MORE than a million Travis Scott fans reportedly signed up for a raffle to win a pair of the rapper’s new Nike Air Trainers.
The 31-year-old rapper and Nike collaborated on the full collection, which was first released on Friday.
According to TMZ, the ensembles include shoes and clothing items, including Travis Scott’s utility and hoodie.
However, it was the Collabs sneakers that drew the most interest, with an estimated one million sweepstakes requests.
Sources suggested the popular Air Trainers, which come in two colors, raised the huge sum in just over 30 minutes.
TMZ added that the rapper may release another collaboration with Nike next week to fuel further fanfare among retailers.
It could include a number of branded Airmaxes designed and lettered by Scott himself.
The latest collaboration with the sportswear giant marks the rapper’s first merchandise release since the deadly Astroworld Festival, which took place in Houston, Texas last year.
A crowd broke out during the event, leaving people behind and injuring more than 5,000
It was revealed last week that Scott was being sued by an Astroworld victim who claimed she suffered a miscarriage after being “trampled” at the festival.
Shanazia Williamson said she was pregnant when she attended the event on November 5 and lost the fetus due to the “horrible injuries” she sustained in the stampede.
It comes after an investigation found the concert was “poorly conducted” as the rapper continued performing more than 30 minutes after a “mass casualty incident” was declared.
The crowd rush happened around 9 p.m. as Travis, Kylie Jenner’s baby daddy, began his performance.
According to reports, people in the crowd asked the rapper and his team to stop the show because it was difficult to move or breathe.
Video footage from the event shows emergency vehicles driving through the crowd and attendees have continued to share their experiences online.
Travis has repeatedly denied any responsibility for the Astroworld tragedy.
He was convicted twice for encouraging fans to breach safety barriers and storm the stage at previous concerts.
He performed in Miami for the first time since the tragedy last weekend, where he urged strippers to join him on stage.
While audiences loved the hitmaker’s set, many thought it was “too early” for Travis to book gigs.
