Days after promising "fans will eat in a big way," Travis Scott has delivered new music. "Pick Up The Phone" features Young Thug and Migos' Quavo and is produced by Vinylz. It's the first song heard from Scott's new project Birds Sing In The Trap McKnight.
However, Scott tweeted that the song might not be online for a long time as he had to give it away when his label Sony began "Making this more complicated than it actually needs to be." See his tweets below.
Update, 3/6/2016,: 6 a.m.: The track has now been removed.

“THIS SONG WAS SUPPOSE TO GO TO ITUNES BUT LABELS ARE MAKEING THIS MORE COMPLICATED THAN IT ACTUALLY NEED TO BE THIS WAS GONA BE MY SINGLE BUT NOW IM GIVING A WAY FOR THE KIDS,” he explained. “P.S. THEY MIGHT TAKE THIS DOWN CAUSE THEY DONT WANT KIDS TO EAT.”
Speaking to Billboard last month, May, Scott revealed more about the inspiration behind the follow-up to 2015 album Rodeo. "My next album, Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight is basically about all my friends and growing up here [in Missouri City]. I'm not saying that it's a trap, we not in the fucking projects but it's like a social trap," he said. "It's a social connection trap from what you want to do and how you want to express yourself. I feel like everyone just gets constricted by their parents or just, life."
