It looks like becoming a dad may have softened up rapper Travis Scott. A shocking video emerged of the “Goosebumps” rapper nearly coming to blows with fellow performer Tory Lanez, and fans think he avoided fighting because Stormi changed the former tough guy.
It all started when Travis confronted Tory for some disrespectful tweets he wrote about him, and Tory was quickly willing to get physical. Travis, however, was more interested in de-escalating the situation. “Travis Scott about to get his a– beat,” wrote a hater. “Go take care of that newborn baby.” “Tory Lanez is Kylie’s baby daddy until Travis Scott redeems himself,” said another, disappointed to see Travis step away from a fight. A different fan thought it was okay for the new dad to use fatherhood as an excuse not to get violent, saying, “Travis Scott just had a baby man y’all give him a break.”
Travis has a bad boy reputation for getting wild on stage, smashing water bottles, and threatening security guards, so fans were surprised to see him back down during a heated altercation. Honestly, we’re proud of him. He has new responsibilities and obligations now that he’s a father, and we’re glad to see that he’s taking his wellbeing seriously and has calmed down as a new dad.
That being said, his pal Southside from 808 Mafia quickly stood up for Travis and offered to fight Tory in his place. “We ride for Trav, we with Trav, you hear that?” he said in the angry video rampage. Looks like Travis still has a solid spot in the squad, but another fan joked that Southside had to speak out because “Kris got Travis somewhere under wraps.” Keep doing you, bro!
