Travis Scott Gets Animated in “90210” Video
Travis Scott released his debut album Rodeo on Sept. 4, 2015, and though his follow-up Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight is expected later this month, Scott isn't finished with his first vision, the video for "90210" featuring Kacy Hill dropping Thursday (Aug. 18) through Apple Music. "A 6 month project started with Hype Williams finally out," Scott wrote on Twitter yesterday. "Time well spent thanks hype and thanks to that team of urs. !!"
The stop motion video sees the figurine featured on the Rodeo cover come to life, smoking, sleeping around and rapping in the streets. That cover art was actually released a year ago tomorrow, with the time-intensive video and an accompanying merch line bookending the album experience.
Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight is set to drop in one week, on Aug. 26, with features from Kendrick Lamar, Kid Cudi, Kamaiyah and Cashmere Cat. This past weekend, Scott dropped the "Pick Up the Phone" video with Young Thug and Quavo, which, similar to that of "90210" contains some imagery potentially unsuitable for a workplace environment.
The lead-up to Scott's sophomore release has included his own Beats 1 show, .WAV Radio, with which he debuted "The Hooch" earlier this month, and a party by the same name, where he debuted a remix to Desiigner's "Timmy Turner" featuring Kanye West.
Catch the "90210" video up above, with Scott's tweet included below. Though we have the features for his upcoming album, a tracklist has yet to surface, with that likely to change as the release date nears.
