Published Oct 14, 2016Fans of Travis Scott woke up this morning to find a new release from the rapper titled Days Before Birds on Spotify and Apple Music. As many have suspected, the collection of leaked tracks isn't official in the slightest, and it is now being pulled from streaming services almost as soon as it arrived.
After making the rounds online earlier today, a rep for the rapper confirmed to The Fader that the project was unauthorized and is in the process of being yanked from streaming services. While Scott is perfectly content to hustle you marked-up stuffed animals, having streaming users pay to hear leaks is no joke.
UPDATE (10/14, 1:32 p.m.): Scott has confirmed the album is fake in the most succinct way possible.
The 10-track release featured guest spots from the likes of Wale, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Migos, Young Thug, G4shi and Lil Uzi Vert. Both the Boi-1da-produced "The Hooch" and "Black Mass" were both included in the tracklist. Scott had only premiered both tracks through his .WAV Radio program on Beats 1 in August of this year.
Further disproving the legitimacy of the tape are listings on mixtape websites that had the release as early as September, while the release was listed solely under T.I.'s Grand Hustle label as opposed to Epic.
