Anticipation continues to build as “La Flame” graces the pages of CR Fashion Book‘s latest online edition, revealing more details about his upcoming debut studio album Rodeo. Decked out in a Yohji Yamamoto jacket, and the combination of Raf Simons and Helmut Lang threads that date back to the early 2000s, Travi$ Scott shoots the breeze about the inspiration behind his album title, his upbringings in the rap industry, and who he would choose to play himself in a biopic (answer: Ryan Gosling), amongst a variety of other topics. Check out the style outtakes from the shoot in the gallery provided above and a brief excerpt below before checking out the full piece at CR Fashion Book.

It wasn’t only the music and fame that steered CR towards Travi$. Like Kanye West and many of the Kanye West-to-bes before him, he was thrust into the fashion world. His eyes lit up when he saw our racks filled with rows of vintage Raf Simons and Yohji Yamamto spoils. Like most fashion victims, he claims to have gotten it from his momma. “My mom worked for Louis Vuitton. She was a retailer. So she always dressed me in shit. But I didn’t understand it when I was little.” Now Travis’ work has taken him to Paris (and Paris Fashion Week) and he’s “real selective” in his fashion choices, which, of late, lean towards minimalism. “Raf is cool ‘cause it always looked like a street brand. I looked up to [Kid] Cudi a lot and Western movies.”
