Travis Scott is the stage name of Jacques Webster, a rapper hailing from Houston, Texas, USA and born on the 30th of April 1992. Since debuting in 2009 at the age of 17 he has been signed to the record labels of both Kanye West and T.I.

To look at the career of Travis Scott seems a lot like looking into the fantasies of any teenage rap fan in the United States of America. However, the only thing about Scott that’s almost too good to be true is the sheer amount of talent that he possesses. Here we are, one of the hottest names in Hip-Hop, with a list of collaborators that reads like a who’s who of the genre’s biggest names and a future so bright it’s dangerous to look at it with shades… is a man so young that at the time of writing he’s been legally allowed to drink for a little over two and a half years?

Scott began to produce beats at the age of sixteen; forming a duo with his friend Chris Holloway named The Graduates. These led to some E.P’s and even a couple of albums but they weren’t to last, and Scott pulled away from both of them at around the same time that he dropped out of college in his home state of Texas and moved to Los Angeles. It was soon after he settled into the city of angels and started releasing his music onto the internet that T.I heard his track “Lights (Love Sick)”, immediately got in touch and soon after, had met up with Scott in person and freestyled over Scott’s track “Animal”.

This would not be the last time that Scott would work with certified superstars in his music career, in fact very soon afterward he found himself in the company of a bonafide legend. Through an industry contact, he managed to catch the ear of Kanye West, who signed him to GOOD Music’s production division production division Very GOOD Beats. His production was even a feature of GOOD Music’s debut compilation album “Cruel Summer” working with the likes of Common, Raekwon, John Legend and his boss over three different tracks.

However, all this work was a diversion from his debut mixtape “Owl Pharaoh”. It was released in 2013 after being started in 2011 and since then, his star has continued to rise rapidly. He’s produced everyone from Jay-Z to Big Sean and seems poised to do great things, with his whole life ahead of him, Travis Scott comes highly recommended.
