Video: Travis Scott & Young Thug feat. Quavo – ‘Pick Up the Phone’

La Flame goes dark in the NSFW video for his Young Thug and Quavo-assisted single “Pick Up the Phone.”

Travis Scott’s S&M-inspired visual kicks off with a warning: “The following content includes scenes containing explicit and graphic material. Viewer discretion is advised.” And the clip lives up to that disclaimer.

Throughout the brooding five minutes, Travis, Thugger, and Quavo are surrounded by nude and/or scantily-clad women. Scott also appears as some sort of zombie character at one point, with his eyes rolled all the way back.

The Houston rapper premiered “Pick Up the Phone” and “90210” at his .wav party in Los Angeles last night, celebrating the launch of his new .wav radio show on Apple Music’s Beats 1.

Yesterday, on the first episode, Scott debuted a slew of new music, including “The Hooch,” Usher’s “No Limit (Remix),” and Alicia Keys’ “In Common (Remix),” which also features Kanye West.

Expect more videos to come from Scott’s “visual album” Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight, which has a release date of Aug. 26. He plans on filming as many videos as he can for it.

Watch “Pick Up the Phone” below.

Kid Tries to Sneak $20k Worth of Heroin Inside His Kobe 11's

When it comes to the topic of sneaker related crimes, we’ve become all too accustomed to the news about robberies and violence. But, once in awhile, you get a story that doesn’t involve anyone being overtly assaulted, yet still manages to fit the description.

While walking down a pedestrian crossing in Arizona, an eighteen-year-old male was stopped for inspection. This is when it was discovered his “Carpe Diem” Kobe 11’s were, in fact, being used to sneak in over $20,000 worth of heroin. The drugs were manipulated and packaged so that they fit in like insoles. Granted, attempts to get some drugs across the border via shoes isn’t necessarily anything new. In fact, this isn’t even close to the amount of drugs some others had stuffed into their shoes. Nonetheless, the stories are always worth mentioning.
