We’ve seen it before, a label stopping a project or withholding songs an artist wants to release. We saw it with Lil Wayne, Young Money and the delay of Tha Carter 5, and again with some songs getting withheld from Chance The Rappers, Coloring Book. Often there is little an artist can do about it, but Travi$ Scott isn’t your typical artist.
Last night Scott leaked “Pick Up the Phone” onto his own SoundCloud and tossed up this message along with the song.
He also sent out this tweet with it:
The song was taken down almost immediately, but you can see the frustration Scott is feeling with this label. It must have worked though, because later that night it was officially put up onto Spotify and iTunes.It features Young Thug and Quavo, and is coming with the upcoming album Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight.
This song is CRAAAAZY good.
