G.O.O.D. Music's Travi$ Scott Faces Criticism From Former Associate Shane Morris
One of G.O.O.D. Music's newest artists is facing criticism from an old associate who says, "There(TM)s no such thing as loyalty to [Travi$] Scott."
When G.O.O.D. Music's Cruel Summer was released, fans may have been surprised to find Travi$ Scott as a featured guest. Nevertheless, the young rapper/producer has been gaining traction under the label. Still, Shane Morris, an old associate of Travi$, who says he discovered him, recently posted a blog about Scott, claiming that "there is no such thing as loyalty" to the new G.O.O.D. representative.
"I heard this week Travis Scott signed a 360 deal with Kanye West for $870,000. Am I happy for him? Not at all," Morris writes in his blog. "He might be one of the most purely talented producers and rappers in the industry, but he’s a thief, a liar, and he manipulates what he wants out of people until he’s used them all up. There’s no such thing as loyalty to [Travi$] Scott."
In his blog, Morris claims to have discovered Scott, linking him up with blog sites, other media outlets and studio time when his name wasn't known. Morris writes about how humble he felt Scott was when they met and says he saw that change as time passed. Morris also alleges that Scott stole sessions from the studio.
Additionally, Morris goes on to write about an incident where he had a seizure and felt Scott left him stranded in a time of need.
"You want to know what low, grimy motherfucker Travis Scott is? Late one night, we were all down in the Dungeon, up late, having a party. Music was playing, we were all having fun… and then I did what all epileptic people do from time to time: I had a seizure. You know what Travis Scott did? He left. He and his friend Tony left me. I eventually ended up at the hospital that night, but Travis couldn’t be bothered."
He continues by claiming Scott refused to have him manage his career because of his seizures.
"If there’s one thing you don’t do, it’s use my disability against me, as a reason to say I’m not worthy in my business. Travis Scott is the kind of person who discriminates based upon disability. He steals from the musicians around him. Then, he manipulates people into thinking he did it all on his own."
