KayCyy has taken aim at Travis Scott for not being credited as a listed feature on streaming services for his contributions to UTOPIA.

On Wednesday (August 2), the Kanye West affiliate took to Twitter to call out La Flame for excluding him from being named as a feature on “THANK GOD.”

“Y’all keep sending me these messages … Y’all kno what I do .. ! I’m not no background singer …. fuck Trav,” he wrote in response to a fan wondering why he wasn’t listed after singing the chorus and co-writing the airy tune. 

Another fan noticed how Travis Scott allegedly didn’t repost KayCyy’s message thanking him for allowing him to be part of UTOPIA on Instagram.

“THANK GOD” was originally a Kanye West song that emerged as part of the original DONDA tracklist, which arrived in 2021. Ye is credited as producer while KayCyy handles chorus duties and is credited as a songwriter on the track.

Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner’s daughter, Stormi, also was featured on “THANK GOD” where she lays a few background vocals.

“Goodbyes, that’s life/ Fun times for life/ For life, from down my eyes/ Thank God I’m free tonight,” KayCyy croons on the intoxicating chorus.

All of the star-studded features which include appearances from Future, Beyoncé, SZA, 21 Savage, The Weeknd and more, were originally hidden when the album arrived until earlier this week when they were added to streaming services.

The 25-year-old Kenya native is brushing off the snub and warned fans to gear up for the fall, signaling the arrival of his next solo LP.

La Flame is yet to publicly respond to KayCyy’s request as he prepares to bring the world of UTOPIA to Italy for the first Circus Maximus show in Rome next Monday (August 7).

UTOPIA is expected to give Scott another Billboard No. 1 album, but it remains to be seen if it will topple ASTROWORLD‘s 2018 first-week total of 538,000 album-equivalent units.
