Travis Scott’s comeback is in full swing.
Just days after his return to the stage at the Billboard Music Awards, the Houston rapper surprised fans with his Nike’s first fall of 2022.
The Cactus Corp collection. includes apparel and Travis’ take on the Air Trainer 1. To give fans a better chance to score the sneakers, which come in “grey haze” and “chocolate” colorways, he’s running a raffle by lot. A source close to Travis says TMZ that more than one million people signed up in just 30 minutes after the raffle was launched.
The collection, inspired by the “the work clothes seen in Texas”, also includes rain jackets, hiking pants and insulated vests. It was originally supposed to arrive in December, but was postponed following the Astroworld festival, which left 10 people dead.

Travis’ relationship with Nike began in 2017 with the release of his first Air Force 1 design. Over the years, they have collaborated on popular releases including the Air Jordan 33, Air Jordan 1, Air Jordan 6 and the SB Dunk.
If there were any doubts as to whether it had the same fan appeal, the entire Cactus Corp. sold out in minutes. Travis shared a message of gratitude after the fall, writing, “Emotions high. I love you guys.”
He’s planning more Nike drops next week, including an Air Max next Friday.
At the beginning of the week it was announcement that Travis awards $1 million in scholarships to 100 HBCU students. Each prospective graduate who completes their final semester with at least a 3.5 GPA will receive a $10,000 scholarship from the Travis’ Waymon Webster Scholarship Fund.
On Sunday, he made his first TV appearance since Astroworld at the Billboard Music Awards where he performed “Mafia” and debuted his new song “Lost Forever.”
