Update: Is Travi$ Scott Behind Rihanna's Anti Album Delay?

A Rihanna collaborator apparently thinks so.

Published December 29, 2015

UPDATE: Travi$ Scott says he isn't holding up Rihanna’s Anti release. The Texas rapper responded to songwriter Glass John's claims with a screenshot of the story and a straightforward caption: “Don’t Believe This S--t.”

So there you have it, Scott's not behind Rih Rih's album delay and the Anti release date is still a mystery. ________________________________________________________________________________________________

PREVIOUS: Rihanna’s forthcoming album, Anti, has seen itself delayed numerous times, and now the public’s beginning to ask why.

While rumors have persisted, mostly from her collaborators, it seems the push back is due to numerous factors. But is one Travi$ Scott?

Glass John, who recently leaked a snippet of the song “Kiss It Better” from RiRi’s upcoming eighth studio LP, took to Twitter in a very long rant and pointed at the Rodeo rapper saying he is the primary reason the world doesn’t have Anti and even threatens physical harm to him if anything happens to who he calls his “wife” at the “ghetto unsafe clubs” he takes her to.

“I can no longer be on the low w/ my wife... So now I'm letting it be known,” he tweeted amongst the rant. “I'm fighting to get ‘Kiss It Better’ to the world... But Travis Scott has been delaying it… AND @trvisXX I AM GOING TO BEAT YOUR A** IF YOU EVER PUT MY WIFES LIFE IN DANGER...” John also made numerous other claims including the notion that Travi$ made Rihanna put out “B***h Better Have My Money” against her will and that Jay Z agrees with Scott about the album delay, making Roc Nation hold it in order to build even more anticipation. He also says Travi$ Scott is putting doubt in her mind, further hurting the release time line.

Glass John has a history of working with bigger artists. He co-wrote and produced Pusha T’s "Let Me Love You" from his My Name Is My Name album and even did the same for Chris Brown on "Do Better" off X.
