Travi$ Scott will be dropping his highly-anticipated, long-gestating debut album Rodeo later this year, and he’s been teasing it for quite some time. But after embarking on a nationwide tour with Young Thug this past spring the rollout for the new album began with “3500” featuring Atlantans Future and 2 Chainz. Now Scott, who is aware his fans are getting restless, is sharing a new track to hold ’em over while the rollout continues. Here he’s sharing “Antidote” featuring production from WondaGurl and Eestbound, which will not appear on Rodeo. However some have already taken issue with the track, including ATL super-producer Mike Will Made It, who is claiming Scott’s “Antidote” “sounds like” a Rae Sremmurd track. You be the judge after the jump.
