He’s a rapper. He’s a producer. He’s a director. He represents Houston, Texas and his name is Travi$ Scott. Not familiar quite yet? Well then it’s time to listen up and get better acquainted…
While Travi$ may still be relatively new to the industry, he’s surely no rookie to the game. He learned to play the drums, along with other instruments at an early age, and continued to develop an ear. Travi$ began recording music during his freshman year in high school with the help of friends’ equipment and later his own Mac. Since then, Travi$ has continued to produce and create the magic that is behind his music, moving forward to receive praise from greats such as Kanye West and T.I. He also went on to receive placement on the G.O.O.D. collab, “Cruel Summers.”
While he’s only released but a few tracks to date, the 20-year-old Missouri City native is certainly in the works of conjuring something that is set to take the world by storm and with the guidance of ‘Ye, the chances for disappointment are low if you ask me. His “Owl Pharoah” EP, not to be confused with a mixtape, is anticipated to drop within the following month or so.
If you’re still not familiar, be sure to catch Travi$ Scott during this year’s CMJ performances out in New York. I know I will!
