Man Blasting Rapper's Album Over Xbox Live Voice Chat Demands 15 Percent Of Streams
23-year-old-man Kyle Pazinski, known on Xbox Live as F00TL1CK3R69, has taken to suing rapper Travis Scott over failure to adequately compensate his work in promoting his 2018 album ASTROWORLD, claiming that his work repeatedly playing the album over Xbox Live voice chat helped the album garner over two million sales and double-platinum status from the RIAA.
“My client has worked tirelessly to promote Mr. Scott’s work, and the lack of financial compensation he has received up until this point in time is a disheartening reminder of the abuses of the music industry,” Pazinski’s lawyer, Adam Lee Nance, stated at a press conference last Monday. “We will be working to ensure a deal that is fair to Mr. Scott, however, one that also rewards my client as he should've been originally.”
Pazinski was much less reserved during the conference, stating, “You KNOW I been on you since Days Before, Trav! You KNOW that shit! Here I am playing your fucking shit on my mic and you gonna act like I wasn’t a day fucking one? I was here since Drugs You Should motherfucking Try It bro! Now cause you got a couple bands and a Grammy you gonna forget about me, huh? When ASTRO dropped I was all fucking NIGHT bro on that voice chat, ‘MADE THIS HERE WITH ALL THAT ICE ON IN THE BOOTH, AT THE GATE OUTSIDE, WHEN WE PULL UP, THEY GET ME LOOSE!’ That was ME shouting over the fucking mic on BO3, Trav! Put some fucking respect on my name!” Pazinski proceeded to punch a hole in the wall of the Courtyard Marriott hotel conference room where the event was held.
Scott, the rapper in question, seemed less than threatened by the incident, refusing any comment but, “Who?”
