Travis Scott Overcame The Odds To Acquire A $60M Net Worth

Travis Scott didn’t always have it “Straight Up.” The man born Jacques Bermon Webster II in Houston, TX, was raised by his grandmother in his early years. But growing up in the South Central district of Houston meant that he was exposed to a life of poverty and crime. “My grandmother stayed in the hood so I seen random crazy stuff,” he said to Complex at the start of his career. “[I saw] mad bums and people looking weird, hungry, and grimy. I was always like, ‘I gotta get the f**k out of this place.’ It gave me my edge—[it made me] who I am right now.” Certainly, too, Travis Scott has come a long way from South Central Houston. Thanks to a wide variety of endorsement deals — including a $20 million endorsement deal from none other than McDonald’s — a successful music career, and even his extensive philanthropy efforts, he’s earned a net worth of an estimated $60 million, per Celebrity Net Worth. Let’s take a look at all the ways Travis Scott makes his money. Editorial note: The net...

Travis Scott Fans Boast About Using 'Bots' To Snag More Than 50,000 Raffle Tickets For Sold Out Sneaker

The bots won’t let Travis Scott — or his fans — be great. Revolt TV is reporting that the rapper-mogul’s Fragment Design Air Jordan 1 release was tainted by what they’re calling “sneaker bots.” Here’s what happened: some of Scott’s most devoted fans used a bot program called Linear AIO to secure tens of thousands of raffle tickets for their chance to land the coveted sneakers. One entrant nailed more than 25,000 entries, and another landed more than 30,000 entries, thanks to the bot. But while that helped fans who had the program to secure nearly 100 pairs of sneakers at a time, it left other disappointed fans out in the cold. One fan tweeted at Travis Scott, “This kinda stuff is disheartening. You try and try as a fan to show love and support for the artist and no matter how hard you try you lose to a bot who enters thousands of times. I mean… I’m gonna keep trying… but odds are against us fans.” More than 200 pairs of shoes, which retailed for $265 a pair, were secured with more...
