First words about this expected collab dropped about a week ago when Lyor Cohen hit Snapchat again to talk about something not quite 300.
So in the ensuing days we’ve figured out from Travis Scott that this collab is the first single from his next project, ‘Birds In the Trap Sing McKnight‘ which is coming soon. ‘Pick Up The Phone’ was supposedly due to have an official label rollout but as politics only ever get in the way of music, according to Travis – THIS SONG WAS SUPPOSE TO GO TO ITUNES BUT LABELS ARE MAKEING THIS MORE COMPLICATED THAN IT ACTUALLY NEED TO BE THIS WAS GONA BE MY SINGLE BUT NOW IM GIVING A WAY FOR THE KIDS – P.S. THEY MIGHT TAKE THIS DOWN CAUSE THEY DONT WANT KIDS TO EAT.
So as we know in this business we call music, anything in change in love and war;
BEEN GOING BACK AND FORTH WITH LABEL ON DOING THIS RIGHT. I LOVE @epicrecords LETS GET IT.

So eat kids, eat it up. ‘Pick Up The Phone’ is finally here and straight up it’s off the hook. Featuring Young Thug and Quavo, the track was mixed by Mike Dean and produced by Vinylz & Frank Dukes.
