On Thursday night, the Houston rapper kicked off his “Astronomical” event on Fortnite, becoming the second artist to ever perform a concert within the game. There was, of course, plenty of memorable moments throughout the event, but one of the biggest highlights was when Travis shared a snippet of “The Scotts”—his unreleased collaborative joint with Kid Cudi.

Fans didn’t have to wait too long before the song’s official release. Just after the first “Astronomical” performance wrapped up, “The Scotts” appeared on all major streaming services. Scott also released physical copies of the single on his website. Multi-faceted artist KAWS designed the song’s cover art.
“Ive been wantin to work w KAWS on some shit for yeaaaars,” Cudi tweeted. “This is another dream come true. Thanx fam!! I love it!”

The rappers previously connected on tracks like Travis’ “Way Back” and “Through the Late Night,” as well as Cudi’s “Baptized in Fire.” La Flame has credited Cudi as one of his biggest influences and said he did not receive nearly as much credit as he deserved.
