Travis Scott has been handing out random amounts of money to the sum of $100 00 (about R1 454 146) to fans on Twitter to celebrate the release of his chart-topping album 'Astroworld'.

The 26-year-old rapper - who has sixth-month-old daughter Stormi Webster with his girlfriend Kylie Jenner - gifted some of his 3.92 million Twitter followers with random sums of money, simply for tweeting their favourite lyrics from the record and sharing their cash-tag.

The 'Sicko Mode' hitmaker said he decided to splash the cash on his fandom because he knows it's "hard for the kids".

On Tuesday, he announced: "SO I KNOW ITS HARD FOR THE KIDS 

SO I DECIDED TO UNLOAD MY BANK ACCOUNT ON U GUYS. IM BUSTING DOWN $100,000 AND GIVING AWAY TO ANY FANS THAT CAN TWEET ME THERE CASH TAG WITH LYRICS FROM ASTRO. GANG !! (sic)"

Several of his followers have taken to the micro-blogging site to share the various amounts they received, ranging from anywhere between $50 to $1,000.

Within five hours of announcing the cash giveaway, Travis had spent $25,000 of his limit.

He tweeted: "OK I GOT 75K LEFT. SEND YOUR CASH TAG AND TWEET #ASTROWORLD TO BE NEXT!! (sic)"

Fans could not believe their luck when the money dropped into their accounts. See some reactions below.
