Just because you’re on Kanye West’s Yeezus, doesn’t mean you can’t download the illegal leak too. When the album sprung a leak on June 14th, just shy of its official June 18th release date, even album contributor Travi$ Scott couldn’t help but click “Download.” “Yeah definitely! I mean, had the album already, but I downloaded the link because it was mastered. I wanted the full mastered version,” Travis Scott told Hive backstage at the Bowery Ballroom, where he played two nights with Iggy Azalea.

Along with those gigs (which he was joined on-stage by T.I.) and production credit on Yeezus tracks “New Slaves” and “Guilt Trip,” the Houston rapper/producer may be having the best week ever. Before hopping onstage at the Bowery Ballroom, Travis spoke about having the honor of helming tracks for Mr. West.
