PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA: Drake has put Travis Scott on the impressive list of artists he is targeting for retribution—along with Future, Metro Boomin, and Kendrick Lamar—by using his sniper scope to fire pretend gunshots on Scott's prop head.

According to footage from Drake's recent 'It's All A Blur - Big As The What?' tour performance, obtained by TMZ, the rapper fired some gunfire at Scott's head prop.

Drake fires fake gunshots at Travis Scott prop head

On Monday, April 1, a video appeared online showing Drake firing fictitious gunshots at the inflated head of Travis Scott while performing a ferocious version of 'Meltdown,' his most recent collab with Scott from the 2023 'Utopia' album.

Drizzy seems to perform this stunt every time his verse, "Like TV producers we, grr, we airing this s***," comes on.

After yelling at the top of his lungs to end the verse, Drake imitated gunshots on the enormous Scott head, which became famous during the Astroworld era and was used by Drake as a tour prop.



 

Fans speculated based on the video that Drake did it because of a possible falling out between him and Scott after Kendrick Lamar's 'Like That' verse.

Others who had attended earlier Drake performances on his 'It's All a Blur Tour - Big as the What?' pointed out that the '6 God' hitmaker had done it at each show.

Theories float about Drake's latest beef with collaborators

Drake has had feuds with plenty of rappers, but he has typically remained friends with most of the greatest names in hip-hop at any given moment.

This could be because individuals realized it was advantageous to have a positive relationship with such an overwhelming commercial force. However, it appears that this dynamics is changing.

There are rumors that Drake is currently at odds with one of his main collaborators as a result of this.

In a verse on 'Like That' from Future and Metro Boomin's 'We Don't Trust You' album, Kendrick Lamar took aim at Drake and his current tourmate J Cole, intensifying the decade-long cold war between them.

Although Drake has long been a close collaborator with both Future and Metro, the verse's inclusion on an album by those artists signaled a schism with Drake.

Moreover, the song might be revealing animosity between Drake and his other enduring ally Scott, as it recently debuted at number one on the charts due to enormous streaming figures.

Five days before the release of 'We Don't Trust You,' Scott was seen on camera pleading with Future to perform 'Like That' at Rolling Loud California, which shows that Scott has taken a stand on the side of Future, Metro, and Kendrick, per TMZ.

In an apparently connected development, on Sunday, March 31, Drake unleashed his wrath on a stage prop at Penn State University during his and Cole's 'It's All A Blur — Big As The What?' tour stop.

Drake faked shooting a massive replica of Scott's head during his performance of 'Meltdown' from his most recent album, Utopia.
