    Travi$ Scott is currently winding down his "Rodeo Tour" alongside Young Thug. The inspiration for the tour comes from actual Texas rodeos--soundtracked by two of the wildest rappers in the game. And Travi$ expects the crowd to be all the way turnt up. During a recent stop in Chicago, Travi$ addressed a particularly lethargic crowd, saying he felt like he was "at a motherfuckin' J. Cole concert or a Chance the Rapper type of concert." Needless to say, both Cole and Chance fans took offense to the comments.

When the president guested on Jimmy Kimmel Live last Thursday night (March 12), Obama seemed to laugh off Kanye's remarks, saying, though he loves Kanye's music, "I don't think I've got his home number."

    While opinions of Big Sean may still be mixed, one thing people seem to be able to agree on is that Dark Sky Paradise is a major step up from the rapper's previous studio albums. A few things fell into place that ensured the record would be Sean's best yet, including a bonafide hit, and Kanye as an active participant in it's recording, but a major part of the reason the record came together so well for Sean was being able to record in the comfort of his own home, which he explained in an interview with Tim Westwood.
