One of Travis Scott's most successful songs was actually supposed to go to Kanye West.
The biggest single on Travi$ Scott's new album Rodeo was expensive coat anthem "3500" feat. Future and 2 Chainz. But according to a new La Flame interview with Billboard, the song wasn't always meant for him -- it was originally going to be a Kanye West single.
La Flame explains: "I was staying at Kanye’s crib and we just kept playing the album over and over and over. I really woke up and slept every day on this album, man. It starts with '3500.' '3500' was something that was supposed to be on the 'Ye album. Something I did in Malibu. And that beat sounded completely different. That hook came cause 'Ye put my verse in the ASR and chopped it up. That was going to be his single, but he was working on his album so long and my album was coming up, so I was like 'Yo, I wanna fuck with this.'"
Scott also mentioned that he's been working on SWISH. "That nigga is so ready," he said of Kanye. "He’s coming with some shit soon. His album is crazy. I’m glad that n—a finally broke the code with Yeezus to make God-level music which is ill as fuck, bro. It’s super raunchy. He’s like my stepdad."
With Kanye playing a mentor/fatherly role, Scott says they bring out the best in each other creatively. "We always had that relationship where we cook up ideas. We [talk] all the time about random shit... life and how we can do better as people and as rock stars. Our goal is to help people figure out who they want to be."
