Travi$ Scott’s reputation precedes him. He’s not the most original artist there is, in fact he’s been accused of outright stealing songs from the earliest stages of his career. Even with the criticism Travi$ has developed into one of the more popular artist around but his new album Birds In The Trap Sing McKnight offer the clearest evidence that he does, indeed, use other artist’s work as his own.
Stealing seems like a harsh term, since surely there was some money or favors exchanged but this much can’t be denied, Travi$ Scott clearly threw two tracks on his album that weren’t originally his. At this point it’s well publicized that “Pick Up The Phone,” the successful first single from the album originally belonged to Young Thug and a singer-songwriter named Starrah from Delaware.
