Travis Scott has been scolded by Dennis Rodman for copying the look of his sneaker designs.
At Got Sole’s recent sneaker convention in Chicago earlier this week, the former NBA player, 61, accused the 30-year-old rapper of plagiarizing his inverted Nike swoosh design.
In a clip shared by HipHopDXthe Chicago Bulls legend held back some of Scott’s 2019 Air Jordan 1 collaborations and asked him to credit him for his original design.
“Travis Scott copied my shoe,” he said in the video addressing the father-of-two — who recently filed to legally change his son’s name with his baby mama, Kylie Jenner, 25.
“Come on, Travis,” he continued. “Give me some credit, you know?”
Rodman further claims that Scott copied the backward swoosh from his signature mid-1990s Nike Air Darwin sneakers.
“You copied my shit,” he said in the clip.
“This isn’t new, brother,” he added. “But anyway, congratulations.”
The Astroworld hitmaker has not yet commented on Rodman’s claims.
In 2019, the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG sneakers were released in a mocha and white colorway.
The collaborative shoe featured a backwards Nike swoosh – which also appeared on other shoes from the Travis Scott collection.
Many fans praised the “innovative” design, but eventually Rodman decided to speak out.
During his time with the San Antonio Spurs in the early ’90s, Rodman modeled the Nike Air Darwin before their release to the public in 1994.
The sneakers didn’t bear his name, but many considered it his signature that he wore during his first two seasons with the Spurs.
Since the clip was released, the record producer has not responded or issued a statement.
Around the same time, Scott was in the process of legally filing for a name change for his one-year-old son.
Scott and Jenner share two children – daughter Stormi, five, and son Aire.
When their second child was born in February 2022, the former couple had originally named him Wolf.
They decided the name didn’t suit their newborn and revealed that they settled on the name Aire in January of this year.
In the legal documents published by TMZ, Scott and Jenner stated that they “regret Wolf Jacques Webster’s initial choice of name” and that Aire “is a better fit for their baby.”
The statement read: “Now that the applicants have had the opportunity to spend time with their baby, they feel the name Aire Webster is a better fit.”
