According to Connected Cannabis, Scott’s first Cactus Farms release is a hybrid strain that was hand-selected by the star himself. It is an “Indica-leaning strain” that is said to feature a “dense, purple bud that releases a pungent, funky-sweet gas aroma rounded out by a unique berry twist”.

The new collaboration follows Scott’s new Dior collection, which honours the late rapper Pop Smoke. The Brooklyn native was shot dead during a home invasion in February 2020.
Scott’s range with the designer label features a t-shirt with Pop Smoke’s face on it. “U can’t say Pop and forget the Smoke,” the rapper captioned a post showing a photo of the shirt on Instagram. “Now u in all the stores 4 ever.”
The Dior collaboration marks the first time a musician has been enlisted to create a collection for the fashion house.
Meanwhile, Scott’s Astroworld Festival will return to his hometown of Houston, Texas later this year. Expanded to a two-day event for 2021, the festival’s 100,000 tickets all sold out within an hour of going on sale.
The rapper is also lining up a new album called ‘Utopia’. The record will see him “expand the sound” of his music by working with “some new people”.
