Travis Scott (or Travis $cott, as it’s usually spelled) is the stage name of Jacques Berman Webster II, who is a rap star, singer, producer, and song writer. Travis Scott got his stage name by combining the name of his favorite uncle with that of rapper Kid Cudi’s real name, Scott Mescudi.

Travis Scott kicked off his musical career by forming a duo with his friend Chris Holloway, The Graduates. The two put out at an EP on MySpace in 2008.

The next year, Travis Scott and his friend OG Chess formed another duo, The Classmates. They put out 2 projects, in 2009 and 2010 respectively. Travis Scott produced both, and the two remained a group until 2012, when conflicts and financial arguments between them led to them splitting up.

After dropping out of college, Travis Scott moved to New York City, where he started to work with Mike Waxx, who ran the website Illroots. He didn’t do well in New York, however, and ended up giving up in only 4 months and moving to L.A. in California.

Not longer afterwards, however, the friend who had promised him housing abandoned him, and his parents stopped supporting him, forcing him to move back to Houston, where his parents promptly kicked him out. In response, Travis Scott returned to L.A. yet again, sleeping on a friend’s sofa.

The rapper T.I., who ran Grand Hustle Records, happened to hear one of Travis Scott’s songs called “Lights (Love Sick)” and loved it. He had one of his reps contact Travis Scott when he happened to be in L.A. and set up a meeting. At the meeting, Travis Scott met T.I., who freestyled over another of Travis Scott’s songs, “Animal”.

Travis Scott’s first full length solo album was a mixtape called Owl Pharaoh. It featured songs such as “Blocka La Flame” (which was a remix of Pusha T’s “Blocka” with Travis Scott vocals), “Quintana”, and “Upper Echelon”.

Next, Travis Scott released a mixtape called Days Before Rodeo featuring a song called “Don’t Play”, which sampled the British rock band The 1975’s song “M.O.N.E.Y.”. Days Before Rodeo was a reference to the fact that his upcoming album would be called Rodeo. He kicked off a Rodeo tour with Young Thug and Metro Boomin.

In September 2015, Rodeo finally came out. It featured appearances by Justin Bieber, Kanye West, Quavo, The Weeknd, Big Buck, Young Thug, and more. Its singles were “Antidote” and “3500”. It got great reviews and started off in the third position on Billboard’s 200 chart in the United States, and first place on Rap Albums.

In June 2016, Travis Scott and Young Thug collaborated on a single along with Quavo called “Pick Up the Phone”, which hit the forty third spot on the Hot 100. It went double platinum. In September of that year, his second album, Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight came out and got to the top spot on the Billboard 200.

In response, Universal Music Publishing Group signed him up to a worldwide deal. Soon afterward, he executive produced Cruel Winter by Kanye West.

In February 2017, Travis Scott and Quavo appeared on “Portland”, a single by Drake on his mixtape called More Life. The song reached the ninth slot on the Hot 100, making it Travis Scott’s first featured artist top 10 single. The next month, Travis Scott began his own recording imprint called Cactus Jack Records.

In June of that year, he did a European tour of smaller venues. Around that same time, he dropped some new songs online, which were “Butterfly Effect”, “Green & Purple)” (which featured the rapper Playboi Carti), and “A Man”.

In December, Travis Scott appeared in “Dark Knight Dummo” by Trippie Redd, which reached the seventy second spot on the Hot 100. The same month, Travis Scott and Quavo’s Huncho Jack, Jack Huncho album dropped. The album kicked off in the third slot on Billboard’s 200. 7 of the album’s songs charted on the Hot 100.

August 2018 saw Travis Scott’s third and highly acclaimed album Astroworld drop. It kicked off in the Billboard 200’s #1 spot. Its songs included “Watch” (with Kanye West and Lil Uzi Vert) and “Sicko Mode” (which reached the #1 spot on the Hot 100).

The same month it came out, Travis Scott announced a huge music festival also called Astroworld on the 17th of November that year. He also appeared on 5 different songs on Metro Boomin’s first album, Not All Heroes Wear Capes. The songs were “Dreamcatcher”, “Overdue”, “Up to Something”, “No More”, and “Only 1 (Interlude)”.

In August of that year, a Travis Scott documentary called Look Mom I Can Fly dropped on Netflix. In October his new single “Highest in the Room” dropped and immediately got to the top spot of the Hot 100. He also appeared on “Hot” and “Hop Off a Jet” by Young Thug.

In April 2020, Travis Scott did 5 live shows virtually within the popular Fortnite Battle Royale video game, which got over twenty seven million viewers. He premiered a new song there called “The Scotts” with Kid Cudi. The song started off in the #1 spot In the Hot 100. In many, he rapped in Spanish with Rosalia on “TKN”.

In August he dropped a new song called “The Plan” in conjunction with Tenet, the latest Christopher Nolan film and then another called “Franchise” with M.I.A. and Young Thug, which again debuted in the top spot on the Hot 100, making him the first musical artist to have three #1’s in under a year.

In September, he was the cover model for GQ. In April 2021, he appeared on Baby Keem’s “Durag Activity”. In August, he appeared on “Praise God” on Kanye West’s Donda album. In September, he made an appearance on Drake’s album Certified Lover Boy. In October, he appeared on Don Tolliver’s Life of a Don album.

In November, he dropped two songs called “Escape Plan” and “Mafia”. Then the Astroworld tragedy occurred. At the Astroworld Festival, there were three deaths and hundreds of injuries due to the crowd at one of his shows trampling and crushing each other due to overcrowding and lack of safety regulations being followed.

Video of the night showed Travis Scott continuing to rap on stage despite screams from the crowd begging him to stop, and despite being informed of people being injured. As ambulances were coming in, he was still yelling into the microphone for people to get “wild and crazy”. The rest of the festival was promptly cancelled.

Afterwards, safety experts determined that all of the deaths and injuries had been preventable and that Travis Scott had shown a dangerous disregard for the safety of his audience, something he had a history of.

In 2017, a fan had been paralyzed at one of his shows and in 2015, Travis Scott pled guilty for recklessly endangering fans who he had actually encouraged to climb over security barricades. He was arrested for that.

That same year, he’d encouraged fans to beat up another fan who’d grabbed one of his shoes. Travis Scott also spit on him. That fan sued him for $1 million for injuries.
