Travis Scott’s Message To Daughter Stormi On Astroworld Is A Flex For The Ages

2018 is the year of the dad raps. Drake admitted on “March 14″ that he only met his baby moms “two times, two times,” but sadly has only seen his son once. Kanye shared his hope that his daughters grow up to be “like Nicki,” sans “havin’ ménages.” Chance the Rapper defended his family from internet haters on “I Might Need Security” over a Jamie Foxx sample. However, no one has approached fatherhood with the unbridled chaos and supreme flexing of Travis Scott.

On his third studio, Astroworld — which dropped today (August 3) — Scott lets his daughter Stormi Webster know that the competition has nothing on her mother, Kylie Jenner. During “Sicko Mode,” La Flame spits, “Passes to my daughter, I’ma show her what it took (yeah) / Baby mama cover Forbes, got these other bitches shook, yeah.”

The line references Jenner’s infamous Forbes cover story, which dubbed her “youngest self-made billionaire ever.” The business magazine valued Kylie Cosmetics at $ 800 million, and Jenner owns 100 percent of it. In the interview, Kylie admits she might “pass [Kylie Cosmetics] on to Stormi, if she’s into it.” Thankfully, Stormi has options if her dad has anything to say about it.

On “Houstonfornication,” Travis details how he “just built the Astroworld playground to play with my baby, yuh.” It isn’t clear who the baby is in this situation — it could be Kylie or Stormi. Either way, not every infant has the chance to play in their own theme park.

Six Flags AstroWorld is a special place for Travis. The Houston theme park closed on October 30, 2005. In a 2016 XXL interview with Scott, he revealed he “started making music” after “they took AstroWorld away from us in Houston.” Therefore, it makes sense he would want to replicate the magic he felt as a youth for his daughter.

As rappers continue to age and have more kids, we can only hope they devote this much joy to talking about their offspring.

Drake And Lil Baby’s ‘Yes Indeed’ Is A Pokémon Adventure For The Ages

Drake is testing the outer limits of his dominance this summer. His current to-do list — drop Scorpion in June, go on tour with Migos, add a verse to every up-and-coming southern rapper within earshot — reads more like a strategic war plan. The latest upstart to get the Drake stimulus package is Lil Baby.

“Yes Indeed” is quintessential Drizzy. The OVO headmaster opens the song with his usual subject matter: raps about his decade-long dominance, boasts regarding his Young Money family, and mentions of his strip club dalliances. The verse is serviceable, but Lil Baby wisely decides to take advantage of a golden opportunity — not getting upstaged by Drake.

The Quality Control artist opens his verse with a bar so good it should have been a hook — “Cartier glasses, I won’t even peek at you / Yellow Ferrari like Pikachu” — in the process proving Pokémon references are forever. Baby continues to shred the beat with a breathless flow that proves he’s a star in the making.

In a November interview with MTV News, Lil Baby opened up about how he learned to rap from Migos and Young Thug.

“Naturally just me being in the studio I guess,” said Baby. “Like, I just picked [it] up. I been in the studio with Migos for weeks and weeks, and Thug and weeks and weeks, not me rapping, just hanging. But [there would be] time where it['d] just be me and them, so instead of us kicking it and talking, I’m ready to just sit down while they working.”
