Travis Scott has discussed his approach to parenting, highlighting the importance of instilling confidence, self-worth and ambition in young Black girls.
Speaking to Chase B. on Apple Music's .WAV radio, the Hip-Hop artist spoke up about being a father in the current political and social climate, something many parents are becoming increasingly vocal about.
'I feel like it's way more important now to protect our young Black daughters, women,' he said, according to Entertainment Tonight. 'Making sure they have the knowledge of just how to carry yourself, how to move in this world, how to be strong, how to not even be scared to take that risk on any idea.'
The rapper then spoke of the 'pure vision' he wants for this next generation, knowing their gender or race don't have to hold them back.
'Now, more than ever, it's like they have the vision,' he said. 'Whether it's for anything a man can do, anything a woman can do. They got the pure vision. You know what I'm saying? So it's just all about that.'
Scott's comments, which also included a pledge for listeners to get out and vote for change in the upcoming presidential election, came hours before he pledged to cover the tuition of five students attending Historic Black Colleges in the US for the first semester.
Though Scott and Jenner are believed to have separated last year, they are committed to co-parenting, judging by their recent comments and social media posts, recently reuniting to mark their daughter's first day back at school.
In February, Jenner spoke admiringly of the Astroworld rapper, saying: 'We have such a great relationship. We’re like best friends. We both love Stormi and want what’s best for her.'
In June, the beauty entrepreneur also referred to Scott as 'the best daddy' in a Father's Day tribute to her former partner.
