Travi$ Scott Has a Major Issue With Meek Mill’s ‘I’m Leanin’ Video
Travi$ Scott doesn’t look all that happy as he raps in Meek Mill‘s ‘I’m Leanin‘ video. His attitude toward the visual, which was released today, matches. The rapper took to Twitter to express his dislike for the clip several hours after it hit the internet.
“I DO NOT F— WITH THE IM LEANING VIDEO,” Scott says bluntly. He followed up immediately by maintaining he did like the song.
I LOVE THE SONG THO.

The ‘I’m Leanin’ video features a similar effect to what’s seen in the opening scene of ‘Belly,’ where the club lighting gives the characters a glow-in-the-dark effect. Other than close-up shots of models, Ciroc bottles and a shirtless Meek Mill angrily rapping, there’s not much of anything going on in this visual.
The club setting feels especially small when compared to Travi$ Scott’s own video for his song, ‘Upper Echelon,’ which involves encounters in the woods, a random owl and a variety of eccentricities.
The Houston native, born Jacques Webster, seemed to be in bad spirits even before he slammed the video. “IM F—ING PISSED,” he wrote in all caps on Tuesday (Dec. 10). Scott hasn’t revealed exactly why he doesn’t “f—” with Meek’s video, so only time will tell if he divulges those details.
As far as his solo projects, a follow-up to his ‘Owl Pharaoh’ EP isn’t expected this year. However, Scott’s been enjoying himself, with a recent trip to Japan for Thanksgiving, and is receiving extra exposure from his feature on R&B artist Tinashe‘s new song, ‘Vulnerable.’
Scott is ending the year strong, landing on the cover of The Fader‘s latest issue.
