Travis Scott recently linked up with British GQ Magazine as part of GQ Style‘s cover feature. In the segment, he spoke on his infamous “fall” on stage with Drake in London, his forthcoming album AstroWorld, his pop collaborations, his hometown of Houston, and more. Check out highlights from the interview below and head here for more on the Spring/Summer 2017 issue of GQ Style, which releases today.

On “falling” on stage
“I didn’t fall, dude, I flew. I was floating. I don’t fall. Shit, nothing happened. Floating is amazing. It’s like getting in a plane. I just flew, man. I’m a magician, like David Blaine. I could never fall. Drake is an amazing person. Also, a magician. He’s a big brother, super-talent, he’s cool.”

On whether there’s a strategy behind his pop collaborations
“Nah, I wouldn’t make music with you if I didn’t know you. If you’re a good artist and if you know it as well, I’m down. So I don’t look at it as pop. I also look at the artist, for their voice or influence, their style of music. I don’t see it as pop.”

On the city of Houston:
“I feel like Houston is one of the leading things in music culture. Everyone loves the Houston culture. It needs to have its own monument, its own moment for artists like me, artists like Beyoncé who set it off. Beyoncé is like the highest level. We all reach for that level”

On his upcoming album, AstroWorld
“The next record is called AstroWorld. It might be the best music that I made. I have two records on the album that are like, man, they are the best. They tore down AstroWorld to build more apartment space. That’s what it’s going to sound like, like taking an amusement park away from kids. We want it back. We want the building back. That’s why I’m doing it. It took the fun out of the city.”
