Lindsay Cornell: What do you think the future is when it comes to the intersection of art, fashion, music and technology?
Travis Scott: Oh man, I think that’s like the front line. Architecture, technology, apps — very accessible things right now. In the next two years that shit’s just going to keep evolving. Like design, fashion, that shit is back on the front line like it was in the 90s, like it was in an earlier time when it was fire — popping. It’s back on that shit now: more young designers, shit is becoming more easy and just… dope.
LC: I heard a rumor that before Kanye picked you up you were living out of your car. Is that true?
TS: [Laughs] Yeah, it was crazy. Me and my homie Jason, we were both just trapping out of that whip. It was just a time when I was mad hungry like I am now. I still sleep on my couch at my crib even though I have a bed.
LC: If you were to leave one message for your great-great-grandchildren, what would it be?
TS: I’d be like, “In your life, cut the bullshit. Don’t focus on the bullshit, focus on what’s needed. Focus to inspire. Make your intent to inspire. It’s not about the money. Inspire first, that comes with money. And stay true to yourself.”
