While speaking with Clique, Producer/Rapper Travi$ Scott spoke on everything from Kurt Cobain, to not even considering himself a Hip Hop artist.
“I don’t consider myself Hip Hop,” Travi$ Scott said. “I don’t want you to put me up next to niggas cause some of them niggas are just like, straight corny…I think with production I pay very close attention. Cause that’s my favorite thing in music. That’s the whole drive. That’s the reason. So, I gotta just make sure I have that ill shit niggas just can’t get. Niggas just can’t be playing they beats and have the same producer that sound like a Travi$ Scott song. I just don’t fuck with that.”
Scott went on to describe his debut album, Rodeo, as his Blueprint.
“I made the album kinda like—It was kinda like what I was feeling when I was trying to get to this point right now. To be sitting in this chair. And then it’s kinda like a blueprint for kids who wanna do the same. It’s like the inner-child-beast-man,” he said when asked what he wants to control with his album. “It’s kinda like the person that might be misunderstood. Might be mistook as an asshole. Taken as a mean person, a rude person. But it’s really just super-energized. I’m just here for good times, man. I want people to have the best time ever. Especially if they’re around me. I feel like God put me here to help out with people’s soul, man.”
