Tory Lanez recently revealed that he almost got into a fight with Travis Scott at a music festival. Now, there is a video of the argument that could have led to the squabble.
The shaky footage appears to have been shot secretly, as Lanez confronted Scott about their dispute and asked if he wanted to throw hands.
“I said what I said. If you felt a way, and you wanna handle it,” he exclaimed. “I’m saying, what do you want to do? Are we apologizing or do you want to shoot the fade, my ni**a? Every person can get out of here and we can shoot the fade.”
Instead of coming to blows, their conversation continued and the video was cut off.
It appears like their feud was sparked when people claimed that Tory sounded like other artists, including Scott. Without naming names, Lanez tweeted: “I can’t sound like somebody I wrote for…” Scott appears to have taken issue with the comment.
Lanez addressed the incident on “Hate to Say” off his Memories Don’t Die LP. “Me and Travis Scott almost fought at the Mala Luna,” he raps. “We both agreed shortly after that it was music / We possibly could be doin’ / That’s bigger than tryna ruin it / So my apologies, ni**a, just forgive me for doin’ it.”
Recently, Swavey spoke about the incident during an interview with Genius. “We was at the same festival, and we was about to scrap over some shit,” he explained. “Some shit happened, and I think I egged on the fight a little too much, that’s about it. So I was just saying my apologies for egging on the fight. ‘Cause at the end of the day, it’s not like we ended up scrapping. We sat there, and we talked about what you felt, and whatever I felt, and we was like, ‘Yo, we should be working with each other.’”
Tory’s sophomore album, Memories Don’t Die, debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200. Meanwhile, Travis Scott is working on his next album, AstroWorld.
