Travis Scott’s attorney debates fan’s copyright guarantee that rapper took centaur craftsmanship
He called the claim against the craftsman over the informal ‘Travis La Flame’ project “silly and ridiculous”

Real time features immediately eliminated it subsequent to acknowledging individuals were attempting to make this look like a genuine collection cover. We anticipate excusing this case totally.”
