Travi$ Scott, Young Thug & Metro Boomin Are Going On Tour
Travi$ Scott recently let it slip that his debut album, the long-anticipated Rodeo, will be coming out in March of this year. Now, it looks as if fans will be able to catch him in support of that record, as the SEO-optimized Texan has announced the month-long Rodeo Tour. Spanning the entirety of March, Scott, Thugga and Metro will hit nearly every major city in the country, including a stop in Austin for South By Southwest.
Scott's last release was the prelude record Days Before Rodeo, which quickly became a favorite at many major hip-hop outlets. The 2013 XXL Freshman has been most notable for his work with Kanye West, for whom he co-produced two tracks ("New Slaves" and "Guilt Trip") on 2013's Yeezus. Scott has also worked closely with Pusha T, Jay Z, T.I. and a host of others.
More recently, Scott has collaborated with Young Thug and Rich Homie Quan, who joined him for "Mamacita" and its accompanying video. Thugga's inclusion on the Rodeo tour continues an inhuman schedule of recording and performances that has yielded some of the most exciting hip-hop in the last handful of years. Metro Boomin is the young producer from Atlanta most well-known for his work with Future.
To accompany the tour announcement, Scott dropped two new songs--the Future-assisted "High Fashion" and "Nothing But Net," a joint effort with Young Thug and PARTYNEXTDOOR. The former is a reverb-padded glide across negative space, the latter a muted, foreboding turn-up.
