Travis Scott Donates Merch Sales To Planned Parenthood

Many celebrities are taking a stand amid Alabama's HB 314 law, which restricts doctors from performing abortion procedures within state lines. During the 2019 Hangout Music Festival in Gulf Shores, Alabama on Friday (May 17), Travis Scott decided to donate all of the profits from his concert merch sales to Planned Parenthood.

"I wanna donate my net profits from my merch today to Planned Parenthood," Trav announced midway through his set. Planned Parenthood is a non-profit organization that provides reproductive health care to women, including pregnancy screenings and abortions. "We feel for those in Alabama. I love you all," he added. "I just want everyone to know that love is the strongest thing that we can have...So to anyone out there; man, woman. I wanna dedicate this song to you."

Travis is not the only hip-hop artist that has shared his disapproval of Alabama's abortion law. Offset, Rihanna, Waka Flocka, and Lupe Fiasco also discussed their frustrations on social media. "We should pass a bill that rapist get the death penalty," Waka wrote, while Offset compared the law to a form of slavery.

Check out Travis Scott's full announcement from the Hangout Musical Festival in the video below.

See it to believe it

A post shared by Rita Wilson (@ritawilson) on Mar 21, 2020 at 11:31pm PDT

“We were totally shocked she could rap the verses so well,”  the rap group said via press release.

“’Hip Hop Hooray’ is like modern-day Shakespeare,” Wilson adds. “It took me a month to learn because it’s so complex and nuanced; it was like training for a marathon. The rhythms and tempos are so unique and creative. When I was quarantined and recovering from COVID-19 I wanted to see if I still remembered it, kind of like a brain exercise. To my surprise I did. I thought it would be fun to put it on my Instagram to show people I was doing OK and to make them smile. When Naughty by Nature commented about it, I couldn’t believe it,” she continued.

Back in March,  actor Tom Hanks, Wilson's husband, released a statement saying that he and his wife tested positive for COVID-19 while in Australia.

Listen to the Wilson remix above.
