While he’s currently causing major noise throughout the nation with his ‘Rodeo’ tour, Travi$ Scott sat down with MTV for an interview. When asked about the approach for his highly-anticipated full-length album Rodeo, he assures that he will drop it in a “fresh,” “super tangible” way and that it will be “super attracted to the kids.” Regarding its release date, he said:
“I’ve only worked with a couple of artists. I won’t drop my album unless I have KiD CuDi on it. He’s part of my story. There would not be a Travi$ Scott if it wasn’t for him.”
He also addressed his recent remarks about the crowd at his recent show in Chicago where he commented that they were behaving like they were at “a J.Cole or a Chance The Rapper type concert.” He states that he didn’t mean to disrespect but that he referred to the vibe of the show.
“It’s not that I dislike J. Cole or Chance – I know both of them. I wasn’t speaking about it in a negative way,” La Flame told MTV News. “It’s just like, I go to those type of shows and sh-t 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.”
He further explains that the inspiration of the tour is drawn from the rodeo in his hometown of Houston, Texas comparing his fans to violent and unpredictable animals. Watch the entire conversation above.
