After much delay due to sample clearance issues, the highly anticipated Owl Pharaoh is finally released in full. Over 13 tracks, the likes of T.I., 2 Chainz, Bon Iver, Toro y Moi, A$AP Ferg, James Fauntleroy and Theophilus London jump on the eclectic mixtape, showing Travi$ Scott‘s recognizable trap-infused approach to hip-hop alongside an acute ear for indie and even dance music elements. “Upper Echelon” has already surfaced as a hit single in the blogosphere, while “Blocka La Flame” nods at his own version of Pusha T’s “Blocka,” before delving into more experimental territory with ”Chaz Interlude” and falling back on an introvert tip with “Naked.” The diverse assortment of hits further accredits Travi$’s recent feature in XXL‘s 2013 Freshmen Class, putting the G.O.O.D Music affiliate firmly on the map as one of hip-hop’s most promising young recruits.
