSisBack #DaEnergy.”

In the most recent freestyle, Lanez even went as far as saying that he was framed in the Megan Thee Stallion shooting, which only got him dragged further in the blogosphere. Listen the full freestyle below.

Tory Lanez Dragged on Twitter After Claims He Was Framed in New Freestyle

Tory Lanez Framed

Tory lanez says he was framed.

Tory is once again trying to clear his name regarding the alleged shooting incident that involved Megan Thee Stallion.

On Monday, Lanez made an appearance on the Funk Flex radio show to deliver a freestyle over Cassidy’s “I’m A Hustla.” During the freestyle, Tory brushes off how Twitter tried to cancel him and claimed he was framed, which fans speculated is related to the alleged shooting with Megan last July 2020.

“Shout out to DaBaby, Roddy Ricch, and Lil Baby. What I’m about to say is gon’ sound a little crazy, but it’s true so don’t play me. Y’all all would have got your awards if they didn’t frame me!” He stated.

All three of the artist the “SKAT’ rapper named were indeed nominated for Best Rap Song during the Grammy Awards this year. Megan Thee Stallion took home the award with Beyoncé thanks to their Savage (Remix).

Check out a few reactions to the rhymers’ comments below.

This isn’t the first time the Canadian crooner claimed he was set up. He also made the accusations in his track “Money Over Fallouts,”

Lanez asks, “Gotta see a couple questions. How the f*ck you get shot in your foot, don’t hit no bones or tendons? How the f*ck your team is trying to pay me in some whole millions? I just lost like 10 million dollars because this cold business. But I got like 10 million followers that’s gon’ roll with me. Fans that support me because they know my heart.”

Tory Lanez has always maintained his innocence, however currently he is restricted from publicly speaking on the incident while charges are still pending.

Do you think they were snubbed for sympathy or Megan rightfully earned her Best Rap Grammy?
