Travis Scott vows to fight for social change amid Black Lives Matter movement

Travis Scott has vowed to support the ongoing push for social change “in any way” he can.

The Astroworld hitmaker tells The Face magazine that he’s relieved the world is finally opening its eyes to the oppression that Black people have been facing for years.

“People are finally seeing the oppression that’s been happening and overlooked, and that we, as a culture, have been fighting through every day,” he says.

He adds: “We got a voice to try to make change. Allow me to help in any way.”

Black Lives Matter has been a dominant social movement against systematic racism and racial injustice throughout 2020, and was amplified by the killings of Black citizens at the hands of white police offcers, including George Floyd and Breonna Taylor.

Speaking on his .WAV Radio show on Apple Music, Travis previously called on listeners to, “move as one and really use our voice to maximise the attention we need,” insisting, “there’s ways that you can jump up and help move the needle”.

“It’s been a lot of hurt. It’s been a lot of targeting towards our community. It’s been a lot of overlook. It’s been a lot of passive attention… That aggressively needs to be handled,” he insisted.
