Travi$ Scott Says He Has To Have M.I.A. And Kid Cudi On His Album

Producer and rapper Travi$ Scott is on the rise, contributing production work to artists like Kanye West and Jay-Z, while still finding time to work on his own music, collected on his recent Owl Pharaoh project. Recently he sat down for an interview with Miss Info as part of Fader’s #Uncapped interview series, discussing his work with bigger names and how it’s contributed to his development as an artist. But even having worked with two of hip-hop’s biggest icons, there are still specific musicians Scott says he needs on his eventual full-length album or he won’t put it out.

“There are certain people that I want to have on my album and if I don’t get them on my album, then I’ll never put it out,” he says in the video. Miss Info is quick to ask who and Scott responds, “Like, M.I.A. Like Cudi. Those two I gotta have on my album. It doesn’t matter about anybody else.”

The video also finds Scott talking about how traveling has changed his music. Despite being born and raised in Houston, Scott has a style that can’t be tied to a single region. “I know what my identity is,” he says in the clip. “Me being in Houston, I wanted to leave there because it was only known for one thing. That’s why I hit NY, that’s why I hit L.A. That’s why I hit Paris, London. I just picked up basically everything but I morphed it into what Travi$ Scott is and into what I know is fresh.”
