Travi$ Scott recently took a break from his ‘Rodeo’ tour shenanigans with fellow Southern compatriot Young Thug for a quick interview with MTV. La Flame discusses a variety of topics and gives insight on his concerts, influences, and the new production approach he took for his forthcoming debut LP. Check out excerpts from the interview below, and watch the whole conversation in the video above.

On how he crafts his mosh pit-heavy concert shows after the wild rodeo-styled parties of his hometown of Houston. He also addresses his remarks about the crowd at his recent Chicago show for behaving like they were at “a J. Cole or Chance The Rapper type concert”:

“It’s not that I dislike J. Cole or Chance — I know both of ‘em. I wasn’t speaking about it in a negative way… It’s just like, I go to these type of shows and shit, and it’s not bad, it’s good for them. But at a Travi$ Scott show, it’s none of that. We don’t sit there. We don’t preach to our kids. It’s all about the raging and the vibe and expression.”

On how he credits KiD CuDi for influencing his life and his music, and how he refuses to drop Rodeo without having the Cleveland crooner on it:

 ”I won’t put out my album unless I have KiD CuDi on it. So if you see me drop a date, you know I got KiD CuDi on it… I feel like he’s part of my story of how I even became who I am… it’s only right that we do a song together… It’s like part of my story, man, it’s part of my life… there’d be no Travi$ Scott if there ain’t no [KiD CuDi].”
