It seems Travis is choosing not to respond directly to Nicki Minaj.
Travis Scott has shared some adorable new photos with his 6-month old daughter Stormi. As any fan of Travis will know, he loves to obscure his face in photos, and the father-daughter pics are no exception, as he hugs his visibly happy baby girl, holding her at head-level. Along with the pictures, posted on Instagram Wednesday, comes a message from the Astroworld rapper. "Big mood ! Teach my stormi to love I’ll forever protect that smile."
Over the last few days, Travis has been criticized by Nicki Minaj, who has accused him of unfairly inflating his Astroworld album sales with merch bundles and the like, keeping her Queen album out of the No. 1 spot in the process. One specific problem she had with Travis' use of a tour pass bundle was that his partner Kylie Jenner, promoted it on her own Instagram with the suggestion that she and their daughter Stormi would be there. Fans seemed to find it a peculiar criticism, and began to make jokes about how Nicki had "beef" with the 6-month old. Nicki actually made reference to this on her Queen Radio episode yesterday.
"I know that you guys are saying me and Baby Stormi have beef," she said, clearly amused by the reaction, and going on to crack a few more jokes. "Yes we do. Now, this is what the fuck is happening today. Me against baby Stormi. We have this rivalry now."
Travis, as it seems, has not made a public statement regarding Minaj's criticisms, at least not directly. View his post with Stormi above.
