Travi$ fucking Scott, energy at its purest. Travi$ Scott has performed a lot of shows throughout the US this year, whether the appearance was planned or not. To name a few, he made a guest appearance at Trillectro in D.C., and performed with Hudson Mohawke for part of the Red Bull Music Academy Festival. Sure, he's young and some may think he blatantly treats his fans with disrespect, but he's a musical genius. He worked with Kanye to put fourth his 2013 mixtape, Owl Pharaoh, and is now signed to Kayne's production wing of GOOD Music, Very GOOD Beats. Quite the resumé, all by the age of 22, and it's evident he's not stopping any time soon. His performances are unreal. Whether you think it's over the top or not, the amount of energy he radiates and feeds into crowds is something you must witness. New York based photographer, Michael "Snapps" Knapp, only does justice to this statement and documents Travi$' energy which can be seen in his portfolio here.
Just two weeks ago, Travi$ released Days Before Rodeo, his newest mixtape which is seemingly a lead into his upcoming studio album. Now if a track list featuring Yung Thug, The 1975, Rich Homie Quan, and Big Sean don't catch your eye, you will never see the vision of La Flame himself. I found this mixtape to be much greater than his last; production (Metro Boomin to name one), features, and the fact the tracks seemingly run into one another in a story-like manner. The indie rock band The 1975 hops on a track, "Don't Play," which is a must listen, also peep Travi$' ridding a horse wearing devil horns. A sequel to standout track "Quintana" named nonetheless "Quintana Pt. 2," and standout tracks "Mamacita" and "Skyfall." Download this mixtape below, stream it, do whatever you've got to do to listen to this mixtape. La Flame lives on, only his flame grows brighter.
