Producer Sues Travis Scott Over ‘Highest in the Room’ Beat

One of Travis Scott’s most successful singles is now the subject of a lawsuit. According to TMZ, Danish producer Benjamin Lasnier is suing the Astroworld rapper for using his recordings on “Highest in the Room.”

The lawsuit claims that La Flame stole Lasnier’s guitar melody on the Billboard #1 charting single. Lasnier says that he on multiple occasions played the melody on his social media accounts.

Lasnier was shopping this guitar melody as well as other recordings he made and eventually found a beat solicitor close to Travis Scott according to the report. Lasnier claims that the solicitor, Jamie Lepr, gave the track to Travis who eventually rapped over an altered version on “Highest in the Room.”

Travis Scott has not yet responded to the lawsuit. Lasnier is a Platinum-selling producer with a deep resume in the industry having worked with Ace Hood, Trippie Redd and Russ in the past. Lasnier recently celebrated his first Platinum Plaque for his work on NBA Youngboy’s AI Youngboy 2 LP.

Travis Scott Amongst Many Celebrities to Speak Up Following George Floyd’s Death

Since the unfortunate passing of George Floyd, many celebrities have used their social media platforms to express their condolences for the family of George Floyd and post a call to action following the recent events that took place following his unfortunate death.

Travis Scott has added to the list of celebrities to speak up regarding the death of George Floyd. The Texas rapper uploaded this statement to his Instagram.

“As I pace around thinking, trying to find something to ease the pain… There are almost no words that I can think of to properly express, or I can use to suppress, this enraged feeling of us continuously losing our brothers and sisters to brutality at the hands of officers, or anyone with misguided intentions for our well-being,” Scott began.

“The rage that we are feeling is from direct personal experience and the constant pain of wanting our voices to be heard. To be seen as equal and human, too. We have to change and reform police policy in our U.S. cities, and there needs to be accountability immediately! Especially when officers abuse power to the point where it callously takes a life.

“My heart goes out to George Floyd’s family and everyone who’s suffered loss based on this type of senseless injustice and brutality. Me and the team are gonna do everything possible to make sure these issues are addressed on a long-term basis. Thank u Bun for picking me up this morning and helping me figure out ways I can really help move this forward. Love. See you all soon!” he closed.

Along with the statement, the “Sicko Mode” rapper attached a picture of black individuals in what appears to be a barber shop. The caption of the heartfelt post reads the Earth, black heart, and speaking head emojis.

RIP to George Floyd.

Travis Scott’s Baby Mama Kylie Jenner Accused Of Forging Tax Returns + Isn’t Really A Billionaire

Kylie Jenner Stormi Webster Mirror Selfie Pic 2

Houston rapper Travis Scott‘s bae Kylie Jenner is making headlines for the worst reasons right now. New reports claim the curvy reality TV star might have forged tax returns and isn’t a real billionaire.

Kylie x A Billi

According to reports, Kylie Jenner might not have made it to billionaire status in 2020. Fresh details claim specific tax documents suggest she’s overvalued.

Jenner, now 22, was named last year by Forbes as “The Youngest Self-Made Billionaire Ever.” Jenner had made millions from her company, Kylie Cosmetics, which she later sold a 51% stake to the beauty company Coty in a deal that valued her company at $1.2 billion. But, Forbes’ Chase Peterson-Withorn and Madeline Berg reported this week that Jenner and her mother, Kris Jenner, inflated their wealth in documents they provided to the publication about Kylie’s personal wealth and her company’s revenue. (Business Insider)

Liar, Liar

Financial publication Forbes believes Kylie hasn’t kept things 100 for years. It speculates her team didn’t tell the truth about how much her brand has made on an annual basis.

The business was never that big to begin with, and the Jenners have lied about it every year since 2016—including having their accountant draft tax returns with false numbers—to help juice Forbes’ estimates of Kylie’s earnings and net worth. While we can’t prove that those documents were fake (though it’s likely), it’s clear that Kylie’s camp has been lying. (Forbes)

Wait, There’s More

A few weeks ago, Kylie hit up her social media pages to gush over her boyfriend. Jenner celebrated Scott’s birthday with some precious shots of him clocking in daddy duties with their daughter Stormi Webster.

“DADA 🤍 happy birthday to daddy of the year! i’m slowly but surely starting to accept the fact that storm is a daddy’s girl. 😫 but whatever. we went half on greatness! the most beautiful, smart, loving and funny little baby. the best gift. ok i’m crying. love you forever! @travisscott” -Kylie Jenner’s Instagram

❤🚀🥳🖤🦋” -Travis Scott

Before You Go

The same week, Scott acknowledged his own born day. Travis shared a throwback childhood pic of himself and his parents without his signature braids.

“Since a kid Laflame just wanted to rageeeeee !!!! Let’s get wilaaayyy todayyy !! Love u guys.” -Travis Scott’s Instagram

Drake Reassures Old Kylie Jenner Lyric Wasn’t a Diss

Drake Reassures Old Kylie Jenner Lyric Wasn't a Diss

Drake was on Instagram live Wednesday night going through the vault of throwaway songs.

An undisclosed record started playing but it created chatter because of the less than flattering shout out to Keeping Up With the Kardashian stars, Kylie Jenner and Kendall Jenner.

“Yeah, I’m a hater to society,” Future can be heard rapping in a video obtained by fans and shared to Twitter. “Real s–t, Kylie Jenner, that’s a side piece / Yeah, I got 20 motherf–kin’ Kylies.”

