How is rapper Travis Scott repaying fans for his album's success? He's actually paying them.
Scott said on Tuesday night that he'll give away $100,000 to his fans using Square's Cash app in an effort to thank them for the success of his No. 1 album Astroworld, Business Insider reported. To win, fans need to reply to his tweet with their Cash app username and their favorite "Trav song."
Some fans tweeted that they received money from Scott ranging from $50 to $1,000.
Scott isn't the first celebrity to give away money through the Cash app. Easy Bay rapper Lil B sent money to his Twitter followers last December using the Cash app, SFGate reported. However, a few receivers reportedly tweeted that he only sent $1 or $2.
Square Cash is a service that lets people send and request money to each other, through an app and even emails. Square is run by Jack Dorsey, also the CEO of Twitter. Dorsey's been under fire lately from conspiracy site Infowars and Alex Jones on its platform.
Scott's agency and Square didn't immediately respond to requests for comment.
