Travis Scott

The rap and hip-hop artist Travis Scott is a relative newcomer to the music business having only released his first album in 2015. Scott's real name is Jacques Berman Webster II and he was born into a hard-working middle class family in Houston, Texas in 1992. He was privately educated and subsequently went to the University of Texas until he dropped out to pursue a career in music in New York. After becoming disillusioned by a lack of success Scott moved to California where he couch-surfed at friend's apartments as he struggled to make ends meet. After being forced to return home to Houston owing to lack of funds, at the age of 20 he released his first full-length project, a mixtape titled 'Owl Pharoah' which garnered him a nomination in the BET Hip Hop Awards. After a long struggle Scott finally released his debut album 'Rodeo' in 2015 and it debuted at number three on the Billboard charts. The follow-up 'Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight' fared even better, debuting at number one and becoming certified platinum. Scott's album 'Astroworld' released in 2018 has become one of the most critically acclaimed hip-hop albums to be released in the past decade.
