About

Seven-time Grammy-nominated rapper and producer who has an extensive back catalogue working with hip-hop's biggest stars

Producer and rapper Travis Scott grew up in Houston and began working on music as a teenager, forming a group with Chris Holloway called Graduates. They released their first EP in 2009. A year later, when a part of another duo, Classmates, with OG Chess, they released two full-length albums, Buddy Rich and Cruis’ n USA, both produced by Scott. 

After dropping out of college, Scott moved to LA where he met and began working with T.I. After forming a similar bond with Kanye West, Scott began working for West’s label GOOD Music, even appearing on the label’s Cruel Summer compilation in 2012. 

Scott’s debut full-length solo mixtape, Owl Pharaoh, was due to be released in 2012 as a free download but was delayed. As Scott’s star began to rise, he ran into sample clearance difficulty which delayed the release even further. The project was recreated by West and Mike Dean and was led with the single Blocka La Flame, a remix of fellow GOOD Music name Pusha T’s single Blocka. The album was eventually released in May 2013 and featured collaborations with T.I. and 2 Chainz.

Scott teased his next mixtape, Days Before Rodeo, in 2014 before announcing his debut major-label studio album, Rodeo. The album was eventually released in September 2015 and featured a string of collaborations with artists like Quavo, Kanye West, The Weeknd, Justin Bieber and Young Thug. Landing at No.1 on the Billboard Rap Albums chart upon its release, Rodeo was well received. 

Around this time, Scott also appeared on a number of other singles from artists like Wiz Khalifa, Rihanna and Kanye West. In early 2016, Scott announced that a new studio album was in the works, later revealing that it would be titled Birds In The Trap Sing McKnight. He also confirmed at the time that his third album would be called Astroworld

In September, Scott’s Birds In The Trap Sing McKnight went straight in at the No.1 spot on the Billboard 200. Ahead of the release of his third LP, Scott worked on a number of other tracks with artists like Sza, Drake, 2 Chainz and Miguel. Scott also collaborated with Quavo on an joint album under the group name, Huncho Jack. The group name was a combination of Quavo’s nickname “Huncho” and a play on Scott’s first name “Jack”. The album, titled Huncho Jack, Jack Huncho, was released at the end of 2017.

The following year, Scott released the single Watch which featured rappers Lil Uzi Vert and Kanye West. The single was to promote his upcoming – and long teased – third album, Astroworld. In August 2018, Astroworld was released, debuting at No.1 on the Billboard 200. The song Sicko Mode from the album was Scott’s highest-charting single, climbing all the way to the No.1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100.

In December 2019, Scott released a compilation album with artists on his Cactus Jack label. Afterward followed a string of music videos for singles including Gang Gang, Gatti and Out West. Scott collaborated with Kid Cudi on the song The Scotts in 2020 before later teasing another collaborative album with the rapper was in the works. 

Scott announced a new venture with Dior in 2021, collaborating on the 2022 Summer Men’s collection with Cactus Jack. The rapper also continued work on musical collaborations, featuring on Kanye West’s 10th studio album, Donda, on the song Praise God.