The What a Time to Be Alive duo also gave Gigi Hadid some love. “Yeah, I got 20 damn Kendalls,” Drake raps. “Young slim baddies and they in Vogue / Yeah, I got 20 f–kin’ Gigis.”

The Toronto rapper hopped on Instagram the next day to reassure his fans, Kylie’s fans, and Travis Scott’s fans that he meant no disrespect to the beauty mogul.

“A song that mark ran last night on night owl sound set shouldn’t have been played,” he wrote on his Instagram Stories. “It’s a song that leaked 3 years ago and got scrapped shortly after. He was just going too deep in the drake/ future catalogue.” 

He continued, “Last thing I’d want to do is wake up having any friends of mine feeling disrespected so I just had to say that to start off the day.”

Last year Drake and Kylie were at the center of a romance rumor following her brief split from her baby’s daddy, Travis, after they were spotted at the same places.

But an insider told E! that they’ve always “been good friends.”

Kid Cudi Celebrates His First No. 1 Single: ‘This Means So Much To Me’

After a decade in the game, Kid Cudi has the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart to his name. His new single with Travis Scott “The Scotts” bumped “Blinding Lights” by The Weeknd to take over.

Showing the power of both artists, along with the Fortnite event featuring Travis, “The Scotts” ran straight to the top of the Spotify global streaming chart when it was released.

“The Scotts” will also hit No. 1 on the Streaming Songs chart, with 42.2 million U.S. streams in the week ending April 30, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. The song is also No. 1 on the Digital Song Sales chart with 67,000 downloads in the same span.

Billboard details, this is the first single to hit the top slot for Kid Cudi, it is the third to do so for the Astroworld rapper. “Highest in the Room” and “Sicko Mode” hit the top spot for Travis in December of 2018 and October 2019, respectively.

Additional waves on the Billboard Hot 100 include a surge for Megan Thee Stallion’s “Savage” after Beyoncé came through, floated on the verse and let us all know it was Demon Time.

Elsewhere on the chart, “Toosie Slide” from Drake is in at No. 3 and Roddy Ricch’s “The Box” is at No. 5.

Travis Scott + Kid Cudi’s The Scotts Song Debuts At No. 1 On Billboard Hot 100

Rap stars Kid Cudi and Travis Scott are topping the charts. After debuting their new single “The Scotts” to the world last month and also debuting a new group of the same title they’ve reached the top spot on the prestigious Billboard Hot 100.

Cudi x Scott

The song’s success marks Cudi’s first chart-topping release. It’s also the third time Travis has enjoyed going No. 1 on the Hot 100.

TIP: Listen to ‘The Scotts’ with pure audio quality — Tribit Audio‘s wireless StormBox Bluetooth Speaker has a special deal right now. Get up to 20% off your speaker with code STB10. Grab yours now.

Travis Scott and Kid Cudi’s new collaboration “THE SCOTTS” (Cactus Jack, Epic, Wicked Awesome) enters the Billboard Hot 100 at #1, following its premiere last weekend during the record-breaking one-of-a-kind Fortnite in-game experience.  The first release from the two artists as a group, “THE SCOTTS” marks the third time Travis Scott has reached #1 on the Hot 100 following 2018’s “SICKO MODE,”and 2019’s “HIGHEST IN THE ROOM,” while also becoming the first time Kid Cudi has reached the #1 spot on the Hot 100 chart. “THE SCOTTS” debuted #1 on Apple Music in the US, #1 on Spotify US and Global Charts, and earned the biggest global Spotify streaming debut of 2020.  The track’s #1 debut on Spotify Global Chart makes this Travis’s second Global #1 debut after last year’s triple-platinum “HIGHEST IN THE ROOM.”

Surprise Attack

Scott and Cudder blew fans away with the must-hear record. The song landed just before it premiered on video game giant Fortnite with three different versions.

Boosting its profile, “The Scotts” served as one of the highlights of Scott’s three-day Astronomical event during Fortnite‘s largest in-game gathering to-date, which began last Thursday night (April 23). Scott teamed with Epic Games for the in-game experience, which featured a virtual version of the rapper and a performance of the track, among other hits of his. (Billboard)

Wait, There’s More

The massive hit record is much more than Scott and Kid rapping over a standard instrumental. The hip-hop pair recruited major producers including Cudi’s longtime collaborator Dot Da Genius.

“The Scotts” isn’t the duos first collaboration, but it’s easily the one that arrived with the most fanfare. Hours before its release, the track was teased during Scott’s chaotic takeover of Fortnite. Produced by Take A Daytrip, Dot Da Genius, and Plain Pat with co-production from Travis and Mike Dean, “The Scotts” feels like a symbolic passing of the torch. Instead of Travis paying homage to a Cudi song of yore (e.g. 2016’s “Through The Late Night”), the equation is flipped: Here, Cudi follows in his disciple’s sonic steps. (Rolling Stone)

Before You Go

Cudder went to his Twitter page a few weeks ago to dish on just how much fans mean to him. He also shared an uplifting message to followers about never giving up.

“Happy Cud 😌 all because of you. For awhile I got nothing out of performing, but since 2013 ive enjoyed seeing you all each time. I literally become the happiest man on Earth. I love yall so much. If ur going thru it, and wanna give up, please please dont. I want u here w me❤” -Kid Cudi’s Twitter
