Travis Scott covered the latest issue of GQ alongside his girlfriend Kylie Jenner for their first photo shoot together, which hit the Web on Tuesday (July 17). One interesting nugget uncovered in the outlet's feature saw La Flame admit that he actually submitted a verse for Kanye West and Kid Cudi to appear on their Kids See Ghosts joint album.

Writer Mark Anthony Green was around Travis while penning the piece and mentioned a random FaceTime Scott received from Kanye and Cudi, who pressed him about sending a guest verse for their collaborative effort prior to KSG's deadline. 

"Travis is excited but not ecstatic," Green suggests in the article. "He sends the verse but he's not preoccupied by it. I want to be clear, and so does he: Travis wants to be on the album. But his musical preoccupations are firmly fixed on his next solo album: Astroworld, rumored to drop later this year."

The 26-year-old has often credited Kid Cudi as one of his main inspirations in music and even told Green that he regards Kid Cudi and Michael Jackson as "musical equals." Scott's verse didn't end up making the final cut of the seven-song collaborative effort between Cudi and Yeezy. It's also not known what track he was looking to make a cameo on.
