Victoria Monét spills the T on an allegedly deceitful situation concerning Travis Scott, Kanye West, producer Tommy Brown, and herself.

Travis Scott stands accused of stealing music files from his former mentor, producer Tommy Brown. The allegations have been filed by Victoria Monét, who if you recall, is actually one of eight co-writers credited on "Sin City" performed by John Legend, Teyana Taylor, Cyhi the Prynce, Malik Yusef, and of course Travis Scott, together joining forces as the "delta quotient" on G.O.O.D. Music's Cruel Summer mixtape. Monét, speaking on behalf herself and the song's producer Tommy Brown aka TBHits, alleges that Travis Scott was living on their couch when he first arrived in Los Angeles looking to a splash on the local scene. 

Monét arranged for a tell-all interview with High Snobiety in which she outlined all of Travis Scott's alleged misgivings, beginning with his decision to go behind their back and shop the song to Kanye West. "Funny story. Travis Scott, when he first moved to LA, he was living with me and (Tommy Brown) on our couch," Monét told High Snobiety. "So basically, Travis Scott took files from Tommy Brown and took them to Kanye and said he produced them and it was on video."

Travis Scott didn't stop there, according to Monét. "He took a song I had written a hook to and took it to Teyana Taylor for her to do and change a little bit. So Tommy ended up finding out because the footage was on his hard drive or something," she continued. "I can’t quite remember but he saw him in the studio trying to act like he made the beat."

With that said, Victoria Monét doesn't want to go on record as saying Travis Scott is a "bad guy," but rather "a good person" nevertheless at fault for a gross misunderstanding. It's kind of hard to ascertain her intentions in coming forward, as it would seem that Travis, Tommy Brown, and Victoria Monét are no longer at an impasse regarding song accreditation.
