Travi$ Scott Spills Body Paint With Young Thug & Rich Homie Quan In “Mamacita” Video
Travi$ Scott keeps good company. His rise to SEO prominence coincided with the rollout of mentor Kanye West's Yeezus, an album to which Scott contributed. While that record overshadowed the young Texan's own Owl Pharaoh EP, it guaranteed him a built-in audience the next time around.
This August's Days Before Rodeo was a coming-out party of sorts, a chance for Scott to step out from behind the curtains. But when he did, it wasn't alone--he brought some of rap's most visible and most exciting young talents into the fold.
"Mamacita", one of Rodeo's best cut, owes much of its success to Rich Homie Quan and Young Thug, who have used the second half of 2014 to establish themselves as the most unassailable duo breathing. (And it doesn't hurt that the song is co-produced by DJ Dahi and Metro Boomin.) The video has everything you want in a rap clip: girls in nothing but fluorescent body paint, shameless product placement, Young Thug declaring "I do not fuck with America."
"Mamacita" is now available on iTunes.
