It’s clear that Travis Scott knows a thing or two about business. While he’s already made a ton of money as a producer and artist himself, the rapper has now expanded into other areas – many that are new and/or haven’t been done for a very long time. He’s going to be around for a while, no matter what the fans are trying to troll him over.
Scott was one of the first musicians to take his talents to the digital/video game world in a way that hasn’t been done before. The smash, runaway hit Fortnite, during the pandemic, tapped Scott for a virtual, interactive concert event – that was held entirely in the game. According to the game, over 12.3 million people watched and participated in the event, a record for the company.
In his latest savvy move, Scott joined with McDonald’s to collaborate on a meal, and it proved to be gangbusters. Following in the steps of Michael Jordan, Scott was only the second person to have their own meal be featured on the menu since Jordan in 1992 with his “McJordan” meal. The Wall Street Journal reported that McD’s had an increase of 4.6 in sales in July, August and September when compared to last year – thanks in part to Scott.
Scott’s taking this same acumen and teaching it to his daughter, he recently told .WAV Radio host Chase B, because now is one of the most important times to protect Black women and daughters.
“I feel like it’s way more important now to protect our young Black daughters, women,” said Scott. “Making sure they have the knowledge of just how to carry yourself, how to move in this world, how to be strong, how to not even be scared to take that risk on any idea.”
“Now, more than ever, it’s like they have the vision,” he continued. “Whether it’s for anything a man can do, anything a woman can do. They got the pure vision. You know what I’m saying? So it’s just all about that.”
Scott got in on the Halloween fun like the rest of the celebrity world did. His costume of choice was that of The Dark Knight, one of Batman’s many aliases over the years. Scott donned his own version of the cape and cowl and stood singular between a few of his own “batmobiles,” cutting on a pretty convincing silhouette as one of the most recognizable superheroes ever.

However, the costume received mixed reactions from fans, with opinions running the gamut. Now, fans are alleging that they ran the Astroworld rapper off of Instagram – as he has wiped all of his posts, including the post the featured him in costume.
As of this writing, the artist’s Twitter account is still up and running, though intrepid eyes noticed that he also hadn’t tweeted since he’d deleted all the posts on his Instagram.
Some true blue fans noticed that this behavior isn’t due to the fans but more than likely due to the fact that the rapper is preparing to release new music. The prolific rapper is still riding off his #1 single “Franchise,” though that was released in September.
